The Sorcerer's Secrets


The Sorcerer’s Secrets


$15.65


This book is about real magick, effecting real change, in a real world. There are some books on magick that teach it purely as spiritual advancement. There are others that teach it as a form of psychological self-help that effects only inner change. While magick can and should be both of these, it is something more. The Sorcerer’s Secrets is about success in practical magick; it is a book that aims at change in both the outer and inner worlds. Beyond a mere spell book or training course, The Sorcerer’s Secrets is a field manual on successful sorcery written by a professional sorcerer. The first part of the book lays out the qualities, concepts, and exercises necessary to attempt practical magick. The second part presents clear strategies for tackling almost any type of issue with sorcery. In this book you will learn how to:? Attack problems from multiple angles, not just by casting a spell. Blend mundane and magickal action to ensure success. Figure out whether what you are doing is working. Fix it if it isn’t. Go beyond readings, into magickal intelligence-gathering. Influence the minds of other people. Work most effectively on behalf of others. The Sorcerer’s Secrets will help rescue the art of Magick from those who have ignored, downplayed, or just outright denied the existence of practical sorcery in favor of arcane titles, intangible results, and fantasy attainments.

Centuries


Centuries


$14.95


Joel Brouwer writes prose poems that walk a wire of anxiety through contemporary life where “you realize you’re naked under your coat, you don’t remember a single line, and you’ll have to go on like that, you’ll have to go on and sing.” And yet the pieces in Centuries are so various and unpredictable and startling, sometimes hyperbolic, often sordid. “The garage smells of turpentine and dirty magazines. The freezer hums with meat. You pour yourself an insecticide martini, scratch idly at your wart, and chit-chat with a cricket.” Brouwer’s universe, finally, as it springs and bristles with odd, nightmarish details and human voices, is able to circle back to a place of consolation where “A body has soft and hards parts, like a piano. Music comes from where they meet.” In the end, Brouwer uses the disparate contingencies of existence like an instrument through which he can control chaos through art, through language.

Cave and Cosmos


Cave and Cosmos


$17.33


In 1980, Michael Harner blazed the trail for the worldwide revival of shamanism with his seminal classic The Way of the Shaman. In this long-awaited sequel, he provides new evidence of the reality of heavens. Drawing from a lifetime of personal shamanic experiences and more than 2,500 reports of Westerners? experiences during shamanic ascension, Harner highlights the striking similarities between their discoveries, indicating that the heavens and spirits they?ve encountered do indeed exist. He also provides instructions on his innovative core-shamanism techniques, so that readers too can ascend to heavenly realms, seek spirit teachers, and return later at will for additional healing and advice. Written by the leading authority on shamanism, Cave and Cosmos is a must-read not only for those interested in shamanism, but also for those interested in spirituality, comparative religion, near-death experiences, healing, consciousness, anthropology, and the nature of reality. Praise for Michael Harner and The Way of the Shaman? What Yogananda did for Hinduism and D.T. Suzuki did for Zen, Michael Harner has done for shamanism?namely, bring the tradition and its richness to Western awareness. from Higher Wisdom, by Roger Walsh and Charles S. Grob? Wonderful, fascinating. Harner really knows what he?s talking about. Carlos Castaneda, best-selling author of The Teachings of Don Juan and The Active Side of Infinity? An intimate and practical guide to the art of shamanic healing and the technology of the sacred. Michael Harner is not just an anthropologist who has studied shamanism; he is an authentic white shaman. Stanislav Grof, author of The Adventure of Self-Discovery? Harner has impeccable credentials, both as an academic and as a practicing shaman. Without doubt (since the recent death of Mircea Eliade) the world?s leading authority o

