Next come five sections that form the bulk of the book: Balance Spells, Air Spells, Fire Spells, Water Spells, and Earth Spells. What is an Air spell and why would you do one?

You’ll find handy charts, private and group exercises, spells, rituals and quizzes. This in-depth study of elemental lore will also include a brief history of the elements in Western magic.
