Nature Reverence Isn’t Enough
Dismantling Toxic “Respect” to Forge Deep Relationships with the Land & its Spirits
Regardless of the trappings and labels we may latch onto and tie into our crafts, one thing lays at the heart of witchcraft that binds us all. This is our connection with the land and its spirits (conjointly called the Land). Our connection with the Land and the effort we put into our relationships with these spirits, the genius loci, touches all aspects of our practices. We see this in the tools we use—herbs, stones, a lovely shell from the river, a pinch of dirt from a place of power—as well as in the simple focus of our magick. While other systems seek to transcend the everyday or to even attain godhead, witchcraft seeks to improve our everyday lives and to help us live more honestly: to see the world more fully for what it truly is and to embrace the wonder and beauty of being physically incarnate.
