#BookReview: Teaching Witchcraft: A Guide for Students & Teachers of Wicca by Miles Batty , Jamie Hendrickx (Foreword) @LlewellynBooks

Synopsis: A Lost Underground Classic for Seekers and Instructors of the Craft

Teaching Witchcraft is written for today's practitioners, both in coven groups and solitary study. Featuring more than thirty-five lessons that reflect current cultural perspectives and practices in the Wiccan community, this resource includes contemporary lesson guides and exam questions, as well as an emphasis on inclusivity.

Miles Batty presents an extensive variety of topics, including spellcasting, ritual construction and procedures, the Wheel of the Year, the principles of Wiccan belief, and the four cornerstones of magick. You'll start with the fundamentals and progress through the Craft's many facets, from its history and tools to divination and etiquette. This step-by-step-guide also covers the faces of the goddess, sexuality in Witchcraft, correspondences, and magickal ethics. With lessons and study questions for every level of student, this is the essential resource for learning and teaching Witchcraft.


Rating: 4 Stars
My Review: This was a wonderful all in one book for those who are starting out or wanting to teach the craft to others.  I think this author would be great at developing a collection of books on each year of learning the craft.  I loved this and can not wait to get a print copy of it.
