Hi! I’ve been a practicing witch for a little over a decade but I’ve been neglecting my craft for the past couple of years. I want to go through a workbook to get the wheels turning again and also to have a bit of structure getting back into things. Of course “Buckland’s Complete Book of Witchcraft” (or Big Blue) is a classic, but I’ve heard it’s based quite a bit in Wicca. Is there anything similar out there that is more so based in Traditional Witchcraft? I don’t mind going over basics again, but it’s not necessary for me either. Thank you!

Given that Buckland was a Gardnerian HP and the founder of Seax-Wica, yeah it is. It’s also still a great book for learning ritual structure.
Yousy want to look into Psychic Witch by Mat Auryn. It’s an excellent workbook.

I highly recommend The Crooked Path by Kelden, I’m currently working through it and I’m really enjoying it. I was wiccan for years, but it came to a point where I realized it wasn’t for me. The Crooked Path contains similarities to wicca in a lot of ways, but it’s also open and adaptable for you to take what you want and leave what you don’t.
