About the book...

A fairy tale about twelve wild swans is transformed
into a set of instructions for an initiatory journey
into the world of magic and Witchcraft. The lessons
set out in The Spiral Dance are taken to a more
profound level in this book, the first ever written to

circles, covens, and groups, this volume instructs on
three levels--the craft of magical training,
inner-spiritual development, and outer work in the
greater world...

Each chapter of the book is constructed to accommodate
three levels of experience, and three areas of focus.

I think I'm going to give it a try. I've done this 'reading as a group' kinda thing before, and enjoyed it. wonder about the 'learning to be a witch' aspect of it. Everything I know I have picked up on my own, hopefully the mods are open to different opinions.
