It also demonstrates how magic can help us live much more successful and satisfying lives. Vivianne Crowley weaves into the text her own personal story and experience of magic. At the age of 19 she was initiated into Wicca and at 20 into a Kabbalistic magical lodge. Since then she has trained hundreds of people in the techniques of contemporary magic.
