"Rasbold, herself a bruja of many years standing, explains clearly what Brujería is (and isn't), sharing the depth and detail of practices, methodologies, and self-strengthening required to become a bruja or brujo. Her writing style is lucid and fluid, and even those who do not wish to become a practitioner will find this volume absorbing. A welcome book on a little-explored magical practice, The Sacred Art of Brujería is highly recommended."
—Corbie Mitleid, author of The Psychic Yellow Brick Road
