Temple Reading List

The Temple Mystery School requires a substantial amount of reading from students, primarily from the Temple of Witchcraft series of books we use as our course textbooks. There’s also a recommended reading list for each level of the Mystery School, which we’re sharing here for those interested in some books we recommend, or a look at the kind of reading and work we do at the different levels. There’s also some other reading associated with the Temple, particularly books by founder Christopher Penczak since the establishment of the Temple which have influenced his Temple work and vice versa.

Happy reading!
