Publisher's Summary

A fresh look at the wheel of the year, drawing on the power of intuition to create rituals and celebrations in harmony with your own traditions, your locale, and the climate of where you live.

When we think of the wheel of the year, the Wiccan wheel with its celebrations of the Yule, Beltane, Mabon, and Samhain come to mind. But what about a wheel of the year for the rest of us pagans and witches? As a witch living in sunny South Florida, longtime hereditary witch Temperance Alden has often felt at odds gearing up to celebrate Yule, for example, when it is 76 degrees and sunny outside.

Year of the Witch will help listeners create their own intuitive practices in harmony with the climate, culture, and local spirits where they live. It's of interest to witches coming off the Wiccan path and looking for a more personal approach to celebrating the rhythms of nature. Year of the Witch covers all aspects of this new, seasonal practice: the origins of the neo-pagan wheel of the year and why it is still so relevant today; culture, historical facts, and traditions associated with the major ceremonies; basic principles of land-based magick; how to intuitively connect to the nature below your feet and the local gods; and being a custodian to the land and its impact on our spiritual practice.

Ugh... the narrator ruins it

This is a very good book. This is NOT a very good narrator. I was hoping for a pleasant review of the material, while doing other things, but I don’t know that I can tolerate this audio, all the way through. The bizarro inflections& almost arrogant-sounding cadence are approximately as pleasant as would be a cheese grater on my butt. Back to the actual book, for me!

it's okay

the narrator is the worst part about this book. my other criticism is that while this is a good book with a straightforward approach to the craft it takes a long time to get to the main idea of the book which is building a wheel of the year that resonates with you and your practice. by the time you get there the book is 5/6 over and it's not nearly substantive enough to carry the book as it's core idea. a better take would be that this book focuses on building a meaningful personal practice overall.

Poor choice of narrator

I can’t even finish listening to this, but it isn’t the authors fault. They have chosen a reader who sounds like she’s reading the news. In the 70s. This is a book about witchcraft, living in seasons, spirituality and they chose someone who sounds like a schoolmarm reading to her unruly students. Who made this choice? I’m sure this narrator would be fine for many other books, but not this. The book is fine. But, wow, I will always preview narration from now on.

Glad I Bought Year of the Witch

Well written and organized. Not stuffy or alienating. Great audio voice. Recommend for anyone curious about the Wheel of the year.

Very informative for novice or very experienced.

This book went into detail on many aspects of practicing pagan beliefs in a manner that is not overbearing. She presents options for molding the rituals and celebrations to what fits for the practitioner.
