Wicca for Beginners : Fundamentals of Philosophy and Practice Paperback
by Thea Sabin
"In her first book-length work, Sabin presents a first-rate, fresh, and thorough addition to the burgeoning field of earth-based spiritual practice volumes...written in a light, informative style that magically mines depth, breadth and brevity."--Publishers Weekly, starred review Due to the sheer number of Wicca 101 books on the market, many newcomers to the Craft find themselves piecing together their Wiccan education by reading a chapter from one book, a few pages from another.
Rather than depending on snippets of wisdom to build a new faith, Wicca for Beginners provides a solid foundation to Wicca without limiting the reader to one tradition or path.
Embracing both the spiritual and the practical, Wicca for Beginners is a primer on the philosophies, culture, and beliefs behind the religion, without losing the mystery that draws many students to want to learn.
Detailing practices such as grounding, raising energy, visualization, and meditation, this book offers exercises for core techniques before launching into more complicated rituals and spellwork. Finalist for the Coalition of Visionary Resources Award for Best Wiccan/Pagan Book

Review by Sassers
A great fundamental book for those who are curious as to what Wicca is. It has some really great exercises to get you started as well. If you are just studying the material or starting a dedication to the religion this is a must read.
Review by Rowan.Maza
Great introduction to Wiccan ideals and practices. Includes practical advice on obtaining or making your own tools and basic information and exercises for energy work, visualization, grounding, shielding, trance, meditation and much more. Provides plenty of references to continue your own research. I would recommend this book to anyone who is curious about Wicca or considering dedicating themselves.
