This is volume offers specially commissioned photography, fine art and archive material examining the themes and practices of ancient and modern magic making. Practical Magic seeks to inform people of the ancient skills of hand and mind which are once more being examined and perfected all over the world. Arts of self-awareness, healing, foretelling the future and discovering the power of ancient gods and goddesses within, can all be mastered by working with traditional exercises and techniques. By recreating a place of inner peace, our own forgotten skills and unknown abilities can be brought to the surface, in order to bring enlightenment, power and joy. Throughout the book there is practical information on tools and materials; spells and incantations; clothing and ritual robes; the use of herbs, candles and incese; and ritual food and drink.
