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!

Nice Book For Beginners

I actually enjoyed listening this book! It has some great information on the Wiccan belief system as well as basic information on the Craft part of the belief system. It was very easy to read and understand. Yes, it is for beginners but it's also a great book for those who are interested in Wicca. Or for those who just want to know a bit about Wicca. Definitely recommended book.

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.

Excellent resource - quick listen!

This book provides a good overview of Wiccan spirituality. It is a brief overview but extremely well-written. Took me about 2.5 days to listen and there wasn't a single chapter that I didn't come away with something learned. In addition to the overview (which included discussion of the various traditions of Wicca) there are some example rituals you can use and she encourages you to modify them as suits you. As many people have said - the author is not pushy in the least.

I liked this book for its clear language

I liked this book for its clear language, concise explanations, and accurate history. The author has done quite a bit of research and distilled it into this guide, which gives an overview with depth and historical interest. She doesn't seem overly dramatic, but matter of fact and 'normal'. She makes the rest of us Pagans and Wiccans look like what we are -- everyday folks who have a nature based belief system. Good to listen, overall.

I have been looking for information on wicca

I have been looking for information on wicca for years, because for some unknown reason though I knew very little about it I felt drawn to it. The more I found on the topic the more confused I got. I now understand why. This book helped me so much. Thank you.

Excellent book for the beginner or explorer

What I liked most about this book was that the author presented a broad perspective without bias. This approach is excellent for those who are new to Wicca. I really like how Lisa Chamberlain encourages self development of one's beliefs and path. he accurately describes the fact that interpretations of Wicca will vary widely and there is no right or wrong way, just whatever feels right to you that harms none.

Amazing book. Fantastic Writer.

So, I've been interested in Wicca for many years, but never really felt that it was a good fit for me. However, revisiting this religion, I have found that I am more and more drawn to it. I purchased this book to reintroduce myself to the religion, as well as to educate myself. I have learned so much and have realized that Wicca is something that I would like to practice. It's about energy and intuition. Wicca is beautiful and I am honored to have been chosen to be involved with it.

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 introduction for beginners

Covers all the basics. Gives enough information to keep a listener interest; well written. This is definitely geared for someone who has little or no knowledge of Wicca; educational but not pedantic.

I enjoy to listen this book and i will recommended this book all my friend.

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

Perfect place to get started

It is a good place to get started. And a good reference to listen. It feels like an accepting place and the author seems to be talking straight to you.Great book.

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.
