Clea Danaan breaks new ground with Sacred Land—a fresh approach to sacred gardening that goes beyond your own backyard.

In this positive and practical handbook, Danaan shows how organic gardening can germinate environmental awareness and political change while feeding your spirit. You'll learn how to plan and plant your garden, create compost, save seeds, conserve and transmute water, connect with garden goddesses, and incorporate planetary energy in your garden.

Sacred Land explores the benefits of native plants, organic food and agriculture, buying locally, and eating seasonally. It suggests simple yet effective ways of spreading the message of ecology and sustainability to your community. You'll discover how to get along with ants, bats, bees, butterflies, fairies, frogs, gnomes, worms, and other creatures who share our gardens. This one-of-a-kind gardening guidebook also includes inspiring stories of women activists, farmers, artists, and healers who are making a difference in the world.

Wouldn't it be lovely to have a place to go each day, where we could slow down, reach out to the Divine, and let the feeling of Spirit fill you? This place does not need to be a physical place; rather, we can create our own by deepening our spiritual practice with daily activities of meditation and inspiration. Clea Danaan, author of Living Earth Devotional, explains why a daily devotional is so powerful in creating a deeper, more spiritually-fulfilled life.

Green living can do more than protect the planet and stave off eco-guilt. The actions we take and the choices we make to minimize damage to the environment can give the witch new power, improve magical ability and offer creative formats for spellwork. If we want to work well with the natural elements and energies we use in magic, we must have a good relationship with those forces, a mutual...

In this meditation you will again attune with a plant, with attention toward that plant’s unique intelligence. Choose a plant in your garden to chat with, perhaps your favorite plant or a crop that is doing especially well right now. You might even choose a particularly abundant weed, which also contributes its energy to the signature of your garden. Any plant growing right now in your yard or...

As omnivores living busy lives, we often grapple with where to get our food. Fresh versus fast? Local versus cheap? Organic versus free range? Clea Danaan, author of Voices of the Earth and Sacred Land suggests that we return to gardening ourselves, not simply for the production of our food, but because gardening heals us and returns us to the miracle of life, reminding us that we are in a relationship with the Earth, with whom we co-create life.

Yes, listen. Observe yourself and observe others around you. Do you ever really listen? Close your eyes right now, and listen. Ignore any outside background noises. Listen, and what you will mostly hear is your own internal prattle. It is constant. You talk to yourself constantly and that prevents any other voices from reaching you. Now, observe yourself in conversation. If you are honest, it...

If you’ve read some of my past columns, you’ll already know that I’m a huge tree hugger—and also that I believe all witches must be, almost by definition. We must be environmentalists and defenders of the earth and pioneers of sustainability. But don’t take it from me. In Wiccan Beliefs and Practices, Gary Cantrell writes:“Wicca is a religion based on harmony with nature and all aspects of the...

The soil is a vast kingdom beneath our feet, home to giant and minute earthworms, billions of bacteria and micro-organisms, spiders and ants, and wise, ancient stones. Rich black, sandy red, or pale and gritty, it is in the soil that life on land begins. But not all soil is the same—far from it. The first step to getting to know a garden is to meet and appreciate the soil. The health of a...

Samhain is traditionally the best time of the year for divination. Don’t we all wish we were brilliant psychics or spot-on astrologers right now, so we could predict the outcome of the presidential elections in November? While witches will be witches, and we will certainly celebrate, I have the feeling that the elections are going to overshadow Halloween this year. We write these articles for New...

Water has been on my mind lately, and I thought it might be a good topic for this month's column. After all, spring cleaning, blessing sacred space, ritual purification, garden planning, and a host of other spring activities all involve water. It's personally one of my favorite elements, being a Crab myself; plus, we're we're currently traveling through the watery sign of Pisces (February...

How can we create a sustainable world? Are we doomed to extinction, or is there hope? Clea Danaan, author of Sacred Land, believes we can craft a new world, one garden at a time.

Are you getting Witchy Update for the first time? If so, you may have signed up at PantheaCon, and we thank you for your interest. If you've never heard of PantheaCon, it's a great Pagan festival held indoors in San Jose, California - yes, in February it can get a little chilly even in San Jose! But I love it because it doesn't require me to sleep in a tent - I've always been a city girl at...

Grave minding and grave decorating traditions run hand in hand with the season of Samhain, and perhaps nowhere is this as apparent as in Central and South America during Dias de los Muertos. However, elements of this practice are easily incorporated into modern Pagan traditions and offer a subtle yet powerful method of honoring the dead. It is... read this article
