Encyclopedia of Natural Magic
The natural world is not a place apart from the world of magic-they are one and the same. When you know the magical reality behind the physical form of stars and stones, flowers, trees, and animals, you are well on your way to mastering natural magic. Working with the hidden energies in the natural world is both a source of power and spiritual connection to the living earth.
