Learning by experiencing is about trusting your instincts and connecting with your inner self.
Hedge witchery in general is experimental and a slow and natural progression of interests and events often experienced from childhood and persisting all through your life. As Aristotle said, ‘for the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them.’ Learning by experiencing is about trusting your instincts and connecting with your inner spirit.
There is no dogma attached to hedge witchcraft. There are no tenets to follow. And if you asked a hundred hedge witches what their practice is, you will get a variety of different answers. The path of a hedge witch is very much an individual one, and it is a solitary practice. In this way, this book is based on my own experiences as a hedge witch living in Ireland following the Celtic path. This book will guide you if you wish to read more about hedge witchcraft as a pathway, or are already following such a path.
