The Eco-Foods Guide:  
What’s Good for the Earth is Good for You!  
by Cynthia Barstow
New Society, Gabriola Island, 2002

 

A generation ago, grocery shopping was easy. You went to the meat counter at your local market and watched the butcher grind your beef. You picked up iceberg lettuce and Red Delicious apples in the produce department, a loaf of Wonder Bread, and a jar of spaghetti sauce completed your list. You didn’t buy milk and eggs; the milkman delivered those to your front door. Mango? Radicchio? What were those?

Self-Hypnosis: Easy Ways to Hypnotize Your Problems Away http://witchesandpagans.com/solitary-spirituality/reviews/319-self-hypnosis-easy-ways-to-hypnotize-your-problems-away-nw01.html http://witchesandpagans.com/solitary-spirituality/reviews/319-self-hypnosis-easy-ways-to-hypnotize-your-problems-away-nw01.html

Self-Hypnosis:  
Easy Ways to Hypnotize Your Problems Away  
by Dr. Bruce Goldberg
New Page Books

 

I was skeptical at best when I picked up this book. Self-hypnosis has always seemed to be too good to be true. Most of what I had previously read on the subject was a combination of pseudo-New Age meditation, hype, and recto-fumigation. However, Dr. Goldberg’s book presents hypnosis in a serious and scientific way.

Goddess Gift  
by Sharon Turnbull, Ph.D
Quiet Time Press, 2007

 

Maybe there’s a reason why for thousands of years individual people have been drawn to particular gods and goddesses. In Dr. Sharon Turnbull’s book Goddess Gift, she helps readers discover their own “personal goddess type,” the female deity who most resembles their own personality and who can help them better themselves.

Good Karma:  
How to Find It and Keep it  
by Joan Duncan Oliver
Duncan Baird, 2006

 

Good Karma: How to Find and Keep It is such a cute little book that it may mislead the reader into thinking it can’t possibly be serious. Such a judgment would be mistaken.

The Amulet Manual:  
A Guide to Understanding and Making Your Own Amulets  
by Kim Farnell
O Books, 2007

 

Most Pagans, once they have some experience, prefer to create their own magical objects. The Amulet Manual is a guidebook to making amulets, magical objects aimed at drawing a particular sort of energy, influence, or entity.

One Witch’s Way http://witchesandpagans.com/solitary-spirituality/reviews/206-one-witch-s-way-nw18.html http://witchesandpagans.com/solitary-spirituality/reviews/206-one-witch-s-way-nw18.html

One Witch’s Way
Bronwynn Forest Torgerson
Llewellyn Publications, 2008

“Not just another worn-out Sabbat book,” begins the press release for long-time Craft practitioner Bronwynn Forest Torgerson’s debut book, One Witch’s Way. A solitary Witch with decades of Craft experience, active in her local Interfaith and CUUPS chapters, Torgerson brings her considerable knowledge and intuition to bear in a unique and lively “magickal memoir.”

Unlike typical Sabbat-spell books, Torgerson doesn’t put forth any doctrine regarding the Wheel of the Year or its vast wealth of lore and magick. She doesn’t focus on the Eight Great Sabbats or go deeply into magickal theory. What she does is assign a magickal theme to all twelve months of the Year, and from there lay out a wealth of memoirs, stories, rituals, charms, and thought-provoking questions.
