Description

For some fifty years, secrecy has surrounded the Royal Windsor Coven and the Regency which operated from the 1960s to the 1990s. They have played a major role in shaping modern witchcraft and paganism, not only in the U.K. but, in the USA and Australasia. The Royal Windsor Coven gave birth to what is known as the "Cochrane Tradition" in witchcraft, named after the pseudonym of one of the coven's founders: "Robert Cochrane". The Regency, which was the exoteric form of the Royal Windsor Coven, was the first group to hold public, pagan celebrations, open to all-comers, in Britain and paved the way for the public pagan festivals that culminated in the Stonehenge Festivals. Together, these groups gave rise to the Clan of Tubal Cain and Y Plant Bran strands of witchcraft in Britain and the 1734 and Roebuck covens in the USA. They included amongst their members most of the famous names in witchcraft today, including Doreen Valiente, Marion Green, Norman Gills, Bill Gray, Madge Worthington, Joe Wilson and Evan John Jones.

In spite of their importance, there is very little information in the public domain about either of these groups and much of what is available is filled with factual error and invention. As leader of the Regency, the author possesses a collection of letters and documents that has never seen the light of day and sheds interesting and detailed information about the activities, beliefs and rituals of the Royal Windsor Coven and the Regency. The author also has over forty years experience and membership of the Regency, together with anecdotal information about the Royal Windsor Coven from its members who were close friends and with whom he lived for many years. This is a history of the Royal Windsor Coven and the Regency, which focuses on its members, beliefs and rituals to demystify, inform and inspire.

With plates of rare manuscript, illustrated. 488 pages.

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.

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...

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...
