“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
