- a primer on the four elements,
- a survey of magical supplies (including minerals and botanicals),
- and a compendium of spells for any situation.
Also included is guidance on how and where to practice magic; how to rightly use words of power; and how to cleanse, protect, and enhance your magical self.

“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.”
