Maia Toll's Wild Wisdom series - The Illustrated Herbiary, The Illustrated Bestiary, and The Illustrated Crystallary - introduced readers to the mystical energy of the animal, vegetable, and mineral kingdoms. In this capstone to the Wild Wisdom series, Maia Toll's Wild Wisdom Companionguides readers in developing a personalised earth-based spiritual practice using rituals, writing prompts, recipes, symbols, and reflections tied to each season. Organised into 12 chapters - Winter Solstice, Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice, Autumnal Equinox, plus early and late stages of each of the four seasons - the book features seasonal practices; exercises for the body and for writing and reflection; plant, animal, and mineral medicine; and symbolic explorations of the gifts and challenges that arise with seasonal change.
