“Pure Magic explores the ins and outs of magic in a manner that is approachable for the beginner, but there's also a rare depth of practical wisdom for successful magic and spiritual partnership which may not be obvious on the first reading. This is a book that I've returned to periodically over the years and each time I'm struck by insight and perspective that continues to enhance and level-up my own magic and relationship with spirits.”
