AWAKEN TO THE OLD WAYS
The legacy of Italian Witchcraft, handed down for generations, is now yours. Author Raven Grimassi reclaims the Pagan spirituality of southern Europe and traces its roots from the pre-Christian era to the fourteenth-century Holy Strega and the modern Legend of Aradia. Italian Witchcraft imparts knowledge once known only to secret initiates and gives you a solid introduction to Strega traditions. You will learn how to:
-- cast and break spells
-- create a Spirit Flame
-- invoke the power of a Watcher
-- cast shadows
-- make Stregherian magickal tools
-- perform beautiful Aridian marriage, birth, and death rites
-- make offerings to Diana and the Full Moon
-- cleanse and repair the aura

If you're an aspiring Witch or Magician, Italian Witchcraft offers you a complete magickal and folkloric tradition. If you're an experienced practitioner, you can use the not-widely-known magick in Italian Wichcraft to enhance your rituals. The Ways of the Strega had a profound influence upon the works of Aleister Crowley and Gerald Gardner -- they will influence you, too.
Come, be part of an ancient tradition.
