Excellent and Original, a 'Must-have'
While there are a few editorial mistakes throughout the book, as well as some facts and etymologies than could have been researched much more throughly, over-all this is a brilliant read. The Cosmology models for pathworking and Magic are original and extremely useful to anyone working in a Wiccan paradigm. This book will be on my recommended Craft Books list from now on along with other Farrar classics.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Fresh Perspective on Ancient Ways of Wicca
From the first moment I began reading PROGRESSIVE WITCHCRAFT, my attention was riveted by the revelation that finally, here is a book that shows the history of Wicca with all its many ever-evolving paths! Truly a scholarly work, PROGRESSIVE WITCHCRAFT includes relevant references at the end of each chapter where readers may further explore specific areas of interest. I was particularly impressed by the inclusion of both the chakra system and Jungian psychology -- along with explanations of how these different perspectives and shamanism have woven their way into various forms and practices of witchcraft. PROGRESSIVE WITCHCRAFT is the kind of book that I imagine will be required reading in many formal Wiccan training programs, because it provides an extraordinarily thorough overview of the history of the craft. Packed with useful tips, tools and exercises, it's also a first-rate introduction to witchcraft that is certain to become a beloved reference book for years to come.Was this review helpful?
