Priestess: The Life and Magic of Dion Fortune. Second Edition. (Used)

by Richardson, Alan

Publisher: Thoth Publications

Binding: Paperback

Book ID: 9781870450119, 1870450116

Description

Dion Fortune was the pen-name of Violet Firth, one of the most luminous and striking personalities of the twentieth century, womanhood’s answer to Aleister Crowley and quite possibly the Shakti of the Age.

This new, revised, expanded and beautifully written edition tells the full story of a woman who hid behind a veil of secrecy and who became a cult figure in the years after her death in 1946. A brilliant writer and pioneer psychologist, her whole life was devoted to living out an eternal myth in a story that can be told in terms of virgins and Dragons, moons and oceans and the spirit of the land itself.

As a powerful psychic and medium, obsessed with the study and practice of magic and a high-grade initiate within the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, her career was never entirely in this world and her companions not always human. In her own eyes at least, she was a priestess, a channel for the Great Goddess, an exponent of the time-lost mysteries of women long before the present generations of feminists and goddess-worshippers were ever born.

From her birth in Llandudno, through her years in the drowned lands of Somerset, Alan Richardson unfolds the luminous and very moving patterns of her life: her early career as a psychoanalyst, her nervous breakdown, her time as a Land Girl and her developing psychism; her memories of past lives on Atlantis and relationships with Inner Plane beings who have an evolutionary interest in our world; her romance with a man she believed to be non-human and her fraught marriage to a doctor whom everyone knew as Merlin; the foundation of her own group devoted to bringing through the Western Mysteries at a time when few people knew that there was such a thing; her occult battles against the Nazis and fellow magicians and the start of her long, hard and always stormy journey into the Otherworld, toward the heart of the Goddess that she saw as sleeping within the Earth itself and who needed awkening…

Charing, Howard G

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...

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...
