All of the books I recommend here are, in my opinion, the best on the market. They offer information for everyone from the curious parent who wishes to know JUST what their teen-ager is up to, to the mature Pagan who wishes to explore the history and future of Paganism, Wicca, and/or Ecclectic Solitary Practice. Each book has either my personal recommendation or is recognized by many in the community as authoratative. As an associate of Amazon.com , you can be sure you are getting an honest price from a respected retailer.

A Wiccan Bardo: Initiation And Self-Transformation Paul Beyerl

....is a far-ranging work of great beauty and insight bringing together previously unpublished Wiccan material from the tradition of Lothlorien. This definitive guide explains Wiccan ritual ethics and initiatory processes concluding with the exquisite Ritual for the Dead which is performed for seven consecutive days. Like the more familiar Tibetan Bardo Thodol, it provides a transformative experience for the recently departed. --Book Description

This is an excellant book, though very tradition oriented. The Lothlorien Tradition is very beautiful and was founded by Paul Beyerl; you may find it fulfilling. This book is worth having especially for its section on Wiccan Ethics; a subject considered by many as too taboo to comment on. If you are new to the Craft, this book explains most common beliefs and gives you excellant footing to futher explore Pagan philosophy. --SlvrSplsh

Explore their celebrations, talismans, song and dance, herbal lore, runes and glyphs, and recipes. Learn how to practice the religion in the city and with groups.
