I just picked this book up, & I was wondering if anyone else had read it.  I am considering following the monthly lesson plan in the book, at least in terms of meditation work it suggests, but I would greatly appreciate feedback from anyone who has used it or tried to use it.  Did you find it useful? enriching?  factually accurate?

I don't own it, but have read through it. I really like her ethical case studies. The rest of it is... if you're looking for a structured but notably more Neo-Wicca mode of learning, I think she does a good job of that, but you should be aware that some of how she approaches specific topics comes from a less-trad perspective, especially around definitions and how some pieces fit together.

(To be more specific, I'd either need some examples, or to get the book out of the library again.)

thanks for the advice!  i was starting to notice the markedly neo-Wiccan perspective, as well as really overt feminism.  i can't lie; i like the feminist part a lot! Wink

If that's the case, you might also really like the book _Twelve Wild Swans_ by Starhawk and Hilary Valentine - it's actually less directly political than some of Starhawk's other work, but it's got some really great exercises and meditations and other techniques, as well as a really interesting way of connecting them into a solid foundation for practice and developing it over time.
