Overview

Waking up in Mictlan, the underworld entrance of the North, nearly dead from an evil witch’s attack—this is where James Endredy’s gripping true account of his experience with the witches of Veracruz begins. As the apprentice of a powerful curandero, or healer, Endredy learns the dangerous magic and mystical arts of brujería, a nearly extinct form of Aztec witchcraft, and his perilous training is fraught with spiritual trials and tests. Taught how to invoke spirits of the underworld for assistance and use dream trance to “fly,” Endredy is subjected to the black magic of a brujo negro and left alone in the graveyard of the brujo masters to fight for his life. He is also called upon to do battle with the most sinister of all witches—el Brujo de Muerte, the Witch of Death.

Upon becoming a curandero himself, Endredy takes on harrowing real-life cases: healing a young man possessed by the spirit of an Aztec warrior, rescuing a teenage girl from a Mexican drug cartel, and hunting down a vampire witch terrorizing a small community.

Meet the Author

James Endredy is a teacher, mentor, and guide to thousands of people through his books and workshops. After a series of life tragedies and mystical experiences as a teenager he changed direction from his
Catholic upbringing and embarked on a life-long spiritual journey to encounter the mysteries of life and death and why we are all here. For over twenty-five years he has learned shamanic practices from all over the globe, while also studying with kawiteros, lamas, siddhas, roadmen,
and leaders in the modern fields of ecopsychology, bioregionalism, and sustainable living. James also worked for ten years with Mexican shamanic researcher Victor Sanchez learning to share shamanic practices with modern people.

On a daily level, his experiences have inspired him to live a sustainable lifestyle as much as possible while still working within mainstream society. He writes, leads workshops, mentors private clients, visits schools and community centers, speaks at bookstores,
and volunteers in his community. His books have thus far been published in four languages and include Ecoshamanism, Shamanism for Beginners, and Beyond 2012.
