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.

Deconstructing Gurdjieff: Biography of a Spiritual Magician
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company
In November 1949, architect Frank Lloyd Wright announced the death of "the greatest man in the world," yet few knew who he was talking about. Enigmatic, misunderstood, declared a charlatan, and recently dubbed "the Rasputin who inspired Mary Poppins," Gurdjieff's life has become a legend. But who really was George Ivanovich Gurdjieff?
Employing the latest research and discoveries, including previously unpublished reminiscences of the real man, Tobias Churton investigates the truth beneath th...
Grimoire of the Baron Citadel: The Book of the Four Ways.
Three Hands Press
As the governor of the Dead and the burial ground, the Baron Samedi is one of the most distinctive and potent loa of Haitian Vodou. An imposing figure in black raiment, he is most often pictured as a corpse. His other magical domains, less discussed in esoteric literature, include disruption, obscenity and -- importantly for the practicing sorcerer -- not only the arts of Magic but the very fabric of which it is made.
Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...
Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions
"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us.
He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a
first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company
we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with
that all-important business contact."
- Richard Smoley, from the introduction
