Synopsis: Magic is a spiritual path which is not very well understood in our society. This is because the theory and practice of magic have never before been explained clearly and convincingly, in a way that makes sense to intelligent and thoughtful people. Written in a sassy, irreverent style, What is Magic? discusses how such otherworldly concepts as demons, casting spells, and bewitching are just the hidden underside of everyday society – the skeletons in everybody’s closet. What is Magic? answers the questions which all serious spiritual seekers, no matter what their spiritual path, ask at one time or another, but can never find satisfactorily answered:
1) What is the difference between faith and fooling yourself?
2) What is the relationship between altered states and normal, everyday life?
3) If you lose your desires, as many spiritual paths advocate, what zest or spice does life have left?
