Rae Beth, an experienced and wise hedge witch (solitary practitioner), writes to Tessa and Glyn, two people interested in understanding and possibly beginning a Wiccan lifestyle. In a very personalized and collaborative way, her letters coach both Tessa and Glyn through an entire year, covering their questions, the eight Sabbats, full moon ceremonies, initiation, tools for the practice, and Wiccan history in Part I. In Part II, Rae Beth continues to coach Tessa in trance work providing additional support in letters for an additional six months. Her letters are practical, heart-felt, offer the nuts and bolts, and make the practice accessible. Rae Beth is not caught up in faddish trappings; she is authentic, dedicated, and seriously devoted to giving her readers a solid understanding and foundation. I recommend reading the book at least twice: once for a general understanding; the second time, getting to a deeper level by reading the book throughout the year during the same times the letters are written, journaling while you read. I highly recommend The Wiccan Path to readers who live in the Northern Hemisphere.
