From Library Journal
Abelar presents a fascinating personal account of her initiation into the world of sorcery. Although sorcery has negative connotations, her activities involve spiritual growth and personal empowerment rather than black magic. The author receives training in Mexico by a group of teachers connected with Don Juan Matus, the mentor of Carlos Castaneda. Under their guidance she learns various breathing, movement, and contemplative techniques. Her goal is enhanced perception and ultimately a shift in awareness from the concrete to the abstract. The author's struggle to overcome inner resistance and her efforts to understand abstract concepts are miraculously detailed. The book holds one's interest throughout and should be a useful addition to library collections on personal growth and women's spirituality .
