Amanda Yates Garcia, or “Oracle of Los Angeles” as she’s also called, lives the many practices that she openly discusses. Of her many spiritual endeavors, she has founded the Los Angeles Mystery Project, has led classes and workshops on magic and witchcraft at UCLA, UC Irvine, MOCA Los Angeles, The Hammer Museum, LACMA, The Getty and many other venues, and is the co-host of the popular Strange Magic podcast. Amanda’s debut book, Initiated, is a memoir about finding meaning, beauty, and power through a life in witchcraft.
"Mythic journeys to the underworld, goddesses, ecstasies, fairy tales, ghosts, love, sex, female empowerment, challenging the patriarchy: Initiated is full of my favorite things, told with savage grace by my favorite oracle, the powerful and devastatingly enchanting Amanda Yates Garcia. This book will change your life."—Francesca Lia Block
