    The 1 5 Star Review is the total of what I have to say about this book specificallyCaveat This review is historicalarchival in nature 'Date read' is speculativeThis book is one of many books I have read about the occultpaganismwitchcraft This was the readily available faith in my household as a child Additionally I worked for a company in this field 2015 2016 and had to read an ocean of this stuff to do my jobLike televangelists and snake oil salesman these publishers prey on the vulnerable The authors are mentally ill suffering from 'magical thinking' and delusions Worst of all most of them can't write worth a damnLlewellyn Worldwide is the absolute worst on both counts I wouldn't even trust their overpriced CALENDARS to be accurateThese books are also big offenders on the the 'cultural appropriation' front In fact they're in the running for worst case ever So called 'eclectic witches' steal aspects of other religions and mythology They make it clear that they don't understand them or feel the need to before shitting in someone else's bed The publishersauthors then profit off this leaving the reader less smart and broke The living Venn diagram of demographics for these books would look like this She's a white American woman She dropped out of college to attend massagecosmetology school Growing up her strict parents took her to church every Sunday She kissed a girl 10 years ago and likes Katy Perry To uote Holden from Chasing Amy Over or underweight people who don't get laid they're our bread and butterThough a copypasta of it these books never tell you about hermeticism They don't prime you to understand hermeticism Hermeticism by the way is also total bullshit It is at least historic and seminal in almost all spooky fiction involving rituals or alchemyIf I give one of these books anything above 2 stars it's a decent example of this type of book It might have a redeeming feature like reference material for fictional world building Having worked in this field including sales of these exact books I can tell you the fix is in they know it don't buy this stuff

    This book is part of my studies and I have found my magickal calling Pow Wow is a tradition rich in practical application and a wonderful blend of any religious background you may be interested in I have throughly enjoyed practicing the techniues in this book and being part of the movement to keep this artform from dying out

    This book was interesting I think Silver Ravenwolf opened the door for further reading I disagree with her position of swapping Pow Wow ritualsspells to Wicca ritualspells How often have we heard grumbling from the pagan community about the Christian practice of creating their rituals from pagan roots I recommend The Red Church by C R Bilarfi to give understanding of Pow Wow
