review Slavic Witchcraft 103 A practical guide to the ancient magical tradition of Russian sorcery and Eastern Slavic magical rites • Offers step by step instructions for than 300 spells incantations charms amulets and practical rituals for love career success protection healing divination communicating with spirits and ancestors and other challenges and situations • Reveals specific places of magical power in the natural world as well as the profound power of graveyards and churches for casting spells • Explores the folk history of this ancient magical tradition including how the pagan gods gained new life as Eastern Orthodox saints and shares folktales of magical beings including sorceresses shapeshifting into animals and household objects Passed down through generations the Slavic practice of magic witchcraft and sorcery is still alive and well in Russia the Ukraine and Belarus as well as the Balkans and the Baltic states The. Slavic Witchcraft is a fascinating book which provides a comprehensive introduction to Slavic paganism witchcraft magic folklore and divination Helvin provides us with a brief overview of her life growing up in the Soviet state details of some of the cultural beliefs and practices and the concept of dual faith where there is a blurring of lines between the old paganism of Russia and Christianity This I found really interesting and I would have liked a bit on both the cultural and religious background here and of Helvin s own experiences whilst growing up She has a deep love and respect for her upbringing her elders and ancestors and the magical practices shared within the family and this shines through the text The latter part of the book is separated into chapters for spells and charms love money protection house and home health dreams divination and cemetery traditions Helvin also covers superstitions and burial practices of both Orthodox traditions and regional family groups She does not shy away from difficult subject matter and does discuss darker aspects of sorcery and magic including graveyard spells crossroad curses and I found this book to be refreshingly balanced in that the baneful magics are covered as well as the benignant ones showing maturity and depth Slavic Witchcraft reminds me of elements of Corinne Boyer s Under the Witching Tree and Judika Illes Element Encyclopedia of 5000 Spells in that it blends folklore with witchery culture and magic spellcraft and religion in a cohesive way I learned a lot about Slavic practices and at the same time recognised a lot of my own beliefs and practices within these pages I really enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it I received an e ARC from the publisher Inner Traditions through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

review Slavic Witchcraft 103 In Christian veneer over its pagan origins and how the Slavic pagan gods and goddesses acuired new lives as the saints of the Eastern Orthodox Church She details how the magical energy for these spells and rituals is drawn from the forces of nature revealing specific places of power in the natural world as well as the profound power of graveyards and churches for casting spells She explores the creation of amulets and talismans the importance of icons and the proper recital of magical language and actions during spells as well as how one becomes a witch or sorceress Offering a close examination of these two thousand year old occult practices Helvin also includes Slavic folk advice adapted for the modern era Revealing what it means to be a Slavic witch or sorceress and how this vocation pervades all aspects of life she shows that each of us has magic within that we can use to take control of our own destiny. Lovely to find a book that covers something other than Wicca world However the word slavic covers a lot of territory in central and eastern Europe In this book the author is referring to the east specifically Russia and Ukraine and the population under the Eastern Orthodox Church The western part like Poland which is my ancestry under the sway of the Roman Catholic Church is not part of the book s purviewMs Helvin does a good job with an overview of the old folkloric traditions Many of the superstitions will be familiar to anyone who knows about events like the Salem witch trials poor elderly women are viewed with suspicion everywhere apparently Examples of magic rituals are given also familiar to anyone with a nodding acuaintance of folk magic By far the best part of the book were the death and graveyard traditions practices and rituals This was unknown territory for me and I found the information fascinating and informative It definitely adds to my knowledge baseI could have wished for but it is what it is A good overall introduction to eastern Slavic magic and folklore
