Unite Your Everyday & Magical Lives with the Power of Inner Alchemy

Make your day-to-day life as fulfilling and rewarding as your magical practice by turning everything you do into an extension of that practice. Nothing is truly mundane in this world—but if you can't pay bills on time or weather difficult relationships, how can you achieve spiritual transformation? Packed with practical tools that help improve your willpower and focused intention, The Little Work teaches you how to build and sustain the magical life you desire.

Durgadas Allon Duriel guides you through a journey of inner alchemy to develop your mind, body, emotional resilience, and personal power. Explore meditations, affirmations, and will-development exercises. Discover how to manage your energy, heal from painful experiences, and create a daily practice. This essential book encourages you to dance with rather than run from reality while transforming yourself into a healthier, happier, and more spiritual person.


"Durgadas Allon Duriel gives a masterclass on how incorporating a magical outlook on the mundane can affect our inner and outer worlds in extraordinary ways.…If you're wanting a more practical approach to a charmed and inspired life through the infusion of a little magic into the little things we do every single day, read this book and learn how little things can lead to big results!"—Tomás Prower, author of Queer Magic

"In order for us to make big things happen with our magic we have to do the 'little work.' What Duriel delivers with this book is nothing short of exceptional. Full of keen insight and empathy for the witch who yearns to make real change in their life, what you find in the pages of this book will set your soul on fire and breathe new life into any practice."—Devin Hunter, author of the Witch Power series

"The Little Work offers profound insight into the key metaphysical principles that govern our existence, inspiring us to better sculpt our will and reshape our reality. This premiere book by author Durgadas Allon Duriel is certain to imprint its wisdom upon the large field of esoteric scholarship, while providing workable advice to transform the lives of all readers. Superbly written, the author's immense compassion, and the awe with which he views the world, is evident in his words, providing the perfect alchemical balance for the lofty concepts this work so adeptly explores."–Chas Bogan, author of The Secret Keys of Conjure

"The Little Work fills a very special void in the subject of personal transformative magic. Durgadas Allon Duriel's unique areas of expertise tie together some of the most powerful gems of western magic with a close examination of mind, body, and spiritual health. The result is a holistic work that will surely cause deep shift for the reader who puts these lessons to work."—David Salisbury, author of Witchcraft Activism

"Duriel lays out a stable foundation for transforming the 'mundane' into the magical. Drawing from various traditions and practices such as Hermeticism, Yoga, and his work as a cognitive behavioral therapist, Duriel reveals the true secrets of how to transform our inner blocks into strengths, as well as how to maintain a healthy spiritual practice even when life throws obstacles in our way. Should be required reading for anyone embarking on a magical path."—Storm Faerywolf,
author of Forbidden Mysteries of Faery Witchcraft
