Many people have advised me to read this witches book of shadows, saying I will never feel the same about my religion again. So I did. As soon as I opened the book I could feel the originality streaming out of it as power streams out of the athame.
It is divided into sections, which is especially useful to the beginning wiccans. Every exercise, be it balancing your chi or focusing your mind on akasha, is divided into weeks, to complete weekly. It was especially useful to me.
My favourite part is when Dorothy Morrison explains how to make your own wand.
A perfect read for the beginner.
