Product Description

Review

Harmonia Saille's two books on Hedge Witchcraft are a true delight, being both informative and entertaining. Hedge Witchcraft is often mentioned 'in passing' but seldom examined in detail. Harmonia rectifies that oversight with her revelations of that practice as it may be followed throughout the year. Anyone, Witch or otherwise, who feels a true affinity with Nature will appreciate the explanations and teachings found in these books. I very much recommend them. (Raymond Buckland)

Product Description

Hedge witchery in general is experiential and a slow and natural progression of interests and events often experienced from childhood and persisting all through your life. As Aristotle said, ‘For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them.’Learning by experiencing is about trusting your instincts and connecting with your inner spirit.There is no dogma attached to hedge witchcraft. There are no tenets to follow. The path of a hedge witch is very much an individual one, and it is a solitary practice. In this way, this book is based on my own experiences as a hedge witch living in Ireland and following a Celtic path.This book will guide you if you wish to read more about hedge witchcraft as a pathway, or are already following such a path and wish to progress. It only has a little about hedge riding as this book has too small a scope to include it. Please read my accompanying book in the Pagan Portal series, Hedge Riding.

5.0 out of 5 stars delightful, insightful and entertaining 1 Sep 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I didn't really know that much about being a hedge witch and was looking forward to reading this book. I wasn't dissapointed! It is very well written in a style that is homely, comfortable and yet precise. It has so many interesting chapters that you don't realise how much you are learning. It is certainly not a 'preachy' book. The author takes you through her craft with anecdotes and her own individual lessons. It is a joy to read as there is a relaxed feeling of an old friend passing on knowledge and giving her mature guidance.
Coming from a shamanic background myself, many aspects were familiar. Yet, there were lots of things I didn't know and I took pleasure in the new knowledge. I was totally enchanted with the information on trees and herbs.
I don't think I have had such a gentle , enjoyable read for a long while. I am now away to seek out the companion book on Hedge Riding.

This is a really nice little book about folk magic, natural magical correspondences and the pagan calander. I really liked the section on "Spirit of Place".

However, it isn't specifically about Hedge Witchcraft. It made little mention of hedge riding, referring you to another book by the same author. Given that neither book is hugely long I don't see why they weren't intergrated, espaecially given the importance of hedge riding to this path.

If you are after a short guide to traditionally based witchcraft then this is a really interesting little read. But, if you have a decent background knowledge of general traditional witchcraft then this may not give you much new info.

4.0 out of 5 stars lovely! 13 Aug 2012
Format:Paperback
This little book has all you need to know about the basics of Hedge Witchcraft. Harmonia starts by introducing us to what Hedge Witches do, how they connect with nature and the spirit of a place, it also introduces us to ritual tools and familiars.

It then goes on to describe the Celtic festivals of the year and how a hedge witch views them, along with a good section on the elements and the magic that they hold.

The section on Sacred Trees takes us through each tree and what characteristics and energies it holds followed by a section on herbal lore.

Harmonia then dips into folk lore and divination from a Hedge Witch viewpoint.

An interesting book where Harmonia shares her own experiences of Hedge Witchcraft, good for anyone interested in following this path.

Hedge Witchcraft is a simple, practical approach to Magick, free from dogma and doctrine.
Following requests from fans of her previous works, experienced hedgewitch, Harmonia Saille takes the reader on a journey of discovery as she explores Festivals, Sacred Trees, Herbal Lore, Folk Magick and Divination.

Unlike similar books on the subject, which often blend the tradition with other paths (Wicca being the most common) this book stays true to the roots of what Hedge Witchcraft is, and isn't. Pagans who enjoy a more hands-on approach to magick will certainly feel at home. Hedge Witchcraft is packed with reliable, straight-forward information, with an emphasis on individuality - the reader is encouraged to draw their own conclusions and to act on the knowledge they receive. Hedge Riding - the practice of Shamanic and Astral voyage - is covered in-depth in her follow-up book: Pagan Portals Hedge Riding.

Harmonia's engaging but friendly style of writing is empowering, through simple exercises, poems, charms, spells and anecdotes she demonstrates that you do not need to be initiated in order to connect with the life-force. I particularly enjoyed the Shapeshifting Exercise and Journal entries of her day-to-day life as a modern witch in Ireland. It was refreshing to see concepts other than those found in Pagan 101 books discussed, such as the Magical 4s and Land, Sea and Sky.

It is fitting that the book ends with the words "I love being a hedgewitch, it is what I am all about". Harmonia's passion for the subject is evident, and reading her words made me smile, I felt as though I were having a cup of tea and a chat with an old friend. With an open mind and an appreciation of nature this book will help you find your own magick.

4.0 out of 5 stars Magic within Nature 15 Dec 2013
By Tahlia
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A great guide to exploring and experiencing the energies within Nature, taking the craft back to its raw beauty within the guise of the woodlands...honouring the simplicity and harmony of our environment through the tenderness and love as a witch of nature. I feel this represents a fairly accurate description of the importance of connecting with natural energies within the craft.
