Persuasions of the Witch’s Craft: Ritual Magic in Contemporary England by T.M. Luhrmann
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I reference this book in my book, The Witch’s Eight Paths of Power. Part personal odyssey, part anthropological study, this book explores an anthropologist’s study of the London occult community and learning the language of the occult. Its primary use to a magickal sort is in examining the process we deliberately induce in ourselves by occult study. Unlike the author, however, I (as a Witch) view this as a valuable process that, rather than creating a “false” absorption of the “superstition” of magick, teaches you what happens to your thought processes when you are learning magickal practice, so that you can speak the language of manifestation more effectively.
