Before recorded time, women have performed spells using perfumes, hairbrushes, mirrors, lotions, masks, and face coloring. These spells not only sought love but conferred protection, purified the spirit, opened the psychic senses, and prepared the woman for sacred ritual.
Enchantments shows you how to reclaim the conviction that beauty already exists in each of us as daughters of the Goddess. Now you can witness this magical transformation in yourself as you make your own fertility soap, use a hair braid to attract a lover, or enact a glamour spell to draw the eyes of everyone in the room.
About the Author
Edain became a self-initiated Witch in 1981 and has been an active part of the Pagan community since her formal initiation into a large San Antonio coven in 1983. Edain has researched alternative spiritualities since her teens when she was first introduced to Kaballah or Jewish mysticism. Since that time, she has studied a variety of magickal paths including Celtic, Appalachian folk magick, and Curanderismo, a Mexican-American folk tradition. Today, Edain is part of the Wittan Irish Pagan tradition, where she is a priestess of Brighid and an elder.
An alumnus of the University of Texas with a BA in history, she is affiliated with several professional writer's organizations and occasionally presents workshops on magickal topics or works individually with students who wish to study Witchcraft.
This former woodwind player for the Lynchburg (VA) Symphony claims both the infamous feuding McCoy family of Kentucky and Sir Roger Williams, the seventeenth-century religious dissenter, as branches on her ethnically diverse family tree. In her "real life," Edain works as a licensed stockbroker.
Edain is the author of fifteen books, including Bewitchments; Enchantments; and her most recent release, Ostara: Customs, Spells & Rituals for the Rites of Spring.
