Publisher's Summary

For many aspiring witches, the path from novice to adept practitioner can be unclear. You can read all the books you like - and you definitely should - but putting your new knowledge into action on a regular basis isn't always so easy. Maybe you're navigating a need for secrecy due to friends, family members, or others who wouldn't understand your new spiritual undertaking. Or perhaps, like so many of us, you find it challenging to work all of the Sabbats and Esbats into your schedule, let alone making time for spell work. Then there's the question of initiation - when, how, and why should you formalize your dedication to the craft with a special ritual?
In Wicca, the tradition of studying for a year and a day before seeking initiation provides a useful framework, especially when it comes to covens. But what's a solitary witch to do without a rigorous plan for formal study? After all, Wicca has no official sacred texts or protocols to follow. What, exactly, do you need to know? What should you expect yourself to understand after a year and a day has passed? How can you be initiated if you practice on your own?
Living a Magical Life was created for new and aspiring witches who want more insight and ideas for fostering their own transition into full-fledged witchdom. It can definitely be used as part of your study as you make your way toward initiation/self-dedication, and even includes a step-by-step ritual you can perform when (and if) you feel the time is right.
So whether you're just beginning to learn about witchcraft, have been "dabbling" for some time without quite finding a solid footing, or are eager to formalize your relationship with the craft through an initiation ritual, you'll find something in this guide to aid you on your way. And no matter what your level of experience, this book will continue to be a useful resource throughout your Wiccan journey.

Good book, weird narrator

The information in the book is phenomenal!

It's just that the narrator kept reading 'rationalist' as 'Racialist.'

Which is:
racialist - a person with a prejudiced belief that one race is superior to others

Rather than:
ra·tion·al·ist
ˈraSH(ə)n(ə)ləst/
noun
1.
a person who bases their opinions and actions on reason and knowledge rather than on religious belief or emotional response.

Listening to almost a half an hour about Atheistic Witches who don't practice deity work, who are science minded and want "proof in their pudding" being called Racialist Wiccans
Over and over
Was rather disturbing.

I feel bad whenever the author hears this narrative.
