Summary

The Witch's Path is all about taking your witchcraft practice to the next level-whether you're a beginner who feels overwhelmed, a disillusioned adept, a jaded coven leader, or anyone in between. This book shares specific, hands-on tips for what you can do to move forward spiritually today, no matter what your starting point.

You will discover tips and advice for cultivating a sense of serious play, setting effective goals for spellwork, creating an altar, joining or leading events, and much more.

Lots of excellent points

This is my second listen and I also have purchased the paperback version. Needless to say that I love it. It picks up witches at exactly where they are on their journey and helps them to deepen their craft. And although the author is wiccan herself, she does a good job at keeping the book accessible non-wiccan witches too.

The narrator has a pleasant voice and does an excellent job of switching tone for different passages.

Excellent witchcraft book

I wish they'd got Thorne to read the book herself. The reader is very emphatic and the first person, anecdotal style feels less authentic performed by someone else.
That said, if you are looking for a witchcraft book, this is really excellent. I'll be buying the physical copy too to better access all the tasks and journal prompts which I did not do on this first listen through.

Troubleshoot Your Craft

I really enjoyed Thorn Mooney’s first book Traditional Wicca, but I absolutely love The Witch’s Path. Mooney has such a friendly, approachable, relatable, and charming writing style, which I greatly admire. While seekers and beginners can enjoy this book and get a lot out of it, I feel it’s ideally more suitable for someone already on the path of witchcraft that has found themselves in a rut or overwhelmed with difficulties within the witchcraft and pagan community. Anyone who has been practicing witchcraft for years with seriousness is bound to find themselves feeling uninspired, burned out, and unconnected from their Craft at some point on the path. With complete transparency, Mooney shares her struggles with this and, more importantly, provides insight into how she overcame it in hopes that you can too, when you are up against these roadblocks.


Regardless of whether you view your Craft as spirituality or religion, The Witch’s Path shows that there is indeed depth to the Craft. To discover these answers, Mooney shows that this depth and “advanced” witchcraft is there if we are earnestly looking for it. She encourages us to approach this path with reverence regardless of if we relate to it as a religion or spirituality, not treat it as something to dabble in with the sole intent of self-service or as an aesthetic to serve our egos while also suggesting we keep it in balance with not overextending ourselves to others to our own detriment. This book is inspiring, honest, and level-headed while remaining supportive, understanding, and urging the reader to discover their own answers without ever being condescending.

The Witch’s Path isn’t a book of just spells and rituals. This is a book about reigniting the spark, passion, enthusiasm, connection, and awe of a witch’s Craft - which is much more crucial if we are going to have our magick and spellcasting be effective and treat this as our spiritual life path. You aren’t necessarily getting training on “how to be a witch” or “how to cast spells.” What you are getting is something much more valuable, the wisdom of years of experience of a sincere practitioner within the Craft regarding some of the most difficult challenges the witch is bound to confront, which is rarely if ever discussed in other books. I don’t see eye to eye with every witchcraft book, though I can appreciate and find stuff that I can resonate with inside almost all of them. That being said, I’m amazed by how similar Mooney’s perspectives on most topics within the book are to my own, which I feel can often be rare for me. This book is definitely a great addition to my library, and I’m sure it’s one I will come back to re-read periodically.

good advice for any path

even after 45 years of practice I find practical advice in the book. I think any practitioner from any path of magickal practice will find something useful in this book.

A book worth multiple reads

Because I’ve had trouble getting my hands on a physical copy of the book, I figured it was worth a try listening to it. There are so many amazing points and exercises that I would love to go back to. And some chapters I really want to take my time on. Thorn has such a unique writing style, intellectual but also down to earth. This is absolutely a book worth reading, listening to, and savoring in its various forms!

Stunning and informative

I am a newbie to this path, and have been searching for a book that isn’t just spells cover to cover that can actually give me insight into the path I’m leading. A fantastic read with lots of detailed notes and encouragements. Will pick up a hard copy for the activities.

Get the actual book

The content of this book is fantastic. The narration of this book… not so much. I love Thorn and I dream of the day she will someday read her own books to us, on Audible.

I found the narrator of her first book to be quite irritating and was so happy to see this one had someone else doing the reading. As hope springs eternal, I believed this one HAD to be better. Ooooooohhhh, I was so wrong. Inflection, attitude, pronunciation, cadence. All are SO off, throughout this recording.

I will read this book, over an over. But I will definitely not listen to it, again, in its present form.

Please, Thorn, pleeeeeeaaaaase oh please re-record your books for us. Hell, I’d spend 2 credits each, to buy them again, if you did!

Audible, please do better.

Thoroughly enjoyed this one!

I just started listening last night. The Witch's Path immediately put a smile on my face and a twinkle in my eyes. The entire time I was listening to it my head was nodding up and down like a bobble head doll. I've been on the path for 25 years now and found this book to be real and refreshing! if you are already a practicing Witch or Wiccan you'll be able to relate to it as well. if you are just starting out, it offers excellent information to help you establish a foundation for your path. Highly recommended!

This is one of the most important book about witchcraft I’ve ever bought. I wish I would have found it sooner.

Absolutely loved it!

The book is very relatable and is written in a way that beginners and advanced practitioners alike can understand it. I enjoyed hearing about the authors personal struggles and revelations on her journey through her craft.

Excellent Resource

I’ve read several books about witchcraft. This book is the most practical and real. The principles that Thorn Mooney presents are applicable to life in general. I wish a PDF came along with the audio version so I could remember the exercises.

The narration was good, but not excellent. Lacking in emotion made it difficult to connect at times, but easy to understand and also paced well.
