About Us

     Friday Gladheart writes for many Pagan, Wiccan, and secular publications. For decades she has written and illustrated the beloved Practical Witch’s Almanac. She spends most of her time making special blends for clients in her Practical Witch Apothecary, teaching, writing, counseling, and developing an organic teaching garden and sanctuary near the oldest National Forest in the southern United States. When possible, she is on tour for book signing appearances, workshops, and classes in Witchcraft, tarot, and herbalism. In 1996 she founded WitchAcademy.org*, the oldest and most highly respected online academy for Witchcraft, tarot, and magical herbalism.

Friday Gladheart, author

        Practical Witch LLC is owned and operated by a staff of one- Friday Gladheart.  She is developing a non-profit, organic teaching garden and sanctuary near a National Forest.  This sanctuary will become an event center for classes, workshops, and festivals as well as a safe-space for Witches and those following an Earth-based spiritual path.

     Custom, hand-made products such as incense, oils, and magical supplies are created from natural herbs and botanicals from the sanctuary.  Much of the jewelry offered is crafted from Friday’s hand-drawn designs found in the Almanac.  Tarot decks and divination supplies are carefully created or chosen to be easy to learn and use.

     Stop by The Practical Witch Apothecary inside The Parlour in Hot Springs, Arkansas to get your book signed, or just to chat with Friday.  A tour schedule will appear for other areas when travel recommences.
