Earth Works

Ballard, H. Byron: Earth Works – Ceremonies in Tower Time

We wander through woods, on a path well trod. Single file sometimes but best in groups that chat and laugh and look forward. In the clearing there, up ahead—an old rock table with an uneven surface.  On it sits a bowl of sand from a river not far. We come to stand in a circle around this table, in this place. Shoulder to shoulder to shoulder, looking forward still—in messy, prickly, joyous community, we lean in together—and light the flame. Light in the forest. Light in the world. Light in our wounded and wondering hearts. “Earthwork” is a word used to ...

Embracing Willendorf by Byron Ballard

This is a saga both serious and ridiculous of how the author came to love her body and listen to it, even when it whispered nonsensical things.  Embracing Willendorf: A Witch’s Way of Loving Your Body to Health and Fitness is a kind of memoir, a story of walking and pondering, of thongs and tight Levis.  And it is about transformation. About choosing to be healthier and achieving that through a wonderfully simple idea—that when we love our bodies, we will do what we need to do to nourish these exquisite and beautiful machines. Try out the tasty and healthy recipes ...

After years of pondering, Byron Ballard has written a primer for the kind of magic she practices. Driven to it by colleagues, friends and students, writing this little book is an act of stubborn devotion to a fading culture. This deceptively simple system of folk magic has come down to modern Southern culture through the immigrants and natives who called these blue hills home. Written in an easily accessible style and filled with insights and stories, Staubs and Ditchwater: a Friendly and Useful Introduction to Hillfolks’ Hoodoo is part memoir, part workbook. $15.00 plus s/h ...

Asfidity and Mad-Stones Byron Ballard

Ballard, H. Byron: Asfidity and Mad-Stones

Asfidity & Mad-Stones: A Further Ramble Through Hillfolks' Hoodoo Sharing these practices and this beloved but fading culture has led me far afield, teaching and speaking. I’ve rambled from the bayous of Louisiana to the ruined hills of West Virginia, and from Memphis to Glastonbury in search of stories and materials and ways of doing. There are so many old ideas newly integrated into my personal practice and my teaching – enough to fill a book. And here it is. span style="color: #000000;">May you remember well and enjoy this next journey. $15.00, includes s/h ...
