A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner
Scott Cunningham

The Wiccan faith aims to connect its practitioners back to their roots in the natural world. This books aims to guide readers through a study of that tradition.


Product Description

Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner is Scott Cunningham's classic introduction to Wicca. Modern Wicca, derived from an ancient Earth-based spiritual tradition, places a heavy emphasis on the practice of faith through the lens of nature and the physical form.

Cunningham’s guide is the quintessential introduction to anyone hoping to live their life magically, spiritually, and in-tune with Mother Earth. While many involved in the new age faith community practice their religion in communities or covens, Wicca can also be practiced as an intensely personal faith. This book is not only about magic, but also about religion and how to achieve a wholesome relationship with our Earth as you navigate your worlds. Cunningham presents Wicca as it is today: a gentle, Earth-oriented religion dedicated to the Goddess and God.

Inside the book, you’ll find information on the history of Wicca and its practice, detailed guides to Wiccan exercises, rituals, and techniques, in addition to helpful reference information about Wiccan festivals and items.

If you’ve ever been curious about Wicca, Cunningham’s book is the perfect place to start your exploration.

The Best Guide to Wicca Out There

By Lisa McCracken, Salem, OR

This book is very popular and for good reason! In the scheme of things I really believe Wicca: A Guide For a Solitary Practitioner is probably the best preparation for Witchcraft around. Scott Cunningham has written probably the best explanation of what it truly means to be a Wiccan. This book is practically an encyclopedia of Wiccan knowledge. If you've ever wanted to know how to make your own Mead or incense, build a stone altar, or even determine the exact meaning and use of a pentagram, then you'll want to read this guide. There is a reason this book has sold over 400,000 copies, it's the best guide out there for starting a new life in Wicca.
