The Hekatæon is in essence a Hymnal to Hekate: an ecstatic work dedicated to the Maiden-Serpent-Wolf, and manifested by her divine grace. Forged by the author’s personal journey, this grimoire maps out a series of serpentine windings that lead the reader through a labyrinth of songs, spells, chants and invocations to the very throne of the Queen of Crossroads herself.

Crossed keys is a chimeric binding of both The Black Dragon and the Enchiridion of Pope Leo III in a fresh translation by grimoire magician MC. They are complementary grimoires, spanning the very earliest example of the genre to the late bibliotheque bleue period. Together they comprise a wealth of spells, spirits, lore, talismans and psalm magic, with their head in the highest heavens and their feet in the deepest hells. This is the first time they have been bound into one volume.

 

VIA TORTUOSA: An Exposition on Crooked Path Sorcery by Daniel Schulke (SPECIAL Deluxe Leather Bound Limited Edition Hardcover in Custom Slipcase) Import

 

Special deluxe leather bound edition of only 19 copies this being number 16, with marbled endpapers, silk sewn in ribbon marker housed in custom slipcase.

Book is in new unread condition.

‘Crooked Path Sorcery’ is a term originating within the Cultus Sabbati, particularly within the ritual corpus of the Draconist, used to describe the antinomian and oppositional nature of its quintessence. This sorcerous ethos is extrapolated in such Cultus works as Qutub, The Dragon-Book of Essex, and Lux Haeresis, but its roots in fact are older, animating many historical strands of sorcery. Particularly relevant to witchcraft ritual and the perception-distorting powers of the Witches’ Sabbat, the book places especial emphasis on the ‘crooked’ figure of the witch and her Art, examining historical instances and their dispersion into the modern occult workings of the Sabbatic Current. Through the devices of magical analysis, exhortation and homily, the essence of the Crooked Path and its associated byways are directly explored, illuminating the mystical convolutions of the Arcanum.

Also new in this volume is an Author’s Preface, as well as Robert Fitzgerald’s rare 1996 interview with Chumbley in Esoterra. The 1999 article ‘Gnosis For the Flesh Eternal’ appears here for the first time, being a much-expanded version of ‘Wisdom For the New Flesh’ which first appeared in Starfire. For this second volume, we have also included nine Azoëtia-era illustrations which have never before seen print.

Published by Xoanon

Let not the Eye of the Seer be divided from the Body Entire. Even in stasis so-call’d, image-revelation is kinesthetic, for the motions of the Beholding Eye are driven by the contours of signacula comprising the image in totality, and which first arose from the dancing Hand of the Divine Artist. Thus, in Beholding, the flesh of all Image is venerated by phantom-touch; caressed, as it were, by the Eye, in adoration …thus the Beloved becomes the Witching Apple.

This book of the Scythe-Bearer provides a solid theoretical, historical and mythical foundation for the Cult of the Left-Handed Reaper, and offers clear instruction for ritual practice connected to both the folk-magical tradition, as well as the more sinister, hidden line of traditional witchcraft connected to the Cult of the Skeletal Lord of the Bloody Scythe. The basis for the various forms of magic presented in Liber Falxifer is a dark form of telestic fetishism steeped in the forbidden and concealed traditions of both necromantia and necromageia, as practiced within the many clandestine magical paths connected to the Lord of All Graves.

The Gates of the Devil’s Throne open within Belial’s Earth for devoted souls of the Trident to feast upon Hecate’s Kalas, ignited in Lucifer’s Flame, as the Great Daughter conjoins with the Body of the Beast to align inner and material planes.

THE LEAPER BETWEEN: An Historical Study of the Toad-Bone Amulet; Its Forms, Functions, and Praxes in Popular Magic by Andrew Chumbley (Limited Edition Hardcover)

First Edition, First Printing.Small octavo. The hardbound issue, bound in full Japanese bookcloth with gilt toad device, art paper endsheets, limited to 231 copies. 66 pp.

‘The Leaper Between’ is scholarly essay concerning the little-know ritual of obtaining the witches amulet known as the toad-bone. Known to rural folk magicians and secret societies such as the Society of the Horseman’s Word, the exacting ritual of killing a toad to obtain the bone of power has been documented in various forms and cultural milieus for two millennia, though its origin is likely far older. Focusing on extant forms in Britain and Europe, Chumbley traces the metamorphosis of the toad-bone amulet from its beginning as a talisman for controlling animals to its ultimate manifestation as a conduit of diabolic power of the ‘Toad-Witch’. The first academic study of this little-known aspect of folk magic, The Leaper Between is here presented in unabridged form, newly typeset in a fine binding worthy of its fascination. It will be of interest to students of comparative religion, magic, and folklore alike.

The 2nd edition of this book was limited to 700 copies in total, and is hand-numbered

Book is in fine unread condition.

