Where "A Witch Alone" was a gentle push in the direction of a new freedom in earth-based belief, and "Natural Witchcraft" was a hearty shove to accept responsibility for and development of a personal practice, "Wild Witchcraft" in my opinion, was an inappropriate scolding and a slap-down of anyone who doesn't approach his or her work in the same way as Ms. Green. The prologue of the book addresses why she feels disinclined to write more "advanced" instructions (or even concepts) around witch-practice. Those reasons are of course valid from her point of view and though I disagree with some of them, she is entitled to withhold her knowledge for her own reasons. My question then, is why publish another volume of basic information that she has covered more fully and more compassionately in her many other books? If "advanced" working in witchcraft is so dangerous (in her opinion) then I suppose she feels justified in protecting us from our own potentials...
This book has to be the best one I've read since "A Witch Alone." I love the way she places emphasis upon the natural world and the simplicity of life should be. Her techniques are well formed as well. The only disagreements I have with her is her insistance upon finding a teacher or someone to help you in your practice. Witches of old usually did not have a teacher unless it was their families. I think that being solitary and finding things out for yourself is the most important thing in a Witch's life. Experimenting by yourself is also part of the developmental stages. Making mistakes is very important. And... another thing, this author seems to have an obsession with Crowley, which is fine. He had beautiful poetry and some very valid points, but she quotes him almost every chapter. This got on my nerves a bit. Other than that, the book is perfect.
Marion Green, author of `A WITCH ALONE' has written another wonderful book for solitaries. Green practices "WILD WITCHCRAFT' in the UK and she suggests that all the coven inductions in the world will not make you a witch if you don't understand the basis of magic, which is nothing less than the wild world. Over the years Green has developed a good deal of expertise in the areas of folklore and magic, both grounded in the natural world. I like her works because rather than merely relate "fairy tales" and magical gimmickry, she interweaves folk tales and folk practices that reflect the practical ways our ancestors related with the ground of their being, the Earth. Like her Witch Alone, this book is crammed with useful information.
Green's narrative shows us that understanding the world around you begins with appreciating the balance of the solar and lunar cycles that govern the natural world (if those phenomena aren't magical what is??). And, what have humans done to affect...
