Description

This book is published in English for the first time. It is a compilation of historical data, anthropological writings about Witches in the Balkans, and the author's discoveries and interviews with them. It has theoretical and practical sections, and gives a complete system of Balkan Craft. The system is divided into smaller elements, and each element includes both theory and practical examples.

You will discover who the Witches are, and how people in the Balkans perceive them; how initiation is obtained in Balkan Witchcraft, and how to perform it; why and how Balkan Witches use ritual trance, and how to achieve that state. Also you will find out which ritual tools Balkan Witches use, how they make them and what they use them for. One of the larger parts of the book is about rituals and their structure. There you'll see how to construct rituals by Balkan rules, and perform them. There are several examples of healing, love, defense, and charm-making rituals etc. Many interesting things are important in those rituals; such as what time they are performed, ritual silence, ritual nudity and much more. Finally, you can read about important dates in Balkan Craft, the supreme forces that Witches contact, the subject of the Balkan cults etc. Much of the book is about sacred and magical plants, the myths about them, and ways to use them in rituals.

Translated into English by Michael C. Carter, Jr., this book - a bestseller in its native Serbia - is an incredible look into the world of the Balkan Witch, covering ritual trance, tools, rites for healing, love, divination, defense and for making charms. It also explores the supernatural beings that Balkan Witches share their world with, deities, fairies and other spirits. There has never been such a deep exploration of the magic of this region available in English before.

Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press

Limited to 800 copies

The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...

The Voynich Manuscript The Voynich Manuscript
Clemens, Raymond
Yale University Press

Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...

Charing, Howard G
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company

After surviving a serious elevator crash in London, Howard G. Charing found he had developed healing touch as well as the ability to hear voices and experience visions--just as a healer in Italy had predicted only a week before the accident. He began using his abilities to heal but felt he needed more guidance and training. He first connected with a national spiritual healing organization, only to be told he was doing everything wrong. Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.
