THE PHILOSOPHY OF DARK PAGANISM: 

Wisdom & Magick to Cultivate the Self 

by Frater Tenebris, and John J. Coughlin  (Foreword) 

Publisher ‏ : ‎ Llewellyn Publications (October 8, 2022)

Paperback ‏ : ‎ 302 pages

List Price: $21.99 


FROM THE PUBLISHER: 

Discover a New, Life-Changing Spiritual Paradigm~


Look inward. Explore the shadows. Honor your Divine Self and elevate it to a higher state of being. 


Frater Tenebris introduces you to Dark Paganism, a deeply personal and individualized philosophy that focuses on transformation and shadow work. He guides you through the nine Dark Pagan principles, which help you develop a version of yourself flourishing in all that you do. Ranging from self-knowledge and acceptance to magick and environmental mastery, the Dark Pagan principles show how to build confidence, trust yourself, and create a meaningful life. You'll also delve into Dark Pagan ethics and how to improve your relationships and community by knowing yourself better. Featuring detailed research and self-reflection questions for each chapter, this book supports your journey of personal evolution.


Includes a foreword by John J. Coughlin, author of Out of the Shadows


Review:

"Before embarking on any spiritual path, a seeker must understand the foundation upon which their practice is built. The Philosophy of Dark Paganism draws upon the wisdom of experts past and present to create an extensively researched exploration into the why and how of dark Paganism. Frater Tenebris dissects this controversial and mostly secret philosophy layer by layer, providing a solid framework for beginner and seasoned Pagans. A lifetime of deep study and experience is condensed into this work, making it a valuable source of knowledge and a useful learning resource."―Kat Freuler, author of Of Blood and Bones


"Differing from 'black' magick or baneful sorcery, this deeply intelligent and honest book explores darker magickal elements through a lens of Neopaganism. Focused on self-development by way of shadow, the reader is given an opportunity to cohesively improve themselves and search for life's greater purpose. I have never experienced a book like this. It is packed to the brim with educational references and citations, all of which boil down to a metaphysical perspective. The author's refreshing approach encompasses solid academic history and philosophy alongside practical theory aimed toward self-empowerment. The shroud of darkness is enchanting...why not take a peek?"―Raven Digitalis, author of Shadow Magick Compendium and Esoteric Empathy


"Frater Tenebris sheds fresh light (yes, pun intended) into Dark Paganism. This book is both a comparative work of the early influencers of the Dark Paganism movement as well as a well-crafted personal exploration into the subject, making this an ideal modern reference guide for those struggling to find their own unique balance."―John J. Coughlin, author of Out of the Shadows


About the Author: 

Frater Tenebris is a public speaker, blogger, personal philosopher, and practitioner of Dark Paganism. He's a member of the Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans (CUUPS) and the Tsubaki Grand Shrine of America. He lives in a quiet neighborhood in a Texas suburb with his wife and two dogs.


John J. Coughlin, often considered the Father of Dark Paganism, has been a practitioner of the occult arts since the mid-1980s. He is the author of multiple books, including Out of the Shadows (Waning Moon Publications, 2015), and he founded and edited the NYC Pagan Resource Guide, which served the New York tri-state area for fifteen years between 1996 and 2011.

A WITCH'S GUIDE TO CRAFTING YOUR PRACTICE: 

Create a Magical Path that Works for You 

by Lisa McSherry

Publisher ‏ : ‎ Llewellyn Publications (October 8, 2022)

Paperback ‏ : ‎ 248 pages   

List Price: $18.99 


FROM THE PUBLISHER: 

Customize Your Magical Path with Time-Tested, Practical Lessons~


Build a unique practice that fits you to a T with Lisa McSherry's self-paced guide to the fundamentals of witchcraft. Presenting a progressive series of lessons with real-world results, Lisa helps you truly connect with each topic. From creating an altar and Book of Shadows to performing rituals and developing psychic abilities, this book gives you the foundation needed to start and grow your personal path. Unlike other introductions to magic, this book presents concrete analyses of each topic as well as interludes that use related activities to map out your own practice. Lisa has effectively taught and refined this approach for decades, and now she shares it with you.


Review:

"McSherry makes some of the most complex aspects of American eclectic Wicca practice accessible and understandable, all while providing a much-needed update on aspects of the practice. She unchains energy polarity from the limited in concept of gender, explains what a Book of Shadows actually does for a practitioner, and for theists, shows how deity relationships function in a cooperative manner. This book is a wonderful inclusive, and academically anchored approach to Wicca that allows beginners to engage with clarity."―Diana Rajchel, author of Hex Twisting

LESSONS FROM THE EMPRESS: 

A Tarot Workbook for Self-Care and Creative Growth

by Cassandra Snow, Siri Vincent Plouff , Lisa Marie Basile (Foreword) 

Publisher ‏ : ‎ Weiser Books; Workbook edition (October 1, 2022)

Paperback ‏ : ‎ 224 pages 

List Price: $16.95 


FROM THE PUBLISHER: 

Lessons from the Empress offers a hands-on guidebook to better mental and spiritual wellness. When the world needs these lessons the most, Snow and Plouff come through for us all.” —Benebell Wen, author of Holistic Tarot

 

The Empress tarot card is the key to understanding how creative expression is the foundation of true self-care. Our authentic self, this abundant space, is not something we go find—it’s something we create. 


