About the author:
Sarah Kate Istra Winter has been a polytheist for over 20 years, and an animist since childhood. She first discovered the liminal magic of urban spaces in a hidden alley in Portland, Maine, but only deepened into a full spirit-walking practice after moving across the country and meeting the potent wights of Eugene, Oregon. She has explored the numinous landscape of cities from Athens to London to Boston, but has found a home in the Pacific Northwest, where moss-covered trees line the streets and sturdy rain boots are an indispensible ritual accoutrement.

The City Is a Labyrinth

A Walking Guide for Urban Animists

Authored by Sarah Kate Istra Winter

The city is alive with spirits—from those found in remaining natural areas to those who are unique to the realm of concrete and steel. But how can we connect with these spirits, and build a powerful, meaningful localized practice in an urban environment? Polytheist, animist, and spirit-worker Sarah Kate Istra Winter suggests a radically simple approach: walking. Inspired by the field of psychogeography and informed by her many years as a spiritually-minded pedestrian, she examines the ways in which walking can be a devotional and magical act.

Explore the numinous places of the city and the wights who dwell there with this pocket-sized guide, perfect for taking along on your journeys.
