This is a book that I've returned to periodically over the years and each time I'm struck by insight and perspective that continues to enhance and level-up my own magic and relationship with spirits.”

  • Foreword by Mat Auryn

“Brims with magic that is accessible to everyone; magic that works regardless of one’s level of experience or background.”—Mat Auryn, author of Psychic Witch

Pure Magic is one of those rare works of modern-day witchcraft that has already become a classic. First published twenty-years ago, the book has become an essential resource for beginners and experienced devotees of the magical arts. Written by one of today’s most trusted and beloved teachers and writers on magic and witchcraft, Pure Magic offers:

  • an introduction to the essentials of magic,
  • a complete glossary of psychic and magical terminology,
  • a primer on the four elements,
  • a survey of magical supplies (including minerals and botanicals),
  • and a compendium of spells for any situation.

Also included is guidance on how and where to practice magic; how to rightly use words of power; and how to cleanse, protect, and enhance your magical self.

This new Weiser Classics edition includes a foreword by Mat Auryn, author of Psychic Witch and a new preface by the author. This book was previously published as The Big Book of Practical Spells.
