“Our cultural obsession with witches parallels our preoccupation with wilderness. This infatuation may provide insight into how we see our place in the natural world.”

Nature Meets Mind, Deanna Molnar, 2019.

Read it here.

It’s a very interesting read, exploring the objectification of women’s bodies, the Jungian Witch/Priestess archetype, witches as healers who valued nature’s healing powers, witches in religion/folk/arts/culture, and so on… but I don’t think there’s anything specifically there that feels relevant to me or my practice. Interesting read though!
