Reviews

"This is an essential read for our community! This book approaches brujeria in such an inclusive and healing way." --Valeria Ruelas, The Mexican Witch, author of Cosmpolitan Love Potions
"More of this please! Brujas, Witches of Color are ancestral magical beings and the world we live in has tried to silence our voices. There is a rise happening, a roar thundering through our veins and the world will hear our voices louder than they can ever imagine. This book is such a beautiful tribute to the different stories and experiences we go through as brujas. Lorraine is one of the most beautiful souls I've ever met and her passion to bridge us together is apparent in this must-have book! Amplify the voice of Witches of Color by reading their stories." --Juliet Diaz, author of Witchery and Plant Witchery
"Important, informative, beautifully written, well researched, fun to read, practical, and mesmerizing--Brujas will leave you spellbound. Highly recommend." --Amanda Yates Garcia, author of Initiated: Memoir of a Witch
"Captivating, inspiring, and filled with tangible magick, Brujas offers a much-needed perspective that showcases the beautiful diversity of what it means to live a mystical life. Lorraine expertly weaves tantalizing narratives infused with love and hope, while guiding readers on a journey through often ignored histories, all while helping them establish a magickal practice that honors their own lineages and ancestors. A must-read for any witch." --Gabriela Herstik, author of Inner Witch, Bewitching the Elements, and Embody Your Magick
"This is a spellbinding book--a magical, elegant study of the powerful and fierce movement that challenges capitalism's encroachment on spirituality, human rights, and the environment." --Ben Montgomery, author of A Shot in the Moonlight: How a Freed Slave and Confederate Soldier Fought for Justice in the Jim Crow South
