Summary

Everything you need to know about the craft of the wise.

Witchcraft is a vibrant, nature-based spiritual practice that is alive and well in our modern times, just as it has been throughout history. It’s also an enormous topic that can be overwhelming for those who are just starting to explore it. There’s so much to learn, and there are many differing perspectives on what is "correct" or "incorrect" in terms of knowledge and practice. Truly, it may be the one of the most confounding of all forms of spirituality!

Modern Witchcraft and Magic for Beginners, by best-selling author Lisa Chamberlain, was created to provide a fact-based, neutral orientation to launch you on your quest for knowledge. Whether you choose to call yourself a Witch, a Wiccan, both, or neither, this audiobook will help you navigate the various opinions, definitions, and perspectives you’ll find in the wide, wide world of the Craft. You’ll find:

  • An overview of the historical and cultural contexts in which contemporary Witchcraft has evolved
  • A debunking of common misconceptions about Witchcraft as it is practiced today
  • Core beliefs and practices found among a variety of forms of the Craft
  • Clear distinctions between Wiccan, Traditional, and Eclectic paths
  • Core concepts underlying the "why" and "how" of magic
  • A brief look at a few common magical techniques - visualization, invocation, and candle magic
  • Some example workings for you to try, if you feel so inclined
  • Suggested references for those who want to explore these topics further

Whether your curiosity about the Craft is intellectual, spiritual, or both, you’ll find plenty of useful information in Modern Witchcraft and Magic for Beginners. If you're ready to explore this fascinating realm, listen to this audiobook!

Enjoyable and fact filled

I really enjoyed this book and her neutral approach to the many branches she details.

The narrator left the transitions between sections a bit short and the splicing of other recordings to correct mistakes were very noticeable.

not happy with this audio book at all

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

a better person reading the book !

What do you think your next listen will be?

not sure yet

How could the performance have been better?

she was terrible ! her voice was so flat it was hard to not zone completely out while she talked but then suddenly her voice and become louder .. it sounded like she had recorded the same paragraph a few times and someone mashed them all together with no flow at all ! also she has extremely long pauses between paragraphs i actually checked to see if my phone had died or something. Im glad i did not waste my money on this book sadly i did waste a free credit

What character would you cut from Witchcraft for Beginners?

the book has no characters

Any additional comments?

I wasn't actually very pleased with the contents of the book its self but that is just my person opinion on her topics

Very Basic

I was interested in what this book offered based on the description but after reading it I see that it is more of an extended Wikipedia entry very basic information that anyone interested in this topic most likely already knows would only recommend for people who have absolutely no introduction to this topic.

Unbiased and informative

This guide gives you a good taste of the various branches of witchcraft and wicca as well as interesting history of the craft. The author skillfully presents each topic without interjecting her opinions.
