More than 10 years ago, it was the first book written specifically for Wiccan parents. Now it's the 21st century's best reference for the still growing number of neo-Pagan parents who want to introduce their children to the principles of their religion. Like Ashleen's other books, it's written from her perspective as a Wiccan, but it's easy for Asatruar and Druids to "translate" and use too. In "Family Wicca", priestess, wife and mother Ashleen O'Gaea offers encouragement, shares her own family's experiences, discusses real-life challenges and how to deal with them and provides a wealth of simple rituals and inexpensive projects that will enhance your family's life in every way. Learn to ground your family in Wicca without devaluing other religions...explain life, sex, death compassionately and with calm common sense. Live mythically...and joyfully celebrate the passages in your life. Not only will you find lots of ideas to use right away, you'll also refer to this book again and again as your traditions grow with your family. It includes, for example: answers to hard questions about the faith from children and non-Wiccan family and friends; ways to put Charge of the Child into practice; blessings for daily events and spells for daily problems; tips on celebrating the Sabbats through camping and other outdoor activities; and projects to do together, such as making brooms, banners, calendars and colouring books. Wicca's families are Wicca's future. The need for mutual support is increasing and "Family Wicca" is back - revised and expanded.
This book covers basic Wiccan practice and belief, and how that can be integrated into both a family practice and the raising of a child in a Wiccan belief system. Although the subtitle is "Practical Paganism...", the book really refers to modern pagan Witchcraft, and specifically Wicca. Covering spiritual, magical, social, and political topics, this book provides ideas & rituals pertaining to a family-based practice. It also deals with spiritual questions that children may ask, and gives pointers on how to answer them. I also enjoyed the glimpses of personal experience offered by the author, who raised her own child in the Wiccan tradition.
