The book opens with a "Note to Traditional Wiccans". His original book, published in 1988, seemed to threaten many Traditionalists. This book, published in 1996, has a note to let them know that he never intended to attack their ideas or ideals, but rather he meant his books to be general access to those who are not part of Traditions, covens or to those who do not have access to traditional training.
This book is broken into three sections; learning, practice and your own tradition. Scott advances the solitary path and gives guidance to those who want to pursue their spirituality even further.
Scott carefully goes over these elements, showing where you can pull things to make the traditions specifically yours, yet having it remain always identifiable as Wicca. Discussions include Deity Concepts, tools, ritual designs, beliefs and rules. Some of these sections include Suggested Reading lists, or tables of correspondences to aid you in your choices. There is further discussion on Wiccan Symbols, Books of Shadow, and passing on your tradition. There is also a chapter on Living Wicca; walking the walk as well as talking the talk. The book concludes with a glossary and a bibliography.
What Scott Cunningham started to do in his first book is continued in this second. The path of the Solitary Practitioner, in the Tradition of Scott Cunningham, is developed even further, giving the practitioner more food for thought, more direction and additional instruction in how to live as a Wiccan in today's world. The book is a good follow up to the first and is again a book that has been lovingly dog-eared and held dear by those who follow the Solitary path. boudica
Do we really need a whole chapter discussing whether or not we should practice ritual when we're bedridden with illness? Apparently this subject is so important it deserves a whole chapter, I would have thought common sense would have answered it.
This book is also characteristically well padded out with 26 pages of oversized drawings of Scott's symbol ideas, such as a water drop for water, or a heart shape for love & a candle for....a candle! Is this really necessary information? I think not.
Now you have all this important information you're supposedly ready to start your own tradition! Step one of course is choosing your tools, but first you must find out that "the cup holds wine", "incense is burned in the censer" & that the "bell is rung at certain points", heavy stuff!
Ritual design follows & armed with the knowledge that red & black are good colours for Samhain and that pomegranates are particularly seasonal, you can construct your Sabbats. It apparently doesn't matter that you know practically nothing of the meanings behind them, just so long as your colours are right.
Although the blurb promises that by reading this book you will "add depth & great spiritual meaning to your rituals through the knowledge of the Wiccan mysteries (those are covered in 4 pages), I can't see that the suggestion of "eating bread at Lughnassadh" particularly fulfills that vow.Read more ›
I love everything EVER done my Scott Cunningham and he explains stuff so well and simply and - just LOVE IT.
Easy book to read - gets me excited every time I open it. Really good if you are showing someone how to start out in Wicca as well xxx
