One of the most important advances in Wicca over the last several years is the realization that you don't need to be part of a coven to do magic or worship. A major force in this change was Scott Cunningham, who single-handedly introduced hundreds of thousands of people to Wicca with his caring, gentle books.
In Living Wicca (the sequel to Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner), Scott takes readers to a new level of solitary practice. It is a step-by-step guide for those who have made the conscious decision to bring Wiccan spirituality into their everyday lives. It will show you how to create your own rituals and symbols, develop your own book of shadows, and even become your own high priest or priestess.
Living Wicca helps solitary practitioners blaze their own spiritual paths-and become their own high priests and priestesses. Living Wicca takes a philosophical look at the questions, practices, and differences within Witchcraft. It explores tools, magical names, initiation, the Mysteries, 120 Wiccan symbols, and the importance of secrecy in your practice. Learn how to develop a prayerful attitude, make offerings to the gods, and perform Wiccan rites when ill, away from home, or in emergencies. If you work alone, this book is a must.
