My Review:  
This is such an enchanting book on Celtic magic. I found it both entertaining and educational. It was a great mix of traditional stories and practices that are great for any level of practitioner. It covers everything from working with the Fae, elemental magic, making a divination kit, and working with familiars and other animals. I highly recommend this book to anyone that has an interest in Celtic magic. As someone with Scottish roots that has always felt drawn to Celtic traditions, I found this to be a perfect addition to my collection.


"Like a weaving of the winds or the many-feathered cloak of a bard, Wild Magic is an inspired blending of folk practice, mythic wisdom, and solid scholarship that draws upon the rich cultural heritage of the British Isles, Ireland, and Gaul. Informed by ancient lore, and grounded in Celtic customs by the inclusion of traditional chants, prayers, and spells, Danu Forest presents clear tools and workings that guide the modern seeker along the path to personal relationship with the land, its spirits, and the Gods and guardians of place. This work is a love letter that gathers together authentic information about what the various Celtic peoples believed and practiced, as well as an invitation to put that understanding to respectful use in order to traverse the wild and hidden places both within us and without."―Jhenah Telyndru, author of Avalon Within and The Mythic Moons of Avalon

"Danu Forest invites us on an immersive journey into the Celtic Otherworld. She has deftly interwoven both the practical and the magical, leading the reader towards an authentic alignment with the wild magic of the land itself. Through spells, exercises, guided journeys and folklore from the Celtic traditions, Forest shows us how to reclaim our connection to our own wildness and live in accordance with the spirit of place, wherever we call home. Forest has written a beautiful compendium that is especially poignant in a time when many long for a return to a meaningful sense of relationship with the wild."―Danielle Blackwood, author of The Twelve Faces of the Goddess

"Wild Magic is an invaluable compendium of old country lore that we are desperate for today, and Danu's voice brings a deep knowledge born of impeccable research and dedicated practice infused with the enticement to dance on the wild side. ... To feel embraced by Earth, to dive deep into Water, to be uplifted by Air as well as engaging in soul-stirring practices like 'how to capture the wind' or 'how to read the web' and heart-warming lore like 'the kindling prayer' and 'the Woodcutter's Song.' A practical and magical elemental map to the immanent, Wild Magic is a powerful call to bring back the flow of nature to nurture our spirits and uplift our souls. Highly, highly recommended, especially to anyone working with the cycle of the seasons. Bring back the wild! Danu shows us how."―Tiffany Lazic, author of The Great Work: Self-Knowledge and Healing Through the Wheel of the Year

"Wild Magic is a rich and practical compendium for working magic within the natural world."―Philip Carr-Gomm, author of Druid Mysteries
