When the Dragon Wore the Crown by Don Cerow jpeg Ibis Press

When the Dragon Wore the Crown
Center and Circle
Don Cerow

When our ancestors gazed upon the skies thousands of years ago they looked up into the center of Creation and saw a mighty Dragon, a great celestial serpent with wings circling ceaselessly above them, night after night, century after century. When the Dragon Wore the Crown is a ground breaking book that covers a period of over six thousand years, focusing on what astrologers would call the Ages of Gemini, Taurus and Aries and taking us through the period of classical astronomy with the Greeks and Romans (approx. 7000 BC–200 AD). When the Dragon Wore the Crown opens and closes with the Chinese mythological tradition and touches on Sumerian, Babylonian, Phoenician, Hindu, Norse, Native American and even Mayan myths, weaving together many of their celestial serpentine similarities.

The Dark Lord by Peter Levenda jpeg Ibis Press

The Dark Lord
H.P. Lovecraft, Kenneth Grant, and the Typhonian Tradition in Magic
Peter Levenda

One of the most famous—yet least understood—manifestations of Thelemic thought has been the works of Kenneth Grant, the British occultist and one-time intimate of Aleister Crowley, who discovered a hidden world within the primary source materials of Crowley’s Aeon of Horus. Using complementary texts from such disparate authors as H.P. Lovecraft, Jack Parsons, Austin Osman Spare, and Charles Stansfeld Jones (“Frater Achad”), Grant formulated a system of magic that expanded upon that delineated in the rituals of the OTO: a system that included elements of Tantra, of Voudon, and in particular that of the Schlangekraft recension of the Necronomicon, all woven together in a dark tapestry of power and illumination.

Crossing the Healing Zone by Ashok Bedi jpeg Nicolas Hays

From Illness to Wellness
Ashok Bedi, M.D.

The medicine of the 20th century was about the treatment of illness. The medicine of the 21st century is about wellness.

The journey through the Healing Zone that Dr. Bedi proposes is guided by archetypes and myths, active imagination, dreams and synchronicities, and the neuroplastic mysteries of our complex physical reality. Dr. Bedi outlines how to work with psychological and soul processes in moving from illness to wellness, and provides practical methods and techniques that can help readers access and engage the Healing Zone. The book contains informative and visual guidelines and practices that can help us create and manage our own personal wellness programs and become full and active partners in our own journeys from illness to wellness.

Inititiation in the Aeon of the Child (Now in Paperback)
The Inward Journey Book I
J. Daniel Gunther

In 1904, The Book of the Law declared the advent of a new period in the course of human history-- The Aeon of Horus, or Aeon of the Child. The doctrine codified in the Book of the Law and the numerous other Holy Books known as Thelema revealed Aleister Crowley as the Prophet of the new Aeon.

In this ground-breaking book, author J. Daniel Gunther provides a penetrating and cohesive analysis of the spiritual doctrine underlying and informing the Aeon of the Child, and the sublime formulas of Initiation encountered by those who would probe its mysteries. Drawing on more than 30 years of experience as a student and teacher within the Order of the A.·. A.·. the author examines the doctrinal thread of Thelema in its historical, religious, and practical context.
