My thoughts on Raven Grimassi’s What We Knew in the Night

Posted in Magick on September 2, 2019 by Occult Detective


Conn and I have made a lot of progress on the “pallet shack” we’re building on the back edge of our property. I look forward to sharing it with you all once it’s completed. The goal is to have our “Bookhouse” open for business by October and our Samhain celebrations…

grimassi1Speaking of celebrations, could these be a better celebration of the life work of Raven Grimassi that his posthumous occult treasure What We Knew in the Night: Reawakening the Heart of Witchcraft ?

Grimassi gathers between these covers the sum of what he has learned and taught about the Craft, delivering a wonderful dissection and introduction to how Witchcraft has evolved over the decades. Even if your flavor of witchcraft differs from Grimassi’s, you will find his stroll down memory lane an educational and magical journey worth far more than the cost of admission.

grimassi2Grimassi’s passing was a tremendous blow to the witchcraft community. His wisdom is sorely missed, but this book is a terrific bookend to his legacy, one that I simply cannot recommend highly enough.

While I wish this were released in a hardcover edition, it’s hard to argue with the beautiful cover design. Though there are some odd design choices on the interior pages, the paper quality and choice of fonts make this a very comfortable read.

It would make a great addiction to any occultist’s library.

What We Knew in the Night: Reawakening the Heart of Witchcraft by Raven Grimassi is available wherever books are sold.
