5.0 out of 5 stars The Original is still the Best!!!,, 27 Sept. 2005
This review is from: Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner (Paperback)
When someone says "Wicca" there are probably two names that come immediately to mind. One is Gerald Gardner, the man who brought together the magic and the spirituality and gave this new religion based on the old religions the name we know today.
The second name that comes to mind is Scott Cunningham. This gentleman brought Wicca out of the broom closet and gave it to the masses with one incredible book: Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner.
The book is divided into three sections, covering Theory, Practice and a Book of Shadows. The sections follow logical progressions and contain much actual working material. Even the Theory portion contains information that can be easily worked into everyday practice.
I know many solitaries who have hand written many short notes from this Book of Shadows into their own Books of Shadow, to be treasured and meditated upon many, many times. There is much here in the way of instructions and food for thought. There are Scott's personal chants, spells, recipes, rituals to build on and celebrations to start you off. There is a small herbal guide, a stone and crystal guide, some symbols and signs you may want to paint on your tools or include on your altar or write in your own Book of Shadows. There is also a basic explanation of Runes and some spells and chants.
This is THE handbook that started it all. The solitary practitioner, in my experience, makes up the majority of Wiccan Practitioners today and this is the book that many of them keep on their altar, their night stand or in their bag. It is still as indispensable today as it was when Scott wrote it in 1988. And I have recommended it again and again as the best first book a solitary practitioner could buy when they take their first steps on the Wiccan Path. boudica
