Teen Spirit Wicca by David Salisbury
It’s time for a fresh approach to Teen Wicca, especially one written by someone who began to walk the Old Path as a teen, and now can look back on that experience as an adult. Young Wiccans will learn the fundamental tenets of Wiccan practice, guidance for rituals, and the full text of a self-dedication for those who wish to journey further. No longer should any teen Wiccan feel alone.
-Edain McCoy author of The Witch’s Coven and The Witch’s Moon
Teen Spirit Wicca will cut to the chase and give you just what you need to start practicing the Craft and living your life as a Wiccan today.
David Salisbury offers keen insight for teenagers wondering where to start and how to practice Wicca. I especially like his analysis of the Charge of the Goddess, one of my favorite pieces of pagan poetry—and one that is not well understood. Being a 20-something himself, and not so far from his own school days, the author has good advice on bullying, ethics, working around being a magical kid under someone else’s roof, and how to keep your balance in the middle of teenage energy.

Nature-based practices like Wicca and Witchcraft are exploding in popularity all over the world.

Some of the information on the Craft of the Wise can seem vast, overwhelming, and even a little boring. But have no fear!
