Trample on the dust of the Dead lightly...
This sentiment, held by old-time Hoodoos and
traditional Rootworkers, is a subtle reminder of
the importance of observing certain behaviors
while in a graveyard. Knock before entering.
Be careful where you walk. Don't step on graves
or sit on tombstones. Always ask before taking
anything-even stones, flowers, sticks and leaves.
Never leave trash, always greet the gatekeeper
and always come prepared with a pocket full of
pennies, silver dimes and a bottle of rum or
whiskey. The important thing to remember is
that you never just walk in and take something.
You must always treat the spirits with respect;
both the spirits of the deceased, as well as the
guardians of the cemeteries and the psychopomps.
Workin' in da Boneyard is a primer for conjurers
seeking a tangible connection to their past, their
ancestors and the Spirit World by working with
graveyards and graveyard dirt. From practical
issues of safety, choosing a cemetery, locating
ancestral graves, reading gravestone signs and
symbols, avoiding haints and hauntings, to
gathering graveyard dirt and making goofer
dust, Workin' in da Boneyard has the information
needed for working effective graveyard conjure,
as well as words of caution for the ill-prepared.

Jailbreaking the Goddess: A Radical Revisioning of Feminist Spirituality
Allen, Lasara Firefox
Llewellyn Worldwide, Ltd.
"Jailbreaking the Goddess
is an important contribution to the writings on Goddess tradition and feminist spirituality. . . . I love her political savvy, her sensitivity around issues of diversity and cultural awareness and appropriation, and her unabashed celebration of pleasure, sensuality, and life!" -- Starhawk

Another key element of its ritual, the elaborate Seal of God, has been found in texts and amulets throughout Europe.
Interest in The Sworn Book of Honorius has grown in recent years, yet no modern translations have been attemptedunt...