Lessons from the Empress will guide you on an exploration of the five phases of self-care: 

Major Arcana—spiritual self-care; the Wands—self-awareness; 

the Swords—self-expression; 

the Cups—self-love; 

the Pentacles—self-confidence.

 

In Lessons from the Empress, with the Empress as your guide, you’ll learn how to practice self-care and self-discovery in several ways:

  • See the Empress as a metaphor for your personal journey
  • Get in touch with who you are at your core
  • Take an active role in protecting your own well-being and happiness
  • Use easy-to-follow magical rituals, tarot spreads, and creativity exercises to embrace your true self and express that self to the world

Reviews

“Lessons from the Empress calls to the part of us that we are so often told to shut off and tidy up and suppress. It asks us to arrange a bed of flowers. It asks us to breathe in the color and speak in music. What Plouff and Snow have done in this book is forged a candle-lit pathway — accessible and encouraging, inclusive and actionable — that you can call your own. It balances instruction with reader autonomy. Its beauty is found in its absolute devotion to the creative spirit, welcoming interpretation and self-dialogue, and creating confidence through your journey.” —Lisa Marie Basile, author of Light Magic for Dark Times, City Witchery, and The Magical Writing Grimoire ―

FROM THE PUBLISHER: 

The Death Doula Oracle deck is designed to promote mystical | spiritual experiences in all its users at any stage of their life, guiding the reader down a path of healing, self-discovery & rebirth. 


The Death Doula Oracle has been influenced by the teachings of a wide variety of spiritual & mental health practices, incorporating the art of astrology, spiritual alchemy, & mysticism into the culture within the cards. 



This deck becomes your personal doula and guide, gently aiding your spiritual unfoldment, revealing your truest self while giving you the tools to live and die with grace. Includes 56 cards (with gold edges), instruction book of rituals, practices, meditations & more, all aimed at getting you further in touch with your creativity, intuition, inner tranquility, mental acuity, & personal sense of curiosity for the world.


Similar to a tarot deck, an oracle deck is a collection of cards that provide guidance and perspective on our lived experience. But while tarot decks tend to follow a specific structure — oracle decks can be more loose and interpretive.


This deck is designed to enrich the life of its reader at any stage of their journey, deepening their connection to the infinite through promoting a life worth living.


For those beginning their spiritual journey, or those who wish to maintain alignment with their innate divine spark, this deck is for you.



This oracle deck is as hands on as the reader chooses. Each card is accompanied by a thought provoking prompt and an optional exercise (mental and/or physical) that pertains to the card you pulled. The exercises promote healing, growth, and knowledge of self. The book is beginner friendly, leaving a trail of esoteric bread crumbs for anyone to follow as far as their curiosity and thirst for self-knowledge will allow.


The Death Doula Oracle deck is meant to aid its reader in their own death and rebirth process (that is ever unfolding and repeating) through engaging the subconscious, captivating the imagination and facilitating spiritual/mystical experiences at the readers own pace. 


This deck is intended for anyone at any stage of their spiritual development with the intent to enrich the rest of their life with hands on mystical experiences brought about by use of the deck.



All of the photography on the cards is shot on 35mm film, using double and triple exposure techniques, captured and created in the camera without photoshop. Each photo is highly intentional and the artist often considers the images little talismans constructed in the camera. 


For those looking to enrich their spiritual practices and encourage an awakening within themselves, this deck is designed for you.

WILD WOMAN ORACLE: 

Awaken Your True, Free and Soulful Self 

(44 cards with gilded edges and 144-page book) 

by Cheyenne Zarate 


List Price: $24.95 (Rockpool Publishing)


FROM THE PUBLISHER:

Inspired by the classic Women Who Run with the Wolves, this deck is designed for women experiencing their Saturn Return— a time of personal intensity and change.


The essence of the Wild Woman Oracle is feminine, dark, witchy, wise, mystical, spiritual, whimsical, authentic, educational, and empowering.


Through mythological, folkloric, and contemporary tales about empowering female figures who embody the Wild Woman in their own unique ways, the Wild Woman Oracle will awaken you to your true, free, and soulful Self. These Wild Women's stories—the losses, victories, and lessons learned—will help you begin to rewrite your own story. You will see how all your life experiences –especially the difficult, dark, and uncertain ones—are alchemizing into gold, into the invaluable wisdom, fierce self-respect, and keen joie de vivre of the Wild Woman.


The images on the 44 cards depict strong feminine figures from mythology, folklore, and contemporary culture—all women who faced their own struggles and victories, and whose example will inspire others to discover their true self. The artwork was created in pen and pencil and reproduced in shades of black printed with bronze metallic ink to enhance their dark and mystical feel.




About the Author:

Cheyenne Zarate is a pen and ink artist from Toronto, Canada, who is of Chilean, Ukrainian, and Scottish descent. She graduated from the University of Toronto with a bachelor's degree in English and Spanish, then went on to complete a Bachelor of Education at Toronto's York University to become a teacher.
