      Hi, my name is Yvonne Aburrow, and I studied Contemporary Religions and Spiritualities at Bath Spa University from 2006 to 2008.

      I have written several books, most recently on inclusive Wicca.

      Nice to meet you!  Patricia Robin Woodruff here.  I’ve been deeply immersed in the study of the ancient pre-Christian religions of the Slavic area (Old Europe and beyond).  It’s been an exciting adventure of discovery.  Now I just need some grad-students to help me write about 25 papers while I work on my 5 volume set of books The Roots of Slavic Magic!  I have a Facebook group under that name if anyone is interested in the topic.

      Welcome Patricia. I know a lot of Polish Wiccans who will be very interested in your books.

      I had The Bath House at Midnight but didn’t find the magic described in it to be very different from the rest of Europe. I was expecting more chyerti (bannikoi, domovoi, leshy etc).
