new to witchcraft & seeking guidance~

Postby desanimeaux » Sun Jun 05, 2016 10:26 pm

Hello~
I have been looking into and studying witchcraft for about 4 months. I have found myself drawn to more nature-based magic and do not really feel connected with multiple gods/goddesses- rather, I believe there are both masculine and feminine energies within Nature as a whole. I am comfortable exploring magic and natural energies as a solitary, however I feel that I would ultimately benefit having direction in a group setting ~ I'm just unsure of the specifics of what I should be seeking.
Does anyone have any suggestions on books/websites that are Nature-based?
What path would my beliefs apply to ?
In general, what are some starting tips?
Thank you all!
Cheers~

Your description fits the broad realm of Paganism in general. Just the term nature-based is too vague. It's all Nature based if we work outdoors.

The first suggestion that comes to mind is Ann Moura's Green Witchcraft series. She also has a Wiccan website.

Nigel Pearson's Treading the Mill is very how-to & traditional.

Hedge witch is another search topic.

You can break research down to basics that are common to most paths:
- herbalism and wild crafting
- meditation and mysticism
- using magic and ritual
- shamanic practices
