His new book
Otherworld: Ecstatic Witchcraft for the Spirits of the Land is about establishing relationships with the spirits of the land. Many books talk about Faeries, but this book not only teaches about the Elves and Faery folk, but also how to have a working relationship with the spirits of plants, animals, and the land itself. Otherworld also teaches how to perform animal magick including shapeshifting for magick, healing, and establishing a deeper connection with animal spirits and discusses ecstatic trance techniques that will help practitioners work with the land spirits in a deep and profound way.

Chris Allaun presents a wonderful book that taps directly into a subject that is very close to my heart and my own magical practices. This is all about working directly with source magic from the land. He covers some interesting angles and shares his obvious experience and practical knowledge. A fascinating read.
