Magic has played an important part in our culture throughout history. This insightful book tracks the development of magic through the ages until we reach the present day with a revival of a magical consciousness in the West, and modern forms of goddess-centred female witchcraft. The book looks at the power of natural magic practiced by many New Age magicians and provides a thoughtful guide for anyone interested in working with magic. It describes how to perform spells, rituals and invocations, blessings and dedications. This unique book will inform and inspire anyone studying the ancient mystical arts.
