Wicca - Not For Everyone

Advantages: Depends what you do it for
Disadvantages: Not for everyone. Takes practice and patience.

Review of Member Advice on Wicca

Wicca's Hermetic Roots

Advantages: intergrates kaballah and pathworkings with magic
Disadvantages: needed more grass-roots pagan elements

One of the most interesting historical facts about Wicca is that Gerald Gardener's Book of Shadows was very much based upon his time in Aleister Crowley's Ordo Templi Orientis. If you compare the rituals, including those published by Doreen Valiente and e ...
