From spells to mindfulness, this work offers some methods to help boost holistic health...[w]hether readers are seasoned practitioners or baby witches--or just open-minded people interested in expanding their self-care toolboxes--this is a fantastic resource for getting a new perspective on why these practices are potentially valuable and how they interrelate to one's physical, mental, and metaphysical well-being.

A valuable resource filled with productive possibilities.--Kirkus Reviews
This book is a combination of personal history, explorations of occult practices, interviews, selfhelp, hands-on how-tos, reassurances, and affirmations. The result is a useful guide that should help magic-minded teens get their lives together, or at least feel better about themselves...this respectful, in-depth guide will make a handsome addition to collections that support a spiritualminded clientele.--Booklist
"In a welcoming volume on self-care approached via practical and magical means...Scelsa sensitively emphasizes inclusion and curating affirming spaces for audiences across myriad identities. It's a useful starting point for those looking for a wider awareness of the possibilities of magic and magical thinking--one that encourages self-understanding, self-confidence, curiosity, and compassion."--Publishers Weekly
