Summary

A witch is a wise woman, a healer. Yet for so long the word witch has had negative connotations. In this book, third generation hereditary witch Lisa Lister explains the history behind witchcraft, why identifying as a healer in past centuries led women to be burned at the stake, and why the witch is reawakening in women across the world today. This book provides an overview of the different schools of witchcraft and the core principles and practices within them. Discover ancient wisdom made relevant for modern witches: 

  • The wheel of the year, the sabbats, the cycles of the moon 
  • Tools to enhance your intuition, including oracle cards and dowsing, so that you can make decisions quickly and comfortably 
  • Understanding the ancient use of the word medicine  
  • How to work with herbs, crystals and power animals so that you have support in your spiritual work 
  • Work with the elements to achieve deep connection with the world around you 

In addition, Lisa teaches personal, hands-on rituals and spells from her family lineage of gypsy witch magic to help you heal, manifest, and rediscover your powers.

Amazing, Not for Audio in my opinion!

Would you try another book written by Lisa Lister or narrated by Lisa Lister?

Yes without a doubt. she is so passionate and that is very very contagious!

Was Witch worth the listening time?

Yes it is such an amazing and powerful book. It has influenced my lifestyle change hugely.

Any additional comments?

Even though i love this book, so much!! I dont think much of it is useful as an audio book. Due to recipes/spells etc included in the book i found i was having to write a huge amount down while listening. I have now ordered the papercopy because of this.

What an awful narrator and an even more awful book

I was suckered into buying this by the cover and description provided (luckily bought on sale). Do not waste your own time with this book if you want any kind of comprehensive learning experience. The authors rampant transphobia (clear from the start) is the stand out theme of this book, with her continually stating her cis centric view that >female< genital’s and reproductive systems are the source of witch power. Far from enlightening, this is self obsessed and misguided and I couldn’t even finish it I was so put off. She even in the introduction goes so far as to say you’re not a valid witch if you are not strong and confident and driven by the power of your genitals. Weird and stilted narration along with a handful of other non inclusionary stuff like dismissive cultural appropriation makes this a definite miss for anyone wanting a GOOD book on witchcraft.

Awful

Ive never written a review before, but I need to put this out there. I just couldn't get through this. I found it obnoxious and just terribly written. I mean how many times do you need to mention pussy power? Women need to reclaim power Yes but in order to bring about balance in the world. It's the worst bits of feminism and femalecentric pseudoscience and mysticism combined and condensed. It's certainly not the introduction to witchcraft I was hoping for, more like basic bitchcraft. Save your money and avoid.

Grounding

What made the experience of listening to Witch the most enjoyable?

I really enjoyed listening to Lisa Lister tell her story. She cuts through the crap and tells it as it is in a beautiful and inspiring way. This book is empowering and uplifting. I started listening to it when walking my dog and ended up having it on at all times, repeating chapters I loved, whilst, cooking, bathing, cleaning and even just doing nothing. I think it's even better that she's narrating her own book as the words ring even more true this way. She's clearly a very down to earth but powerful woman. I highly recommend this book to anyone who feels a bit lost in the word of Witches, or is afraid to speak about it, or even just curious. It will help guide you and let you become your own witch.

Inspiring, Reassuring, Powerful

A wonderfully magical book that simply gives permission for you, the reader, to explore, claim and develop a deeper understanding of you who you, as woman, and witch are.

Probably better to get physical book

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would. The information is good and inspiring.

What did you like best about this story?

The historical perspective and the modern day practicality

What about Lisa Lister’s performance did you like?

I liked her accent and passion

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No

Any additional comments?

I wish this book came with a PDF to download the list of herbs and crystals and their properties. It would also be nice to have access to the tea recipes, etc. It's going to be hard to track back through and find those reference items. The author should offer something on her website for audible book purchasers.

Do NOT buy, written by a TERF

I couldn’t get past the first 10 minutes of this thing. Absolutely nauseating. Being a witch isn’t just for women (yes, she says that). And not all women have vaginas! I’ve noticed that neo-paganism has brought a lot of comfort to the LGBTQIA+ community. I do believe that there is massive power in fertility and sex magick but to exclude a whole community of people from something that is based around inclusivity is disgusting.

An educational and enlightening Audiobook

I’m so glad I made the decision to listen to this Audiobook. Lister does a fantastic job of conveying the spirit and will that is the foundation of her book and message. It’s filled with experience, guides, tools, examples and shared stories. I also downloaded the text to keep as a reference. Fantastic!

Reclaiming witch

This isn't a silly Halloween story. It's an EPIC book about reclaiming the title WITCH! Lisa takes you on a journey from power to silence to remembering your intuition and reclaiming your feminine power. I love this book and find it's teachings so useful I plan to purchase a physical copy also

Fucking fantastic

This book was both accessible and deep. I cannot recommend it highly enough to any woman who wants to stand in her power and claim her womb given fierceness and magic.

I wish I could have gotten my money back

Waste of your money. Trite, preachy, terfy, and somewhat narcissistic. I couldn't even get past the first couple chapters.
