The heart of wicca
Wise words from a crone on the path
Takes us beyond many of the currently popularized ideas and images related to the nature of Wiccan beliefs and practices. It guides us past the surface into a deeper understanding of the lifestyle, mind set, and religious dedication to spiritual growth that lie at the heart of this life-transforming practice. Reed tells us about life in a coven, training, rituals, initiations, finding a teacher, and spell-casting.

Cannon Read, Ellen – The witches Qabala

The witches qabala
The pagan path and the Tree of Life

Because the classic writings on the Qabala have been expressed primarily in the terminology of the Western Mystery Tradition or in terms of the ceremonial magician, its usefulness as a tool for the Craft has been overlooked. With this book, Ellen Cannon Reed, a High Priestess of the Isian tradition, brings the symbolism of the Qabala into a new light so pagans can see its value and use it to enhance the Great Work. Reed explains the Tree of Life, the primary symbol used to represent the universal energies as “revealed” by the Qabala, and how its spheres and paths correspond to elements in the pagan tradition. Teachers can use the Qabala to understand the growth of students and their problems, using the Vices and Virtues to recognize stages of growth. Reed also provides exercises, meditations, and encouragement to students who are studying without a teacher. She discusses the Qabala as it appears in everyday life, which spheres of the Tree of Life to use for specific workings, and details two rituals using the Tree: a Dedication to the Journey, and the Rite of mending Love. Reed’s command of the material allows teachers and students alike to gain powerful insight into their own search for spirituality.

This rare book includes original spells, rituals, and invocations and an herbal grimoire. Featured in the design are Scott’s actual hand-drawn signs, symbols, and runes.
More than ten years after his passing, Scott Cunningham is still an iconic and highly regarded figure in the magical community. His books on Wicca are considered classics, and his writings continue to inspire and inform those new to the Craft.

Esoterische dimensies in astrologie
De theorie en praktijk van esoterie
Dit boek werpt een volkomen nieuw licht op de huidige astrologie en onthult haar verborgen lagen. Hier wordt haar oorspronkelijke vorm getoond en komen de verloren delen – esoterie en het astrale – weer op hun plaats. Uitgebreid wordt ingegaan op deze bijzondere verborgen energie’n die bovendien een diep inzicht geven in de mens. Deze niet-tastbare onderwerpen worden op een nuchtere en heldere manier beschreven met behulp van mensbeelden, waarbij ook oeroude astrologische bronnen zijn geraadpleegd.
In de eerste astrologische bronnen had God een astronomische plaats in de nachthemel en was Hij een onderdeel van oude astrologische inwijdingsleren. Onze huidige godsdiensten zijn grotendeels gebaseerd op de godsdienstige leringen van de zeven oude planeten. Zeer opmerkelijk in dit boek is de beschrijving van de planeten vanuit een esoterisch standpunt. De manier waarop Leo Hunting dit doet legt de diepste essentie van de planeten bloot. Bovendien wordt duidelijk dat kabbala en astrologie oorspronkelijk één waren. Volkomen nieuw zijn de esoterische en astrale trainingen op astrologische basis.
Leo Hunting houdt zich bezig met het geven van consulten en het opleiden van astrologen. Astrologische kennis is geen vereiste om zijn boek te kunnen lezen, wel interesse in de kennis van het esoterische.
