Practitioners with many years of experience describe what real Witches actually do.

The writers of Practising the Witch's Craft 'provide deep insights for newcomers and for experienced witches into what it means to be a contemporary witch and how witches practise their art and integrate their magic with everyday life.

Vivianne Crowley, author of Wicca: The Old Religion in the New Millennium and The Natural Magician

Practising the Witch's Craft tells the stories of ordinary people who have discovered that life is enchanted and that Witchcraft works for them. Much more than a book of spells, it shows how Witchcraft celebrates the pleasure and mystery of life.

Leaders of the Witchcraft movement and practitioners with many years of experience talk about what real Witches actually do. They describe powerful rituals and moving magical encounters, and discuss how they work with natural forces, including sexuality and the seasons. They also explain how to do spells, create personal rituals, use incense and herbs, and find a coven.

Witchcraft is a living spirituality that gives meaning and purpose in life and helps practitioners cope with hard times. With insights from many different traditions including Wicca and Paganism, Practising the Witch's Craft invites you into the world of contemporary Witchcraft.
