A new look at the Old Ways of Witchcraft

Old World Witchcraft: Ancient Ways for Modern Days

Author: Raven Grimassi

Publisher: Weiser

Category: Witchcraft   Level: All


Noted author Raven Grimassi covers new ground in Old World Witchcraft —a title that refers to “an enchanted worldview, ” specifically a magical view of the Plant Kingdom and the spirits attached to it.

Old World Witchcraft reveals rarely discussed topics such as the concept of Shadow as the organic memory of the earth. Readers will learn rooted techniques - methods of interfacing with the ancestral current and with the organic memory of the earth. Through these they can connect with the timeless arts and learn methods of empowerment directly from the ancient source.

Grimassi digs deeply into the cultural expressions and commonality of witchcraft, revealing new information about familiar tools and practices– as well as his own presentation of using plant ashes for magical sigil work.

Old World Witchcraft is a book for people who have had their fill of books that say the same things over and over, who want to take the next step, and who are eager for the more rooted ways that, until now, have remained largely hidden.

Advance Praise:

“Grimassi's approach to Witchcraft brings a vitality and vibrancy to this book. He writes with knowledge, the voice of experience, and the exuberance of a passionate belief. Historical beliefs and practices are seamlessly woven into the fabric of contemporary potential. This is a wonderful book and I have enjoyed it.”
–Rev. Paul Beyerl, author of The Master Book of Herbalism

"Raven Grimassi has singlehandedly put the Witch back into the Craft with this book. Old World Witchcraft is real magic for real Witches—and a must-have for every serious practitioner!”
–Dorothy Morrison, author of Utterly Wicked

“Any Worker of Magic/k will find much inspiration in Raven Grimassi's Old World Witchcraft. The chapter Witches: The Plant People is especially intriguing—if the aspiring Green Witch only adopts using ‘charged water’ for her plants, or establishes a ‘Shadow Garden’—a kind of Magical Compost Heap of non-toxic organic materials left over from Rituals—or meditates on Grimassi's reflections on Mortar & Pestle magic/k, she will have more than recouped the price of the book.”
—Judith Hawkins-Tillirson, author of The Weiser Concise Guide to Herbal Magick

“In Old World Witchcraft, Raven Grimassi effectively strips away the thin veneer of the Wiccan revival to give us credible insight into the truth about the practice of real Witches. From a deep understanding of the secret powers of nature, to the ancient magical powers of the moon, to communion with otherworldly beings and the spirits of the dead, the Witch is a timeless and mysterious creature. Within these pages, Grimassi opens the doorway to the Witches' cottage, hidden deep within the forest of our consciousness, that we may be blessed by the Witch's wisdom once more.”
– Christian Day, Salem Warlock and author of The Witches’ Book of the Dead

“It is important for witches to understand our origins, especially as we facilitate the dawning of a new age. This wise book can help us appreciate who we are. Exquisitely researched, it also thoroughly refutes the ridiculous charges that have historically been made against us.”
–Eileen Holland author of Spells for the Solitary Witch

“I admire bravery and creativity and Raven Grimassi's Old World Witchcraft has both in abundance. In a time when many practitioners fawn over the so called fickle truth of academic perspectives on witchcraft, Raven brings forth mythic truth on what it is to be a witch. This book was written for those who have a vocation to be witches and wish for a path that is modern but whose roots are watered with the essence of the old lore. Old World Witchcraft is a perfect remedy for the disenchanted seeker who is lost in the world of the literalists and looking for the path home to mystery.”
—Ivo Dominguez, author of Casting Sacred Space: The Core of All Magical Work

“On a journey to our magickal past in the Old World to create our future, I can think of no better guide than Raven Grimassi. His experience, scholarship and most importantly wisdom, shines through these pages, illuminating anyone's serious practice of Witchcraft.”
—Christopher Penczak, author of the Temple of Witchcraft Series and The Plant Spirit Familiar

“Grimassi brings together an impressive array of threads from folklore, scholarly literature, history, and experience, gifting us with a tapestry - a vibrant picture of the Old Craft of the Wise - and one possible way to weave a contemporary tradition from the shadows of the old.”
—T. Thorn Coyle, teacher and author of Kissing the Limitless: Deep Magic

Author's Notes: Raven Grimassi is a Neo-Pagan scholar and award-winning author of over twelve books on Witchcraft, Wicca, and Neo-Paganism, including Italian Witchcraft. He is a member of the American Folk Lore Society and is co-founder and co-director of the Crossroads Fellowship, a modern Mystery School tradition.
