REVIEW: Lisa Lister’s WITCH – Unleashed. Untamed. Unapologetic (Published by HayHouse)
So, firstly I must make a confession, the vast majority of the books that I “read” I actually listen to whilst I’m out on my walks each morning with my spoodle, Millie. It’s a great opportunity to kill two birds with one stone (exercise and reading) and it often gives a different dimension when you hear the book read by the author themselves. This was definitely a book where the author narration was an added feature.
I stumbled across this book as a recommendation on Audible and it piqued my interest after only just having finished Light is the New Black by Rebecca Campbell. I was hooked from the outset, although initially it was a bit jolting in its unapologetic feminine dialogue. Lisa tells of the history around the ancient witches, the different types of witchcraft and why we should all do our bit to reclaim the word Witch.
WITCH – Unleashed. Untamed. Unapologetic. serves as a high-level reference book on the methods and principles of witchcraft, enough so that if there is something that resonates, you can go and explore further. It also acts as a call to action to acknowledge the Divine Feminine within us all and #wakethewitches.
The more that you look into the world of witches, what they stand for, believe and acknowledge – the less “woo woo” it appears and it all sounds more and more practical and sensible.
A recommended read for anyone at all interested in the witchy world and how we can bring it into our everyday lives. I enjoyed this book so much that as well as the audio, I have now bought the paperback and I intend to refer to it as a reference as I lean more into the practice. In fact, I figure here is a good place for me to track and document the journey and carry out my very own #wakethewitchproject
