Out of the Shadows
An Exoloration of Dark Paganism and Magick



Although this book is geared towards Dark Paganism and other paths of dark spirituality, themes of darkness are not just used within a religious or spiritual context. There are many non-spiritual paths and lifestyles that also fall under the category of darkness. The term darksider loosely addresses any individual who is naturally attracted to darkness.

This chapter explores three of the more common forms of dark lifestyle: Gothic, Vampire and BDSM.
