Shadow magick occupies a critical role in the rich history of witchcraft, and it continues to draw strong interest from contemporary practitioners despite the limited information that is available. This book explores misunderstood topics such as ethically collecting and using animal parts and bones, blood magick, dark moon energy, hexing, scrying, dark deities, graveyard dirt, spells to assist the crossing of a dying loved one, and much more. With a strong focus on ethics, author Kate Freuler provides much-needed information and hands-on techniques to help you strengthen your life, connect to nature, protect yourself (and your kith and kin), and know yourself in a deep way.
"Witchcraft is not tame. We do a disservice to our craft in thinking so. Of Blood and Bone is an excellent introductory guide to exploring the depths of Withcraft and finding value in its darker side. Freuler leads readers through difficult topics in an approachable and authentic way. A good resource for anyone working with this side of magickal practice."—Stephanie Woodfield, author of Dark Goddess Craft
"Witches are light, dark, and everything in between. This impressive piece of work both guides and encourages modern Witches to reach into the deeper wisdom of their sacred hearts to uncover genuine healing and self-awareness. The book's original recipes, brilliant insights, and damn-potent spells can be utilized by occultists of all varieties. This is the real deal. Written with intelligence, integrity, and sincerity, Of Blood & Bones is a brave exploration into the beautiful shadowscape of magickal work and personal development."—Raven Digitalis, author of Shadow Magick Compendium & Esoteric Empathy
