The aim of this book is to help people who find themselves training with a witch coven or just considering it. The author concentrates on his experiences, rather than trying to pad out those experiences witha lot of general information on Wicca. There are already enough books on the market that provide the basics of Wiccan belief. This book opens a window into the process of training with a coven, both for the prospective trainees and for all those covens out there who may benefit from seeing things from the other side. All initiates were seekers once, maybe this book can help create a memory bridge back to what it was like to be a Wiccan trainee and put up a few signposts as to what may benefit future trainees. Surely all coven-training experience will be different - as different and varied as covens themslves, but maybe there is a thread of emotion and personal growth that we all experience as we undergo this journey. Maybe we all share similar uncertainties. You may find yourself uncertain regarding that ultimate question of initiation. If such uncertainties are shared between seekers such as the author, then maybe the knowledge of the shared weight will lighten the load a little.

I just finishing devouring your book. And I say devouring since I've been unable to stop until finishing it after reading the first pages -though I had to have some sleep at night in the middle.
The title of 'Book of Mirrors' is, indeed, very appropriate, not just for it being the usual title given to that kind of book, but also for the fact that your book acts as an actual mirror; or at least, that's how it has been for me, and maybe has already been for others too. And, for sure, it will be for others in the future.
Conceiving an idea like this is awesome - something new, and needed. But it wouldn't have been the same if you had changed the way it was written, or it's honesty. In fact, it would have been a completely different book. Another book of how wonderful being a Wicca is. Another book not worth to spend the money on - at least in the current economical situation. A book that wouldn't have left me looking at it, once I finished it, just for a while, wondering what just happened.
It is ironic how the same 'synchronization' that you talk about in the book when performing a concrete exercise or ritual with other people and having some similar results, can be applied to the path of the seekers. One can find himself reflected in small and, at first sight, meaningless details like 'not wanting to give the impression that you want to overshadow your girlfriend or even let them think you are with her just for the contact'! Though it is even worse when you have a 'smart mind' that puzzles you and it makes you think if caring about that doesn't mean that you are actually doing it!Read more ›
What `The Book of Mirrors' actually does is present the road to initiation in a very honest, relatable way. I honestly can't see a way in which 'The Book of Mirrors', won't become essential reading for every would-be initiate and coven leader.
I picked up this book on a whim because I've been into Wicca for a while and saw it in a shop and thought it sounded quite different. Well, it is definitely different! It is easily the best, most informative book on Wicca that I have ever read!
Okay, it doesn't mess around with all the basics of belief like so many other Wiccan books do, but instead it goes right into what it really means to pursue Wicca and become a Wiccan.
I honestly can't recommend this book enough! Everyone interested in Wicca should read this book!
