Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

"This book was written to be used in concert with whatever pagan tradition you are currently involved in. There are at least three levels to it: part one will help you strengthen the foundations of your spiritual practice, part two will ensure that you are sound in body, mind, emotion, sex, and spirit, and have developed will and ethics, and part three will lead you further into connection with your Godhood. . .The goal of the book is to help guide you through the stages of personal consciousness that will then enable you to step into inclusive consciousness -- a consciousness that encompasses the personal, political, environmental, social, mental,

and transpersonal. [It is this] inclusive consciousness [that] enables us to reach the limitless, the divine, Goddess or God."

Format: Paperback
I read Evolutionary Witchcraft about six years ago, give or take, and was kind of blown away at how direct and non-obfuscated it is in terms of explanation and philosophy and technique. It was really refreshing to read at a time when the market has been flooded (I won't say if that's good or bad, this flood of books, because they run such a gamut) with Witchy 101- and Wicca 101-type books. I got good practical knowledge out of it and still appreciate its directness.

I am finding I like Kissing the Limitless a lot better than Evolutionary Witchcraft, because it focuses on getting one's act together, in order to act more effectively. And it provides really practical approaches and techniques to doing just that. I have not quite finished this book yet, and actually intend after this initial read to go back and do the exercises chapter by chapter, at a workable pace. Coyle is really good with metaphors and analogies for describing the processes one goes through, including metaphors of the forge and metallurgy (which is very prescient if one's been reading a great deal about British Traditional Witchcraft, as I've been doing). She's also not afraid to mention Aleister Crowley as an influence (he sure is a polarizing hot potato), the materials she's drawn from Gurdjieff make me want to pick up Gurdjieff finally, because they're practical as all getout, and I sense Jung as influential as well.

Anyway, I am going to go out on a limb and say this book should be required reading for someone who wants to be a magic worker, or active witch or wiccan of various stripes. Or wort-cunner, or whathaveyou. If you are looking to learn to work effectively with energy, it is a good foundational book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you've read Thorn's first book - this is a totally different context and perspective. Anyone of any belief path that has an open mind and heart will find insights and inspiration from this book.

Thorn taught me to not "judge a book" by it's cover. Years ago I wrestled with purchasing her book because her personal appearance was that of a "wild woman" (laugh). Her writing drew me in and after months of avoiding purchasing her book, curiousity got the best of me.

This book is so filled with what I would call "Unlimited" perspectives - I call it POTU approved (Path of the Unlimited), my own brand of looking at life and Spirituality.

She shares her diverse life experiences with religions, meaning and spirituality - her path is probably similiar to many who are seeking and awakening. She doesn't polorize you to her point of view - instead she inspires you to find out more about YOU and your relationship with the divine.

This book belongs on any shelf in the book store that discusses religion, beliefs and spirituality.

I do have one complaint. It isn't available in hardcover. This is infomation that I would purchase in leather bound hardcover and special paper so that it could be part of my library that I pass on to future generations.

Many books are formulas and theories about connecting with the Divine; many are inspirational stories about who we "wish" we could connect with the Divine. This book is written by a fellow human being that lives that connection moment by moment, day by day. For me it was - recognition of another person who understands.

If you've studied world religions, both modern and ancient from around the world you'll recognize some blending of beautiful elements and practices.

Format: Paperback
Readers picking up Kissing the Limitless expecting lists of rituals and goal-specific spells written in the style of Feri tradition witchcraft will soon be disappointed, but its pages overflow with something far more valuable: Thorn's own strivings to deepen and expand her magical work, and the integrity and self-knowledge that such work has brought to her life, shine softly in every word. Each exercise she presents (in sections titled "Doing the Work") is embedded in thoughtful prose to provide context and insight into the practice. Discussions of ethics and theology impress upon the reader the importance of taking magic seriously, of acknowledging the power of self-awareness and self-possession to transform and create, and of cultivating a integrative attitude of love, gratitude and grace both towards that which is within and that which is beyond the individual. Exercises in "Reflection" invite the reader to engage in intense introspection, sifting through the unconscious to bring to light unacknowledged desires and fears and developing contemplative self-discipline, in order to prepare for "doing the work" of magical practice. At times, the line between "reflection" and "work" becomes blurry; simple rituals merge self-reflective musings with acts of will to manifest desires or articulate "inner demons."

Much of this work will sound familiar to those who have read about or practiced magic before. Some practices are occasional, designed to meet particular needs or round-out and strengthen certain areas of weakness ("Manifesting Home" and "Enspiriting Matter," for instance, are both incredibly useful exercises for connecting more deeply to domestic life and career choices).
