5.0 out of 5 starsThe Inner Temple Changed my Life!
Reviewed in Canada 🇨🇦 on July 31, 2015
Loved it!!! Honestly the best 101 witchcraft book I've ever read. I'm a huge fan of Christopher's writing in general. This book is the first of his 5 level tradition of witchcraft called the "Temple of Witchcraft". This first book is all about inner work to develop your psychic senses and magickal power. This tradition is not specifically Wicca, but does very much subscribe to the Wiccan Rede of "An it harm none, do what ye will". If you are looking to harm anyone or yourself magickally, you will find no substance here to support that. Everything in this tradition is to support personal transformation and is a viable path to enlightenment. If you are interested in being the best possible version of yourself and make the world a better place with the use magick, then by all means this book is great. Each book in the series is a full year of training. If you do all the exercises in earnest and read at least some of the recommended additional reading, you will have your work cut out for you. For best results, you must do the exercises. I also recommend purchasing "Instant Magick" by Christopher Penczak as well as a companion to this book. After reading this, I decided to do the online apprenticeship with Christopher (www.christopherpenczak.com) and it has been nothing short of AMAZING! The online apprenticeship program is a huge commitment, so if you don't have the time for that, definitely use this book at your own pace. You can also purchase the accompanying CD with all the meditations. I've found this really helpful when I need a little guidance through all the visualizations and establishing a routine for my meditation practice.
After this book there are four additional books you can do to become a very well trained witch: The Outer Temple, Shamanic Witchcraft, High Witchcraft, and the 2 volume Living Temple.
