1 Review

In the beginning everything is fresh and new. Learning how to cast a circle, work magick, compile a Book of Shadows, and honor the God and Goddess on esbats and sabbats can be exhilarating. But once you've mastered the basics of Witchcraft comes the real challenge of living your faith every moment of every day. Living as a Witch is knowing that you are the magick.

Advanced Witchcraft doesn't contain any “Wicca 101” information—it assumes that you're already familiar with the nuts and bolts of the Craft. Instead, this book challenges you to think critically about your beliefs and practices, what they mean to you, how they've changed, and where you're going. Along the way you'll also learn many techniques for intermediate and advanced Witches, including:

—Meeting your shadow
—Advanced warding and psychic self-defense
—Power animals, familiars, and shapeshifters
—Working the labyrinth and the maze
—Advanced tree spirituality
—Advanced augury and divination
—Magick and ritual using the fine arts of storytelling, dance, music, art, and drama
—The art of Wishcraft
—Spirits and lost souls
—Banishing and closing portals
—The healing arts

Har nylig kjøpt denne boken. Opplever den som noe dogmatisk, -den er veldig tilpasset covens slik forfatteren kjenner dem. Som selv-initiert opplever jeg at en del av hennes beskrivelser av arbeid man er pålagt av sine læremestere litt irrelevant. Da forfatteren selv er self-initiated mener jeg hun burde lagt mindre vekt på den biten. Spesielt når hun skriver boken for folk som IKKE har tilgang på et coven.
Jeg kjøpte boken for å lære mer om hvordan jeg kan beskytte med mot uønskede syn og inntrykk. Uønsket innsikt i andres liv, for å være mer konkret. Tiden og sidene vil vise om boken vil lære meg det.

About the author (2004)

Edain became a self-initiated Witch in 1981 and has been an active part of the Pagan community since her formal initiation into a large San Antonio coven in 1983. nbsp;Edain has researched alternative spiritualities since her teens, when she was first introduced to Kaballah, or Jewish mysticism. nbsp;Since that time, she has studied a variety of magickal paths including Celtic, Appalachian folk magick, and Curanderismo, a Mexican-American folk tradition. nbsp;Today, Edain is part of the Wittan Irish Pagan tradition, where she is a priestess of Brighid and an elder. nbsp; An alumnus of the University of Texas with a BA in history, she is affiliated with several professional writer's organizations and occasionally presents workshops on magickal topics or works individually with students who wish to study Witchcraft. This former woodwind player for the Lynchburg (VA) Symphony claims both the infamous feuding McCoy family of Kentucky and Sir Roger Williams, the seventeeth-century religious dissenter, as branches on her ethnically diverse family tree. nbsp;In her "real life," Edain works as a licensed stockbroker. Edain is the author of fifteen books, including Bewitchments; Enchantments; and her most recent release, Ostara: Customs, Spells & Rituals for the Rites of Spring.
