Margie McArthur is a thoughtful and communicative writer who knows her subject deeply, and demonstrates it with great clarity. I wish that this book had been available when I started, 30 years ago!

"This is the finest and most complete book on working with the elements that I have ever read. Margie McArthur manages to combine well-researched information from traditions all over the world, with highly effective exercises that lead the reader to a deeper understanding and experience of the power of the elements in their lives."

"McArthur encourages us to dare, to will, to know, and to experience the elements on an intimate level -- know them in ourself, others and the earth."
"A complete, concise elemental mulit-pedia that includes correspondences, altars, exercises, dreamlore, healing hints and much, much more!"
-Trish Telesco
Author of Spinning Spells, Weaving Wonders, Language of Dreams, and A Victorian Grimoire
"Knowledge of the four elements of ancient philosophy is fundamental to the mystery traditions that include Tarot, Astrology, Wicca and Ceremonial Magick. Persons working within those traditions - or those who just seek greater esoteric knowledge - will therefore find Wisdom of the Elements a valued sourcebook because Margie McArthur has compressed so much basic information and philosophy into one book.
"...Margie has brought new insights into the elemental qualities, new connections, and new dimensions of understanding....This book will help you enjoy a RELATIONSHIP with the elements as living energies and entities, and it will help you to perceive things as Goethe's Faust wished to: to 'learn the fabric of the world.'"
- Janina Renee
Author of Tarot Spells, Playful Magic, Tarot: Your Everyday Guide, Tarot for a New Generation, and By Candlelight: Rites for Celebration, BLessing & Prayer
"Wisdom of the Elements is, by far, THE DEFINITIVE BOOK on using the elements, Earth, Air, Fire and Water for personal empowerment and growth. McArthur provides earth-spirited exercises and hands-on methods for balancing the elements within ourselves. Enlightening, fascinating and useful, Wisdom of the Elements is must reading for all those with a keen interest in the Craft and neopaganism."
