Phyllis Curott’s first book, Book of Shadows, was an inspirational, spiritual memoir that chronicled her journey from Ivy League-educated, New York City attorney to Wiccan High Priestess. By inviting readers of all faiths to share in her own personal transformation, Phyllis debunked many of the myths surrounding Wicca and revealed it for what it really is: a spiritual movement whose tenets of Goddess worship and reverence for Nature were a great deal more accessible and familiar than she’d ever expected. In Witch Crafting, Phyllis digs deep into the practices and principles of Witchcraft to provide a comprehensive guidebook that anyone "novices and seasoned practitioners alike" can use to incorporate the beauty and power of Wicca into their own daily lives.
Far from being just another mechanical spell book, 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. With enchanting stories from Curott’s own experiences, Witch Crafting will also teach you how to:
· Master the secret arts of effective spellcasting
· Create sacred space and personal rituals
· Perform divinations for spiritual insight and earthly success
· Tap into the power of altered states, such as dreaming, meditation, prayer, and trance
· Keep a magical journal and create your own Book of Shadows ·Keep a magical
Rich with detailed advice for making magic, working with Nature, and finding the Divine within, as well as thought-provoking evaluations of this remarkable spirituality, Witch Crafting is the special volume that you’ve been searching for. Whether you are a beginner or have been practicing Witchcraft for years, whether you worship in a coven or on your own, Witch Crafting is the ideal handbook for you, or anyone seeking to unlock the divine power that makes real magic happen and experience the ecstasy, energy, and gifts of the Universe more fully.

Published on the heels of her enthralling memoir, Book of Shadows,Phyllis Curott's second exploration of Wiccan magic, Witch Crafting, delves deeper into the spiritual beliefs and practices of the fastest-growing religion in America. Rather than provide a mechanical course on becoming a witch, Curott wanted to "create an inspiring primer on how to live an empowered, divinely guided, magical life," exploring both the hows and the whys of witchcraft. This substantial volume introduces new practitioners to the techniques and tools of witchcraft, and explains why certain rituals are undertaken. For the experienced practitioner, Witch Crafting encourages deeper spiritual exploration and offers extensive theological discussions about Wiccan practices, past, present, and future. Chapters titled "Divination," "Nature," "Sacred Space," "Witchcraft Without Rules," "Solitary Practice," and "Groups and Covens" are designed to help skilled and new practitioners alike study and perform contemporary acts of magic while examining and developing their own emotions and spiritual beliefs. This is no book of magic potions (although it does supply specific spells and rituals); it's a serious resource for those serious about the fascinating tradition of Wicca.
