Feasting from the black Cauldron talks about things that are often overlooked or ignored by today's authors in the modern witchcraft movement. It covers topics such as Ignem Serpentes, Terra Umrae and the Crossroads at night. Many books today are filled with basic outer court training, bu this book picks up where many other books leave off. The author challenges his readers to think beuond the contemporary literature of some of the bigger publishing companies.
"Amaranthus has given the world a rare glimpse into the abiding spirit, primal presence, living legacy and witchery of the Old Craft - the Craft I know and love. In these days of repeated tables of correspondence, divinities and spirits spoken of as "energies", "archetypes" and symbols; Feasting from the Black Cauldron hearkens back to a time when witches were witches. When witches were born of the Old Blood that when awakened gave unusual powers and skills that made us feared and revered. And most importantly, the familial bonds of clan and coven that extend beyond time place and life-times that links us to the witches beyond the veil. I will recommend this book to my students and initiates. Now, take a breath, open the book and let the door of your soul open and you may find the words you have sought to understand the witchery working through you."

“For those looking to make their first connection with a traditional style of witchcraft, Feasting From The Black Cauldron will serve as an invaluable introductory guide through the crooked path of the Old Ways, when the practices of the witch weren’t watered down, sanitized, nor for the faint of heart. Amaranthus provides his own interesting insights, perspectives, and rituals to the traditional lore and practices of Trad Craft, assisting the seeker in tapping into a primal current of historical witchery often swept under the rug in mainstream paganism and magick.”
