Slavic Witchcraft

by Natasha Helvin Author

Discover the ancient magickal traditions of old Russia. Natasha Helvin invites the reader into the folklore and traditions she inherited from her forebears as well as over 300 spells, rituals, and incantations. Peeling away the thin veneer of Christianity over these traditions, she paints a picture of Slavic pagan deities acquiring new life as Eastern Orthodox saints, and shows how their power, and the power of these spells, ultimately comes from nature. Forests, graveyards, and churches are all sites of power, amulets, talismans and icons are of the greatest importance, and magical language is key.
