Description

When Dion Fortune wrote Aspects of Occultism, "occultism" was an umbrella word used to describe hidden lore, secret traditions, and arcane knowledge. Today, when the word "occult" is often confused with "cult", and all its negative aspects, Fortune's essays would be better referred to as "esoteric studies". In this book she discusses evocative magic, the sites of Druid worship, parallels between Christianity and the Qabalah, the astral plane, auras, spiritual healing, power cycles, and our relationship with the Higher Self.

Nine different aspects of occultism are illuminated by Fortune's wisdom and insight: "God and the Gods" contrasts the God of Christianity with the gods of pagan faiths, "Sacred Centres" features the sites of Druid worship and the connection of planetary and physical matter, "Christianity and Reincarnation" draws an unusual parallel between the teaching of Christ and the Qabalistic doctrine. In "The Astral Plane", Fortune teaches that death does not change our astral consciousness; "The,Worship of Isis" reminds us that each woman is a priestess of the goddess; and "Some Helps to Meditation" provides a few simple rules for achieving a state of higher consciousness. The three bands visible when the aura is seen in its entirety are described in "Teachings Concerning the Aura", "Pitfalls of Spiritual Healing" deals with the dangers of attempting such "healing without the necessary grounding in scientific training and clinical experience", and "Power Tides and Cycles" concerns the Cosmic Doctrine "whereby we trace the Cosmos coming into manifestation cycle by cycle and the great zodiac taking form in unlimited space".

This revised edition includes a new introduction byGareth Knight, an additional essay by Fortune -- "The Myth of the Round Table" -- and an index. People familiar with Fortune's work will love this book

Clemens, Raymond
Yale University Press

Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book.

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...

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.

Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...

The Accidental Shaman: Journeys with Plant Teachers and Other Spirit Allies The Accidental Shaman: Journeys with Plant Teachers and Other Spirit Allies
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.
