Buckland says, "By the time you have finished this training.
Many of us have long commented that in various covens and different branches of the Craft the level of background training required for advanced initiations has varied radically. Ray's comprehensive training volume should provide the long-awaited basic curriculum that all Witches should be expected to know and be able to practice.
In sharing this material, the author reflects a new era of openness. In the past, Craft secrets of this nature have been highly guarded, and publication of them would have been unthinkable just a few years ago.
The lessons in this workbook are positive and ethical. Ray emphasizes that Witchcraft entails "acceptance of personal and social responsibility," and that "it is acknowledgement of a wholistic universe and a means towards a raising of consciousness". Of course, an ideal workbook should also be a sturdy handbook that provides good, practical information that is easily readable. For anyone looking for a solid education in Witchcraft, Paganism, and magick, this book will prove to be a true treasure. In fact, this book is so jam- packed with information that it may well become the definitive work on this subject!
This is just the volume from which to build a basis of solid, valid, most important knowledge, and to use as a foundation from any Craft library. I'd recommend that all who are interested in the Old Religion get this book, study it. He has been actively involved in the study of the occult for over thirty-five years, and an initiate of the Old Religion for twenty-five. In the past fifteen years he has had more than a dozen books published and has written numerous newspaper and magazine articles. Considered an authority on witchcraft and the occult, Ray served as technical advisor for the Orson Welles movie Necromancy and also worked as an advisor for a stage production of Macbeth with William Friedkin director of The Exorcist.
Ray Buckland comes from a family of English Gypsies and is actively involved in researching Romany roots. Today he lives with his wife Tara in Millersburg, Ohio.

The material world and the psychic are intertwined, and it is this very fact that establishes the Magickal Link: that the psychic can as easily influence the material as vice versa. Magick can, and should, be used in one's daily life for better living! Each of us has been given Mind and Body, and surely we are under Spiritual obligation to make full usage of these wonderful gifts. Mind and Body work together, and Magick is simply the extension of this interaction into dimensions beyond the limits normally conceived.
That's why we commonly talk of the "supernormal" in connection with domain of Magick. The Body is alive, and all Life is an expression of the Divine.

Practical Magick is concerned with the Craft of Living well and in harmony with Nature, and with the Magick of the Earth, in the things of the Earth, in the seasons and cycles and in the things we make with hand and Mind. Also by Raymond Buckland Witchcraft..
