Beyond Wicca 101

The Wiccan Mystic is the intermediate to advanced book on Wiccan spirituality that you’ve been looking for.

Perhaps you’ve read one, two, or more beginner books on Wicca and know this is the spiritual path for you. Maybe you’ve been practicing as a Wiccan for a few years now. You might even be an elder in a formal Wiccan group with a decade or more of experience under your belt. If one of these sounds like you, and you are looking for solid information to expand your understanding, or want suggestions for ways to advance on a Wiccan spiritual path, this book is for you.

The Wiccan Mystic takes the foundational ideas of Wicca and explores them in more depth. Learn about what constitutes a mystery religion and how Wicca fits the pattern. Discover the living mystical core of Wiccan practice and strengthen it in your own exploration of this exciting magickal path. Establish strong thinking skills to help you empower your spiritual life and open up new vistas for exploration. Tap into your individual direct relationship with the Divine and feel new joy come into your life.

The Wiccan Mystic presents proven ways to help practitioners develop a sophisticated, mature, yet surprisingly simple spiritual depth. Learn to grow your relationship with your chosen gods and goddesses to new levels of intimacy. Discover how magick can be an integral part of an ecologically sound, profoundly ethical, and spiritually based life.

Explore nonphysical realms and learn how actions on other planes affect life in the physical. Learn ways to discover new knowledge and transcend time and space in your pursuits. Experience how we each individually fit into the greater Divine pattern. Whether you are a solitary practitioner or a member of a dedicated magickal group, you will find ideas and techniques in The Wiccan Mystic that will enhance your spiritual and magickal growth.
