The Deep Heart of Witchcraft and this book is just as good.
Teen Spirit Wicca by David Salisbury
Although aimed at teenagers wanting to learn about Wicca this book would work well for all ages and anyone coming to the Craft.
Covering the history (but totally NOT in a boring history lesson way!) including mention of those people that laid the foundations of modern witchcraft and a beautifully written creation myth.
This book covers all the basics and then some - deities, Wiccan practice, Sabbats, ritual, tools, magick and daily practive to name but a few of the chapters.
Very comprehensive and as I would expect from David exceptionally well written.
Nature-based practices like Wicca and Witchcraft are exploding in popularity all over the world. The days of old dudes spoon-feeding us religion from a pulpit are giving way to the age of information and active learning. Young people are growing up with an understanding of how to connect with the divine on their own terms. If you’re a teenager today, you’re in a great position to seek out spiritual teachings that are more widely accessible than ever before. Wicca is one of those teachings.
With this practical guide, you’ll get the lowdown on what Wiccans believe and practice, and how to become one yourself. Some of the information on the Craft of the Wise can seem vast, overwhelming, and even a little boring. But have no fear! Teen Spirit Wicca will cut to the chase and give you just what you need to start practicing the Craft and living your life as a Wiccan today.
