A witch is a wise woman, a healer. Yet for so long the word 'witch' has had negative connotations. In this book, third generation hereditary witch Lisa Lister explains the history behind witchcraft, why identifying as a healer in past centuries led women to be burned at the stake, and why the witch is reawakening in women across the world today.

This book provides an overview of the different schools of witchcraft and the core principles and practices within them. Discover ancient wisdom made relevant for modern witches:

  • The wheel of the year, the sabbats, the cycles of the moon.
  • Tools to enhance your intuition, including oracle cards and dowsing, so that you can make decisions quickly and comfortably.
  • Understanding the ancient use of the word 'medicine'.
  • How to work with herbs, crystals and power animals so that you have support in your spiritual work.
  • Work with the elements to achieve deep connection with the world around you.

In addition, Lisa teaches personal, hands-on rituals and spells from her family lineage of gypsy witch magic to help you heal, manifest and rediscover your powers.

Male Witches In Early Modern Europe. This book critiques historians’ assumptions about witch-hunting as well as their explanations for this complex and perplexing phenomenon. It shows that large numbers of men were accused of witchcraft in their own right, in some regions, more men were accused than women. The authors insist on the centrality of gender, tradition, and ideas about witches in the construction of the witch as a dangerous figure. They challenge the marginalization of male witches by feminist and other historians.
