Advanced Candle Magick By Raymond Buckland- Book review

9781567181036-500x550

Buy Online


This book covers a wide variety of topics related to Candle Magick and, I feel, it is a great resource for any practitioner.

I highly recommend this for anyone who has some experience with Candle Magick, as well as those who may be newer to this type of work.

The book go into some of the basics of Magick, and other types of tools, right at the beginning. So if you are a beginner, don’t let the title intimidate you. There is plenty of information in the first few chapters to get you up to speed!

There are also few simple illustrations but they are well drawn and provide enough information to be useful.

From the web:

Seize control of your destiny with the simple but profound practice of Advanced Candle Magick. Ray Buckland’s first book on candle magick Practical Candleburning Rituals  explained the basic techniques of directing positive forces and  making things happen.
