A distiction in magic, usually denoting those practices and traditions which require few or simpler materials, or has a distinct lack of ritualism. The term was originally used, in contrast with the term High Magick, to describe practices of traditional, basic magical practicioners such as witches, shamans, medicine men, healers, and so forth. As such, it is characterized by a simplicity both in material and theory; "low magic" spells usually involve components easily aquired by farmers or tribesmen, and are based on simple ideas that wouldn't require education or intellectual sophistication such people would lack access too. Low magick is generally thought of as being connected to "Nature," rather than the "Universe," as is the case with high magick.

Low magick may include, but is not limited to to: witchcraft, shamanism, voudo, elementalism, psychic projection/abilities
