NEW BOOK: ESOTERIC EMPATHY: A Magickal & Metaphysical Guide to Emotional Sensitivity
(released on Llewellyn in WINTER 2016)
While traditional psychics receive mental impressions, empaths naturally have their emotional receptors turned on high. Empathy can give rise to profound healing, love, and spiritual and magickal progression — or, if left uncontrolled, it can be a painful experience of emotional overload. Esoteric Empathy teaches readers the ins and outs of empathy and encourages self-awareness through meditation, rituals, and other proactive exercises.
This highly accessible book is essential for those whose emotions fuel their spirituality. Whether you experience empathy on a regular basis or simply want to know more about this fascinating topic, this book provides much-needed answers about the emotional abilities that are ushering our species into a new phase of conscious evolution.

Goth Craft: The Magickal Side of Dark Culture (Llewellyn Worldwide)
Raven Digitalis explores the dynamic intersection of dark culture and occultism in Goth Craft. The book introduces many kinds of Goths and Witches, and the philosophy of each.
