RECENT REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS

  • Arc of the Goddess
    Rachel Patterson
    Tracey Roberts
    This books is, honestly, amazing, and this is coming from a girl who makes it her effort to collect Pagan/Women's Spirituality focused on Goddess Worship. Each chapter is broken down into months. The months are, then, broken down into deities, feast/celebration days by date/focus, goddesses, seasonal energy work, moon lore, the celtic moon calendar for that month, that month's ritual, crystals, oil blends, altar setups, mandals, and activities.

    I loved this book so much. I find it an immersive, intensive, amazing resource. ~ Amanda Tillman, To 1% GoodReads Reviewer

  • Pagan Portals - Animal Magic
    Rachel Patterson
    I get questions about animal Magick and spirit animals all the time. This, along with my go-to by the late Ted Andrews, will be my suggested reading. Well written and most of all valuable to the Pagan Community ~ Larry Zaracon Sodders, The Zaracon Show/Pagans Tonight Radio/Pagan Weekly News/ Pagans Musings Podcast Channel.

  • Pagan Portals - Hekate
    Vivienne Moss
    Vivienne Moss’ Hekate: A Devotional is part grimoire, part poetry, part devotional and part spiritual diary. There are many published books on Hekate, most of them scholarly, academic or historical. This on the other hand is not that. The book is a time capsule containing mostly the relationship between Hekate and the author, a solitary hedge witch from Indiana. Sharing personal gnosis is a brave and vulnerable gift to the world, especially when it goes against what is established about a deity. Yet this book is not about fanciful reveries or made-up information, it is about the living spirit of Hekate in today’s age and much of it can be verified by the personal gnosis of other practitioners, even if it does not abide by history’s records.

    Much of this book breaks the orthodoxy of the established history of Hekate, which is part of what I loved about this book. Humans often like to put things into nice and orderly boxes, including the gods themselves. However, if there’s one deity who defies dogma, orthodoxy and established rules it is most definitely Hekate. From fighting with the Olympians against her fellow Titans in the Titanomarchy to being the patron goddess of witches and outcast who defy conventional norms. She appears in extreme different forms and aspects throughout culture to culture and time period to time period. The vast spirit who is Hekate always challenges preconceived notions of who she is. She is not some relic of ancient history but rather a living spirit who shifts within history from Titan to Goddess to World Soul to Witch Queen.

    I have found Hekate within this book, many of the experiences paralleling my own and many that were very different than mine. This includes many experiences that I have not read in any other book. While it is a small book at only 96 pages, the book itself is brim full of soul. It is completely evident to me as a devotee of Hekate that Vivienne is indeed in contact with Her. While an oddity amongst my other books on Hekate it is perhaps one of my favorites for this reason. ~ Mat Auryn, Mat Auryn

  • Pagan Portals - By Wolfsbane & Mandrake Root
    Melusine Draco
    By Wolfsbane & Mandrake Root takes the reader through the histories and lore of a number of poisonous plants and then offers some thoughts on possible applications in modern magic or witchcraft. Brief monographs feature select botanicals with descriptions of identification, an overview of their poisonous qualities, and how they might be useful in a binding or curse.

    I enjoyed the book, particularly the history and the chapter on bottling. I'd recommend this for plant geeks and pagans alike. ~ Amy Kreydin, GoodRead

  • Arc of the Goddess
    Rachel Patterson
    Tracey Roberts
    I took the Arc of the Goddess course within the Kitchen Witch School of Natural Witchery as part of my studies.
    I followed and honoured the Sabbats but felt intrigued into working with the seasons and the changes that each month - and indeed - each day brings within our natural world and ourselves. It also gave me a wonderful chance to work with a different Goddess each month. I waited with anticipation at the beginning of each month to see which one would come to me in meditation. Some were expected - others were new to me but each one always had an important message for me and I felt that I learnt something from each one.
    Preparing meals with the seasons in mind, crafting, meditating and connecting with the Goddess made this a fabulous course to do. It gave me an opportunity to look at and work closely with the Goddess, something that was relatively new to me. Each month for me brought a Goddess from a different pantheon and that inspired me to look further into that area and learn about others.
    Although I've finished the course, I've decided to continue working with the seasons as they happen as well as honouring the Sabbats. The Goddess for each month may stay the same for each month this year as for last year - she may change. That's what makes this wonderful course and book so awesome. It gives YOU the opportunity to work with the Goddess and discover, ultimately, the Goddess within you! ~ Vanessa, Amazon

  • Arc of the Goddess
    Rachel Patterson
    Tracey Roberts
    This book can be started at any time, as well as enabling the reader to engage with the cycle of the year. The great thing about it is that this book is not only for one year, you can repeat it for as many years as you want. ~ Heather Dewhurst, Amazon

  • Zen for Druids
    Joanna van der Hoeven
    If you, like me, are interested in spirituality, but are undecided exactly what you believe, this book is a great place to continue reading and learning. This book delves into the concepts of the Dharma, and explains in an easy to understand manner what these teachings mean and how they can relate to Druid tradition.

    I love the concepts of harmony with nature, and it is a big part of my fledgling belief system, so this was an ideal book for me. The author gives you a lot of positive reinforcements throughout her writing and helps you to see that you can turn negative forces in your life into positive things. The writing is beautiful and uplifting and made me want to learn more about these things and share them with others.

    I would certainly recommend this book to others looking to expand their knowledge on these topics. This book not only teaches you, but us also interesting to read. Great job by the author.

    This review is based on a complementary copy from the publisher, provided through Netgalley. All opinions are my own. ~ Ionia Froment, GoodReads

  • Arc of the Goddess
    Rachel Patterson
    Tracey Roberts
    An interesting take on the 'Wheel of the Year', this looks month-by-month at the various religious deities from all around the world, such as Hindu, Celtic, Egyptian, and as the title says, concentrates on goddesses. Each month has a list of feast days, meditation ritual, spell work, crystals, essential oils and more. I particularly like that the author is British, as am I, so the recipes and references are on my wavelength! ~ Forlang, Amazon

  • Kitchen Witch's World of Magical Food, A
    Rachel Patterson

  • Art of Ritual, The
    Rachel Patterson
    A great book, makes ritual understandable, as well as stimulating the reader to bring these practices into everyday life. ~ Heather Dewhurst, Amazon

  • Art of Ritual, The
    Rachel Patterson
    This is a fantastic starting point for anyone who wants to take the bold step of creating their own rituals. Everything you need to know about creating and practicing ritual is covered, from the basics of language to excellent examples of ready-created ones that need little adaptation. Included is pretty much every type of ritual you may come across, or ever need to know, such as hand-fastings and rites of passage. I was particularly impressed with the Celtic tree celebrations and Wheel of the Year rituals and Patterson's practical ideasfor crafting and cooking. ~ Vate Pathfollower, Amazon
