I can't believe I am just now getting around to reviewing Green Witchcraft by Ann Moura (Aoumiel)! It is the third book I delved into when first exploring my own witchy-ness and it runs neck and neck with Scott Cunningham's Earth Power in the race to be my favorite book. For a magickal person looking for an intuitive, earth based path this book is essential. Aoumiel shares three generations of witchy wisdom and lays out an easy to get started outline for ritual while sharing bits of witchy history along the way.
When I opened this book, I knew that I had no interest in organized Wicca. It just didn't suit me, but I had no idea where to go from there. This text is what gave me the confidence to define myself as a witch and to initiate ritual practices. I refer to it often and have used it in conjunction with another of the author's works as a magickal textbook of sorts. There is so much to learn from this book, that it is once again on my reading list for summer.
