Contemplative Wicca provides an exclusively contemplative practice of Wicca based on science, the concept of Oneness, and the traditional Wiccan veneration of nature. It offers a monotheistic, pagan theology and a unique and forward-thinking viewpoint on which to base spiritual practice, extending the current discussion of Wiccan custom and belief.
This book explores how Oneness provides the logical underpinning for contemplation and the spirit of unity, which is so essential to healing society today. Little formal pagan theology has been done to date, and doing it is necessary to further interreligious dialog and to establish paganism in general and Wicca in particular as legitimate religions. This book is intended to remedy this lack and contribute to the discussion of Wicca among pagan scholars and serious practitioners who may be seeking to incorporate contemplative ideas into their work and the construction of their faith.
