Go Deeper, Reach Further, Fly Higher
Paperback      ISBN: 0738705136
“You need no magickal tools, elaborate robes, or witchy jewelry to make this trip. Just bring along your passion and self-discipline, your humility and your courage, your determination and your faith. Unlike the road of the mainstream religions where the flock must play Follow the Leader into the realms of higher learning, we Witches must find that path ourselves and walk it alone.

A Witch's 10 Commandments
Magickal Guidelines for Everyday Life
2nd Edition    Paperback      ISBN: 1593375042
While the art of witchcraft is uniquely personal, an underlying code of ethics and principles binds its serious practitioners together. For the first time, this code is defined in terms everyone can understand. In A Witch's 10 Commandments, renowned Wiccan author Marian Singer uses the ubiquitous biblical rules to frame the 10 tenets witches should live by. These tenets incorporate aphorisms common to the New Age, Neo-Pagan movement, such as: Thou art God/Goddess As Above, so Below; as Within, so Without Spirit abides in all things; Names have power; Maintain an attitude of gratitude; Honor the ancestors, your elders, teachers, and leaders; All life is sacred; All acts of love and pleasure are sacred; Whatever you send out, returns three fold; Love is the law Love under will Work for the greatest good; and harm none. Accompanying each commandment are practical spiritual exercises for everyday issues, such as controlling an over-heated temper, supporting elders and teachers, giving back to the earth, and more. With A Witch's 10 Commandments in your library, you have a solid blueprint for ethical practice, allowing you to walk the ancient path of the witch in today's world.
