Learn to Stand with Feet Rooted in Shadow and Hands Stretched to the Stars
"In your hands is Raven Grimassi's most personal and powerful work to date. In it he shares profound Craft teachings that will transform your relationship with magick, and your work as a Witch. I wish I'd had access to this treasure earlier on my path."--Christopher Penczak, co-founder of the Temple of Witchcraft and author of the Plant Spirit Familiar
For the first time in more than a decade, Grimassi introduces readers to a new system of witchcraft, one that draws upon the old ways and the old days. Rich with spells, rituals, and detailed illustrations of plant spirits, Grimassi dares readers to take the path that leads deep into the darkened woods--to traverse upon the Thorned Path.
Meet the entities that dwell within the organic memory of the earth, the devas, the deities, the magical life force that lies within the wooded glen. Learn to work with these spirits, and use their wisdom to transform your life and your practice.
"With Grimoire of the Thorn-Blooded Witch, Raven Grimassi has brought us the ultimate treasure--that thing for which we've searched so long, but failed to unearth: the missing link that connects all magical systems and makes each one viable. Undoubtedly, it's the most exciting and important book of the decade!" --Dorothy Morrison, author of Utterly Wicked and The Craft
"Many books talk about the relationship of Witches to natural magic. This book takes you into the very heart of it." --Christian Day, author of The Witches' Book of the Dead
"Truly a work of genius." --Theitic, executive editor of The Witches' Almanac
"Undoubtedly, it's the most exciting and important book of the decade!" --Dorothy Morrison, author of Utterly Wicked and The Craft
"The underworld powers of magical alchemy await within these pages!" --Orion Foxwood, author of The Candle and the Crossroads
For the first time in more than a decade, Grimassi introduces readers to a new system of witchcraft, one that draws upon the old ways and the old days to teach the practitioner how to master all that it is to be a Witch. Chock full of spells, illustrations of plant spirits, and rituals, Grimassi takes readers deep into the woods to learn the secrets of the Thorned Path.
Here we meet the entities that dwell deep within the organic memory of the earth, the devas, the deities, the magical life force behind the surface of the wooded glen. Chapters include Plant Spirits of the Green Realm, The Rose and Thorn Path of Witchery, Works of Magick, The Old Ones, and The Old Rites.
As practical as it is enchanting, this book will show students of witchcraft the ways of the Thorned Path.
