Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft (affectionately known as "The Big Blue Book") is one of the most thorough and respected resources for the study and practice of modern Witchcraft.

Written by Raymond Buckland, the man who introduced Gardnerian Wicca to the U.S. over 30 year ago, Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft is a richly illustrated, self-study course for the solitary or group that is ideal for novices and adepts alike. Included are rituals; exercises for developing psychic talents; information on major "sects" of the Craft; sections on tools, beliefs, dreams, meditations, divination, herbal lore, healing, ritual clothing and much, much more!

Beside the breadth of information covered in this book, the real key to Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft is it's design. It is, in fact, a workbook. You can use it by yourself or as a text for a coven. In fact, many covens use this as a source for their secret Book of Shadows.

A big book (8.5" x 11"), Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft is divided into fifteen lessons. In the first, you'll be introduced to the history and philosophy of Witchcraft. The second lesson explores the deities of Witchcraft, the witch's altar and provides an introduction to magick. In the third lesson, you'll learn about the witch's tools, ritual clothing, and how to choose your Craft name.

Lesson four of Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft shows you how to cast magick circles and about initiation. Lesson five reviews covens and degrees, the Book of Shadows, and includes instructions on performing several rituals. Lesson six covers the four major Sabbats or festivals, such as Imbolc, Beltane, Lughnasadh, and Samhain or Halloween. Complete rituals are given to celebrate each of these Wiccan holidays.

Other lessons in Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft include rituals for marriage and birth, meditation, dreams, channeling, eight types of divination, numerous types of magick, runes, talismans, magikal dance and more. There is an entire lesson on healing, another on how to design your own rituals and start your own coven, and yet another on how to work as a solitary witch.

Buckland's clear and comprehensive writing have made Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft one of the most popular, most consulted, and most quoted Wiccan books of all time. It has become a key resource in the rebirth of the Craft, and is an excellent reference for your personal practice or coven's library.
