Product Description

Product Description

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book. 7 Mar 2005
By A Customer
This is a very good book, however, it is the Wiccan form of Witchcraft and not "traditional", so Ms McCoy does talk quite abit about the wiccan laws of harming no one and three fold law, although, she does have a refreshing common sense attitude to both laws that is often missing from books on Wicca.
I am not a wiccan, however, I did find this book very interesting, and the questions the author raises, the challenges she puts in front of the reader are applicable to most pagan paths. Much of what she writes has a kaballah flavour, and is just a damn good, interesting read. If you thought all Wiccans are just fluffy, love the light to be ridiculed people, then read this book and open your eyes a little more and appreciate there is a lot more depth to Wicca than you find in the basic "how to" books for novices!
As I said, this is primarily a book on advance Wicca and not really witchcraft - the author appears to use the term "witchcraft" in this situation to mean the Wiccan interpretation. However, there is still much good stuff in this book for the non-wiccan witch!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic for intermediates 17 Mar 2005
By A Customer
I loved this book though I feel it is better suited for intermediates, as there is nothing "new" in this for advanced witches. However, I enjoyed this book's sensible approach and it was helpful to be reminded of certain ideas/topics that can easily be forgotten about when you have chosen a particular path or area of expertise. Having read several of her other books this is a firm favourite.

5.0 out of 5 stars am i the first to rate/review this book!!!!???? 28 Mar 2004
By A Customer
This is a really good book. If you've been studying witchraft for a few years and want to learn more without having to listen to someone ramble on and on about why and how....this is the book for you. Iftexplores all sorts of magic from astral projection to drawing down the moon. Edian Mcoy is a really expressive writer and makes her books about topics that are easily made boring, really interesting. I give this book a nine out of ten or a four and a half out of five (it would have been better colour illustrated but Edian Mcoy does a pretty decent description) so.................. hurry up, just buy the book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Trip down memory lane 1 Nov 2004
By Martha Karnes - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Usually, I find Edain McCoy's books interesting and full of helpful information. This one, however,fell flat. It is more like a checklist of what the advanced Witch should know and what to consider exploring next. She was very thorough in relating what she considered necessary knowledge for beginning, intermediary, and advanced Witches. One must remember,however, that this is her opinion. Some people consider astral travel intermediate and advanced level practice while others agree with Ms. McCoy and teach it at the beginning.

There were a couple of parts worthy of her name on the cover and those were the questions she asked of advanced Witches and the Dark Night of the Soul material.

The bibliography would have been more helpful if it had been divided or labeled by subject matter.

She mentions a few times in the book that she has been ill. I hope she takes time to rest and regain her strength and write some indepth advanced Witchcraft books.

1.0 out of 5 stars HATED it 26 Dec 2005
By Jeanette Stingley - Published on
Advanced Witchcraft my foot. I was so tired of reading "WHen you began your journey, you blah blah blah" This book is basically a checklist of what someone should know to be labeled as an "advanced practioner" by the author. WHen I saw the title, I was excited. I thought finally something new for us who have been practicing for a long time to chew on. I read about half way through and took it back to the store demanding a refund. Ms. McCoy was a good author with several of her first books. I feel she is becoming like Silver Ravenwolf and pumping out books because she has a famous name in the community and can make money by her name alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Answered All My Inner-Questions ! 29 May 2004
By Eva Allison - Published on
Finally someone has produced a book about advanced Witchcraft that is not just another spellbook with more complex rituals and tools. Edain McCoy's gem connected with me on a soul level and addressed many of the issues and questions that had been dancing around my head for several years. When I read Edain's words I actually found myself shouting YES! THAT'S EXACTLY IT!!! When you reach a fork in your path of the Craft and aren't sure what should come next read this book. You'll never be sorry. I think I will still be reading it ten years from now or whenever I need some advanced direction.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money 13 Mar 2008
By Azelma - Published on
"Hooray!" thinks the reader. "Finally something written beyond the "Witchcraft 101" level!"

I am sorry to disappoint the reader, but "Advanced Witchcraft" isn't.

There is very little of actual worth in this book. Most of it has nothing to do with witchcraft at all and is more like the watered-down Neo-Wicca that gets churned out by authors all too often these days.

You would think, then, that changing the title to "Advanced Wicca" might make the content within more relevant. Alas no. There's nothing advanced here. The book is basically a list of requirements the author believes necessary to define oneself as an "advanced witch". As very few of these requirements have much to do with witchcraft, and as few of them are particularly advanced, one can only imagine that McCoy wrote this book so that she could refer to herself as an advanced witch.

Save your money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent content and well written. 4 Aug 2004
By T. Tyne - Published on
While this is a book meant for the advanced, there are quite a few very good points made that should be covered in Wicca 101 books which are sadly left out.

I really like how the book is laid out with the chapters corresponding to the various elements. A nice touch I have not come across in other books.

The only reason I did not give this book a 5 is because I thought some of the subject matter verged on "how to", which detracted from the very good (and wise) advice given and points made about BEING an advanced Witch.

This author really gained my respect by what she says in the second paragraph of the afterward. It certainly differentiates her from the other authors of the Llewelly stable that are coming under sharp criticism.
