~*our cosy little circle of book obsessed souls*~
I've been in the mood for pagan books after a few years break but as I've read dozens of books with all the basic things like sabbaths, the history of the craft, god & goddess and how to visualize and do rituals I wanted to read something that goes a bit deeper. I've had this book in my shelf for a few years but never really felt like reading it before.
Even if it is titled Advanced wicca it is quite simple and refers to many basic skills mostly shamanistic like shape shiftingm trance and dream working as well as how to work in the community, start a group, coven or give lectures.
All in all it was a nice book to read but nothing special. It gives a view to the life of an adept but in a rather basic level. In some of the exercizes it describes I got a very strong feeling to question why. I think that many wicca/pagan books lack deeper insights and concentrate so much on outer things. Of course the inner things are more individual and private but without the change that takes place within there is no much point in being a witch (IMHO).