Liber Falxifer is the long awaited book that reveals the secret teachings of the Necrosophic Cult within the Current 218. This book of the Scythe-Bearer provides a solid theoretical, historical and mythical foundation for the Cult of the Left-Handed Reaper, and offers clear instruction for ritual practice connected to both the folk-magical tradition, as well as the more sinister, hidden line of traditional witchcraft connected to the Cult of the Skeletal Lord of the Bloody Scythe.

HOLY DAIMON by Frater Acher (Limited Edition Hardcover) Import

KHIAZMOS: A Book Without Pages by Andrew D. Chumbley (DELUXE Leatherbound LImited Edition Hardcover in Slipcase)

This deluxe edition is in new unread condition and is limited to only 72 hand numbered copies, half bound in leather and marbled boards in custom slipcase

The grimoire articulates the paradoxical arcanum of Opposition — an essential dynamic force of Sabbatic Witchcraft — which animates the Art of Magic itself, through aphoristic formulae. Like the mystical formats of the riddle, parable, and koan, the book utilizes strategies of arcane, recursive exposition to express transcendent truths about magic, the spirit world, the stance of the sorcerer, and the Sabbat of the Witches. The living book, as conceived in the Vision of the Scribe, possessed the power to transcend its material corpus, and simultaneously write and unwrite itself as it was read, creating the titular ‘absence’ of pages. The title is derived from the Greek “chiasmus”, indicating a literary, or rhetorical, device in which concepts are expressed in a forward or standard form and then in reverse order. Each aphorism may thus be viewed as an absence and a presence.

 

LUCIFER: Princeps by Peter Grey (Deluxe Leather Bound Hardcover in Custom Traycase) Import

Dawn Breaker’ edition bound in full emerald morocco, all edges gilt, custom peacock marbled endpapers, and presented in a solander traycase. One of only 81 hand numbered copies.

Lucifer: Princeps is a seminal study on the origins of the Lucifer mythos by Peter Grey. It is the first in a two volume work; the companion volume, Praxis, being an exposition of ritual actions, is due to be published in 2016.

The fall of Lucifer, and that of the rebel angels who descended upon the daughters of men, comprise the foundation myth of the Western occult tradition. Lucifer: Princeps is a study of origins, a portrait of the first ancestor of witchcraft and magic. In tracing the genealogy of our patron and prince, the principles that underlie the ritual forms that have come down to us, through the grimoires and folk practices, are elucidated. The study draws on the extensive literature of history, religion and archaeology, engaging with the vital discoveries and advances of recent scholarship, which render previous works on Lucifer, however well intentioned, out of date. A concomitant exegesis of the core texts conjures the terrain and koine of the Ancient Near East, the cradle cultures and language of his nascence. Of critical importance are the effaced cultures and cults that lie behind the Old Testament polemics, viz. those of Assyria, Ugarit and Canaan, as well as Sumeria, Egypt and Greece; they provide the context that give meaning to what would otherwise be an isolated brooding figure, one who makes no sense without being encountered in the landscape.

Description

The transgressive cultus of the wild, blood-thirsty and demon-slaying Matrikas (“little Mothers”) is amongst the most fascinating but least treated areas of South Asian spirituality and magic. Exploring the rich history of the Matrika Cult as well as the tantric background in which it has survived, Ferocious takes the reader deep into initiatic terrain. The goddesses are examined as a group followed by chapters for each individual Matrika, elaborating Her unique origins, iconography and mantras. An appendix offers a full treatise on an eighth Matrika sometimes worshipped with the other seven.

OF COSMOGONIC EROS by Ludwig Klages (Limited Edition Hardcover) Import

Description

Theion Publishing is proud to release the first-ever English translation of one of the most important metaphysical works of the 20th century: Of Cosmogonic Eros by the German visionary Ludwig Klages. This monograph is dedicated entirely to an in-depth examination of the mysteries of Eros and the most powerful forms of ecstasy. Here Klages presents a pandaemonic vision of becoming which is inextricably linked to an Eros whose elemental power shatters everyday consciousness and mates the individual to the secrets of the cosmos. The author seeks to restore Eros to his true status and function by carefully distilling his essence against all falsifications and distortions. Showing how Eros is related to Thanatos and integral to every true cultus of the dead and ancestral worship, Klages leaves no doubt that only the Eroto-Gnostic holds the keys to authentic Life and the daemonic empowerment of the Cosmos.

 

THE FACELESS GOD by Dr. Tomas Vincente (Limited Edition Hardcover)

One of only 700 hand bound limited edition hardcover.

Introduction by David Beth, Artwork by Mitchell Nolte, Complete with ritual instructions

This book of Left Hand Path theory and practice has been eagerly awaited since the first news about its coming-into-being was announced last year. We are certain that Dr. Vincente’s tome will meet the highest expectations and demands of all serious practitioners of the magical Art.

 

CHTHONIC GNOSIS: Ludwig Klages and his Quest for the Pandaemonic All by Dr. Gunnar Alksnis (Limited Edition Hardcover)

One of only 720 copies bound in Telluric Brown fine cloth.

