She goes on to describe Witchcraft as involving up to three combined practices:
- As a Folk Art, invoking the Power of the energies of deities, spirits, and saints.
- As a Natural Craft, elevating the Mannuz (or self) in synchronization with the Universe by enhancing personal power from within, and then combining it with the energies of herbs and natural objects, then directing this energy to accomplish a goal. Conscious spellwork, ritual and tools function through the Elementals, and a Grimoire is created to codify tables of magical correspondences. Religion plays no part in Natural Craft.
- As a Religion, identifying the God and Goddess in partnership and union through self-dedication and communion, and directing magic through this union. The Divine All encompasses both God and Goddess, male and female in balance, both separate and united. Religious observances coincide with natural cycles, through observing Sabbats, Esbats, and special days honoring the Divine through the Wheel of the Year.
Throughout history, every culture has practiced magic in one form or another. Even though groups of people were not in contact with one another as is possible today, their fundamental beliefs regarding the cycles of life, the origins of creation, and deductions regarding the Divine (though called by different names within each culture) were strikingly similar.
