The coven section dealing with how to form one and initiation are absolutely a must for anyone trying to start their own coven. Unlike the corny goody good magick and goddess worship femmenist crap found in most wicca books this book is about TRUE authentic Witchcraft or the Craft of Witches not to be confused with Wicca a Neo-Pagan religion founded by Gerald Gardner which is based on Goddess worship. Witchcraft is not a religion but an art or craft. It is the art of causing changes to occur in comformity with will. The art of bending or shaping your life, futu! ! re, events, etc. You can be a witch and not necessariy be wiccan. This book is a must for anyone interested in TRUE Witchcraft, but I must say it is not for beginners, faint of heart or wiccans. I also recommend Huson's "Mastering Herbalism" which I believe is currently out of print. Good fortune and much power to you all.
In the circle of firelight which we are pleased to call an enlightened scientific civilization, we usually feel secure in the knowledge that most of our worst childhood terrors and nightmares were merely fantasy. But if and when the firelight happens to dim, at those times when the unknown presses hard upon us, in the presence of death or insanity or insurmountable calamity, we again know instinctively that science is ultimately irrelevant, and we once again experience the old childhood terrors. We are still powerless in the face of overmastering fate. Science still completely fails to come to grips with that outer darkness beyond the flickering ring of light.
Whether you believe the Christian bugaboos and fear to lose your soul in return for the powers or, like us, consider the gamble well spent, is up to you. Should you decide the former, then read no further. The aim of this book is solely to teach you the first steps to becoming a witch or warlock. But remember, the choice was yours. We take no responsibility for the results you may achieve, good or bad. Witchcraft is witchcraft. The seeds of success or destruction lie within you and you alone. Night is jealous of her secrets and guards them in many ways but those who succeed in wooing her may reap many rewards. On the other hand, those who timidly shun the darkness win temporary respite only, until such a time as the darkness itself reaches out and takes them when they are least forearmed.
