What I particularly loved about The Door To Witchcraft is how modern it was for a 101 book – it’s super inclusive and welcoming, without any gatekeeping or any of the problematic stances of previous paradigms. Read more

Southern Cunning, on one hand, has the type of folk magic you’d expect from a book of this nature. On the other hand, Oberon has taken these practices and mixed them with Traditional Witchcraft, local urban legends passed down, and the folkloric ideas of the witch from both Europe and the Southern regions of the United States. Read more

The ‘woo-woo’ is the approach of the witch. It’s said that witches don’t directly try to alter a situation head-on, but rather focus on addressing the energy around a problem until the problem fixes itself.

As such, we are still bound to the laws of nature, biology, and ‘the real world’. Sometimes we can bypass this and bend those laws, sometimes we cannot.

We cannot forget that we are multidimensional beings with several energetic bodies, the first of which is the physical body. Read more
