Vivianne Crowley’s Wicca: A Comprehensive Guide to the Old Religion in the Modern World is a classic, now once again available at Treadwell’s. Written by a psychologist with a Jungian bent, it looks at the psychological processes in initiatory Wicca, treating it as a spiritual path of great depth. To that end, the author treats topics such as finding the Goddess and God within, developing magical powers, and the themes of personal growth found in the intiatory tradition’s rites. Themes of personal transformation are dealt with with insight and grace. With a skilful blending of Jungian psychology to an initiated occult understanding, Wicca is a modern classic of Witchcraft practice.
