Rooted in the Body, Seeking the Soul: Magic Practitioners Living with Disabilites, Addiction, and Illness

The book is finally available for purchase from Megalithica books!

This anthology explores magical, occult, and esoteric topics from the view points of practitioners who are disabled, part of the Deaf and blind communities, or have an illness or addiction. Though the voices collected here come from diverse social, magical, and national backgrounds, they don’t represent every individual’s story. The only way to understand the personal history and feelings of any one is to share in open dialogue.

One purpose of this anthology is to help those struggling with a disability, injury, illness, or addiction find comfort in the fact that they are not alone. Some of the authors, like myself, turned to a magical practice as a way to find healing and the anthology included rituals and stories about healing. Covens, circles, temples or any other type of magical group can use it as a resource toward understanding members or potential members with disabilities. There are interviews with professional counselors, including Drake Spaeth, previously with Circle Sanctuary, about assisting Pagans and magic practitioners that are useful to anyone in the medical profession. Those interviewed also include Dee of PaganFM, author Janet Callahan, and Kimberly Kirner, PhD who conducted the Pagan Health Survey I and II.

    Is there an ebook version or any plans to have one?
    I can’t buy paper books, since it’s about people with disabilities an ebook would be perfect.
    By the way, commenting here is terrible using an iPad.
