PSSST — Wanna know a secret? It’s not posted anywhere else! ;) … Forthcoming: LLEWELLYN’S LITTLE BOOK OF EMPATHY by Raven Digitalis (Spring, 2019) !

ESOTERIC EMPATHY: A Magickal & Metaphysical Guide to Emotional Sensitivity

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.


Planetary Spells & Rituals: Practicing Dark & Light Magick Aligned with the Cosmic Bodies
(Llewellyn Worldwide)

Organized by the planets (including Earth, Sun, and Moon), these powerful spells are aligned according to astrological energies. This includes 55 significant rituals that can be easily customized according to one’s magickal and spiritual path. From personal growth to practical concerns, you’ll find numerous workings, including the following: Glamoury, healing childhood wounds, exorcism of a house or property, revealing truth, divination magick, halting gossip, safety in travel, summoning love (from inside and out), mending quarrels, banishing heartache, physical healing, etheric cleansing, grounding, breaking addictions, cursing a violator, releasing anger, cord-cutting, breaking through stagnation and sorrow, drawing abundance, croning and saging (Second Saturn Return), summoning the ancestors, guiding the dead and dying, averting the evil eye, uncrossing and curse-breaking, weather magick, psychic work, prophetic dreaming, scrying, binding, past-life regression, ritual death, and spiritual rebirth.

Shadow Magick Compendium: Exploring Darker Aspects of Magickal Spirituality
(Llewellyn Worldwide)

Exploring the shadow in its variety of forms is not only safe, but is necessary for balance and healing. Raven Digitalis invites you to navigate inner and outer darkness and harness the shadow for spiritual growth. Shadow Magick Compendium includes ritual meditations for exploring past experiences, dispelling harmful behavior patterns, and healing a fractured soul. Learn how to safely perform fasting and other methods of self-sacrifice, learn about cross-cultural mysticism, get in touch with your spirit animal, take advantage of the dark moon and eclipses, and learn the history of the European Witch hunts. Discover methods of godform assumption, shamanic journeying, and the magick of the dying season. From astral journeying to sigils to dark herbs, you’ll find an array of magickal techniques to navigate the shadows and mysteries of yourself and the world at large.


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. It covers the basics of magick and beyond, with special attention to blood magick, death magick, and necromancy. You’ll also learn how to proactively channel dark emotions, and express spirituality through clothing, hair, makeup and body modification. Also covered is vampyrism, BDSM, gender/sexuality issues, and spiritual uses of drugs. From working shadow magick to spellcasting on the dance floor, Goth Craft revels in the exciting convergence of two vital lifestyles.

  4. Djedereshotep says:

    Amazing work..I have both Gothcraft and the Shadow Magick Compendium and recently ordered your Planetary Spells and Rituals. I have practiced the Craft for more than 20 years and I love your writing style and your courage not many can write about nor do they know what they are writing about in regards to Shadow Magick or the Dark Mother. I have been Hemet Djedreshotep Sat Tehuti, sat iset for several years know and felt the “call” to explore the darker aspects…I have had some very scary and some very humorous experiences…and no matter what hey say Baba Yaga DOES have a humorous side. Good luck in all you do! hopefully we can correspond at some point.

    I think that Goth Craft was a great piece of literature. It is what helped me make the decision to switch to Paganism.

  18. Dark One says:

  19. Calantirniel says:

    Shadow Magick Compendium is AMAZING!! I haven’t finished reading it yet, and I can tell you the first chapter even has a lot of depth and substance! WAY TO GO!!! Love you Raven!


    P.S. I announced your book for you on PaganSpace! ;-)

  20. Rhian says:

    hey raven! love Shadow Magick Compendium it’s so awesome!!!!! keep up the good work! i like pre-ordering your stuff. it’s so much easier and i don’t have to go hunting in the bookstore for your books!

  21. MidnightRaven says:

    I just wanted to say that your Goth Craft book is something that I never expected. It was both interesting and elegantly written, I’ve been goth for a while now and well I’ll say I’ve learned more from your book than by hanging around quote on quote Goths. It turns out that all they were was mall rats “Poser Goths” . Your book makes me want to learn all I can about Goth-ism and all its uniqueness! I would very much like to chat with you online if at all possible. All in all I wanted to say thank you and please continue writing your an inspiration to many people of the Gothic, pagan and goth-pagan followers.

    Sincerely, MidnightRaven

    Dearest Raven,

    From the bottom of my heart I thankyou for the beautifully written Goth Craft book. I managed to find it in a bookshop in the UK, and haven’t been able to put it down for months! When I shared the words with my closest friends they all felt blessed by your words.
    As you already know, Goth culture isn’t as massive in the UK as it is in the US, and is almost certainly frowned upon by a majority of the “normal” people in today’s society. Your words have helped us find a little hope, I humbly extend my gratitude for that.
    If you would permit, I would love to write a more detailed letter, and send it through the mail.

    Many blessings,

    Natasha, 19, UK.

  23. Winterborn Dragon says:

    I was first introduced to shadow magick at the school I attend. I am glad you have a book on it because I think I am going to study more on the subject

  24. Krystin says:

    hey wats up? yea im a teen but i loved reading your book it made me think. a lot of my friends want to read it too. its amzing how one book can become so popular. and make someone so popular.

  25. Jesse Rachman says:

    Great work!

  26. Surreal says:

    In my family the practice of Craft is forbidden. When I read ‘Goth Craft’ I was so happy to find a book that didn’t put so much emphasis on materials. This book inspired more than you could ever know. Thanks.

  27. Black Rose says:

    I have just recently bought the Goth Craft book and I have to say, when I went to the book store, I wasn’t planning on finding something so interesting, but I have been finding really good books recently. I have always been into the goth stuff. Some would call me a casual goth or a notgoth (depending on how you look at it because i am a manson fan but only have been for about a year). Your book has things I’ve been looking for for years! The truth, you have told it well. I’ve seen into the past and know what it holds. The gothic way of life is exactly how you’ve told it. You are wise beyond your years. I’ve read many a things to do with witchcraft. Very seldom did two things in two different books matched up to what I had, but you’ve written something that matches up. You’ve written the book I’ve been looking for. I hope to see more like this from you as i’ve been drawn to your work for some reason i do not know.

  28. Rev. Korinne says:

    Greets- We are “friends” on myspace- I have been very interested in reading your book since I heard about it. I am 33 and have been wanting to write a “Gothic Wicca” book forever now. You inspire me, and I want to thank you! I would like to purchase a signed copy- so let me know when I can do that. Bright Blessings,
    Rev. Korinne

  29. Raine Childe says:

    I checked out your upcoming book listed on Amazon.com
    I will probably pre-order it soon; looks very interesting. I am a bit of a book-junkie if I find it interesting. Congrats on your book!
