    The Path Beckons

    Individually and together, Amber K and Azrael Arynn K up at Ardantane in the red rock Jemez country of New Mexico are fast becoming responsible for a shelf full of excellent books, mostly from Llewellyn, on various aspects of spiritual practice. These include the classic True Magick, now in its second edition, and the more recent Ritual Craft and Exploring the Pagan Path. Their latest, How to Become a Witch, is not so thick or chewy as some of the others, nor is it meant to be. This is a very basic primer written expressly for the newcomer to the Craft. Wisely avoiding assumptions, it begins in the Introduction with the fundamental question of whether the reader should even consider setting foot upon the path of Witchcraft. If the answer is yes, then the authors go on to provide a clear route to follow, with each chapter building on those that went before. Beyond the bare bones of the content, I read here also the wisdom that comes from decades of attentive practice and experience. This book is very serious where it needs to be but is also filled with warm humor where it is warranted and with great compassion for all of us on the long trek from novice to elder. With Amber and Azrael you do not get the arrogance or condescension you might encounter from other "masters" writing on these same topics; they never talk down. As always with these writers, the appendices to this volume form an invaluable, comprehensive (50 pages!), up-to-date resource for further exploration and study. Longtime practitioners, I think, will be particularly engaged by the insightful new version of "The Charge of the Goddess," which appears at page 30. If you are a sincere seeker, no matter where on your personal journey, you will find How to Become a Witch a warm and welcoming roadmap to your destination.

    Not my thing...

    But someone else may like it. I am glad I wasn't given this book as a new pagan as I don't think I would have continued on this path. It wasn't a total waste of time or money however, there are bits of good information in there but getting to it felt like a chore. I am hoping the bit about New Yorkers was a joke, but either way your perpetuating the myth that the City is all our state is.
