Description

Rhiannon Ryall is well known for her book West Country Wicca, which is primarily concerned with the overt/public face of Wicca. This new book brings some of the inner mysteries to those interested in the Pagan Path or Tradition. The tradition Rhiannon describes here has its roots in Western Ireland. Inevitably the Druidic Path crosses that of any genuine Gaelic Tradition of Wicca, so this book contains much Druidic lore. Background material pertaining to the Druids is also included as this explains much of their way of viewing the world and it enables the reader to understand more fully their attributions in general and their rituals in particular.

The book is divided into five parts: Chapter 1: Casting circles, seasonal sigils, wands, woods for times of year, Celtic runes, the Great Tides, making cones and vortices of power, polarities and how to change them, the seasonal Ogham keys and some Ogham correspondences. Chapter 2: Old calendar festivals and associated evocations, the Call of Nine, two versions of the Six Pointed Dance", Mistletoe Lore, New Moon Working, the Five-fold Calendar. Chapter 3: Underlying fundamentals of Magical Working and some related matters, Magical squares and their applications, use of the Oghams, the Diamond Working area, ancient Saxon curse and the East Anglian Shepherds counting system. Chapter 4: Five initiations, including a shamanistic one, some minor calls, some little magics. Chapter 5: Background information on the Celtic path, the Arthurian myth and its underlying meaning and significance, the Three Worlds of the Celts, thoughts regarding the Hidden Path, some thoughts and final advice. A veritable treasure trove for anyone interested in the Celtic path.

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...

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...

Charing, 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.
