Werewolf Magick

Werewolf Magick - Denny Sargent

by Denny Sargent

 

"Embrace your monster." That line in the Preface really appeals to me. The author explains how he came to develop his own system of werewolf magick and though it may seem a little weird, it actually makes sense.

 

This could have gone airy-fairy, but instead the author gives us history of Shamanic practices where the essence of animal mind gets induced by ritual. He emphasises that he is not a Shaman himself, but the history is well-researched and he relates some personal experience of meeting with genuine Shamans.

 

I was impressed with the amount of research that went into the history of animalistic ritual in different cultures and the serious approach. I found it extremely interesting and may well refer back to it sometimes as an academic work
