"This excellent book will deepen and strengthen your relationship with the land you live on, the element of earth, and with planet Earth. Taking a deep dive into mythology, history, folklore, and symbolism of humanity's relationship with earth, the book invites you to explore your own relationship with this element."—Yvonne Aburrow, author of All Acts of Love and Pleasure: inclusive Wicca; Dark Mirror: The Inner Work of Witchcraft; and The Night Journey: Witchcraft as Transformation
"Clearly written not just from a place of dedicated scholarship but from a wealth of personal experience, Earth Magic is a perfect gem of a book, encyclopedic in scope and inspired in approach...Covering the tangible magic of stone, plant, and tree along with the evocative magic of deity, mythological creatures, and sacred sites, Earth Magic provides an extensive range of tools, techniques, practices, and ideas that has potent potential to transform personal practice. This is a fabulous, hands-on, roll up your sleeves, get mucky, get muddy, celebration of Earth and Dodie truly leaves no stone unturned...With this book in one's hands, one cannot help but deepen, expand, and enliven one's personal pagan practice. Dodie refers to one section in her book as a 'love letter.' In truth, the entire book itself feels like a love letter: a beautiful invitation to enter into a love affair with the Earth."—Tiffany Lazic, author of The Great Work
