RITUAL OFFERINGS
Edited By Aaron Leitch
Nephilim Press, 2015
List Price: $67.99


FROM THE PUBLISHER:

Spirits are not merely an option or tool to be utilized when the magician deems it necessary. Spirits are the very heart and soul of all magick. A consecrated talisman has a spirit attached to it that contributes to the talismans power, the incantations we use work because the spirits heard them and acted. We are not alone when cast cast our spells; our patrons and familiars are always present present casting the spells with us.

Throughout history, ritual offerings have been the central pillar of all magick and religion. Very often, a magickal ritual consists of nothing more than the making of a prescribed offering to a particular spirit in a specified time and place, yet here in the West, the making of an offering has been equated with the worship of the spirit receiving it. The act of offering a spirit something as payment for services rendered has a close association with the dreaded “pact with the Devil,” by which a magician surely sells his soul to damnation, but to the rest of the world an offering is intended to feed and empower a spiritual entity, and to pay it fairly for its aid.

The art of making proper offerings to the spirits is a complex one, rife with strict protocols and warnings, but if you take the time to learn this ancient and powerful art, it will supercharge your magick like nothing you’ve experienced before.

Strictly Limited to 900 numbered copies and filled with over 280 pages of essays and actual photos of author’s ritual altars, Ritual Offerings unites twelve practicing occultists who share their knowledge and experience with this fascinating and important subject. Traditions from around the world such as Solomonic magick, Tibetan Buddhism, New Orleans and Haitian Voudou, Western Hermetic Theurgy and more are discussed in great detail. Regardless of your tradition, Ritual Offerings will guide you in feeding your patrons and familiars safely and effectively and contribute to our overall success and growth as a practitioner.

SEVEN SPHERES
by Rufus Opus
Nephilim Press, 2015
Price: $52.50


FROM THE PUBLISHER:

"There are few in the field today that have both technical expertise and a genuine love of the spirits. A man who is as on-fire with the Holy Spirit as a tent-revival preacher, but who can make complex evocation instruction as clear as your ABC's. Rufus Opus is that kind of Priest-Magician. For years he has been making laying down his brand of hermetic magic with style and sass on his blog and in his courses. Now with this book, he will be blowing open the gates for an even wider audience."
-Jason Miller, author of Sex, Sorcery, and Spirit-

"Rufus Opus is a frequent speaker and panelist at Crucible convention that features active magical leaders from known and exotic paradigms. He has shown a great ability to add a combustive dynamic to his life through his own personal workings." – Arthur Moyer, Omnimancer, host of Crucible Convention

"Rufus is a well-educated and experienced occultist who firmly knows and strongly communicates his field without scaring or dumbing down for an audience. He is one of my go to authors for collected works on the topic.” – Andrei Freeman

Seven Spheres is more than a simple book of traditional Hermetic Magic. It is designed to be a series of rituals that function on many levels to take an average ordinary magician and turn them into a self-actualized powerhouse of proactive reality engineering. It’s entirely about attaining initiation and empowerment in the highest levels of un-manifest reality. These experiences and rites result in the release of a floodgate of power that pour down through the layers of progressive manifestation, building up awareness, understanding, and ultimately raw potential as you move from sphere to sphere through the rites, ultimately culminating in the anointing of the magician as Priest-King directing the forces that climax in your personal daily experience of the Joy of your life. This book isn’t about physical or spiritual mastery, it is entirely about understanding that you, personally, are beloved, honored, blessed, and highly favored of every intelligence, spirit, angel, and god of every sphere. This is about understanding who you are and what you can accomplish as a human being manifest upon the surface of the Earth. Spiritual enlightenment and material mastery will be yours, if you do the work described.

Nota bene: This book is a stand-alone series of rites that empower you, and it WILL change your life if you buy it and do the magical rites as described in the book. However, it is also intended to be a textbook for a series of courses provided by Rufus Opus. If you are interested in additional training, useful information, and the camaraderie of becoming an awesome expression of God doing what thou wilt as you see fit in the company of others, please contact rufusopus@rufusopus.com

CRYSTAL GAZING
By Northcote W. Thomas
Nephilim Press, 2015
List Price: $31.50

FROM THE PUBLISHER:

Crystal Gazing is a facsimile of an original manuscript by Northcote W. Thomas, a prominent anthropologist, who did a very serious study on crystal gazing and scrying techniques in use all over the world. Thomas is able to present the information in an easy to read manner that takes all of the guesswork out of the processes in use throughout the book. The Nephilim Press edition contains a full transcription of the original text and includes all of the images that are often omitted from later editions. “The Speculum and how to use it, Incantations and Calls, Egyptian Scrying, Experiments, Evidential Cases, and a Comprehensive Bibliography,” are just some of the chapters in this work that make it such a valuable reference. Crystal Gazing is the perfect companion to Gateways Through Stone and Circle as It contains a wealth of information on the process of Scrying and the use of a “SCRYER” as well as the Speculum and ritual hardware. This is a fantastic reference for anyone who is experimenting with Frater Ashen Chassans techniques and its study will greatly aid the practitioner in making serious progress with his experiments.
