Baba Yaga's Book of Witchcraft
Baba Yaga's Book of Witchcraft: Slavic Magic from the Witch of the Woods | Madame Pamita
6 posts | 3 read | 4 to read
Baba Yaga's Book of Witchcraft is an exciting book of ancient Slavic magical practices. In this book, you'll sit at Baba Yaga's side and listen to her stories about the birth of the sun, the land of the blessed ones, and the spirits that live right beside us. More importantly, you'll learn the secrets of her magic--crafts, talismans, inscriptions, incantations, and rituals that will allow you to discover your own Baba Yaga within. Each chapter develops the fairytale of Vasylyna--the girl who is sent to the frightful witch--and Baba Yaga herself narrates explanations of folk lore represented in the tale. Author Madame Pamita completes each chapter by sharing how to put the elder-witch's wisdom into practice, with instructions for Ukrainian folk embroidery, weaving wreaths from herbs, using magical poppets, and working with the spirits of the forest, the hearth, and the sauna. With more than fifty illustrations and a bounty of tips and information, this book teaches you to embrace the beauty and power of these traditional practices as you learn to reclaim your personal magic.

If you look at a task with disdain, discouragement, or resistance, that doesn't say anything about the task, but it speaks volumes about your desire and dedication.

You have to dance with nature. Like a khorovod, a circle dance, you cannot go your own way. You follow the one to your left and lead the one to your right.

Not sure what to "rate" this. I gave it ? because there's not anything particularly bad about it. If anything, it's very beautifully printed but it's very sparse. The book is only a few pages long and does not give me what it promised me, fear!! Or more than one bit of witchcraft. Instead, it's a very basic talisman stitching book, giving us information on what the patterns mean. So if that sounds interesting, I'd say check this out #nonfiction

coffees Update: apparently the Netgalley arc is not the full version so maybe there's more interesting stuff in the final version 7mo
