Contemplative Wicca is an exclusively contemplative practice of Wicca based on science, the concept of Oneness, and the traditional Wiccan veneration of nature. This book offers a contemplative, monotheistic, pagan theology, and provides a unique and forward-thinking theological viewpoint upon which to base spiritual practice, extending the current discussion of Wiccan practice and belief.

This book explores how Oneness provides the logical underpinning for contemplation and the spirit of unity which is so essential to healing society today. Little formal pagan theology has been done to date, and doing it is necessary to further interreligious dialogue and to establish paganism in general and Wicca in particular as legitimate religions. This book is intended to remedy this lack, and contribute to the discussion of Wicca among pagan scholars and serious practitioners who may be seeking to incorporate contemplative ideas and meanings into their work and the construction of their faith.

Reviews and Endorsements

‘Teresa Chupp has produced an immensely useful contribution both to Witchcraft and to Neopagan and Wiccan studies by constructing this insightful work ... Contemplative Wicca provides stimulating reading for connecting with vital elements of spirituality – one that is specifically Wiccan yet innovative in theological theory and contemplative practice.’
- The Rev. James F. Lawrence, D.Min., Core Doctoral Faculty, Graduate Theological Union

‘A well researched, rich and a multi-layered body of work that opens the door for dialogue, contemplation and growth. Throughout the entire manuscript the author continually turns the lens both inward and outward. Her unique focus creates a stable bridge between the internal and external on both a personal and global level. It also creates a pathway to other faiths that supports sharing and learning.’
- Patricia Busbee, Blue Hand Books

‘Teresa Chupp offers significant insights into both the positive potential and problems of blending of Wiccan belief and practice with individual contemplation.’
- Professor Constance Wise, Metropolitan State University of Denver

‘This work emphasizes the importance of theology, spirituality that integrates science with religion, and charitable service to the larger community.’
- Michael York, Cherry Hill Seminary
