The Wheel: A Witch's Path Back to the Ancient Self
A witch’s journey to discover how witchcraft can heal us, reconnect us with nature and keep us magical in an age of disbelief.
As featured in The Guardian.
‘The crackling starts in my feet, where I am closest to the Earth. I feel it buzzing in the capillaries in my soles like static. It’s a shifting pulse of air and light. It is neither positive nor negative, but it’s an insistent, thrumming force that can be used to flush away the bad or fuse together to create the new.’
One recent winter, Jennifer Lane reached breaking point in her fast-paced working life. In the year that followed her stress-related illness, she set out to rediscover the solace and purpose witchcraft had given her as a teenager.
The Wheel is an immersive, engaging read – following the Pagan Wheel of the Year, Jennifer asks how witches and spiritual people all across the UK are connecting with the ‘magick’ in their lives. She explores the childhood draw of witchcraft and our vulnerability to toxic working relationships and digital demands. Her search of the wildness and wonder of our past is a tonic for those who are sick at heart of noise, anger and disconnection.
Full of wise words, crackling rituals and natural beauty, this is an inspiring quest to discover how to live fully connected to the natural world while firmly in twenty-first-century society.
‘Jennifer Lane casts a contrary nature spell over her readers, full of glitter and acorns, fire and firecrests.’ Derek Niemann, Guardian
‘Jennifer Lane’s writing is sincere, tender and rich with wonderment, empowering her readers to resist a conventional existence and look deeper into the heart of nature.’ Tiffany Francis, author of Dark Skies: A Journey into the Wild Night
‘A book that has grabbed me by my very core and inspired me to make some long-awaited changes in my own life… It’s a joyous and magickal experience.’ Carly Tremayne, The Folklore Podcast
