Great Reads

I'm really going to want to eventually get a copy of this book for myself. Traditional Witchcraft: A Cornish Book of Ways instantly became one of my favourite books on witchcraft with the first reading, and with the second it only moved higher up the list. I experimented with hallowing a compass using the Hearthside Rite and the Compass Rite as detailed in the book and I love the way it feels. I've tweaked the rites slightly by substituting some of my own chants in a few places, but other than that I've kept the general format the same for now. I definitely feel that my technique has benefited from playing around with this material.

Speaking of books, Nephilim Press' Ritual Offerings anthology is out and I happily snagged a copy. This was one I was keeping an eye out for while and I'm so glad to see it become available.

    1. Hehe, for sure! It's incredible how much information (recipes, spells, folklore) is packed into those 200-something pages.
