Title: Out of the Shadows: An Exploration of Dark Paganism and Magick
Author: John J. Coughlin
Link: https://www.amazon.com/Out-Shadows-Expl ... 0982354975

Synopsis:
So often darkness is associated with evil. Since the term evil has no place in a nature-based religion, we Pagans are forced to look beyond such stereotypes. But what then is "darkness? Why are so many of us drawn to themes associated with darkness such as death, mystery, wisdom, magic, and the night? These themes and symbols are empowering to many of us because they tap into the deepest reaches of our unconscious. The goal of this book, which is a culmination of over 16 years of study and practice, is to not only share with you the author’s views on Dark Paganism and spirituality, but to encourage you – if not challenge you – to personalize your own belief system. While the first part explores the aspects and spirituality of darkness, the second part of this book discusses the nature and practice of magic by exploring the underlying principles at work.

If you have read this book, we would love to hear your thoughts.
