The elements, the guardians, the spirits and gods; these are all things beginner Witches are taught about and trained to work with. We learn about correspondence and how to associate symbols with their mysteries. But what are the real mysteries behind the symbols? What lives at the very heart and core of these teachings? In the Deep Heart of Witchcraft, we seek the teachings and ways that might lead us to look beyond the surface and into the depths of the Craft. In this book, we ll look at the tools and spirits of the sacred elements to connect us back to the power of nature. Through ritual, we turn and face traditions both new and old to enrich our practice and feed the soul. And through the wheel of the year, we connect with the ebb and flow of the cycles of time and space.

This book is for everyone who wants a better understanding of the fundamentals of witchcraft that create an authentic spiritual practice. It is interactive and prompts you to live in daily ritual no matter what you know or don't know, just do it! A beginner or a seasoned witch will find themselves exploring the paths of their own being through the practice of clear intent, practical application and responsible action. David Salisbury begins early on talking about prayer - what? Witches praying?! I love that, at last, witchcraft is revealed as the deep spiritual practice that it is.

David Salisbury is one of our true modern mentors in the field of Witchcraft and brings his delightful mind deep into the heart of the subject in this delicious book. He has a unique ability to turn a phrase in a way that is original and thought provoking. I kept having to put the book down and think a bit of what he'd written in particular chapters. I enthusiastically recommend this book to both novices and seasoned veterans.
Finally a book for the experienced practitioner. I couldn't wait to finish reading the first chapter so that I could put it down and get to work. The exercises he provides are perfect in that they don't require a lot of "extra" stuff that you might not have on hand. This is true from the heart witchcraft at its best.
