A Spell of Becoming
Cast on Yourself a Living Spell of Becoming with this Love Song to Witches
We are emergent, embedded, arising, collapsing, changing beings in all worlds at all times. You will find that it takes that leap—that fall, that breaking apart of what is considered to be certain—to dance with the queer cunning current of witchery.
This book is offered as a spell of becoming that you cast on yourself with every step—a living spell of you and your intimacy with the life-force and the mystery. You will dance with your demons and make pacts with your spirits and gods. You will sing yourself back to life by letting yourself be sung and danced through the eye of the needle by all that calls you to this work. If you take the risk, you will learn to capture the glorious essence of magic and navigate witchcraft with your own heart.
Includes a foreword by Courtney Weber, author of Hekate: Goddess of Witches
“The Witch Belongs to the World is erudite and alive, as poetic and transgressive as it is transformative. Where I might have an inkling, a hint of a complex spiritual insight, Fio snatches it from thin air and renders it like an opened honeycomb dripping with sweet secrets and mystery. Fio’s content is whip smart and the delivery to readers is like a mist one walks through until they’re gloriously soaked to the bone….If we’re lucky enough to pick up this volume and follow its wise instruction, we’ll be transported through an unexpected journey into the heart of our power, into the soul of the Craft.”—Timothy Roderick, author of Dark Moon Mysteries
“A poetic, intimate, at times confronting encounter with a voice that convinces you of the extraordinary potential of our craft.”—Lee Morgan, author of Sounds of Infinity
“A winding journey into the deep heart of magic and Craft. This book will guide you through the realms of spirit, shadow, and story to stoke the inner flame that grows your magic, all while exploring the untamed, intimate, and transcendent work of breaking binaries and cultivating true power—the power to change the world.”—Nicholas Pearson, author of Flower Essences from the Witch’s Garden
“It is rare to find witchcraft books that speak so deeply to the soul. I felt my senses and my magick responding palpably to each step as I allowed myself to drink from its poetry and beauty.”—Petrucia Finkler, Brazilian witch, teacher, and author of Os Quatro Saberes
“A breathtakingly rich and poetic chronicle of modern witchery, a provocative call to arms, and a generous guide to empowerment and self-initiation for magical folk, old and new. Fio pulls no punches in lovingly daring emergent witches to uncover and embrace the dissent, responsibility, love, and power at the heart of their magic and reminds adept practitioners just what it means to commit to the path, again and again.”—Jerico Mandybur, bestselling author and tarot/oracle creator
“As you read you become both the enchanted and the enchanter. Fio offers up experiences, memories, and visions that are uncannily beautiful, filled with colors, shadows, and the smell of rich earth, the substance of witchcraft….This book is a dreamwalk, a pathworking, a soul flight that awakens the call to be the witch that the world needs in these times of great change and possibility.”—Ivo Dominguez Jr., author of The Four Elements of the Wise
“This book is for anyone who’s curious about a life that dares to tread outside of the constraints and binaries of empire, for anyone curious enough to listen to the deep, dark quiet of the witches’ heart.”—Toad Dell, co-creator of PermaQueer
“The Witch Belongs to the World is a brutal, beautiful look at who and what witches are and can be; it sings along the edge between poetry and prose. Saturated with spirits, it speaks to us of a witchcraft that is experiential and vital, that is lived and remembered, that is modern and primal. Truly a must-read for anyone who is a witch or wants to be one.”—Morgan Daimler, author of Fairycraft
“Fio Gede Parma’s words move me in a way many simply cannot, and it is in the empowering, provocative explorations found in this book that we find the true nature of the Witch as a transgressive, oracular force.”—Mhara Starling, author of Welsh Witchcraft
“Fio rightly acknowledges the Witch as being ‘outside’, transgressing the perceived norm of consensus reality and challenging society to face its shortcomings and evolve, to awaken to the Lady who is Power and Beauty’.”—Ian Chambers, author of The Witch Compass
