The Witching Year

The Witching Year was written for readers like me: people who are eternally skeptical of any sort of religion, but who are willing to believe. Helmuth embraces my skepticism with open arms and she uses healthy doses of critical snark and self-reflective quietude to conjure her tale of dipping a toe into the witchcraft waters for a year. If you’re new to paganism, be not intimidated as our spiritual guide balances personal memoir with generalized research on Wicca and other practices that will leave you both informed and entertained. The Witching Year helped me bumble through my own exploration of cosmic questions. Recommended by Wulfe