Cotswolds Arts and Crafts Architecture


Cotswolds Arts and Crafts Architecture


$20.37


Between 1890 and 1930, Arts and Crafts architecture proliferat­ed within the Cotswolds. The range and quality of the buildings was exceptional as the region provided the perfect environment for the Movement’s ideals and principles. Arts and Crafts archi­tects relished the robust vernacular precedent as it channeled their ideas and stimulated their imaginations. Its rational basis and dependence on craft skills had lasting value, and it was no coincidence that the most influential aspect of their work was its emphasis on conservation. The Arts and Crafts Movement in the Cotswolds has at­tracted much interest in recent decades, the appeal of the simple life and of traditional values detached from the pres­sures of modern society having as much allure now as it did a century ago. Most of these studies have referred to the work of architects in the region, but the subject has not received the specialist attention it deserves until now. This book examines the impact of the Movement on the Cotswold landscape, on the survival of its building traditions, and on modern attitudes to building conservation. After an introductory section which outlines the Movement’s origins and beliefs and its architectural principles, the main part of the book provides a guide to the general characteristics associated with Arts and Crafts building in the Cotswolds. There are separate chapters on the various types of new commission that were undertaken, from small and large country houses and cottages to village halls and almshouses, not to mention the numerous repair and remodeling jobs on existing buildings that had become derelict following the social and economic up­heavals of industrialization. The final chapter looks at the late flowering of architectural work in the region during the interwar period and beyond, and the legacy of this important body of work at a local and national level.

EXISTENCE journeys into the grand and mysterious corridors of the human condition. Touching on themes of love, birth, death, change, and nature; submerge your meditations into the truths of old world religions, mysticism, Eastern and Western philosophies, and new age awakenings. Listen to the insights of sages and rumors from Egypt, Mesopotamia, Rome, Asia, Greece, Africa and the Americas. Pry at the very roots and constructs of Jungian symbolism and ostensibly abstract thought. Brood over humanity’s outward manifestations of a collective and dynamic consciousness that lurks within the aboriginal self; suggesting a powerful struggle between concepts of inner and outer reality. McGill is searching for the delicate fragrances of ancient knowledge, perceptions, and primordial archetypes that like a thin, veiled mist, lingers dormant in the folklore, stories, mythology, tradition and art of our human progenitors, all culminating to impress the reader with a sense of our greater purpose in life. McGill, a classically trained and internationally acclaimed poet, was taught personally by contemporary and past masters such as the protégé of W.H. Auden, one of the greatest poets of the 20th century, and by the eminent naturalist and intellectual, Dr. Allen W. Eckert. McGill is best known for his advocacy of the poetic arts, and is the editor and author of the award-winning McGill English Dictionary of Rhyme, which is used by tens of thousands of writers from over 100 countries, and stands as the world’s most extensive rhyming reference ever created in the history of the English language.

Consuming Fashion


Consuming Fashion


$2.05


Clothing the body is one of the most complicated acts of daily existence. When a nun ponders red shoes, an architect knots his bowtie, a lesbian laces her Doc Marten’s, or a nude model disrobes, each is engaging in a process of identity-making that is both intensely personal and deeply social. In an increasingly material world, negotiating dress codes is a nuanced art, informed by shifting patterns of power and authority, play and performance, as well as gender, sexuality, class, ethnicity and race. Drawing on ethnographic knowledge to connect theory and practice, authors reveal links between material culture, social and economic forces and personal performance – from trade beads to Barbie, and from Taiwanese producer to Nike consumer – to explain clothing choices through time and across cultures. Conventional understandings of the self, subject and society are shown to be inadequate when examining the interconnections of cultural and transnational economic systems of production and consumption that have a profound effect on human choice. Social climates in which dress accrues meaning are increasingly global climates, where women’s bodies are commodified, gender categories are rigidly bound, and sweatshop labourers are slaves to boundless consumer appetite. This interdisciplinary book represents an important contribution to a fascinating and contested realm of human experience, and will be indispensable for anyone interested in the sociology, anthropology and psychology of fashion, cultural studies or the fashion industry.

