Starred Review"In her first book-length work, Sabin presents a first-rate, fresh, and thorough addition to the burgeoning field of earth-based spiritual practice volumes...written in a light, informative style that magically mines depth, breadth and brevity."--Publishers Weekly, starred review



First-time author Sabin offers a practical and cohesive look at the earth-centered religion of Wicca, offering crisp definitions of what the elements of Wicca practice are (energy, visualization, meditation) and, as important, what they are not (satanic worship, hex making, broom flying).
Her explanations of the ethics, philosophy, tools, and types of Wicca reveal a religion that is created by its practitioners as a "path to self-empowerment" through the use of earth-based imagery, the study of deities, and the employment of elemental energies. Readers are treated to a nifty exploration of Wicca's mystical aspects that ties together correspondences, discusses the various deities, dispels myths, and provides historical context for many Wiccan traditions. Sabin's chapter on the eight sabbats (holidays timed with certain celestial points of the year) is especially informative. Another highlight and distinction from other beginner books is a detailed list of the various Wiccan sects and their unique practices. Highly recommended for all public libraries.--Library Journal



"Practicality and common sense are the keys to Ms. Sabin's approach...Her presentation is fair and balanced showing both sides of issues such as eclectic versus traditional (easy to do as she has stood on both sides); public versus private (ditto); and solitary versus group (again, ditto).  This book is one that I am proud to recommend to the new seekers out there.Overall, this is an excellent book; one of the best in recent memory."--Mike Gleason

However, these wonderful creatures can provide us with a simple yet powerful way to stay in tune with the natural world and its seasonal markers. In addition to maintaining this connection, birds can help us access... read this article
