It was okay, May 19 2006
This was one of the first books I read when exploring the pagan/wiccan path. I didn't find her frightful but nor did I find her believeable on some topics. I kept seeking through meditation and other books and by talking to people until I found those who simply told it like it is, the good and the bad. It was from my own research that assisted me in making the decision to leave my Christian life behind and become a witch.
What the author fails to mention in this book, is that to learn all of the Wiccan ways, what it entails to be Wiccan/pagan/Witch, it will take many lifetimes as we are learning as we go by what our instincts tell us is the truth and not what one author puts forth as truth. We have to stop and listen to the earth, the water, the air and the sun for they will direct us. The moon and the sun will give us energy and love us. We must adore each other and treat each other with respect.
I am a witch and I won't put my head in the sand but neither will I shove it in another religons face. This is not right and I sincerely abide by the "harm none" rule, one which I believe Ms Ravenwolf needs a refresher course in.
Blessed be to all.
