About Althaea Sebastiani

Althaea Sebastiani is a spirit led witch of over two decades of practice. Her witchcraft is heavily land based, focused on building a relationship with the spirits of the land wherever her travels take her. Part of that strong focus includes relying upon the land and her own ingenuity for any tools, herbs, and materials used in her craft and for honoring her Gods. That current of flexibility, integrity, and pragmatic innovation is woven throughout her writing, as well as being prominent within her divination services as a bone thrower. When not writing or cavorting with spirits, Althaea spends her time wrangling six half feral children with her husband, wandering about the West, and living off grid in the wilderness.

Amazing book! Althaea did a really good job sharing her knowledge and wisdom about warding. It's an easy read, full of tips and ideas to build of off. Althaea makes you want to do the work, not just read about it. I highly recommend this book!

Thank you so much for this book! It’s so informative, fun and easy to read, and practical. I actually got off my backside and created my first ward, and once this review is posted, I’m working on more. The order and organization of this book is great, too, as is the level of detail in descriptions of types of wards. The only thing that could have made this book better (for me), is a more clear, chronological, step-by-step guide, maybe towards the end for a wrap-up. But as it is, I figured it out anyway! Can’t wait to read more!

Althaea Sebastiani delivers the goods! I've been practicing magic in one form or another for years and even I didn't know some of the stuff she was laying out in here. Seems so obvious now, but I never would have thought of it on my own. This is one of those books I wish I'd had way back when I was starting out. No "cute" witchcraft here--just the "roll up your sleeves and get dirty" kind.
