Mercury's Children - Shamanic and Hermetic Practices: Institute for Hermetic Studies Monograph Serie (New)
by Stavish, Mark
Book ID: 9781530399765, 1530399769
Mercury's Children - Shamanic and Hermetic Practices is a thorough overview of the common roots and practices of Shamanism and Hermeticism. Shamanism is the foundation of all religion, magic, initiation, and esotericism. Shamanism is about experiencing the physical world as filled with visible and invisible beings of wisdom and power with whom humans may interact if they chose, but to their detriment, often do not. Shamanism is magic in its most powerful, sensual, erotic and illusive sense. However, many modern Hermetic schools have often ignored their shamanic roots, and have removed themselves from a source of important experiences and power. The influence of shamanism on alchemy, and ceremonial practices of goetia, notions of demon and Elemental lovers, folk magic (Brauche and Pow-Wow of the Pennsylvania Germans), Rosicrucianism, and Freemasonic symbols of initiation and resurrection are explored. An extensive set of suggested methods for students of Hermeticism wishing to integrate Shamanism into their practices are provided.

Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...

Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.
The Voynich Manuscript
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...More
