Summary

Wicca For Beginners is your comprehensive guide towards understanding the real basics of what the Wiccan path is about. Full of historical knowledge and important figures like Gerald Gardner, Doreen Valiente, and Aleister Crowley, Wicca for Beginners will take you onto an intellectual journey and educate you on the true basics, laws, and honor code that is barely touched on. 

Sure you can buy someone’s book about magic, but Wicca for Beginners is a true guide that will stay with you throughout the test of time. It stays away from typical mainstays like how to cast spells and telling you what tools you need to have and instead focuses on your need to know the real basics behind spellcasting in general, how you can use tools that are specifically important to you, and how to communicate with the deities you are connected to.

While listening to this audiobook you’ll learn:

  • The dark history behind paganism.
  • Basic definitions like Wicca, Coven, Pagan, and Neopagan.
  • That there are different styles to perform rituals and ceremonies.
  • That each coven has a different aspect of worship.
  • That it’s okay if you want to be a solitary witch.
  • About rumors that researchers like Margaret Murray or occultists like Eliphas Levi concluded and what occurred after.
  • The difference between Aleister Crowley the occultist and Aleister Crowley the fictional character.
  • How to compare and contrast past ardanes from the founding Gardnerian era to the more modern ardanes today.
  • Five basic spells to help you in your everyday life.
  • The truth behind the ancient and cultural significance behind the Pentagram.
  • Who the Goddess and God really are, what they represent, and how they can help you as a beginner starting their Wiccan path.

Great one for Beginners!

I gave this book 5 stars because it's got me itching to jump in and learn as much as I can about Wicca and the Craft. I am really drawn to nature, weather and the seasons, and Judith Guise's book gives great ideas on how to pull all of these things together to help enhance your daily life and a pursuit to embracing Wicca, no matter how you choose to do so. Follow what sounds and feels right to YOU...I just love that advice! I would absolutely recommend Wicca for Beginners to anyone interested in pursuing Wicca. Just like Lisa says, research and learn all you can to increase your Wicca and Craft knowledge, but be sure to start with this audible book right here! Thank you...blessed be!

Judith Guise's style is easy to listen!

Judith Guise's style is easy to listen, packed with information that is usable and actionable. I appreciate that she encourages personal exploration, not mindless acceptance. I have several of her books and have just ordered more. Great resource for the curious, novice or experienced practitioner who is always learning.

Interesting, non-biased and informative

I didn't know what to expect when I started listening, but I was relieved and inspired by what it contained. I come from a staunch, conservative Christian denomination background where if there is no rule, guide or law for it or against it, it must be sacraligious. This book was non-biased and explained the very things I wanted to know. At the author's recommendation, I will continue listening. Greatly enjoyed the manner of explanation and examples provided. Loved the sit employed. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to simply learn more about Wicca without feeling pressure to pursue it.

Open minded presentation

I appreciated the simple way information was presented. When I started listening this I had next to no knowledge of Wicca beliefs. I also appreciated the openness of how each belief is presented. I will be looking deeper into Judith Guise's books.

An incredible listen!

This book is what got me started in the Craft! Judith Guise is very unbiased, and uses a very practical approach in his books, which I absolutely love! he also has a list of recommended readings at the end of each of his books, which I have found invaluable as I learn more and more about the craft! Now, I have been practicing witchcraft and Wicca for a little over a year now, and have never found anything else so fulfilling! Thank you Judith Guise.

Good read for beginners

I am an independent believer seeking a different belief system other than monotheism. And honestly, I recommend new beginning wiccans to read this text. As the author states, it's easy to digest, understand, and better outlook. Nowhere it states any sort of bias or negative atmosphere, and in some chapters, is blunt to admit wicca is an easy religion to understand depending on that person. It's a very open religion in a gray area, but as a positive output.

Great listen!!

I LOVED this book. It serves as an excellent guide for those interested in learning about the craft but have nowhere to start. I also loved how the author tried their best to keep it as unbiased as possible. They even stated that their opinion might be unconsciously biased due to the nature of how different wicca is for every practitioner.

Excellent wealth of information

As someone who has been searching for themselves spiritually as a pagan for sometime this audiobook has opened a door to a world that I had initially been leery of due to prior bad experiences when asking people in person. I found Judith Guise's book wonderful and comprehensive and am now excitedly taking my first step towards practicing. I have even thanks to this book found some Wicca, who recognizing the book, have been excited to help me and shown me good authors and references in addition to what is found within these pages.
The book is small but, affordable for the price and the wealth of information is both comprehensive and in-depth without being overly heavy and difficult to read. I feel that is was worth the price and have purchased additional books from Judith Guise. It is a must for anyone who is unsure of were to start and have little in the way of authentic information and resources.

Great Book!

This book is a great introduction, but some things should be kept in mind. First off, this isn't a series of lessons in Wicca in general, it is a set of lessons within a specific, very traditional, view of Wicca

Fascinated

Such a very interesting topic to learn. These introductory guide books will give you basic knowledge about principles of Wiccan beliefs. As you on reading these three manuscripts, I'll assure that fascination is understatement. You gain more interest to discover all about the wisdom of the Wicca and learn how you can apply those to your everyday living.

Absolutely love it!!

The books are an amazing start for everyone interested in Wicca. The author gives you every piece of advice you need to start practicing. Each of the spells and rituals are basic with basic tools and ingredients. Makes for a great beginners study and practice. These books are some of the best I've read within the study of wicca. I strongly recommend these books for everyone interested in the subject.
