Review by Lee Prosser - email@example.com
Christopher Penczak is an eclectic Witch and is the author of many writings, including The Inner Temple of Witchcraft and the popular Instant Magic.
In The Mystic Foundation, Penczak continues his scholarly research and shares the practical hands-on approaches with the readers. Accurate, and concise, the book sparkles with gems of thought that are useful. It is an enjoyable book to read.
What is very important about this book is the logical manner in which Penczak covers both mystical and metaphysical traditions, separating fact from fiction, and separating accuracy from hearsay so the truth is revealed in a straight-forward approach. A wide range of beliefs are covered, and analyzed so the reader understands the roots of each belief. The chapters are well-arranged. Among the many important topics covered in-depth are the powers of creation, the elements, fundamental forces within us, subtle anatomy, exploring the universe, shamanic worlds, seven layers of reality, the mystical Tree of Life, entities of spirit, spirit talk, sacred space, sacred time, developing intuition, psychic development, exploring the paths, picking the paths, and exercises for achieving personal goals.
This book should have a wide reading appeal for all groups. Well-written, it is a reading pleasure. Highly educational, and practical!
