Practically Pagan: An Alternative Guide to Health & Well-Being

Irisanya Moon. Moon, $14.95 trade paper (160p) ISBN 978-1-78904-377-8

Pagan priestess Moon (Reclaiming Witchcraft) presents a thoughtful assortment of concepts and activities meant to increase mindfulness and overall health. Organized into chapters that cover the body, mind, and spirit, Moon’s work brings together meditations, journaling exercises, and contemplative activities that provide outlets for readers to reconsider ingrained responses and beliefs in order to “create a foundation that weathers all that comes before you.” Prompts include the tracking of eating habits and energy levels, developing a sleeping ritual, setting up an altar, and creating a plan for support during times of crisis. Pagan practices, such as contacting deities and using energy pentacles, are covered, but the spiritual conversations are open to customization and accessible to those not necessarily interested in paganism. Moon also tackles social media and advises “only connecting with people and groups that feel nourishing to you.” Paganists and general spiritualists looking for simple approaches to reinvigorating their daily routine will find much to appreciate.
