Suggested Reading

As for books..... Read what interests you and read a lot. That is one of the best ways to learn about any pagan path. Check out your local library. A lot of what I've read comes from there and I can't remember the names of all of them. Also check out used bookstores and garage sales. You never know what you'll find! What follows is a short selection of books that I recommend.

Animal Magick by D.J. Conway (has good animal lists)

Awakening Spirits by Tom Brown Jr.

Celtic Magick by D.J. Conway (a good beginner's book)

The Complete Art of Witchcraft by Sybil Leek (a good history and concept book)

Dancing Shadows by Aoumiel (a pagan's perspective of Western religious history)

The Eagle's Quest by Fred Alan Wolf (A physicist's personal study and "explanation" of shamanism. Great for those of us who are scientifically minded, but I wouldn't suggest it if you aren't a science buff.)

Earth Prayers From around the World: 365 Prayers, Poems and Invocations for Honoring the Earth edited by Elizabeth Roberts and Elias Amidon (a wonderful compilation, especially if you want to introduce Prayer to your children)

The Four Agreements by don Miguel Ruiz (a book on Toltec shamanism, strongly recommended)

Jude's Herbal Home Remedies by Jude Williams (If you are interested in herbal home remedies that work, this is a good book to get started with.)

North Star Road By Kenneth Johnson (a compare and contrast book or shamanism and other pagan practices, with some good historical information)

Of Water and the Spirit: Ritual, Magic, and Initiation in the Life of an African Shaman by Malidoma Patrice Some' (This is an autobiography and tells of his life growing up with the Dagara tribe and then being abducted by the English colonials and being trained by them to become a priest. It then goes on to describe how he managed to rejoin his culture and learn the ancient ways of his tribe. Not a how to book, but a very good read with some interesting information about a shamanic practice that isn't well known.)

Secrets of Shamanism by Jose and Lena Stevens (if you can find it, get it!)

Shamanic Wisdom by Dolfyn (a good book for beginners, but written a bit simply)

The Spiral Dance: A Rebirth of the Ancient Religion of the Great Goddess by Starhawk (A classic and a must read)

Spirit Song: The Introduction of No-Eyes by Mary Summer Rain (This entire series is a very good leson in the concepts of shamanism written so you can see through the student's eyes)

The Winter Solstice: The Sacred Traditions of Christmas by John Matthews (Finally a seasonal book that actually goes into the ancient celebrations. Not exactly a pagan book, but I recommend it highly for anyone who wants to learn more about the Winter Solstice.)

And...


I personally believe that anyone who follows a path even slightly based in witchcraft should read the Malleous Mallefecarum. It is the book about the witch trials and how they were conducted, written at the time by the people in charge of the trials. It is a true eye opener and not for the squeamish. You can find it in University libraries and possibly in large public ones.



Suggested Reading for Kids

If you know of any children's books that you think should be on this list please let me know.

All I See Is A Part Of Me by Chara M. Curtis.

'Circle Round: raising children in Goddess traditions' (an absolute must! Very Goddess oriented, but I'm not a major Goddess person and I still love it.)

Dear Children of the Earth: a letter from home by Schim Schimmel (a bit preachy, but cute)

The Dragon and the Unicorn by Lynne Cherry (a bit preachy, but cute)

Earth Prayers From around the World: 365 Prayers, Poems and Invocations for Honoring the Earth edited by Elizabeth Roberts and Elias Amidon (a wonderful compilation, especially if you want to introduce Prayer to your children)
