Wisdom of the Elements
|Margie has done
it again! From her wide knowledge, open mind, and deep practice, she has given us a very
valuable tool for living harmoniously on this sacred wheel of life."
- Brooke Medicine Eagle, American Native Earthkeeper, teacher and ceremonial leader
Author of Buffalo Woman Comes Singing and The Last Ghost Dance: A Guide for Earth Mages
is a thoughtful and communicative writer who knows her subject deeply, and demonstrates it
with great clarity. I wish that this book had been available when I started, 30 years ago!

|"This is the finest and most
complete book on working with the elements that I have ever read. Margie McArthur manages
to combine well-researched information from traditions all over the world, with highly
effective exercises that lead the reader to a deeper understanding and experience of the
power of the elements in their lives."
- Philip Carr-Gomm, Chosen Chief, Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids (OBOD)
Author of The Druid Animal Oracle, The Druid Way, and The Elements of the Druid Tradition
|"McArthur encourages us to dare,
to will, to know, and to experience the elements on an intimate level -- know them in
ourself, others and the earth."
"A complete, concise elemental mulit-pedia that includes correspondences, altars, exercises, dreamlore, healing hints and much, much more!"
Author of Spinning Spells, Weaving Wonders, Language of Dreams, and A Victorian Grimoire
|"Knowledge of the four elements of ancient philosophy is fundamental to the mystery traditions that include Tarot, Astrology, Wicca and Ceremonial Magick. Persons working within those traditions - or those who just seek greater esoteric knowledge - will therefore find Wisdom of the Elements a valued sourcebook because Margie McArthur has compressed so much basic information and philosophy into one book.|
|"...Margie has brought new
insights into the elemental qualities, new connections, and new dimensions of
understanding....This book will help you enjoy a RELATIONSHIP with the elements as living
energies and entities, and it will help you to perceive things as Goethe's Faust wished
to: to 'learn the fabric of the world.'"

|"Wisdom of the Elements
is, by far, THE DEFINITIVE BOOK on using the elements, Earth, Air, Fire and Water for
personal empowerment and growth. McArthur provides earth-spirited exercises and hands-on
methods for balancing the elements within ourselves. Enlightening, fascinating and useful,
Wisdom of the Elements is must reading for all those with a keen interest in the
Craft and neopaganism."
