The Path of Paganism provides practical advice and support for living an authentic Pagan life in our mainstream Western culture. Witches, druids, polytheists, and other Pagans will discover an experiential guide to the foundations and practices of these deeply meaningful traditions.

For John Beckett, practicing Paganism means more than adopting a set of books, tools, and holidays. Practicing Paganism means cultivating a way of seeing the world and your place in it. It means challenging the assumptions of mainstream society, keeping those that prove true and helpful while discarding those that show themselves to be false. It means building a solid foundation from which you can explore the nature of the universe, the gods, your self, and your community while learning to strengthen your relationship with all of them.

My Review

This book, from a long-time practising druid, was really good, and one of the best I’ve read from Llewellyn. Generally, I’ve found books from Llewellyn are wishy-washy and aimed at people first learning about paganism. This book is not wishy-washy or aimed at people with no experience.

John Beckett is a respected pagan with years of experience, both as a devotee, and, as a ritual leader. His experience really shows in this book, and the advice he gives is practical and thoughtful, for those wanting to advance their religious practice.

Easy to read and digest, with questions to think about and suggestions for deepening religious practice.

4/5
