Everyday Witchcraft: Making Time for Spirit in a Too-Busy World

Between working a full-time job and scrambling to meet deadlines as a freelance writer, I barely have enough time to keep food on the table and the house (kinda) clean, much less have a rich spiritual practice. In Everyday Witchcraft: Making Time for Spirit in a Too-Busy World, Deborah Blake shares easy, quick ways to recharge your batteries and reconnect with nature. One idea that I loved was taking a “Hibernation Vacation,” where you unplug and spend time at home, even if it’s just for a weekend. Another suggestion I took to heart was connecting with an animal spirit by adopting a pet, feeding the critters around your yard or volunteering at an animal shelter. This book is written in a friendly, conversational tone—I felt like Blake was really talking to me without being too “out there.” You don’t have to have pagan leanings to enjoy a book like this, only a desire to slow down and reconnect with yourself.  –Amanda Rock
