DOREEN VALIENTE WITCHCRAFT FOR TOMORROW PDF

Start your review of Witchcraft for Tomorrow Write a review Jul 18, Erik Akre rated it liked it Recommends it for: Wiccans looking for something more sophisticated; would-be-Wiccans; those interested in the religion Shelves: religion , wicca , history Witchcraft for Tomorrow is based on British traditions not my strong interest ; and this is definitely a British book. But regardless of my North American bias, I am happy to have read this. What I liked very, very much was the style and sophistication with which Valiente writes. Perhaps it might sadden us to see the Witchcraft for Tomorrow is based on British traditions not my strong interest ; and this is definitely a British book. I like the new stuff, but I like it like candy In any case, read this for a thorough exposition of Wicca, for folk-stories and lore, for good ritual poetry, for ethical discussions, for spells and Wiccan materials.

Patti Wigington Updated August 02, If Gerald Gardner is the father of the modern witchcraft movement, then certainly Doreen Valiente is the mother of many witchcraft traditions. Like Gardner, Doreen Valiente was born in England. Although not much is known about her early years, her website maintained by her estate verifies that she was born Doreen Edith Dominy in London in As a teen, Doreen lived in the New Forest area, and it is believed that this is when she began experimenting with magic.

When she was thirty, Doreen was introduced to Gerald Gardner. By this time, she had been married twice - her first husband died at sea, her second was Casimiro Valiente - and in , she was initiate d into the New Forest coven of witches. Over the next several years, Doreen worked with Gardner in expanding and developing his Book of Shadows , which he claimed was based on ancient documents passed down through the ages.

Unfortunately, much of what Gardner had at the time was fragmented and disorganized. In addition to finishing things up, she added her poetic gifts to the process, and the end result was a collection of rituals and ceremonies which are both beautiful and workable - and the foundation for much of modern Wicca, some sixty years later.

At any rate, they later reconciled and worked together once more. In the s, Doreen moved away from Gardnerian Wicca and was initiated into a traditional British witchcraft coven. Doreen may well be best known for her incredibly evocative poetry, much of which has found its way into the lexicon of modern ritual format, both for Wiccans and other Pagans.

Her Charge of the Goddess is a powerful call to invoke the Divine within us. The Wiccan Rede is often attributed to Doreen as well. Although the Rede is typically summarized in brief as An it harm none, do what ye will, there is actually quite a bit more to the original work. Near the end of her life, Doreen was concerned about the many misconceptions about modern witchcraft, as well as the wide distortions of original teachings.

She became patron of the Centre for Pagan Studies , described as "offering a facility for learned research and a non commercial environment.

Famous Witches – Doreen Valiente (1922 – 1999)

She co-wrote with Gardner many of the basic rituals and other materials that helped to change and shape contemporary witchcraft and Wicca. Unlike Gardner , however, she generally shunned publicity, believing that a certain amount of secrecy on the part of covens should and ought to be maintained. She also came to believe that the future of Paganism and Neopaganism lies in feminism and environmentalism. Born Doreen Edith Dominy in south London on 4 January , the daughter of staunchly Christian parents, the young Doreen was convinced from an early age that she possessed the power to use magic. She experienced her first spiritual contact while gazing at the moon when she was just seven years old and, at the age of thirteen, began to experiment with simple magic. Her devoutly Christian family were far from happy with her early spells and sent her away to a convent school, but she walked out of the convent when she was fifteen and refused ever to return. As time went by, she became more aware of her own psychic abilities and began to read and study all the occult material she could lay her hands on, including the works of Charles Godfrey Leland , Aleister Crowley and Margaret Murray whom she particularly admired.
