The Wiccan Wellness Book
I've long been skeptical of most self-help books. So I wrote one that's a little different. I based it on what I, an ordinary mortal with loads of problems and not as much time or energy as I'd like, am capable of. It's realistic. It offers goals to aim for if you want to stretch a little, but mostly it just helps you cope with life the way it already is so you can get more out of it. Find some connection with your inner flame, the sacred within and around you. Find ways to treat your body like a temple that make sense and work with everyday modern life. Find that life has more depth and meaning than you thought it did.
In this revised and updated second edition of The Wiccan Wellness Book, I'm offering you a practical selection of holistic healthcare methods to try out. I'm also sharing some easy, hands-on methods for combining spiritual practice with natural healthcare for the benefit of body, mind, and spirit. I'll show you how to keep in tune with the many facets of your health through a Body/Mind/Spirit Journal, and I'll help you figure out how to add some movement into your day as a valuable component of spiritual practice without it becoming The Dreaded Exercise.
I was inspired to write this book after discovering that many of my clients in my herbalism and naturopathy practice (which I retired from a few years back) wanted a set of practical instructions for combining their Earth-oriented spirituality with natural healthcare techniques. The two naturally go hand-in-hand, if you think about it. So it only makes sense to combine them to empower your life that much more.
Though the title includes the word Wiccan, this book is designed for everyone who feels a sacred connection with the Earth and the environment and who wants to bring that connection and its meaning into the way they take care of their body.
