The Hidden Path
The Hidden Path deck contains a mythos connected to the Otherworld, with an underlying current in which it follows a mated pair of goddess and god who journey together through the Wheel of the Year. The emphasis of this deck is upon the mystical and spiritual dimensions associated with Paganism, Wicca and Witchcraft. In this light we are presenting the forty mystical concepts that vitalize modern traditions. The Hidden Path compliments the Well Worn Path, which presented the forty foundational religious concepts. Together the two decks provide an entire and complete tradition for the solitary practitioner. In this sense, the Hidden Path can be viewed as an expansion deck (although it is a complete system that is not dependant upon the Well Worn Path deck). If you are interested in a deeper exploration of the Ash, Birch and Willow system, we suggest reading Witchcraft: A Mystery Tradition, by Raven Grimassi.
When working with the Hidden Path deck you can experience the cards on different levels. This is because a great deal of magic and astral work went into the development of this deck. On a mundane level we drew upon ancient and modern sources to compile the written material. On an astral level we tapped into thought-forms that exist outside the material dimension. On a magical level we joined forces with our incredible artist who mixed herbal tinctures into the materials used to create the images for this deck. The joining together of the three of us became something greater than the sum of its parts, and in the final analysis we believe that this deck was created through us and not by us.
