Body, Mind, Spirit / Wicca / Spells
Your Guide to the Craft of the Wise
Modern Wicca is a vibrant, uplifting nature religion practiced by hundreds of thousands of people in the United States alone. But wearing “witchy” jewelry and casting a few spells does not make one a witch, for Wicca is a lifestyle and those who walk its path have solemnly dedicated themselves to the service of the Goddess and the God.
Wiccan Beliefs & Practices was written for the Solitary witch or nontraditional small Coven. Written by a Wiccan High Priest, Wiccan Beliefs & Practices includes crucial information not found in other introductory Wiccan books, including:
- Ethics of a witch, including the Code of Chivalry
- How to write and develop your own spells and rituals
- The physically challenged witch
- Out of the broom closet: is it right for you?
- Know your rights: the legal protection of Wicca as a legitimate religion
Author Gary Cantrell speaks from personal experience with Wiccans of all ages and degrees of physical ability, bringing you an earnest examination of modern Wiccan beliefs and a practical guide to the Craft of the Wise.
