I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

Fascinating! The author takes an abundance of material that is no doubt difficult to put into words and uses it to write a crystal clear description of what it means to be a witch. I was intrigued from the very first pages of the book. Though it is challenging subject matter for those of us with no previous “knowledge” or experience, the book is a captivating read for seekers and non-seekers alike.
P.S. There is a poem on pp. 115-116 tha

So close to brilliant.

I want so badly to give this 5 stars, but the author goes from stating witch blood is a thing that happens but not necessary to constantly referring back to the witch blood. If you can get past that, great book. Clear, relatively concise, straight forward and Foxwoods communicates some rather complex ideas in the simplest manner I've seen.

This book gives some very interesting pointers but it really takes a lot of contemplation and re-reading to start to comprehend everything Orion writes. As he says so himself: there is a lifetime of work hidden in this book.

“Orion's Tips for Sane Witchcraft (Ponder and Apply to Living) Know your boundaries. Find time for stillness. Look within! Do not confuse spirituality with egotism. Don't abuse power or give it to those who would abuse you with it. Live your life as an expression of conscious creation and divine revelation. Seek counsel daily with your source, your center, and your ancestors. Don't get lazy, crazy, or otherwise in your own way. Remember grace! It brings wisdom and unlocks more vast knowledge. Be sincere in all that you do. Never compromise (especially your integrity) or be compromised. If you lose yourself, you have nothing. Choose what matters and feed it. (Starve the bane, feed the blessing.) Get the lesson and get on with life. Too often life is what happens when you are busy doing something else. Maintain an attitude of thanksgiving. For in doing so, you give gratitude to source and maintain inner fertile space to receive more. Thank the source and its good spirits at the beginning and ending of each day. If you wake up in the morning, your day has already started out good . . . build from that position. Don't wait for a reason to be happy when it is right in front of you. Claim the” 0 likes
