"Gede Parma and Jane Meredith have excelled themselves in putting together one of the most comprehensive compilations of practices found in the Reclaiming Tradition. This will not only be useful for anyone who is following the Reclaiming path, but also those who are solitary or want to build on their coven practices."—Janet Farrar and Gavin Bone, teachers and authors of The Inner Mysteries and Lifting the Veil

"Elements of Magic is a soulful and grounded offering that honors the past while inviting the future."—Ivo Dominguez Jr., author and elder in the Assembly of the Sacred Wheel

"In this approachable, engaging guide, Jane Meredith and Gede Parma seamlessly weave together an introduction to Reclaiming and a course in the foundations of natural magic. With brilliant contributions by more than a dozen witches, activists, priestesses, and storytellers, there is something here for you...You'll experience the Craft as practiced by one of its most longstanding and entrenched traditions."—Thorn Mooney, Gardnerian priestess and author of Traditional Wicca

"Reclaiming has so much to offer with its insights into community work, activist magic, and bringing healing to this planet...This book is like a dandelion seed-head, spreading wild wisdom and ecstatic practice."—Tony Rella, author of Circling the Star

"This array of essays, exercises, and rituals at once honors the practices from which our knowledge of the elements comes and explores the depth and richness that the Reclaiming movement has developed over the years. Elements of Magic will be a valuable resource for those who seek a spiritual connection to our world, whatever their tradition."—Diana L. Paxson, author of Trance-Portation

Gede Parma (Fio Aengus) is a Balinese-Australian witch, international teacher, magical mentor, author, and initiate. Gede (they/them pronouns) cherishes the initiatory mysteries of four powerful witchcraft traditions, and is a co-founder of the Coven of the Wildwood and midwife and initiate of the Wildwood Tradition. They are also an active initiate of Reclaiming and Anderson Feri. Gede has authored or coauthored five books.

Gede/Fio's work links animism to heresy to sorcery to poetry to spirit-work to sex to faerie faith to folklore. Most of their time is spent reading Tarot, working magic, teaching and celebrating the Craft, mentoring witches and spirit-workers, singing and drumming, and laughing with friends. 

They currently reside in the lands of the Jagera and Turrbal Peoples, in so-called Brisbane, Australia.
