Critic Reviews

"Quite entertaining, as much for the armchair enthusiast as for the practicing occultist." (Marion Zimmer Bradley, author of The Mists of Avalon)

SO INSIGHTFUL!!!

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.

very good overview of Wicca

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

Get the book too

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.

Very informative but can be boring

I think this book was very informative but also kind of boring at times. Raymond tends to be kind of complicated cause he is much for doing your athames etc by your own. Can be a. It discouraging for those who do not have blacksmith nearby or cannot do your own knife anyway. Otherwise it is a very good book.

As a non-witch, this book was an excellent intro

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.

great for beginners

great book for a beginner with minimal personal opinion concerning certain types of magick, said personal opinions stated are useful for the beginner to keep them cautious though, which in turn is for the greater good for them, so this ceremonial magician still approves and would recommend this book to any beginner

the perfect guide

this is by far the most in-depth book on the old religion that I have read so far. Raymond Buckland does an amazing job at going into detail on every subject imaginable in this book which makes it the perfect go to guide for anyone who is either doing research on the different sects of the religion or practicing the religion itself. what I most enjoyed about this book was flow of chapter and that everything was described with step by step instructions. The more complex rituals were described in a way that you can understand it easily and do it correctly. There is so much information and background in every topic which is great so at least you are taught the meanings and reasoning behind what you are learning. Raymond Buckland also wrote several other books which I will also read; he was a great man and will be missed. rest in peace, brother, in love and light. Blessed Be!
