The Horned Altar- Rediscovering & Rekindling Canaanite Magic By Tess Dawson

The Horned Altar- Rediscovering & Rekindling Canaanite Magic By Tess Dawson

Rediscover a magic that is raw and real, but nearly forgotten—the magic and mysticism of Canaan. Anyone with a connection to Christianity or Judaism can claim some measure of spiritual inheritance from Canaan, a culture miscast as the villains of the Bible. This engaging guide, written by an authority on Canaanite mysticism, will help practitioners of any spiritual path develop a powerful magical practice based on these nearly lost theories and techniques.

Using primary sources and translations originally written by the Canaanites themselves, Dawson first explores the specific forces, themes, and symbolism involved in Canaanite magic. In the second part of the book, she tells us how we can bring these ancient practices into the 21st century for personal use. Among the topics covered: Deities of Canaan and how to honor them; the alphabets of Canaan and Phoenicia; how to make a Babylonian demon protection bowl; and spells and prayers for healing, love, and protection.

Tess Dawson (New England) is one of the foremost authorities in the field of Canaanite mysticism and spiritual practices. A devotee as well as scholar of the tradition, Dawson leads the largest online Canaanite polytheist group, teaches workshops on the topic, and serves as a leader in the Near and Middle Eastern polytheist communities. She has written for Witches & Pagans, PanGaia, SageWoman, Circle, Pentacle, The Beltane Papers, and a few anthologies.

Pagan Spirituality, A Guide To Personal Transformation by River and Joyce Higginbotham

Pagan Spirituality, A Guide To Personal Transformation by River and Joyce Higginbotham

The spiritual path of the modern Pagan is one of constant growth and change - in a word, evolution. Pagan Spirituality explores how Pagan spiritual development relates to contemporary theories of cultural and spiritual evolution. As a post-modern spiritual movement arising from a worldview comfortable with multiple perspectives, Paganism offers individuals unbounded opportunites for growth and expansion. The authors believe that this process of both individual and collective evolution is supported by models for human development advanced by leading modern thinkers including Ken Wilber, James Fowler, Don Beck, Christopher Cowan, and Riane Eisler.

Pagan Spirituality encourages all Pagans to reflect on their own spiritual progress, and eventually look beyond the personal to transpersonal. Descriptions and examples of both positive and negative behaviors that often accompany each stage in the evolutionary process will help you assess your progress and set goals for further development. Exercises throughout the text are designed to further cultivate both magickal skills and spiritual growth through journaling, visualization, and meditation.

This groundbreaking work challenges readers to think critically about the nature of faith, culture, consciousness, and the role that Pagans - both individually and collectively - will undoubtedly play in the conscious creation of tomorrow
