Description

Callaighe Films

Over the last 15 years Janet Farrar, best known for her books on Witchcraft, has gained a reputation as a storyteller among those who have seen her perform in this role at festival and conferences in the US and Europe. After much demand she has released some of her favourite stories on to DVD. Produced and directed by Gavin Bone, her partner, this set of Modern Celtic Fairy stories, many written by Janet, includes scenes of Ireland, the land of the mists and fairy folk, set to music invoking the spirit of the Celtic Lands. These stories include:

Onessa: One of a Janet’s own stories. An ancient Goddess of Scotland is banished by a Christian monk and becomes a well-known legend, which passes down the ages, waiting to be awakened.

Peter Kagan and the Wind: A traditional story passed down by the fishing folk of the Celtic Isles. A Selkie -- a seal woman -- marries a fisherman who challenges the North Wind and loses. She makes the ultimate sacrifice for her love.

John O'Malley and the Banshee: A story by Janet. An Irish American expects to be carried away by his beautiful family Banshee when he dies but gets the shock of his life -- or death -- when she appears and admonishes his for his behaviour!

Jack Be Nimble: A story by Janet’s father, rewritten by Janet. A young welsh boy has a visitation during a fever. As an old man, the visitor returns when he is dying, and is not what he first seemed to be!

As I was going to St. Ives: A short traditional mystery rhyme from Cornwall. 'Kits, Cats, Sacks, and Wives…'

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...

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...
