Beyond The Basics Of Casting And Calling|
Castings: The Creation Of Sacred Space
Author: Ivo Dominguez, Jr. [a Witchvox Sponsor]
Publisher: SapFire Productiond
Category: Magick, Wicca Level: Intermediate
Castings is an invitation to explore the uses of sacred space. It also provides enough theory so that the mechanisms of magick are understandable, and describes the protocols needed to use more than a dozen different castings. The castings range from variations on the Quarters-called Circle, so broadly used in the West, to rare and powerful castings such as the Triangle of Stillness. For the beginner, this book should serve as a solid foundation for developing proficiency in the first and most important part of magick: movement into higher realms and sacred space. For the long-time practitioner this book should renew and refresh the sense of possibility and wonder that is central to magick by suggesting new nuances. Although from a decidedly Wiccan perspective, Castings was written to be inclusive and supportive of all positive spiritual paths
From Elizabeth R Barrette:
Overall, Castings greatly impressed me. I read a LOT of books,including a lot of Pagan books and older mythology material. The tone came across as fresh and direct, and the book contained quite a bit of information that was either new to me or very difficult to find elsewhere. I found it highly useful and will probably use it as a reference also.
It is the best intermediate-level book I have seen in a long time. Most of the books I read are aimed at beginners, advanced practitioners, or a general audience. This one is quite specifically an intermediate book, and I've been looking for one for a while since I so often say "a great beginner's book" or "for the experienced student" in my reviews.
