A Few Suggestions

… from the very folks who attend WS.

Melissa:
“Shroom: The Cultural History of the Magic Mushroom” by Andy Letcher. The book gives a brief history of the study and use of mushrooms from early European times through to the modern era. Very cool!

Austin:
“Cunning-Folk and Familiar Spirits: Shamanistic Visionary Traditions in Early Modern British Witchcraft and Magic” by Wilby.
“The Triumph of the Moon: A History of Modern Pagan Witchcraft” by Hutton

Peter:
“Call of the Horned Piper” by Nigel Ashcroft Jackson

Andrea:
“Trance-Portation” by DIana L. Paxson
“Witchcraft Medicine” by Ratsch, Muller-Ebeling, and Storl
Podcasts: On the Black Chair, New World WItchery, Down at the Crossroads, Rune Soup, The Folklore Podcast, The Hermetic Hour, Lucky Mojo Hoodoo Rootwork Hour, Elemental Castings.

Melinda:
“Geosophia” by Jake Stratton- Kent. Just get this, I promise you won’t regret it.
“To Fly By Night” edited by Veronica Cummer.
“The Elements of Ritual” by Deborah Lipp. It is aimed at Wiccans, but works as a kind of “grammar” of basic ritual forms and helps you figure out when things make sense.
“Ecstatic Body Positions” by Felicitas Goodman and Belinda Gore. Visits to archaeological museums will never be the same again!
