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.

Employing the latest research and discoveries, including previously unpublished reminiscences of the real man, Tobias Churton investigates the truth beneath th...
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. An imposing figure in black raiment, he is most often pictured as a corpse. 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...
