It’s not about where you’re from but where you are.
The material is adaptable to any region in which the practitioner lives. Although the lack of deity worship and holidays is a significant part of the authors’ nonreligious approach, this book presents a complete system of practice utilizing ritual, chant, trance, the six paths of witchcraft as defined and explained by the text, and the practices associated with traditional witchcraft
