Publisher's Summary

Nature's miraculous energy - the same energy that turns the ocean's tides - is all around us. What if you could bring that energy more fully into your life? To hear the voice of trees, and know the radiant power of the stars? The great power of transformation in nature - in Wicca what is called "The Goddess" - can help you make transitions in your own life, connect more deeply with your own inner power, and bring healing to yourself, your community, and the world around us. In The Beginner's Guide to Wicca, Starhawk invites you to look at life from the perspective of this earth-based tradition that draws from wisdom and nature. Take a journey around the magic circle of the elements, the seasons, the moon, and the cycles of birth, growth, death, and rebirth that are the essence of this ancient tradition.

Good place to begin

I read this in an unabridged CD format. Starhawk narrates the audiobook in a calm, clear voice starting with a brief history of Wicca and outlining its structure, belief system, holidays, the importance of the moon cycles, the God and Goddess concept, the cycles of life and nature, and then briefly describes the ritual and tools a witch uses. She then moves along to active practice leading the listener through a grounding session which incorporates slow, yogic breathing to calm the mind of busy thoughts which gently leads one into a meditative state necessary for successful ritual work. The recording ends with a step-by-step ritual.

This is a good place to start for anyone interested in learning what Wicca is all about. However there is a lot of information packed into the first section that only briefly touches on subjects that will require further reading for anyone seriously interested in practicing Wicca. That?s not really a complaint as there are so many aspects of Wicca that they could never properly be detailed in one tome (well, it may be possible but the thing would weigh several tons and be impossible to lug around!). Still, I do wish this audio were longer than a little over one hour as I very much enjoyed Starhawk's narration and her informative writing skills.
