Reclaim Control of Your Magic and Your Life

Transcend Your Limitations and Enter the Pyramid of Light and the Labyrinth of Darkness

Devin Hunter, author of groundbreaking works The Witch's Book of Power and The Witch's Book of Spirits, makes a powerful statement on how you can deepen your Witch Power and further develop your relationships with familiars, guides, spirits, and gods. The Witch's Book of Mysteries invites you to embark on a pivotal journey designed to help break you free of the illusory cultural energies that hold you back from true magical vitality.

With spells and rituals drawn from the author's own book of shadows, this book explores energetic self-orientation, the Witch's Eye, and the Witch's Tree—techniques that will support and embolden you on your quest to achieve personal gnosis. Learn the extraordinary practices of the Witch's Dream and the Witch's Sabbat, and initiate into the mysteries of the Cosmic Grigori, primordial guardians of space, time, matter, energy, and quintessence. Ultimately, the path of the witch takes you to the six gates of the Labyrinth of Diana. Through these gates, the authentic nature of the soul is found and God Herself is revealed.
