Yvonne Aburrow’s All Acts of Love and Pleasure: Inclusive Wicca is a greatly needed book for any group. Though the book is written for Wicca by a Gardnerian Wiccan, the book is important for any group of witches that work together. Written with covens and groups in mind, the book addresses many changes regarding diversity within the modern Craft. Aburrow asserts that Wicca should be inclusive regardless of gender, sexuality, and mobility.
She writes that “Different people have different experiences, expectations, and perspectives, and including and working with different ideas and experiences can only enrich our Craft, not detract from it.” Instead of ignoring or erasing the differences of others, the book aims to explore methods of working with these differences. As such she provides ideas, practices, meditations, and queer myths to create a more inclusive group dynamic or to adapt workings when needed.
The title of the book takes its title from “…for behold, all acts of love and pleasure are my rituals,” as is stated by the Goddess in the Charge. As such, this book is written in the spirit of the Goddess, Mother of All and not some, surpassing all man-made trappings of rules placed within the Craft. The book is perfect for anyone who wants a non-binary perspective of Wicca, and anyone in a leadership role within Paganism.
