The Signature of All Things (New)
by Boehme, Jacob
Book ID: 9780227678572, 0227678575
Usually available in 3-5 days
Among the great mystics of the Reformation era none are so difficult to understand as Jacob Boehme, the Cobbler of Gorlitz. Yet a few can offer so much to the reader who is prepared to take the trouble to understand his message. It is in the Signatura Rerum that Boehme expounds his cosmology lies at the heart of his whole mystical approach and experience, the Signatura, although by no means his longest book, is the starting place from which to gain an understanding of his ideas.
Here, for example, can be found the great passages expounding the seven fundamental laws or energies or qualities, like the seven-fold colour-band of the rainbow. Here, he shows the relationship between the Underground, the eternal matrix that is the Mother of all births and man's will, the essential key to the beginning of the road to salvation.
Boehme's insights did not endear him to the guardians of religious orthodoxy of his own day or of later centuries, but the influence of his ideas has nonetheless been widely felt. Despite attempts to suppress his works, most of his books were readily available in most parts of Europe and were translated into many languages. In England his doctrines had a profound influence upon thinkers as diverse as George Fox, the Father of Quakerism, and the Cambridge Platonists; they were to find their most coherent expositor and interpreter in William Law.
Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions
"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us.
He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a
first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company
we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with
that all-important business contact."
- Richard Smoley, from the introduction

Grimoire of the Baron Citadel: The Book of the Four Ways.
Three Hands Press
As the governor of the Dead and the burial ground, the Baron Samedi is one of the most distinctive and potent loa of Haitian Vodou.

His other magical domains, less discussed in esoteric literature, include disruption, obscenity and -- importantly for the practicing sorcerer -- not only the arts of Magic but the very fabric of which it is made.
Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...
