Self-Initiation for the Solitary Witch
Publisher: New Page Books
Category: New Age/Wicca Level: All
In Hellenistic Greece (and probably earlier) several “schools” were established, in theory at least, to teach people about the mysteries of the gods. This learning took place in stages or degrees. Students began by dedicating themselves to a particular school of study. With each successive degree, the initiate delved into deeper and more profound studies.
Within modern Wicca, the urge still exists to find a particular school. Covens are an option for some, but they can be hard to find. Even when you find one, it may not satisfy your particular quest. Other practitioners live in areas where it is not as easy to “come out of the broom closet, ” so they have little access to groups. Additionally, many people who desire more direct access to their god or goddess choose to practice alone. Self-Initiation for the Solitary Witch is the solution for all of these dilemmas.
This much-needed text leads practitioners through five-degree studies, from beginning concepts all the way through more advanced and integrative practices:
First Degree: Path of Intellect
Includes: history, ethics, tenets, basic ritual, basic spellcraft and healing, and introductory divination techniques.
Second Degree: Path of the Heart
Includes: celebrations, meditations, energy work, cleansing and protection methods, and psychic work.
Third Degree: Path of the Soul
Includes: element of spirit, kundalini raising, group dynamics, spiritual advising, and advanced magickal study.
Fourth Degree: Path of the Physical
Includes: working on yourself, rituals of rebirth, meditations on the Unity, service to others, and finding wholeness.
Fifth Degree: Path of the Mysterious
Includes: community work, earth consciousness, Wiccan lifestyle, and planetary and star studies.
Each Degree is a complete course of study.
