"Dancing with Witches" answers questions which have puzzled followers of witchcraft for a generation. In particular, Lois Bourne's close friendship with the enigmatic Gerald Gardner enables her to shed light on the man widely regarded as the instigator of the modern revival of the witch cult. She writes of her first encounter with him and their years of friendship and co-operation. This led to her meeting a traditional witch and eventual initiation into a coven of witches with an uninterrupted history of 200 years. Witchcraft is as old as time, but few really know what it consists of beyond magic, spells and enchantment. Above all, though it is the renewal of an ancient tradition and this revealing book describes the practices of the religion and details of the training received by the author. Featured, too, are many witches encountered over a lifetime who contributed to Lois Bourne's unique knowledge of the occult and mystical worlds. For nearly fifty years, Lois Bourne has been the leader of a coven of witches who follow the Old Religion, which acknowledges the gods of Nature and seeks to transform and evolve the spiritual aspect of life.Encapsulated also in this memorable book are the author's unusual experiences in voodoo and obeah.
