This text recaptures the vigour and power of ancient witchcraft through an innovative fusion of Shamanism and Pagan ritual. It describes how the use of masks in witchcraft ritual can lead to altered states of consciousness, creating a direct channel of communication between the masked dancer and the Pagan gods. The authors discuss the power of the mask, the historical and religious connections between masked rituals and the underworld, and a discussion of the trance itself.

Evan John Jones first came into contact with Witchcraft and the occult during the 1960's, a time of great change in Britain which stemmed from the repeal in 1951 of the Witchcraft Act. By 1960, Witchcraft as a subject was firmly placed in the practical mind. He was one of the few people who actually worked with the late Robert Cochran, a leading figure in the British Craft revival of the 1960's. His interest in Witchcraft both in theory and as a practical system of belief has never wavered. Ex-regular Army and an engineer by profession, he was later forced by ill health to retire. He is married and now lives in Brighton, not far from the Downs where he first experienced the magic of the Witches' circle. Chas S. Clifton holds a master's degree in religious studied with an emphasis on the development of new religious movements. He lives in the Wet Mountains of Colorado where he writes about Western esoteric traditions. ~
