Elves, Witches, and Gods is a gripping journey that blends scholarship, with stories of the Gods and those that seek them with ritual practice to deepen your connection to the Gods and looking within yourself. Brilliantly written, I can' t wait to see what Catherine Heath brings us next. --Amy Blackthorn, author of Blackthorn' s Botanical Magic and Sacred Smoke The Elder Heathen lived in an Animist world of spirits, ancestors, elves, magic, rich lore, and living Gods and Goddesses. Cat Heath teaches a real system of magic steeped in that elder world with all the real experimentation required to bring it to life today. She gives you a no-nonsense, practical step-by-step method to understand the lore, connect to these powers, and begin your magical journey in a way so few have explored in rich detail. Here you find the guidance and wisdom to become a Helrune. --Lonnie Scott, coauthor of Elhaz Ablaze: Compendium of Chaos Heathenry and host of Weird Web RadioThis is a lace up your boots, grab your sword and shield, and get down to business book on advanced Heathen magic. Cat has gone well past the introductory volumes to give the practicing Heathen a second level of magic. Her first part is a comprehensive overview of advanced basics that most never get to learn. By the time you reach her second part, practice, you are ready for lessons in fiber, herbs, oils, rituals, and all the other day-to-day practices that you perform during the year. If you weren' t grounded in Heathenism before you will be now. --Gypsey Teague, author of A Witch' s Guide to Wands and Steampunk MagicIn Elves, Witches, and Gods, Heath surpasses the sum of all components of her research, magical work, and community efforts. Here in one book, Heath shares her knowledge she has attained of the deities and wights. Heath' s descriptions are unique in that they include not only what to do when working with various beings or deities; they also provide cautions and warnings about what not to do. This book is a tremendous source of inspiration, insight, and information for Heathens of all tradition and experience levels. --Robert Schreiwer, author of First Book of Urglaawe Myths
