Baba Yaga's Book of Witchcraft

Slavic Magic from the Witch of the Woods

Baba Yaga's Book of Witchcraft is an exciting book of ancient Slavic magical practices. In this book, you'll sit at Baba Yaga's side and listen to her stories about the birth of the sun, the land of the blessed ones, and the spirits that live right beside us. More importantly, you'll learn the secrets of her magic—crafts, talismans, inscriptions, incantations, and rituals that will allow you to discover your own Baba Yaga within.

Each chapter develops the fairytale of Vasylyna—the girl who is sent to the frightful witch—and Baba Yaga herself narrates explanations of folk lore represented in the tale. Author Madame Pamita completes each chapter by sharing how to put the elder-witch's wisdom into practice, with instructions for Ukrainian folk embroidery, weaving wreaths from herbs, using magical poppets, and working with the spirits of the forest, the hearth, and the sauna. With more than fifty illustrations and a bounty of tips and information, this book teaches you to embrace the beauty and power of these traditional practices as you learn to reclaim your personal magic.
