Publisher's Summary

A guide to plant spirit ritual and witchcraft with practical instruction on the use of botanicals, especially associated with the beloved goddess Hekate and her daughters Circe and Medea.

Bringing pharmakeia (the practice of plant spirit witchcraft) into contemporary times, Entering Hekate's Garden merges historical knowledge with modern techniques. In it, author Cyndi Brannen offers her extensive insight into Hekatean ritual and witchcraft and especially its application to the Green World. The book features detailed monographs dedicated to 39 plants ranging from the esoteric such as aconite, American mandrake, and damiana to the accessible including bay laurel, dandelion, fennel, garlic, juniper, and lavender.

This book blends traditional methods with the author's personal approach, emphasizing her understanding of plant spirits as allies in the witch's journey. It includes a new taxonomy for interpreting plant energies, methods for creating new correspondences, the importance of layering, using botanicals in spells, rituals, altars, and more, as well as ways to develop meaningful relationships with the pharmakoi (master plant spirits). Poetry, petitions, and musings about pharmakeia are woven throughout. Entering Hekate's Garden takes listeners deep into the mystical world of botanical witchery in a way no other book has before.

Brilliant

I have long wanted a book like Entering Hekate’s Garden: The Magick, Medicine & Mystery of Plant Spirit Witchcraft to exist. As a devotee of Hekate, the botanical connections of Hekate and her priestess-witch daughters in mythology and lore has always fascinated me. For many years, I have wanted to take the time to compile all the lore together myself for my own personal practice. Luckily, Cyndi Brannen has done all the heavy lifting for us.

In Entering Hekate's Garden, she has taken the seeds of ancient and classical lore and grown something lush, beautiful, new, and extremely beneficial for any modern witch, while also maintaining the historical roots. I greatly enjoy all of Cyndi’s works and books, but this is by far my favorite of hers to date. I know it will be a book that I reference often in my personal magickal practice and devotional work

Entering Hekate’s Garden places the Ancient Greek practice of pharmakeia back at the forefront of Hekatean devotion and magick, allowing for a fresh, contemporary approach to the practices of the green witch. The book features a lot of beautiful botanical monographs and has a bit of a traditional grimoire feel to it, all while being highly accessible, practical, and powerful. This book is a gem for both the Hekatean devotee and the practitioner of green witchcraft that shouldn’t be missed.
