Green Witchcraft is a core practice of the traditions of earth magics, the Witchcraft of the Natural Witch, the Kitchen Witch, and the Cottage Witch. It is herbal, attuned to nature, and the foundation upon which any Craft tradition may be built. This book presents the Craft as a course of instruction, based on classes taught by the author. It utilizes Green Witchcraft as a textbook. Students will participate in assignments and practice activities as they learn techniques for circle casting, altars, divination, and spell working. Sample rituals and additional information is introduced to round out the student's instruction.
Ann Moura (Aoumiel) has been a solitary practitioner of Green Witchcraft for over thirty years. She derived her Craft name, Aoumiel, to reflect her personal view of the balance of the male and female aspects of the Divine. Her mother and grandmother were Craftwise Brazilians of Celtic-Iberian descent who, while operating within a general framework of Catholicism, passed along a heritage of folk magic and Craft concepts that involved spiritism, ancient Celtic deities, herbal spells, Green magic, reincarnation belief, and rules for using "the power."
In her practice of the Craft today, Aoumiel has moved away from the Christianized associations used by her mother and grandmother. She is focused on the basic Green level of Witchcraft and is teaching the next generation in her family. She took both her Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees in history. She is married, has a daughter and a son, and is a certified history teacher at the high school level.
