BABA YAGA by Natalia Clarke

by: Natalia Clarke

This is a new book from John Hunt Publishing which describes another ancient goddess, this time from the Slavic tradition. It’s a deep dive that explores the forests in search of a wild figure who will not make herself comfortable in our homes or on our altars. It’s for those who are attracted to the shadows. Baba Yaga is a Slavic Earth Goddess of mystery, intrigue and ambiguity. Much of what most people know about her is based on folk-tales but she can in fact be one of the most powerful and influential figures in an individual spiritual practice. An accessible guide to building a devotional practice, Baba Yaga is a journey of discovery and collaboration with deity, written to offer a unique presentation of how we might work with the Goddess, psychologically and spiritually. It’s a shame though about the sensationalized and disturbing front cover.
