Spirit of Place

The wild landscape, its lonely places and potent ‘pulse spots’ are of great importance to the path of the traditional magical practitioner; visited in pilgrimage by the witch, there to imbibe of and learn from the spirit of place.

Here are just some of the places special and inspiring to me.
