9780709090144: What Witches Do: A Modern Coven Revealed

What do witches really do? What is it like to be a witch? Experience the process through the eyes of Stewart Farrar, author, journalist and witch, as he describes in detail the activities and practices of modern day witches. When Stewart first starting writing "What Witches Do", he was 'an interested agnostic' writing from an objective viewpoint. But by the time the book was finished he had been initiated into the mysteries of Wicca, and was destined to become internationally known as one of the worlds leading writers on the subject. Even though now almost 40 years old, the material and philosophy that Stewart discusses within remains as relevant today as it did in the early 1970s. Retrace those life changing steps with Stewart as he explores the magic, ritual and mystery of life in a coven. The book now also includes Stewart's research material which sheds new light on his involvement with 'King of the Witches', Alex Sanders, founder of the Alexandrian Tradition.

About the Author:

Stewart and Janet Farrar were both initiated by Alex and Maxine Sanders in 1970. After receiving their Third Degrees from the Sanders' they left Alex and Maxine's coven to form their own. They married in 1972 and moved to the Republic of Ireland in 1976 where they have lived and worked together as writers ever since. They have run a coven in Ireland continuously since then, although its structure and membership has changed radically from its original Alexandrian roots. They have since written Eight Sabbats For Witches', The Witches' Way (jointly published as The Witches Bible), The Witches' Goddess, The Witches God, Spells and How They Work, to name but a few. Their books have become some of the most influential in Witchcraft and have set the mould for modern Craft writers worldwide. Stewart Farrar passed away in February 2000.