This is a remarkable story. A newly retired schoolteacher goes to live in the countryside in the County of Clare in western Ireland. There he meets and gets to know a recent immigrant, an enigmatic character by the name of Gunna Dan. The hapless and helpless visitor begs to be told what life is all about in his new adopted abode and what it is that gives meaning and purpose to our existence here on planet Earth. What follows is a powerful exposition of discussion and argument. We witness a revelation of thoughts and ideas. We experience the pursuit of knowledge close up. We take part in a journey that leads us into new worlds of enlightenment and understanding; of purpose and meaning; of wisdom and kindness; of truth and spirituality; of religion and Christianity. And all of this happens within a wonderful medley of memory and reminiscence; of history and culture; of art and science; of philosophy and mysticism. The presentation of viewpoints and arguments is daring and evocative, to the extent that readers will be delightfully challenged to more positively re-examine the great importance of their own personal existence here on planet Earth.

Art/Porn: A History of Seeing and Touching


Art/Porn: A History of Seeing and Touching


$56.74


Do we really know pornography when we see it? Pornography is condemned for being “too close” while erotica is defended as “leaving room for the imagination.” And the art of the nude is treated as something much more special, located even further away from the potential of arousal. Art/Porn argues that these distinctions are based on an age-old antithesis between sight and touch, an antithesis created and maintained for centuries by art criticism. Art has always elicited a struggle between the senses, between something to be viewed and something to be touched, between visual and visceral pleasure. Images compel the senses in ways that are both taboo and intrinsic to art. Contemporary responses to images of the nude embody this longstanding tension. Our fears about the materiality of art when in close proximity to our own bodies exist in tandem with a regulation of sensory response which dates back to Antiquity. Art/Porn reveals how-from fondling statues in Antiquity to point-and-click Internet pornography-the worlds of art and pornography are much closer than we think.

The alien influences behind the rise and fall of Egypt?s Golden Age? Explains how Akhenaten was the last pharaoh entrusted with the sacred and ancient alien knowledge of stargates, free energy, and antigravity technologies? Reveals how the Brotherhood of the Snake, a secret society of reptilian aliens, sought to destroy Akhenaten and suppress the sacred knowledge of the pharaohs? Explores the original purpose of the pyramids-to transmit energy to expand consciousness-and how they were decommissioned after the Great FloodThe sophisticated civilization of ancient Egypt arose seemingly overnight, complete with advanced levels of art, agriculture, astronomy, and physics. Then, with the death of Pharaoh Akhenaten, much of this higher knowledge was lost-or suppressed. But evidence of this former Golden Age, the alien visitors behind its rise, and those behind its decline still exists-some of it in plain sight. Examining the purposefully obscured reign of Akhenaten and Nefertiti, Xaviant Haze explains how they represent the last dynasty with access to the sacred knowledge of stargates, free energy, and antigravity technologies, knowledge handed down from an advanced interstellar race in the remote past. He reveals how the reptilian race known as the Shemsu Hor infiltrated the Egyptian priesthood and banking systems and formed the Brotherhood of the Snake-a secret society set on destroying Akhenaten?s flourishing kingdom and suppressing the sacred knowledge of the pharaohs. Haze examines the evidence of aliens in ancient Egypt, such as the reptilian beings depicted in the Temple of Hathor and Thutmose III?s alien encounter. He shows how Akhenaten and his family are always portrayed with elongated skulls and explores the connection between ancient aliens and Mars, including the Martian materials used in Egyptian monuments. He explains the original purpose of the pyramids-to transmit uplifting energy throughout the planet

The genre includes a broad range of subjects: action-adventure, romance, sports and games, historical drama, comedy, science fiction and fantasy, mystery, horror, sexuality, and business/commerce, among others. Since the 1950s, manga have steadily become a major part of the Japanese publishing industry, representing a 406 billion yen market in Japan in 2007 (approximately $3.6 billion). Manga have also become increasingly popular worldwide. In 2008, the U.S. and Canadian manga market was $175 million. Manga are typically printed in black-and-white, although some full-color manga exist (e.g. Colorful).
