Witchcraft And Wicca Books Collection #2

Witchcraft And Wicca Books Collection #2
On this page you can download #2 part (144) of witchcraft and wicca books in one zip archive or get them on CD.

I have put together a collection of Wicca and Witchcraft books by some of my favorite Wiccan authors. These books are great for someone that wants to learn more about Wicca in the hopes of studying this often misunderstood religion or to understand a Wiccan friend or loved one. Like all religions, Wicca has good points and bad points. It can be used for good or misused for bad. The internet is full of a lot of misinformation on Wicca. I offer these Wicca and Witchcraft books to help you gain accurate information by qualified teachers of the craft. I want you to not only learn the facts but also learn how to use Wicca in a positive way to empower yourself to create the life in which you have always dreamed.

If you've decided you want to learn about Wicca, what should you read? After all, there are literally thousands of books on the subject -- some good, others not so much. This list features books that every Wiccan should have on their shelves. A few are historical, a few more focus on actual Wiccan practice, but they're all worth reading more than once.

Some books in this collection are either rare or hard to find. They are essentially books of powerful magic spells from either unusual or lost sources. Some of these books contain serious spells which should be used carefully and judiciously. The user of these spells assumes all responsibility for the outcomes.

On Cursing by Phil Hineby Phil Hine - a presentation made at UKAOS 1992. People tend to view Cursing in the same way that they view masturbation.
