Description

Volume I: From the Twilight of the Gods to the Sun at Midnight.

Great ideas are marked by their persistence over time. Many such ideas are perennial aspects of Germanic culture that deep-culture which gave rise to the English, Scandinavian as well as German nations. Such ideas have continually remanifested themselves when called upon to renew and inspire the world to which they belong.

The Northern Dawn is a history of the persistent reemergence of these ideas despite continuous anti-cultural efforts to destroy them by adherents of medieval and modernistic repression. These concepts include personal freedom and responsibility, tribal solidarity, heroic virtues, and the search for the mysterious both out in the world and within the human soul.

At this point in time no culture is perhaps more misunderstood than the Germanic one. Yet this is the culture which lies at the very root of the dominant "western" world today. Much of the dysfunction in the modern world can be traced to misunderstanding and misuse of the cultural root upon which it is based. A new look at this foundation and the historical trials and tribulations it has underdone will lead to a greater understanding of our world today. Additionally, we trust that this understanding will lead to a new dimension in cultural healing as the light of the northern dawn breaks once more to illuminate our sleepy minds.

Covered in this volume are the basic authentic cultural values and definitions of essential theoretical terms, the history of Christianization of the Germanic tribes, and the preservation of cultural features in the Middle Ages throughout the Germanic world. As a consistent feature of the volumes in this series, a full spectrum of cultural aspects are systematically treated: law and politics, literature, religion and myth, language, as well as material culture.

This volume of The Northern Dawn is the first in a projected three volume series. These volumes will put into intellectual and historical perspective the age-old struggle to reawaken perennial Germanic and Indo-European values.

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.

Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press

Limited to 800 copies

Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...

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.

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...

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...
