Low Magic

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

High Magic is the ceremonial variety, involving the use of carefully prepared "Instruments of the Art," intricate evocations and conjurations, and careful preparation of magician and tools. Low magic, by comparison, is simplicity itself and is the magic of the Hedge Witch and Cunning Man and Woman. It involves the use of ordinary, common items, such as sticks and stones, herbs, and roots. The secret of Low Magic is that the "power" is drawn from the earth or from within the Magician or Witch, rather than demanded from God and the Angels through "Words of Power."

Another name for Low Magic is Folk Magic or Natural Magic, since it does not favor the strict disciplines and severe regimens of Ceremonial Magic.
