A Note on Cultural Appropriation. (Click to download PDF)

Let’s not cry wolf but also let’s know how to spot the wolf when it tries to pass under sheep’s clothing. I wrote this book with the intent that Fu sigil crafting and the principles espoused herein can be integrated with, adapted into, or modified to work with a Western practitioner’s current path. Yet to do so competently, you’ll want to be informed about the culture and history of Fu, which is what this book attempts to provide.
