Raymond Buckland's gift as a teacher and author is his ability to bring the esoteric down to earth. His first book, "Practical Candleburning Rituals", brought the folk art of candleburning magick to thousands of people in easy to understand, and easy to use format.
This book takes the simple methods present in that first book and expands on them. This is not a book about Witchcraft, the religion, but rather a specific form of magick. However, Buckland equips the reader with enough ethical training and understanding of the nature of magick to be able to perform these rituals effectively and safely. The difference between this book and "Practical Candleburning Rituals" is that the rituals in this book will take more preparation and time, and will involve more expensive materials and more extensive timing preparations than those in the first book. However, as a basic introduction to the art of "High" or "Ceremonial" magick, it is highly recommended.
I love this book. I bought the two- his first candle ritual book and tried the spells with success ofcoarse. This book is advaced and offers more rituals like contacting the deceased of a loved one. Im right now gathering the required elements to contact my grandma and confers with her. Anyone who cares wish me luck and blessings.- Anthony G. Oh and buy this book!
