Elemental Witchcraft shares a wholly unique esoteric approach to developing partnerships with elemental allies and deities and ultimately merging with the Divine Mind. Author Heron Michelle provides dozens of rituals, meditations, spells, and journal reflections as you explore the magick of the four classical elements—earth, air, fire, and water—as well as the principles of Hermeticism. On this journey, you will discover how the chakras and the magickal pentacle correspond to the five bodies: mental, emotional, will, physical, and spiritual. You will also explore how the astrological cycles and the wheel of the year relate to the elements and the witch's tools as well as to the paths of power, truth, sovereignty, and completion. Opening the elemental gateways and developing relationship with the goddesses and gods can be profoundly transformative work—this book guides you through this subtle path as you learn to balance the magickal elements and construct your own astral temples at the crossroads of the Self.
"Elemental Witchcraft goes way beyond the basics of 'how to' books on Witchcraft. It is an erudite book that provides for experienced practitioners new ideas and insights to deepen their practice and teaching and which for newcomers offers a vision of how contemporary witchcraft can provide a path to deep spiritual transformation."—Dr. Vivianne Crowley, author of Wicca: The Old Religion for the New Millennium
"Elemental Witchcraft is an incredible work dedicated to training new witches, but stands among those books who can deepen a spiritual practice for any practitioner regardless of their length of study. This examination of the full path of a witch is rooted in the rich history of our forebears, while being present in our current world. It presents the why associated with magical practices, and that is foundational for learning. Seeing the teachings as gender neutral is vital, and avoids leaving anyone out. The information also expresses the need for modern tools. This year-long study can be repeated for years to come, creating a deeper connection with the God/dess and ourselves."—Amy Blackthorn, author of Blackthorn's Botanical Magic and owner of Blackthorn's Botanicals
"Elemental Witchcraft is a magnificent work, an analysis of the Old Religion following the path of the Elements. Unlike other witchcraft books I've seen, the author doesn't homogenize or whitewash the information, nor does she talk down to the reader. She speaks to the reader as an equal and a friend. There's a wealth of information here, presented with the author's wit, charm, and attention to detail...This is a book you'll be going back to again and again."—Miles Batty, author of Teaching WitchCraft
"Heron Michelle pulls back the veil and shows us the soul of a witch...There is strength and kindness in her words as she conveys a summary of her journey through magick and her interlocking insights to present a whole and holistic view of a path of witchcraft...Elemental Witchcraftis perhaps the best effort I've ever seen to condense the fullness of a vibrant Tradition into one volume. If you do the work the book asks you to do, you will find a new way into the heart of witchcraft.—Ivo Dominguez, Jr., author of The Four Elements of the Wise
"Heron Michelle writes with sass and style and shares a powerful vision of Witchcraft that's firmly rooted in the past, yet very much a part of the progressive present. There's something for every Witch in this book, no matter their level of experience.—Jason Mankey, author of The Horned God of the Witches
"Heron Michelle shares her personal practice in an inclusive volume that is part reference text, part study guide, and part road map. Practitioners new and old will find the expansive text rich in well-researched information. As a beautiful bridge between witchcraft's history, and present-day application, Elemental Witchcraft could very well become the twenty-first century's version of Buckland's 'Big Blue.'
A must-have!—Raina Starr, host and producer of Desperate House Witches Podcast
