The Green Hedge Witch
Published by Robert Hale
Tells of a hedge witchcraft in which we may work in hedgerows or on other boundaries, treating them as symbolic borders between the human everyday world and the domains of elves, nature spirits and other otherworldly presences. In this way we achieve communion with those from more subtle dimensions and can join our magic with theirs, to the benefit of all, creating new harmony.
There is actually nothing new in these ideas. They are based on the work of the ancient Northern European Hagazissa, the 'Hedge-sitter', one who worked on the boundary between the human community and that of spirits to promote a good balance between wild spirit lands (such as a forest). Bad human areas such as the farmland, so that each could be sound and healthy. And it does not take a very bright person to work out the implications for us now at this point in history.
Rae Beth, author of the bestselling "Hedge Witch", brings us a whole new world of witchcraft and magic in her new book, "The Green Hedge Witch". The author blends the ancient tradition of wildwood mysticism with a subject that is supremely relevant for our modern day lives - the environment. Concerns about our world and environment have never been stronger, and through a mixture of spirit travelling, spells, wands, broomsticks and familiars, the author shows us how we can not only heal the human relationship with the rest of nature, but also to help bring evolution to the human concepts of nature. A book for both budding spell-casters and experienced workers as well, "The Green Hedge Witch" teaches how we can develop a relationship with those spirit presences who dwell in or can be psychically contacted through nature.
