From Publishers Weekly
Much as the martial arts incorporate Buddhism and Confucianism, Cuhulain strives to incorporate various Wiccan philosophies into the "Warrior tradition." Cuhulain, a police officer, former Air Force officer and influential Wiccan practitioner, explores everything from the historical warrior tradition discussed by Sun Tzu to the philosophical musings of Carlos Castaneda's Don Juan Matus. Although the book is written for the practicing Pagan, much of it is bound to make more traditional Wiccan readers uncomfortable. Cuhulain makes it quite clear that "Wiccan Warriors think for themselves. They eliminate useless habits and routines. They are not fettered by dogma." Dogma includes following practices based on Judeo-Christian roots or following "traditional" rituals from popular Wiccan books. Cuhulain painstakingly documents the origins and histories of several oft-used rituals in an effort to encourage creativity and imagination among Covens. He encourages the use of chi (the energy force of tai chi), meditation, and music. Non-Pagan readers will find the Warrior qualities Cuhulain discusses throughout the book fairly interesting, but the real story for them will be the glimpse into the struggles and differing philosophies of a very private community.

 

 

We all have archetypes we model ourselves upon. In the Wiccan community these include Maiden, Healer, Mother, Bard, and others. In Wiccan Warrior by Kerr Cuhulain, you will learn of eight new yet traditional archetypes that Wiccans can model their lives and goals upon. You'll also find that they are completely appropriate for any person following a spiritual system.

These eight are:

  • The Balanced Warrior, for whom all comes from the Divine and must be treated as such.
  • The Creative Warrior, who masters myths and can use them to share wisdom.
  • The Rational Warrior, who avoids all types of fundamentalism.
  • The Energized Warrior, who can raise and direct energy. You'll learn to do this with toning, mantras, dance and drumming.
  • The Dreaming Warrior, who knows how to alter consciousness. Here you will learn meditation, concentration and breathwork.
  • The Magickal Warrior, who knows and can do magick.
  • The Ritual Warrior, who helps revitalize rituals with knowledge, understanding, energy and love.
  • The Initiated Warrior, who knows and shares the value of true initiation.

    There are five cornerstones to the magick of being a Wiccan Warrior. These are the well-known To Dare, To Will, To Know and To Keep Silent. To these Cuhulain adds To Imagine. For "to imagine is to be able to clearly visualize your objective, to develop and use a creative imagination." The book is filled with ideas and insights that will guide you on your way to becoming a true Wiccan Warrior, a person freed from limitations.

    This book is a must for Wiccan and Witches of all stripes. If one of the Warrior archetypes doesn't fit your needs, another (or several others) will. People who are not Wiccans will find much to admire and make use of, too.
