Description

The author of best-selling Futhark: A Handbook of Rune Magic and Runelore takes you deeper into the heart of the runecaster's art, specifically, runic divination. The word rune means "mystery", and casting the runes enables the runecaster to penetrate the mystery of the relationship between the gods and humans, and between internal and external environments. Strongly loyal to the ancient traditions, Edred Thorsson traces the evolution of runecasting to the present in order to restore runework to its historical, spiritual, and cosmological significance. Thorsson shows you:

  • how to make your own runes;
  • how to load the rune with numinous power;
  • how to prepare the optimum setting for a rune reading;
  • how to prepare yourself psychologically and spiritually for casting the runes.
The book is complete -- including general rune meanings, divinatory tables, the positive and negative aspects of each rune, its linguistic component and phonetic value. Thorsson provides runic layouts and sample readings, as well as alternative ways to cast lots and answer yes/no questions. In each case, he is explicit, precise, and generous -- he trusts the runecaster's art and the integrity of the runecaster who is new to the craft. This volume is sure to restore runecasting to its position as a sacred art.

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.

Norse Mythology Norse Mythology
Gaiman, Neil
W.W. Norton & Co. Inc.

Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales.

In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin's son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki--son of a giant--blood brother to Odin and a trick...

The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context) The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context)
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...
