Review: Craft of the Hedge Witch by Geraldine Smythe

I was extremely honoured to be asked to write the foreward for Geraldine Smythe's Craft of the Hedge Witch book which is published by Crossed Crow Books.

The official blurb:

The Hedge Witch’s magic is based on seamlessly shifting themselves into the twilight plane, where miracles are commonplace and their magic flows freely. As a newer amalgam emerging from and within the traditional paths, Hedge Craft draws from the most pragmatic aspects of witchcraft and shamanism, giving the witch a deeper understanding of their power and practical methods to access their potential. The beginner Witch and seasoned practitioner will benefit from the ideas, theories, and magical workings presented herein.

Within this book, the reader will be introduced to methods of obtaining one’s key, which is their own personal word or phrase used to induce the shift away from the world of agreement, the mortal world, into the world of otherness. Within this altered state of being, magic may be realized and experienced with greater potency and the spirits who inhabit this world may be found to manifest with greater ease.

There is a limited edition special edition hard cover version available for pre-order

I loved this book! I wish it had been available when I was learning to hedge ride. The technique and experience with hedge riding is so very different from anything else that it really does help to have a guide. Geraldine Smythe’s new book Craft of the Hedge Witch provides just that.

She not only shares her own personal journey, thoughts and insights about being a Hedge Witch but also gives you practical solid advice and guidance.

This book opens up the world of Hedge Witchery and Hedge Riding in all its glory; hard working and dedicated glory, but glory non the less.

The book is beautifully written and takes the reader on a journey through Geraldine’s own personal practices which I found incredibly useful.
