4.0 out of 5 stars The Way of the Wiccan Warrior 19 Jan 2003
Our own "Wiccan Warrior" presents us with a book on working with energy and the elements in his own style of everyday language and well thought out examples.
The book is broken down into sections dealing with the elements and spirit. Starting with spirit, the book explores each of these elements in relation to the warrior aspect and interaction with the Wiccan path. The Wiccan Rede, the Witch's Pyramid, three-fold law and all the aspects of each are carefully explained, discussed and taken in context of being a warrior. Reading and living the precepts as laid out in this book will place you on the path of the warrior and enable you to work with the energies associated with this aspect of Wicca.
I found Kerr Cuhulain's Warrior Precepts to be a wonderful basis for this book. Adapted from various writers, philosophers and common sense, these are what constitute the ground work for being a warrior. These are excellent words to live by. Add to it Kerr Cuhulain's special ability to explain them all with practical examples and you have a great beginners book that will also speak to those who have been on this path for a while.
Kerr Cuhulain discusses tools, ritual, rites, the elements, working with energy, self discipline, martial arts, the seasons and so much more. There is a glossary of terms in the back of the book as well as an interesting bibliography and an index.
For those who are considering the path of the warrior, for those who are struggling along their chosen path already or those curious as to how Wicca and the warriors path can be melded into a singular path, or those who are just curious about energy workings, this book can explain much of what you are looking to explore. This is a great beginner's book as well as a book that those who have been on their path for a while may want to read.

Yes, martial arts is FULL CONTACT MAGIC!!! Since I come from a Chinese background, I am not familiar with Wicca because it seems to be a Western religion; but this book teaches empowerment, and it adds good stuffs to me even as a martial artist. Yay for mind power and the human spirit!

5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy sequel 30 May 2008
A great sequel/re-write to Wiccan Warrior the takes you through the warrior archetype and through the books of spirit, earth, fire and water. It helps you focus magickal thinking and focus without needing to rely on rituals and covens. It reminds you that the magickal circle is anywhere you are.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not bad.... but not good... 14 April 2003
By Zanetta Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Kerr Cuhulain's new work has me quite torn - in many areas it is much better than a great number of recent "101"-type books... but there are also a great number of contradictions, a rather dismissive attitude toward those who view a Warrior's path differently from the author, and personal views touted as Wiccan bedrock.
Kerr's writing is very conversational, and many points are illustrated with real-world examples that make it much easier to grasp Kerr's viewpoints. The material is well-organized, and well-footnoted for further reading. The Rede is discussed much more rationally than I have seen it in a majority of newer books, care is taken to distinguish Wicca from the many other Pagan religions, and he defers to Ronald Hutton on many matters of documentable history. There is a great deal of information about energy work that can be useful - particularly to folks who may not perceive energy in the visual ways most commonly referred to.
On the other hand, Kerr also exaggerates situations and paraphrases portions of his source material to make them fit his personal ideals (something he criticizes in both of his books), a number of elements are not identified as opinions of the author but are instead inaccurately presented as general views of Wicca, and several elements that do derive from Traditional Wicca are changed, but the changed form is presented as the Traditional form without any note of how or why they have been changed.
There is much here that may make this worth purchasing... but brush up on your critical reading skills beforehand, and follow up with some of the source works noted in the footnotes and bibliography.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Heart of Wiccan and Magickal practice... 3 Nov 2002
By Wednesday - Published on Amazon.com
An excellent book for beginner or seeker (experienced but still gathering). If you have been reading your way through the book lists, gleaning a bit from each, this may be the book you were looking for. Kerr Cuhulain presents (in brief) sound advice for energy developement and use, the principles of personal assessment and growth, practical Wiccan and earth Magick and many related issues. His presentation is straight forward and personable, honest, accessible and perhaps deceptively simple. Don't be mistaken, the wisdom of many practices and methods come together in this book with advice on how to cultivate it in your life. I can highly recommend this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Guidebook for the 'Wiccan Warrior' 25 Jan 2004
By Psyche - Published on Amazon.com
Kerr Cuhulain is a Wiccan police officer, based in Vancouver; he's been in the field for the past 24 years, and a Wiccan for more than thirty. I've not read his first work, The Wiccan Warrior, so I can't compare the two, but from what I've read in this book, I like his easy style, and the general applicability of what he writes.
It's written as a guide to beginning your own Book of Shadows, to be worked through as you go along. It's broken up into five parts, one for each element (Spirit, Earth, Water, Fire, Air - the reasoning behind the order explained near the end of the book). Cuhulain gives comprehensive exlpainations behind each point he brings up, which is a refreshing change, whether I agree with them or not. It shows that he has thought carefully about what he believes and I respect that.
Cuhulain states that one cannot be Wiccan if they do not adhere to the Wiccan Rede - I'm sure this will generate mixed reactions among readers. His explaination of karma isn't terrible (pg. 38), and he does acknowledge the destrutive tendancies apparently inherent in human nature and it's purpose, noting the adage 'In order to heal you have to be able to hex' (pg. 39).
He makes apt parallels between dicplies such as martial arts and magick, manipulating ki and ritual mindset, etc. bringing his style of Wicca and neo-pagan magick in line with an inspiring warrior tradition.
There are a couple minor things that are an annoyance more than serious problems. The first, incorrectly stating that Litha occurs on the autumnal equinox (page 176). The correct date is noted as being the summer solstice in the gloassary, but those new to Wicca could easily become confused by this misrepresentation. As well, the anti-drug stance he takes toward magick and ritual is disapointing, but then again, he is a cop, so it's somewhat expected.
There were a few little things that impressed well upon me, such as Cuhulain's use of CE/BCE to refer to dates rather than the Christian date system, which is often paradoxically found in some Wiccan and neo-pagan texts. As well as his uses he or she throughout the book. I love that it has footnotes, and attributes quotes and information correctly. Small things, but they make a difference.
Though this is written as a guidebook for the 'Wiccan Warrior', many concepts and ideas presented within are applicable to magickians of any style. Overall, it's an excellent start for any novice.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just didn't resonate with me 15 Jan 2008
By Kimberlee Jandreau - Published on Amazon.com
I found very little "warrior" about this book unless you mean the stealth, meditating warrior within. Don't get me wrong, there are some really, REALLY good meditation exercises, but I found this book just scratching a surface and not "meaty" enough. I also found some of his ideas hard to grasp (five sided pyramid? It took me several minutes to realize that they only way that could be done is to lop off the top so there would then be a flat part & you could have that be a side...he never explains this) and he was extremely redundant. Also, his habit of summarizing every chapter at the end was very annoying - it reminded me of textbooks from school. I really loved his first book and have great admiration & respect for Mr. Cuhulain, but this book was just not my cup of tea. Wiccan, yes...but largely I felt more into Eastern Meditation & metaphysical concepts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Realistic and pleasant to read! 24 April 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is an excellent book for both the new seeker and the battle worn spritiual warrior. I found it pleasant to read and very refreshing in its honesty and realisitic world view. Mr. Cuhulain blends his spirituality and livelhood in a way that gives credit to both his honor and understanding of both.

His ability as an author makes this book easy to read, which is one of my main complaints with many books on spirituality for seekers. LOL Its hard to learn when you have to force yourself to get to the end of the page. *blush* With this book you look forward to what is coming next. You get the sense that you are in the presence of a wise and caring friend.

Kudos to Mr. Cuhulain for providing an excellent resource to us all!
