I love it! Another absolutely brilliant and soulful book from Orion. I feel that he not only gives the reader a lot of information on conjure practices but also uses this book to help interested practitioners bring their own spirituality into the practice by leading them through techniques and exercises designed to help them "get right" with their Spirit. I could however see how someone just looking for conjure techniques might think the book starts out slow because he does give a lot of depth and information on the culture conjure grew from. Personally I think this background is vital because it gives the reader an appreciate of why some associations are made and why some traditional practices are done the way they are done.more
