The Sacred Rite of Magical Love: A Ceremony of Word and Flesh (New)
by Naglowska, Maria de
Publisher: Inner Traditions / Bear & Company
Book ID: 9781594774171, 159477417X
Usually available in 3-5 days
Available for the first time in English, The Sacred Rite of Magical Love is a mystical, sexually magical novella written by Maria de Naglowska -- the Russian mystic and esoteric high priestess of 1930s Paris. Her religious system, called the Third Term of the Trinity, taught the importance of sex for the upliftment of humanity.
This volume is a natural continuation of Naglowska's The Light of Sex and Advanced Sex Magic, and it also contains autobiographical material from Maria de Naglowska's life. Full of symbolic language and hidden meanings, the story follows a young woman named Xenophonta as she experiences the apparition of a dark force, whom she calls the Master of the Past and to whom she dedicates her heart and her service. Prior to a midnight rendezvous with him, Xenophonta encounters a young Cossack, Misha, who sexually accosts her. Telling Misha that she already belongs to another, she spurns his advances. Misha, now jealous, follows her and ends up taking part in a strange, mystical ceremony that transforms him, through the magic of word and flesh. With a preface discussing the Sacred Triangle and the magical symbol of the AUM Clock, both central symbols in Naglowska's religious system as well as in the story, the book also includes a summary of the doctrine of the Third Term of the Trinity in Naglowska's own words -- important to any student of the Western Mystery tradition.
MARIA DE NAGLOWSKA (1883-1936) was a Russian occultist, mystic, and founder of the Brotherhood of the Golden Arrow. Her conferences in Paris in the 1930s were attended by many now famous avant-garde and notorious writers and artists, such as Julius Evola, Man Ray, and Andre Breton. She is also known for her translation of P. B. Randolph's Magia Sexualis, the classic occult text that has survived only through her translation.
DONALD TRAXLER is both a translator and student of the occult. He lives in Martinez, California.

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

Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)

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...
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...
