Inside A Magical Lodge
Group Ritual in the Western Tradition
John Michael Greer
Published by Llewellyn
This is an excellent book. Instead of rehashing other people’s material, the author has focused on a much ignored topic – the framework of the magical lodge. The book goes through the structure, purpose and workings of a magical lodge in a concise and down-to-earth manner.
The author also goes step by step through the work needed to set up and maintain a magical lodge, from identity and requirements to aims and practices. All in all this book is well worth investing in if you have an interest in ritual magick and in the dynamics of a working magickal group.
I would recommend this book to anyone thinking of starting a magickal group, regardless of tradition – be it Thelema, Grimoires, or even the more structured Wiccan Covens!
