Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wiccan yes, Witchcraft no If you looking for a book on Wiccan this is one. It's a very strict, dogmatic book. She believes in training to the hilt, and if you don't agree completely that wiccans, which she calls witches, are born not made, then don't even pick it up. If you're look for Traditional Witchcraft, not Wiccacraft this is not the book for you. I would suggest you keep looking.

From the Jacket

A witch, like the Earth, can be both immeasurably ancient and forever young

A witch realizes certain powers...represents, rather than worships them...invokes them; fuses with them, emotes and lives them; recognizes them in the vast forces of nature and beyond.

This comprehensive manual sets forth the tenets of Witchcraft, and explains in depth why and how magic works. It includes tried and true methods for developing the magical will, along with religious training, ritual observances, and spellcrafting techniques. Witchcraft: Theory and Practice also:
-- Describes unique practices such as fith-fathing, fetching, shapeshifting, and glamouring
-- Tells how to identify and interpret omens and portents
-- Includes instructions on astral travel, cleansings, banishings, and how to make something invisible
-- Offers a guided ritual for self-initiation

All things come full circle -- reclaim the ancient power that sings within your blood through sacred ritual to the Earth and Moon and Sun and Stars.

About the Author

Ly (pronounced lî) de Angeles was first published in 1987, and she has had six books released worldwide to date. She has an international reputation as a psychic, teaches and lectures on many associated subjects, is an exponent of several martial arts and, currently, is an accredited Sensei in the art of Iaido - the Japanese art of the sword.

Ly’s main area of study over the past twenty years has been the history of the usurpation of indigenous people through invasion and subsequent colonization (mainly since the Roman Empire) and the history and mythology of Ireland and Britain in particular. She is known to be very outspoken on matters pertaining to the sustainability and guardianship of Earth and the rights of all species to self-determination.

Ly has three adult children and a strong magical clan. She has lived in Byron Bay, Australia for the past 14 years. An initiated witch for over thirty years, she is High Priestess of the Coven of WildWood Gate.
