In Faery Seership the truths we seek can only be found within ourselves, within nature, and within our relationships to nature. At the center of the Faery Tradition lies the Tree of Enchantment: the symbol for these relationships and for the threefold life of humanity. At each level of the tree, there are attending spirit forces that vary from beings of light to beings of shadow, from the ancestors of humanity to the architects of form and nature, from the destiny of our planet to the creation forces of the universe. The tree's roots grow through the lower world, where all life originates and the dead travel, its trunk and lower branches reach out across the middle world, where elemental forces and the four directions guide us, and its highest branches reach the into the upper world and the Star realm.

Weaving together folk tradition and extensive academic research, Orion Foxwood has created and accessible, beautifully written pathway into the Old Religion of Faery Seership. Based on Appalachian traditions, Wiccan studies, Celtic oral traditions, and the Craft from Western and Northern Europe, The Tree of Enchantment offers the student of Faery Tradition both introductory and advanced visionary practices and authentic tools to learn to navigate the three realms of humanity. With diligence and an open heart, the reader will learn to cross The River of Blood, pass through The Gate of Awakening, and over The River of Stars.

Destined to become a classic...This is a wise and wonderful book to be studied and savored, its teachings and methods diligently applied. -Margie McArthur, author of Faery Healing: The Lore and the Legacy; Wisdom of the Elements: The Sacred Wheel of Earth, Air, Fire and Water; and WiccaCraft for Families: The Path of the Hearthfire

The Tree of Enchantment is a rare and beautiful piece of esoteric writing that is fresh, vibrant, and ready for this age and those to come. It is a true guide for helping mend the rifts and fractures within the self and between the planes of being. -Ivo Dominguez, Jr., author of Spirit Speak, Castings: The Creation of Sacred Space, and Beneath The Skins

I say this with the deepest conviction and without a tinge of hyperbole: Orion Foxwood is a national treasure. His Tree of Enchantment is a brilliant and elegant jewel of modern magical literature and a testament to his genius and insight. -Lon Milo DuQuette, author of Enochian Vision Magick

Review:

"The Tree of Enchantment is an important and profound work written by one of the most significant authors of this genre today. This book offers insights and techniques that can come only from deep levels of direct experience and the wisdom that results from personal effort. I highly recommend The Tree of Enchantment" -Raven Grimassi

"In The Tree of Enchantment, my dear friend Lord Orion Foxwood offers a brilliant and inspiring synthesis of the most universal premises underlying the world-views of magickal cultures throughout the world--especially those associated with the realms that in Western tradition are called "Faery." The seed of these precepts is the metaphor of the Tree, with its three components: branches reaching into the World Above; roots delving into the World Below, and the trunk connecting these in the Middle World. Through engaging parables, charts, images and poetry, Lord Foxwood expands and applies this metaphor to all aspects of creation--revealing our own human origins, place, and destiny therein." -Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, author of Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard

"Orion Foxwood is a seer whose message--our human soul and the soul of the Earth are as one--is much needed in these times of change and possibility." --T. Thorn Coyle, teacher and author of Evolutionary Witchcraft and Kissing the Limitless

"Orion Foxwood sees discontent as the prod that sets you on the quest for your divine heritage and purpose. In The Tree of Enchantment, Foxwood offers well-seasoned visualizations and exercises that will open gateways connecting your human self to Nature and to the three dimensions of reality. I recommend this book as a valuable guide to aligning yourself with the Tree in the three realms and, thus, to awakening the creative self that helps you fulfill your spiritual destiny." -Mary K. Greer, author of 21 Ways to Read a Tarot Card

"TheTree of Enchantment is a rare and beautiful piece of esoteric writing that is fresh, vibrant, and ready for this age and those to come. It is a true guide for helping mend the rifts and fractures within the self and between the planes of being." -Ivo Dominguez, Jr., author of Spirit Speak, Castings: The Creation of Sacred Space, and Beneath The Skins

"A truly enchanting gateway into a authentic spiritual tradition guided by the spirits, with roots deep in the Earth and a true understanding of the stars. I always learn a great deal from Orion writings and workshops and highly recommend them." -Christopher Penczak, author of The Temple of Shamanic Witchcraft and Ascension Magick

"Orion is smart, savvy, funny, and down to earth with great wisdom

about Witchcraft and Paganism." -Margot Adler, author of Drawing Down the Moon

"The well-being of both humanity and our world requires that we come closer in spirit and love to the earth. The magical and healing power of our incarnations arise not only from transcendental levels but from our roots in the earth, in our lineages, and in our ancestors.  Orion's book provides a powerful path into these roots and then out to the flowering of an eco-spirituality and an eco-magic that cannot help but bring blessings to our planet." -David Spangler, author of Blessing: The Art and the Practice

"I say this with the deepest conviction and without a tinge of hyperbole; Orion Foxwood is a national treasure. His Tree of Enchantment is a brilliant and elegant jewel of modern magical literature and a testament to his genius and insight." -Lon Milo DuQuette, author of Enochian Vision Magick

"In this fascinating and educational work, Orion Foxwood provides a comprehensive course of study that puts new focus on ancient Faery traditions. The book leads the seeker from the seed of The Tree of Enchantment (that seed is universal divine discontent) to the culmination of truth and satisfaction found within each and every one of us. The journey is a true delight, giving new dimensions to ancient traditions. As Orion says: "The Tree provides a clear understanding of humanity's soul experiences in relationship to the soul of the world." Read it; learn; enjoy!" -Raymond Buckland, author of Buckland's Book of Saxon Witchcraft, and The Weiser Field Guide to Ghosts
