Book Description

7 Sep 2004
Wild Witchcraft is a magical, free-spirited philosophy that embraces nature. It resonates with those who yearn to express their inherent spirituality in a joyous, meaningful manner; who sense their wild heart and soul nature; who know there is beauty, magic, and meaning in the world if only we want to find it. It is a magical path for those with poetry in their souls. Evocative and compelling, Craft of the Wild Witch reveals how to practice a form of Witchcraft that is both wild and free. Within these pages you will discover the wild Witch's way of seeing and knowing, how to discern one's suitability for the wild Witch's path, and the fundamental themes of green spirituality. Also covered in this guidebook: -Rituals, chants, pathworkings, and seasonal prayers -Tree meditations, spell-weaving, and trance work -The Fey and other-worldly companions -Herbs as helpers -Other-life memories -Sacred intent and safe practice

4.0 out of 5 stars A truly soulful book 7 Feb 2005
'A Wildwitch seeks to honour the land on which they live, experiencing life as an endless circling dance or enchantment and devotion, finding magic in the mundane and inspiration in the midst of modern existence.' Poppy Palin
What a delightful new exploration in the midst of so many 'how to be a witch' books that have hit the market. This is a natural and honest exploration of the inner realms. Pomp and ceremony has been excluded (although a little guidance on creating magical ceremony is offered) as has any allusion to hierarchical mystery, and yet all the delight of natural magic and mystery is retained. Here is a book for beginners and the more experienced alike. Although written for adults, this is a book that you would be thrilled (rather than nervous or dubious) for your children to read on their spiritual path.
Craft of the Wild Witch manages to be both grounded and spiritual, being rooted in the poetry of the Earth. Thankfully, for the more eclectic witches among us, there are no Wiccan structures to adhere to. Moon phases, divination and the Sabbats are covered but even these more exhausted subjects are given a fresh slant with Poppy's poetic descriptions. Guidance on spellworking is offered in a way that I found to be more in tune with natural laws and less prescriptive than many other texts. The author takes us on trance journeys (guided visualisations) as well as detailing some of the various reasons for feeling the need to do this. The journeys provided take us to meet Green Jack, Moon Mother, our Spirit Guides, our Otherworld Self and to connect with the strength of trees. Thus, the necessary is covered as well as some more original journeys that I haven't seen elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 3 Jan 2005
This is a book for the experienced practitioner as well as for the beginner. In a lovely and very poetic way the author gives us a multitude of new ideas, rituals, journeys, meditations - especially for those who think there's nothing new published in this area within the last years. This book has given me (a practicing witch since 20 years now) many, many new wonderful insights and is a true eye-opener for those who seek to experience the fey kingdom. The beautiful warm and caring way in which the author shows you how to make your very own unique experiences is, IMHO, absolutely highly recommendable for all those interested to walk the green way off the beaten track. A must-have for all you witches out there! My heartfelt thanks to the author for this brilliant book!

From the first chapter i was hooked, it was like everything i had thoughts on.

I didn't so much as read the book as "felt" it from cover to cover, it has acted as an inspiration to me working with nature.

Poppy has a wonderfully lyrical nature which comes through in all her books, she also does not precribe how things should be done and appreciates that any craft working with nature should reflect the fluidity of nature and nature spirits.

A wonderful guide

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favourite Handbook! 5 Oct 2008
By Customer VINE VOICE
I truly love and adore this book. It was such a wonderful surprise to actually want to not only keep the book itself for its inherent beauty but also to apply the work within it to my life and practice!

'Craft of the Wild Witch: Green Spirituality and Natural Enchantment' by Poppy Palin is a rain-soaked trudge through the woods it's a pleasant breeze in the afternoon sun and it's Robin Red-breast flitting around your garden. It's all these things and more. What Craft of the 'Wild Witch' is, is a no nonsense earthy manual to living life the green way, living life in eternal reverence with nature and all its vibrant inhabitance. Palin writes in a lovely ethereal yet down to earth sense; she uses the language of the earth to poetically express the feeling of connection to the land we live on.

The book covers the following topics: green magic, navigating the Otherworld, creating your own meditation spot in the Otherworld, spirit guides, connecting to the land and herbalism. Each topic is written about in a fun and fresh manner; indeed if you only take one thing away from this book it should be that the earth and everything in it is alive and brimming with glorious exuberant life.

Palin has combined a nice blend of Shamanic practices with folk magic and some aspects inherent in traditional witchcraft. She doesn't believe in gods and instead is firmly animistic in outlook -- believing that everything holds within it a life force, a soul or spirit. I'm also an animist but I'm also a polytheist! But her chapters on Jack in the Green and Moon Mother were interesting to me as well as her reasons for her spiritual world view. The whole book has helped give me a focus for my practice and has shown me what's important -- whilst it can be a little neo-pagan here and there, and the stuff on chakras and circle casting really wasn't needed or suitable it's a valuable, imperfect tool for those willing to step into the green.
