Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

With over 35 years of experience and training as a practicing witch, Grimassi is qualified to write about Wiccan traditions. As the author of ten award-winning books on contemporary Wicca, he has developed a following. His latest work is designed to help both new and experienced practitioners design a traditional structure based on strong Wiccan foundations that is also suited to the individual's or group's distinctive spiritual path. Topics covered range from training new members, setting laws for the group, choosing the Pantheon, and creating Wheel of the Year rituals. Readers should have a general knowledge of Wicca to understand all of the nuances of the text. Suitable for all libraries.
