Rooted in the Body, Seeking the Soul:

Magic Practitioners Living with Disabilities, Addiction, and Illness

Edited by Tara “Masery” Miller
Megalithica Books/Immanion Press


This anthology explores magical, occult, and esoteric topics from the viewpoints of practitioners who are disabled, part of the deaf and Blind communities, or have an illness or addiction. The voices collected here come from diverse social, magical, and national backgrounds.

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 turned to a magical practice as a way to find healing, and the anthology includes some of their rituals and stories. 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 also interviews with professional counselors about assisting Pagans and magic practitioners that will be useful to anyone in the medical profession.
