TRADITIONAL BRAZILIAN BLACK MAGIC
  

The Secrets of the Kimbanda Magicians

By Diego de Oxóssi, Foreword by Hendrix Silveira

Publisher, Destiny Books (August 31, 2021)

Paperback, 128 pages

List Price: $16.99   


FROM THE PUBLISHER:

A guide to the history and practice of Kimbanda, the black magic tradition of Brazil


• Explains how Kimbanda’s presiding deity Eshu embodies both masculine and feminine principles, both god and devil, and thus represents human nature itself with all its vices and virtues


• Discusses Kimbanda’s magical practices, initiation rites, sacred knives, and sacrificial offerings


• Details the seven realms and the entities that inhabit and govern each of them


Although it has been demonized as a form of Satanic cult, Kimbanda--the tradition of Afro-Brazilian black magic--is a spiritual practice that embraces both the light and dark aspects of life through worship of the entities known as Eshu and Pombajira.


Exploring the history and practice of Kimbanda, also known as Quimbanda, Diego de Oxóssi builds a timeline from the emergence of Afro-Brazilian religions in the 17th century when African slaves were first brought to Brazil, through the development of Orisha cults and the formation of Candomblé, Batuque, Macumba, and Umbanda religious practices, to the modern codification of Kimbanda by Mãe Ieda do Ogum in the 1960s. He explains how Kimbanda’s presiding deity Eshu Mayoral embodies both masculine and feminine principles, both god and devil, and thus represents human nature itself with all its vices and virtues.


Discussing the magical practices, initiation rites, and spiritual landscape of Kimbanda, the author explains how there are seven realms, each with nine dominions, and he discusses the entities that inhabit and govern each of them. The author explores spirit possession and Kimbanda’s sacrificial practices, which are performed in order to honor and obtain the blessing of the entities of the seven realms. He discusses the sacred knives of the practice and the role each plays in it. He also explores the 16 zimba symbols and sigils used to attract the spirits most apt to realizing the magician’s will as well as traditional enchantment songs to summon and work with those spirits.


Offering an accessible guide to Kimbanda, the author shows that this religion of the people is popular because it recognizes the dark and light sides of human morality and provides a way to interact with the deities to produce direct results.


DIEGO DE OXÓSSI is a Chief of Kimbanda and Orishas Priest. For more than 20 years he has been researching and presenting courses, lectures, and workshops on pagan and African-Brazilian religions. He writes a weekly column at CoreSpirit.com and is the publisher at Arole Cultural. He lives in São Paulo, Brazil.

ÁSATRÚ FOR BEGINNERS:
 

A Pagan Guide for Heathens to Discovering the Magic of Norse Paganism, Viking Mythology and the Poetic Edda

by Melissa Gomes

Publisher; Melissa Gomes, Paperback 

List Price: $19.95 


FROM THE PUBLISHER: 

Are you curious about Asatru, but don't know where to begin? Or maybe you want to learn more about the myths and legends surrounding our Northern Gods?


Either way, by the time you've finished this book, you will be well on your way to embracing the Viking Spirit and all it has to offer.


Asatru is the religion of pre-Christian Northern European tribes, ancestors of modern Scandinavians and other Germanic peoples, who practiced it before the introduction of Christianity to Europe. Asatru is based on Norse paganism and mythology. It embraces a complex heathen worldview that includes the belief in several deities, concepts about death and the afterlife, an understanding of cosmology, and magic and runic beliefs.


In Asatru for Beginners, best-selling author Melissa Gomes takes you on an enlightening and entertaining journey into Norse paganism. You will emerge from this guide with a solid footing in the basic principles of Asatru as a modern way of life. Melissa shares her own experience in discovering the Norse gods and goddesses, as well as ways to incorporate them into your everyday life. She provides a thorough introduction to mythology and its importance to Asatru, followed by an exploration of the magical practices that make up its core. Melissa's passion for the subject shines through every page of this book. Whether you have been studying Asatru for years or are just starting out, be prepared to learn something new!


Yet, the true essence of Asatru and heathenry is within ourselves. It is how we live our lives - by following the virtues of honor, courage, and integrity daily. Our connection with those who have gone before us strengthens our bonds with each other as Heathens. The Asatru religion is an experiential one. Symbols are powerful, and how we use them can define us as a people and can shape our Pagan path:


In Asatru for Beginners, you'll learn all you need to know to start working with the Norse gods and goddesses as a pagan, including:


  • The origins of Asatru and Norse Paganism

  • A brief history of Asatru or Heathenism in modern times, with an in-depth look at the modern Asatru movement

  • Information on Norse cosmology, including the Nine Worlds of Yggdrasil and the cosmological significance of the sun and moon gods

  • Details about each god and goddess in Norse Mythology

  • How to honor and work with the Norse deities, including a list of recommended devotional practices

  • The Nine Noble Virtues and how they can inform your life today and throughout everyday

  • How to celebrate holidays, honor and work with ancestors

  • How to perform Viking Magic by creating your own Blot and rituals


By the end of this guide, you will have a working knowledge of the Asatru and the lore and history surrounding it. However, there is no shortcut or easy way around studying Asatru. Indeed, discovering Asatru can truly become a lifelong journey, but Asatru for Beginners is an excellent first step along the way.


Inside the book, you will also find three bonuses for you, go check them out!

ANCIENT EGYPTIAN MAGIC:
 

A Hands-On Guide

by Christina Riggs

Publisher: Thames & Hudson; Illustrated Edition (April 7, 2020)

Hardcover, ‎224 pages

List Price: $24.95 


FROM THE PUBLISHER:

An entertaining and informative introduction to how ancient Egyptians practiced magic in their daily lives.


In the ancient world, if you needed a love charm, wanted to contact your dead wife, or needed the ability to fly like a bird, the magicians of Egypt were the ones who could make it happen. In Ancient Egyptian Magic, Christina Riggs explores how the Egyptians thought about magic, who performed it and why, and also helps readers understand why we’ve come to think of ancient Egypt in such a mystical way.


Readers will learn how to cure scorpion bites, discover why you might want to break the legs off your stuffed hippopotamus toy, and uncover whether mummies really can come back to life. Readers can also learn how to save a fortune on pregnancy tests―urinating on barley grains will answer that question― as well as how to use the next street parade to predict the future or ensure that an annoying neighbor gets his comeuppance.


Was magic harmless fun, heartfelt hope, or something darker? Featuring demons, dream interpreters, the Book of the Dead, and illustrations from tomb paintings and papyrus scrolls, Riggs breathes new life into ancient magic and uses early texts and images to illuminate the distinctions between magic, religion, and medicine.


95 illustrations.

Bring more magic and enjoyment into the eight Wiccan holidays with this practical almanac's fun and fresh ideas for rituals, rites, recipes, and crafts. Featuring some of the best writers in the Witch and Pagan community, Llewellyn's 2022 Sabbats Almanac shares articles that provide new perspectives on each sabbat, complete with hands-on rituals and activities to help deepen your practice and sense of the sacred.


Call for the earth, animals, and spirits and become empowered by them on Ostara. Invoke the Great Mother and the Green Man to encourage fertility for Beltane. Honor the fairies for Litha and give back to the earth during Lammas. This almanac also provides crafts for each sabbat, including a story quilt for Yule, spinning fleece into yarn for Imbolc, homemade stepping stones for Beltane, and a knitted shawl for Mabon.
