Witch Crafting, A Spiritual Guide to Making Magic

Author: Phyllis Curott

Publisher: Broadway Books (Random House)

Category: Religion/Spirituality   Level: All


“Witch Crafting, is destined to be a classic…It is practical while maintaining that Wicca and magic are spiritual paths with a connection to the Divine. I can honestly recommend it for novices and the advanced alike.” --Janet Farrar, Author of The Witches’ Goddess

“Witch Crafting, is a beautifully written primer that beginners will find comfortable and easy to use. But on a deeper level, it challenges much of Wiccan tradition and offers a fresh perspective…I confess that when I read {her} words, I gasped, and then cheered.” –-Margot Adler, author of Drawing Down the Moon

"In her latest book Phyllis Curott takes your hand and leads you into the realms of magick where anything is possible. Passion and beauty resonate in this exciting, extremely relevant and important work." --Fiona Horne, author of Witch: A Magickal Journey

"Witch Crafting is a clever, down-to-earth guide to making magick a reality in the 9-5 world. In witty, wise, and warm fashion, Currot has witchcrafted a treasure trove of foundational information that will be cherished by readers for many years." --Patricia Telesco, author of The Wiccan Book of Ceremonies and Rituals

"Curott (author of the bestselling Book of Shadows, 1998) presents an expansive, poetic and spiritually replete version of the traditional Wiccan how-to. Those who wish to undertake witchcrafting in a serious way will find Curott a wise and inspiring teacher. Systematically covering familiar elements ("Divination, " "Sacred Space, " "Witchcraft Without Rules") , Curott captures the spirit of Wicca as a religion or personal voyage, rather than a means to an end. The result is enjoyable reading for the merely curious as well as would-be initiates." –Publishers Weekly

Since Phyllis Curott first published Book of Shadows, the story of her spiritual journey and initiation as a High Priestess in the Wiccan community, Witchcraft has captured America's imagination as a theme for fiction, television shows, and films. Now America's highest-profile Witch returns to dispel more myths and misrepresentations of her faith, and to share a practical guide to the beautiful spiritual rituals and philosophies behind Wiccan tradition.

Rich with enchanting stories from Curott's own experiences and detailed advice for working with Nature and finding the Divine within, Witch Crafting is much more than just another superficial recipe book. Curott's unique guidebook integrates the inspiration of religious wisdom with sound, practical information. Witch Crafting is the first book to offer readers not only the how-to of Witchcraft, but also the why-to, explaining the profound spiritual tenets behind Wiccan techniques. Filled with both traditional and innovative shamanic practices, Phyllis also provides an empowering new definition of magic and reexamines the ethics under which Witchcraft is practiced, offering a groundbreaking alternative to the Threefold Law. Witch Crafting reveals how to: incorporate Wiccan practices into your daily life; master the secret arts of effective spell casting; create sacred space and personal rituals; perform divinations for insight and success; and tap the magical power of altered states, such as dreaming meditation, prayer, and trance.

Perfect for beginners or seasoned practitioners, Witch Crafting is the ideal handbook for anyone seeking to unlock the divine power that makes real magic happen, and to experience the power and gifts of the universe more fully.

About the Author: Phyllis Curott is an attorney, bestselling author, Wiccan priestess, and pioneering spiritual teacher of the Euro-indigenous revivals who has been widely profiled in the national and international media. Described by New York Magazine as one of the culture’s most intellectually cutting-edge thinkers, Phyllis lectures and teaches internationally on the Divine Feminine, the spiritual wisdom of the Earth and the rapidly reemerging indigenous spiritual traditions of ancient Europe and the Middle East. Phyllis is outspoken advocate for the rights of Wiccans and other religious minorities. Phyllis is founder and president of the Temple of Ara, president emeriti of the Covenant of the Goddess, and a trustee of the Council for the Parliament of the World’s Religions.

Her books include Book of Shadows: A Modern Woman’s Journey into the Wisdom of Witchcraft and the Magic of the Goddess (Broadway Books 1998) , WitchCrafting: A Spiritual Guide to Making Magic (Broadway Books 2001) and The Love Spell (Gotham/Penguin 2005) . Phyllis received her B.A. in philosophy from Brown University and her Juris Doctor from New York University School of Law. She is currently working on her fourth book and spends as much time as possible with her Cairn terrier Gaia in their home on the east end of Long Island, sailing or in the wilderness where she is reminded of what life is really all about.
