5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Solitary Wiccan Handbook, 10 Nov. 2005
This review is from: Solitary Wicca for Life: A Complete Guide to Mastering the Craft on Your Own (Paperback)
I read lots of Wicca 101 books, especially those that seem to be aimed at the Solitary Practitioner. With many of them, I will find some points that I think the average solitary practitioner may relate to, or that someone, somewhere, will relate to. Many times, however, the material does not "click" with my own personal beliefs, or they do not take the "Traditional Path" when it comes to Wicca, but rather they are "Wiccanish". This is OK for someone else, but not necessarily for me. But I do not judge by my standards alone, but rather the viewpoint that everyone needs material that will relate to them personally.
Reading this book, however, there was more material here that I found I agreed with, related to and found to be "Traditional" with a Solitary spin than other books of this kind. And this, to me, was a big plus.
Ms. Murphy-Hiscock has taken Wicca back to the roots and explores adaptation to the Solitary way of practice. This is a Wicca 101 book, so it makes a good first handbook for the average new Solitary Practitioner and yet, it provides some material that the advanced practitioner may want to review because of its accuracy, to augment their Wiccan practice, to add elements of the Traditional or just because it is well written and has much to ponder and contemplate.
This book approaches the Solitary Wiccan Practitioner as a knowledgeable and intelligent person who knows what they want, what they want to achieve, and gives them a good working handbook to make the connection with Deity that most are looking for.
I would recommend that even if you have a working handbook you love dearly, you may want to augment it with a copy of this work. There is a lot to absorb here, there is some good clarification of what has become misunderstood or poorly interpreted, and Ms. Murphy-Hiscock provides some new material for you to chew over and absorb. Again, it will not be for everyone, but I found that much of the material related to me personally and I appreciated that. This is a work that will compliment your already working knowledge as well as introduce the seeker to some solid concepts and traditional approaches to the Solitary Wiccan Practice. boudica
