4.0 out of 5 stars A good overview 22 Dec 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A good introduction into various methods of spirit communication. None of the areas covered are explored in great detail but a nice read as an overview of the subject or for the novice looking to find the method that best suits them.

2.0 out of 5 stars Catalogue of divination methods 2 Nov 2011
By lsur
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was disappointed by this. I had hoped for a fuller explanation of the seance method but it is basically just a listing of divination methods ranging from ouija boards and pendulums to tarot and runes. I actually sent it back for a refund as it was pretty shallow, a page or two on each topic and introductory at best. Buckland is famous for his 1970s works on witchcraft, worth a look if that's your direction, but this seems to be a quickly produced sparetime effort. The pretty cover is the best thing about it, if that's not too harsh.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical, sensible, down to earth 18 May 2011
By David Dellman - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Buckland has been writing for a long time. His contributions have been significant but among his many works this one is a gem. I love the vintage packaging - I'm a sucker for a great cover and book design but this book would be of tremendous value even if it came as a bare manuscript. I found his instructions clear, easy to follow and understand. I'm not a "tools" type of person myself but I do use them from time to time and this book added considerably to my appreciation of them. An experienced, seasoned medium may not enjoy the book as much as a novice but I would recommend it to anyone regardless of the person's level of experience because it is a valuable reference work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buckland Does it Again! 8 Aug 2011
By Sheri Newton - Published on
Solitary Séance by Raymond Buckland is a guide to help others communicate with spirits on their own. The various types of communication tools mentioned are just a guide and gives basic information for the main methods used in spirit communication.

Solitary Séance is a book about communicating with spirits. Buckland doesn't believe that you have to go through a medium to do it, and also shares a little secret - everyone can do this!

Each of the types of communication methods discussed is given a basic bare bones type of an intro but that is all that really needed to be included in this book. If someone tries something and they don't like it or don't find that type of method useful, they can just move on to the next and try it. If they happen to find a few ways to communicate with spirits that they really like, there are plenty of other books available that they could research that specific topic further.

I've read quite a few books that have mentioned all of the methods described in this book with the exception of one. Dominoes. I never knew that it was possible to use Dominoes similar to how Tarot cards are used. Very interesting!

Overall, I found the book to contain quite a good amount of information without going into too much detail in any of the areas. I think that this would be a fantastic book for those who are just starting out in this area to read to help them further their journey into communicating with spirits. If you are like me and have read up on the topic, you may be surprised to find things you didn't know before too. I highly recommend it.

* Thank you to the publisher of Solitary Séance, Llewllyn, for providing me with a copy of this book for review. All opinions expressed are my own.

3.0 out of 5 stars A quick little read 20 April 2012
By NateMonroe - Published on
This book just touches the surface of Spiritualism and spirit communication. Although there are some good points, the book pretty much seemed stretched out to make it appear like there was more in it. Several of the chapters are more glossaries for dreams and Spiritualism.

There are fact postings throughout in a a large frame. I actually read this book in about an hour and a half. I expected a larger book, but when my copy came in the mail, I was surprised how tiny the actual book is. There's just not much to it.

If it's just a phase of curiosity you're are going through, get the book. But if you want something more in depth about Spiritualism and communication...look elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars great introductory 3 Mar 2012
By tarotqueen - Published on
This is good for the introduction of spirit comunications. I like how the book gets into the big question is there any danger? and constructing the egg of protection right a way. So many pepole have had problems with not knowing enough about protecton . I also like the chapter on tarot. It was a big question I often asked myself how can I use the tarot If i am in a haunted location. That chapter offers me some advice for useing one of my favorite tools should I happen to buy a haunted house or something.
