We all have archetypes we model ourselves upon. In the Wiccan community these include Maiden, Healer, Mother, Bard, and others. In Wiccan Warrior by Kerr Cuhulain, you will learn of eight new yet traditional archetypes that Wiccans can model their lives and goals upon. You'll also find that they are completely appropriate for any person following a spiritual system.
These eight are:
The Balanced Warrior, for whom all comes from the Divine and must be treated as such.
The Creative Warrior, who masters myths and can use them to share wisdom.
The Rational Warrior, who avoids all types of fundamentalism.
The Energized Warrior, who can raise and direct energy. You'll learn to do this with toning, mantras, dance and drumming.
The Dreaming Warrior, who knows how to alter consciousness. Here you will learn meditation, concentration and breathwork.
The Magickal Warrior, who knows and can do magick.
The Ritual Warrior, who helps revitalize rituals with knowledge, understanding, energy and love.
The Initiated Warrior, who knows and shares the value of true initiation.
There are five cornerstones to the magick of being a Wiccan Warrior. These are the well-known To Dare, To Will, To Know and To Keep Silent. To these Cuhulain adds To Imagine. For "to imagine is to be able to clearly visualize your objective, to develop and use a creative imagination." The book is filled with ideas and insights that will guide you on your way to becoming a true Wiccan Warrior, a person freed from limitations.
This book is a must for Wiccan and Witches of all stripes. If one of the Warrior archetypes doesn't fit your needs, another (or several others) will. People who are not Wiccans will find much to admire and make use of, too.

But I soon found out the spiritual traditions of witchcraft stretch across the globe and throughout time. Witches were the priestesses and priests of the ancient world. They kept the mysteries of magick...

In Irish tradition, there is a wonderful story of bile, the ancient tree. It grows by the side of a sacred well, and acorns, nuts, and apples spring from its branches.
How wonderful it would be to live in the world of folk-tradition: a magical place where the world is joined-up, the sacred is apparent in the everyday world, and every living thing... read this article
