Challenge your assumptions about witchcraft, Paganism, and spiritual seeking and learn how to craft your own magical path with this timely and entertaining exploration of what it means to practice witchcraft from the host of the Inciting A Riot podcast.
If you’ve ever wanted to burn your ex’s old stuff in a trash can while drinking wine with your friends and reading tarot cards under the light of the full moon, you already know that magic is an essential part of our human existence. But what is magic, anyway? And are witches real? Where do I start if I want to build a deeper, more personal magical practice? (I mean…can I just make sh*t up?)
Perfect for anyone who has wanted to get a little witchy but not known where to start, The Dabbler’s Guide to Witchcraft provides everything you need to discover more about modern witchcraft while forging your own magical path in a responsible and informed way. Fire Lyte takes us on a thoughtful, compulsively readable, and provocative journey, addressing topics such as:
-Pop culture and witchcraft
-The intersection of science and spirituality
-Gatekeeping and inclusivity in the magical community
-“Good” vs “bad” magic (spoiler alert: there’s no such thing!)
-Why a coffee pot or Dutch oven is just as effective as a cauldron
He also provides eleven spell canvasses, perfect for beginners and practicing witches alike to expand their spell-casting repertoire.
Whether you’re just starting on your spiritual journey or recent events have inspired you to reexamine your current magical path, this humorous, practical, and insightful book provides a roadmap for anyone curious about enriching their practice.
"I was sold on this book from the intro which is punchy and fun without ever talking down to its readers. The Dabbler's Guide goes on from there to be the perfect book for any witchling looking for responsible and safe ways to explore new ideas and techniques. It's smart, well-researched, and an absolute delight to read. I am so excited to watch it get into people's hands. The grimoire alone is SO different from other spell appendices I've seen (and the spells work!), and the book leads you there beautifully." —Cassandra Snow, Author of Queering Your Craft and Queering the Tarot
