"Quite entertaining, as much for the armchair enthusiast as for the practicing occultist." (Marion Zimmer Bradley, author of The Mists of Avalon)
This was exactly what I wanted.This book was very thorough, very pleasant to listen to, and I feel like I can have a conversation with someone about Wicca and know what I'm talking about. I think it's beautiful and one of the most reasonable religions I've read up on so far. I feel like I'm more whole having learned about it.
Loved the book, loved the writer, loved the narrator. Very organized, straight forward way to learn about Wicca whether you are seeking to practice or simply understand. I'm very grateful for having had the opportunity to listen.
We are Bibliophiles. Reading is so much a part of who we are. We love to learn and stretch our imaginations...From classic works to fantasy.
this book does more than go through the various traditions of Wicca. it go through the foundation the most forms of magick. Edgar Balaji the basics of Tarot and other forms of divination meditation ritual Construction spell casting and so much more even if you're not into Wicca Orem burgeoning left hand path practitioner like myself this book is a must-read I recommend that you get the PDF that you can download after having purchased this audiobook without it you miss 90% of books value. after you read the audio book if you have not already purchased the tactile make sure you own it read it study it highlight it annotated it and make this book and all it contains part of your life and part of your soul it will help you no matter what path you walk. I'm a firm believer an intensive study along with unbridled emotional content the two in balance but he had both raging and this book gave me and what I found is severely lacking from the magickvLibrary within Audible
Great book with tons of information. A must read for anyone with an interest in pagan religion. I plan to get more of the books from this author.
This book gives you an excellent introduction into the craft, divination, magic, crystals, etc. if you want a place to start in your journey, this is a great place to start. If you want to understand what your Wicca friends and family really believe this is the book . Clear, detailed , but in no way exhaustive. Gives you the information you need without over burdening You. I am not a witch; nor do I intend to become one. However, I believe in magik, I believe in the gods and goddesses. So that's where I'm coming from.
This book is a great great source of information on witchcraft. I recommend this book to anyone seeking the truth.
The print book is better because I like to see things myself. Some of the stuff in here is a little crazy like forging your own knife. But it has a lot of good useful information.
If you are looking for a book on Wicca, then you can't go wrong with this classic text. But for those of us who aren't into the modern perversions of the craft, there are better options out there.
I am extremely dyslexic and if it was not for audio books I probably would never read. I travel a lot and love to have a audio book playing
It was full of information and parts are hard to follow without the book in front of you but I know I would have never read it through without the audio book
It is not that kind of book it is a instruction book
This is the biggest load of bs ever published. So not publishing it would make me give it 5 stars
Who knows? I have a wide variety of interests.
N/A it is not a story.
Cut the entire book out and maybe revise the herb lore part to publish
What a crock. I have had an interest in nature based religions for a couple of years. I have done a good bit of research for myself. At first I thought this must have been written as a joke. I kept on listening and realized (sadly) that this guy was deadly serious about this stuff. Note: If I ever see somebody prancing around naked under the moon with a metal mixing bowl with glued on horns tied their head, I will laugh myself to death. This is the most idiotic book I've ever listened to. The guy that wrote this was a pervert. This is not a book about nature based faith. This is a book about weird made up rituals and pomp and ceremony. He writes an extensive section on how to make your own knife from scratch (this is really important and very easy to do according to "Uncle Bucky") Sure, because I keep an anvil,tongs and hammers in my kitchen for just such occassions! There is a lot of instruction on the proper style and color of robes to wear and detailed instructions on various complicated rituals. I fail to see what blindfolding and tying up a person naked then rubbing a knife over their body has to do with nature or spirituality (illustrations on how to tie up a naked person provided on the website).I guess this book has some value -as entertainment. The narrator does a good job and the herb lore is moderately interesting.
