Magic (revised edition) is a selection of Dion Fortune's writings on the
practical applications of magical and esoteric techniques. She explains that
everyone has the ability to access the invisible planes of existence (mind and
spirit) which cannot be perceived with the physical senses. This book provides
invaluable guidance to anyone intent on increasing their awareness. This revised
edition includes a glossary that defines terms used in the study of the Western
Mystery Tradition. This new edition includes an introduction by Gareth Knight.
Dion Fortune wrote Aspects of Occultism, 'occultism' was an umbrella word
used to describe hidden lore, secret traditions, and arcane knowledge. Today the
word 'occult' is often confused with the word 'cult' and all of its negative
aspects. Fortune's essays could more accurately be referred to as 'esoteric
studies'. In this book she discusses evocative magic, the sites of Druid
worship, parallels between Christianity and the Qabalah, the astral plane,
auras, spiritual healing, power cycles, and our relationship to our higher
selves. This revised edition includes a new introduction by Gareth Knight, an
additional essay by Fortune ('The Myth of the Round table'), and an index.
Training and Work of an Initiate (revised edition) shows how, from ancient
Egyptian, Greek, and Qabalistic roots, the Western Esoteric Systems have an
unbroken initiatory tradition that has been handed down from adept to neophyte.
You will discover how initiates prepare body, mind, and spirit for the
challenging journey that is the esoteric path. This book is filled with
accessible information and is presented in such a way so that 'even that which
the smallest cup can carry away is the true water of life'. This revised edition
contains a new foreword by Gareth Knight and an index.
have been fascinated by secret traditions since the beginning of time. Fraternal
brotherhoods and sisterhoods and secret orders of varying degrees exist in every
country, race, and religion. Dion Fortune in Esoteric Orders and Their Work
gets to the root of exactly what esoteric orders are, leaving no stone unturned.
Today in the centers of the civilized world there is a renewed interest in
esoteric schools. Although they may be misunderstood by many, some of the
noblest people have been among their advocates. This book removes the shroud of
mystery and fear from esotericism and makes the Western Mystery Tradition
accessible to anyone who has ever been curious about this fascinating spiritual
path. This revised edition includes a new foreword by Gareth Knight and an
newest book from groundbreaking therapists Hal and Sidra Stone shows us how to
turn our relationships into true partnerships or 'joint ventures' in which we
discover how to balance our need for relationship with our need for
individuality. We learn how to relinquish judgment, improve decision-making and
communication, celebrate sensuality and sexuality, and include children in our
lives without sacrificing our own relationship.
This practical and inspiring guide shows us how to keep the magic in our
relationship alive and how to embrace the lessons that relationship has to teach
us. This book is for anyone who wants an intimate relationship that includes

are people with animal medicine, people who can connect with and use their
animal powers. Those with access to this magical power can shift mentally,
astrally, or even physically into their power animal or totem. Rosalyn Greene's
ability to to shift, both mentallt and astrally, combined with her extensive
study of secret shapeshifting folklore has resulted in this fascinating
examination of all aspects and forms of shifting.
This unique book helps to realize your full potential through the process of
shapeshifting. Detailed explanations are given about how the various forms of
shapeshifting occur. Powerful visions, anxiety attacks, and imagination are

shifter. Potential dangers associated with various shifting practices are
Shapeshifting is a spiritual journey; a demanding but rewarding one. It links
us with both the fundamental power of animals (nature) and with the higher self.
It has a purpose and a reality far beyond simply using shifter abilities for
earthly benefits. It can lead us through the unseen veil that separates our egos
from our true selves.
To an occultist, magic has a much different meaning than it has for most
other people. The books here are about magic in the occult sense. here is an
excerpt from the introduction to David Goddard's The Sacred Magic of the
Angels to clarify the occult meaning of Magic.
"The student of occultism knows that the power of
causation lies in the inner levels of being. What is brought about on the inner
levels will automatically, by universal dynamics, seek to manifest upon the
physical plane. So what appears to the uninitiated as "magic" is
really the science of applying little-known laws, whereby things are brought
into manifestation seemingly out of nowhere. Most people think that the physical
plane is reality, and if they think of inner levels at all, they image them as
rather insubstantial and vague. Whereas in truth, the inner levels are very real
and they give birth to the physical.
Anyone who has had direct experience of the inner
planes knows this. Whether through a near-death experience or by using a
consciousness-raising technique (meditation, astral projection, shamanic spirit
travel, ore deep pathworking), they have briefly seen the power, the beauty, and
the wonder of the inner levels of existence of which the physical world is but a
This is not to decry the physical level, or to advocate
escape from it - for matter, like everything else, is divine in origin and
physicality is the garment of the Eternal. But many confuse the garment with
That which wears it."
the excerpt quoted above has piqued your interest in this very practical guide
to Angel Magic. He introduces the seven archangels of the Elohim, the seven
spirits before the throne of God and shows us how to call upon them and the
archetypes that emanate from them to assist us on our Path of Return to the One
Source, which is also known as the Great Work.
There is much information in this book that makes it useful to anyone on the
path, regardless of how long you have been treading it. We are extremely
fortunate that David Goddard has offered us this ancient Angelic tradition in
written form. At a time when western society needs to reconnect with the Sacred
for its own healing, this book provides a practical and very wise method of
doing just that.

Sefer Yetzirah is perhaps the oldest and least understood of all
Kabbalistic texts. This translation was done by Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan, who brings
its theoretical, meditative, and magical implications to light. When properly
understood, the Sefer Yetzirah becomes an instruction manual for a very
special type of meditation meant to strengthen concentration and to aid the
development of psychic perception. These abilities were meant to help Kabbalists
to perform feats that outwardly appeared magical.
This translation includes the meditation in five dimensions, the transition
from Binah to Chakhmah consciousness, the point of infinity, kabbalistic
astrology, Ezekiel's vision according to the Sefer Yetzirah, and the
mystery of the 231 gates. Also included is a digest of major commentaries on the
text of the Sefer Yetzirah and a bibliography of many of the major
kabbalistic works that discuss it. This volume is the most complete work on the Sefer
Yetzirah in English.
When Saint Patrick first came to Ireland in the fifth century A.D., he
encountered the Celtic people and a flourishing spiritual tradition that had
already existed for thousands of years. The Celts had a refined and passionate
sense of the divine. The Celtic imagination articulates an inner friendship that
embraces nature, divinity, the underworld, and the human world as one. The Celts
never separated the visible from the invisible, time from eternity, or the human
from the divine. Surviving to this day, the Celtic reverence for the soul in all
things is a vibrant spiritual heritage unique in the Western world, one that is
capturing the imagination of thousands of people as they rediscover the wisdom
of the past and their own Celtic roots.
In Anam Cara, Gaelic for 'soul friend', John O'Donohue invites you
into the magical and unobtrusive world of your own divinity; to that place in
the soul where there is no distance between you and the eternal. The ancient
wisdom, poetry, and blessings of Celtic spirituality will awaken and grace the
beauty of your heart's landscape. Exploring such themes as the mystery of
friendship, the spirituality of the senses, the brightness within solitude, work
as the poetics of growth, aging as the art of inner harvesting, and death as
eternal homecoming, this book will encircle your heart with Celtic benediction.
