Damien Echols’s first instructional book on Western ceremonial magick as a path for transforming yourself and your reality.

At age 18, Damien Echols was sentenced to death for a crime he didn’t commit. “I spent my years in prison training to be a true magician,” he recalls. “I used magick—the practice of reshaping reality through our intention and will—to stave off incredible pain, despair, and isolation. But the most amazing feat of all that practice and study was to manifest my freedom.” With High Magick, this bestselling author shares his first instructional book on the powerful spiritual practice that helped him overcome his struggles—so you can learn how to transform your own reality.

What is High Magick? The tradition Damien teaches is not about stage tricks or illusions—it is an ancient discipline of spiritual realization kept alive for thousands of years. Here he offers clear training for modern audiences on meditations and practices such as the Four-Fold Breath, the Qabalistic Cross, the Lesser Rituals of the Pentagram, using sigils and talismans, and working with angelic forces of creation.

“Magick is a journey,” teaches Damien. “It’s a continuously unfolding path that has no end—meant for questioners, seekers, and those who desire to peel away the surface of reality to see what lies beneath.” If you’re ready to discover your untapped potential for co-creating your reality with the energy of the divine, then join this extraordinary teacher to begin your training in High Magick.

About the Author

DAMIEN ECHOLS was born in 1974 and grew up in Mississippi, Tennessee, Maryland, Oregon, Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas. When he was 18, Damien and two other young men were wrongfully convicted of murder, eventually becoming known as the West Memphis Three. Having received a death sentence, Damien spent almost two decades on death row, until he was released in 2011. While in prison, Damien was ordained into the Rinzai Zen Buddhist tradition. He is the subject of Paradise Lost, a three-part documentary series produced by HBO, and West of Memphis, a documentary produced by Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh. Damien is also the author of the New York Times bestseller Life After Death and Yours For Eternity (with his wife Lorri Davis).

Damien teaches classes on magick around the country and works as a visual artist. His artwork entails glyphs, sigils, and symbols designed to bypass the conscious mind and speak directly to the subconscious, combining magick techniques with his own alphabet and writing system to break down concepts and scenarios into abstract designs. He and Lorri live in New York City with their three cats.
