In this installment of Discovering Witchcraft Janet and Stewart Farrar and Gavin Bone take the viewer through explanations of what Magic and Wicca really are. Beliefs of the Pagan and Wiccan practices are revealed. Guidance for the new practitioners is given and some of the items covered are the Priesthood of the covens, The Book of Shadows, and the Circle. The mysteries discussed are the cycles of birth and re-birth and the descent in darkness and the ascent into light. The use of the Witches Book of Shadows and its chronological beginnings is discussed at great length. A practice used by a High Priestess to make possible the unification with the Goddess during the Drawing Down the Moon is shown.
