In my last potted history post, I was half way through my ‘potted history of witchcraft‘ series. I have now completed it, and added a video on key concepts in Paganism.
Coming soon: a potted history of Paganism, and a video on recovering from fundamentalism. Subscribe to my YouTube channel so as not to miss any of my upcoming videos.
The other day I had a long rambling conversation with some people over Zoom where I ended up giving them a highly condensed version of a potted history of witchcraft.
This made me realize that I could make a short accessible series of videos on the subject. So I am doing exactly that, on my YouTube channel, The Witch’s Mirror.
I am delighted to announce that The Centre For Pagan Studies and the Doreen Valiente Foundation are publishing the revised and expanded edition of The Night Journey: Witchcraft as Transformation by me, Yvonne Aburrow.

The Night Journey is a follow-up to my previous book, Dark Mirror: The Inner Work of Witchcraft.
This is a new, revised and expanded edition of Dark Mirror, with new sections and new insights.
Inner work is a name commonly given to the inner processes that happen in ritual. It can also mean the transformation of the psyche that comes about through engaging in religious ritual. However, the best kind of inner work also has an effect outside the individual and outside the circle. When rituals are focused only on self-development, they tend to be a bit too introspective. Ritual is about creating and maintaining relationships and connections – between body, mind, and spirit; with the Earth, Nature, the land, the spirit world, the community, and friends. It is about making meaning, weaving a web of symbolism, story, mythology, meaning, community, and love. Creating a community that welcomes and celebrates diversity. Creating strong and authentic identity to resist the pressures of consumerism and commercialism and capitalism. Weaving relationship with other beings: humans, animals, birds, spirits, deities.Available for preorder now from the Doreen Valiente Foundation shop
