This book is different – in a good way. It’s a collection of essays the author wrote over the course of a decade, each one focused on a practical method for observing the turning of the seasons as a Pagan in a society in which that spirituality is the minority. There is a certain ritualy-ness to some of them (don’t we all like a little ritual in our lives?) but most of them focus more on deepening earth-oriented spirituality through daily life, a sort of Pagan mindfulness, if you will.

This is a fascinating look at the 10 year span of a Pagan Witch's life in Main, USA. Originally a column about her life as a Pagan, where N. Starcat Shields wrote about her life as a solitary witch, these have now been collated as a series of essays on Pagan Living.

Starcraft gathers her thoughts into the Sabbats of the Wheel of the Year and so we see her life and learning shift and change as she shares her thoughts, feelings and practice with us beginning with Samahin and moving as the wheel,tu

A beautiful book bringing together a collection of essays that takes you through Starcat’s personal journey living the life of a pagan.

A huge amount of insight and information separated into the Sabbats covering all sorts of subjects that any pagan might deal with on a day to day basis.

Thoroughly enjoyable, thought provoking and informative read for anyone new to paganism and also for those more experienced.

This book basically covers a pagan's year, being a collection of essays based loosely around the wheel of the year. However, it is much more than that, the author brings out the beautiful and the profound from simple day to day living. It is also a great guidebook for people actually wanting to live in a pagan way, it shows you how a practising pagan does it.

A good way to understand what being a real witch is like. This covers ten years in the author's life as she approaches life's challenges through her pagan perspective. A review is on my blog. http://hearthmoonblog.com/normalizing...
