Wiccecræft: Shamanic Magic from The Dark Ages
‘WiccecrÃ¦ft” delves into the mysterious and predominantly hidden world of dark ages England to discover the shamanic roots of modern Witchcraft. Central to the journey is the reality of the Otherworld, a spiritual realm of elves and daemons which our ancestors used to bring power to their magic, healing and divination. Sinead explores this forgotten past from her research with actual Anglo-Saxon magical manuscripts such as the Lacnunga and Bald’s Leechbook to present a work full of information, rituals, meditations and exercises designed for Witches, non-Witches, Wiccans and interested explorers who desire to re-awaken an ancient shamanic magical consciousness within the modern world. Presented over six chapters with introduction, bibliography and an appendix detailing how to pronounce Old English for those who wish to try.
