Wild Witchcraft Review

A review of Wild Witchcraft, my debut book on witchcraft. You can find it on Amazon.

Eco-Revolt

Emma Kathryn’s Wild Witchcraft is the first book of its kind I have read since I was 16 years old and exploring wicca and neo-druidry.

From her politics to her spirituality, Emma doesn’t claim to be the barer of hidden wisdoms or great revelations. What you find in this short book of shadows is the ideas and practices of someone dedicated to the exploration of radical politics and paganism.

Emma’s beautiful and personalised work on the practice of wild-witchcraft is one that would appeal to anyone interested in pagan anti-capitalism. From recipes to histories, its honest simplicity is beautiful to read.

There are aspects of the philosophies and ideas expressed in this book that I have personal disagreements with, in the way that no two people will ever agree entirely on everything. But Wild Witchcraft is definitely now a work I will hold on to and recommend as a beautiful…

The Journey Begins

‘Look deep into nature and then you will understand everything better’

And Heaven in a Wild Flower

Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand

And Eternity in an hour’

Hello and welcome, you wild witch you!

Some of you might already be familiar with some of my work, I write for Witch Way   Magazine, The House of Twigs, Gods & Radicals, and most recently Spiral Nature, but if you’re not then let me introduce myself.

My name’s Emma, and I live in the middle of England with my family. I’ve always been interested in witchcraft and the occult, even from being a kid, but I’ve been practising seriously for over ten years now, and like many my practises have changed over the years.

My witchcraft is a blending of Traditional British witchcraft, Obeah and Vodou , a mixture that fully represents my heritage (I am mixed race, my mum is English and my dad Jamaican). My witchcraft is also inextricably linked to nature, and connecting with the land where I live , and building this relationship and working with nature forms a large part of my own witchcraft practises.

I truly believe that connecting with other practitioners, that the sharing of knowledge and ideas with respect, and honest and open discourse  can only be a good thing, and this is what I hope these writings will achieve. And I also hope that  sharing some of the things that have been helpful to me may also be of use to you do as you forge your own crooked path.

Witches are wild things and so we shall remain.