This groundbreaking release is the first authoritative work on Ludwig Klages and his pagan metaphysics ever to be published in English. Without a doubt Klages is one of the most intriguing and enigmatic pagan thinkers of the early 20th Century. A figure of great controversy he radically rejected Christianity and Monotheism in favor of a pan-daemonic paganism. Advocating the return to primordial states of consciousness through magico-erotic encounters with the living powers of the ensouled cosmos, Klages was a driving force in the notorious Cosmic Circle of German mystics. Masterfully expounding his vision of daemonic Life in disciplines as diverse as philosophy, poetry, metaphysics, psychology and graphology, he influenced many important contemporaries such as Hermann Hesse, Walter Benjamin and the Frankfurt School, C.G. Jung, Martin Heidegger and others. The work of esoteric teachers such as Lama Anagarika Govinda, Michael Bertiaux and David Beth has been deeply inspired by the magical antinomian biocentrism of Klages. Misinterpreted, vilified and slandered, this great heretic and ‘high priest of the irrational’ remains virtually unknown in the English speaking world although his work may have never been more relevant.

MODERN AMULETS FROM ANCIENT SCRIPTURES by Gilles de Laval – Deluxe Leather Bound Limited Edition Hardcover with Bonus Extra Supplemental Amulets Leather Bound Limited Hardcover – Import

 

Regular price is $295 but for a limited time you can pick up this deluxe edition for $225. We only have a few of these in stock and we will sell them on a first come first serve basis.

 

One of only 50 copies. Both copies are bound in leather and hand numbered. Book contains 292 pages, supplemental book 147 pages.

Synopsis:

Gilles de Laval’s new book, Modern Amulets from Ancient Scriptures, is offered to the worldwide community of esoteric practitioners as an homage to the old Anna-Riva-style chapbooks that were so popular in the 1970’s through the 1990’s, before fading in popularity as the age of digital distribution began to eclipse neighborhood occult bookstores, curio shops, and botanicos.  Written in the same laconic style and laserbeam focus, Modern Amulets from Ancient Scriptures does one thing and one thing only:  it outlines the formulation of, then presents 174 amulets, newly discovered tucked away in those Hebrew, Greek and Arabic scriptures which are the underpinning of the western religious tradition.

While the texts they derive from are ancient, and the method of assembling them stems from centuries-old tried-and-true occult traditions and techniques we have all inherited, each amulet has never before been published, and the method itself is brand-new.  There is an amulet for almost every use, and, what’s better, each amulet design can be personalized limitlessly as they include tables to create personalized mantras to accompany any amulet’s construction and which can be intoned by the wearer.  It is the author’s deepest desire that in these times of trouble, the reader will find some comfort and joy in rediscovering not only our rich spiritual heritage but a newly minted offering of practical and applied magic in the spirit of the old esoteric bookstore chapbooks, which changed the face of occultism for a generation, took the ideas of magic out of the hands of elite orders and secret societies and made their lofty concepts available to a universal audience.

Gilles has authored five previous books:

 

Black Magic Evocation of the Shem ha Mephorash

The Explicit Name of Lucifer
Sacerdotium Umbrae Mortis
Sefer Yeroch Ruachot

Published by Become A Living God

From the publisher:

Have you ever wondered…

Why have Judeo-Christian, Western governments legalized alcohol, but criminalized entheogens?

Why have Christian politicians waged a “war on drugs” against magick substances proven to empower and heal the mind?

Why is the mind-depressing substance legal, while the mind-expanding substances are illegal?

If it is not a matter of safety — because alcohol poisoning harms more people than smoking cannabis or eating mushrooms — then why have religious politicians warred against entheogens from medieval time through modern time?

To Summarize This Medieval Religious War: Christianity Vs. Paganism.

Or to rephrase it: the Rite of Alcohol vs. the Rite of Entheogens.

Quite simply, Christians imbibe alcohol as a libation or ritual sacrament, i.e., they drink the blood of Jesus — while pagans, witches, and shamans consume entheogens as a ritual sacrament, i.e., they enter possession with the Spirits, a.k.a. “demons.” When European conquerors sailed to the “New World” to exploit and colonize the Americas, they discovered “heathen savages” who consumed entheogens and oneirogens to commune with their pantheons of nature gods and Mother Earth.

The so-called “War on Drugs” by Christian patriarchs has occurred since the Middle Ages; it is far more than a 20th century prohibition, and has culminated in the worldwide mass-incarceration of cannabis users.

Christian Prohibition And The “War On Drugs” Has Demonized Magick Entheogens In Order To Persecute Shamans And Witches For Millennia

Christian elites do not want humans “to become godlike” and awaken to the “greater reality” of the Spiritual Planes. Christian elites want the human race to drink alcohol only, and submit to their authoritarian god to raise their ruling power. Therefore, Abrahamic priests demonize entheogens. Christians and Islamists fear-monger that humans become “possessed by demons” while consuming “the Devil’s plants.” It’s puritanical propaganda.

The “Biological Shortcut” To Spiritual Enlightenment… Here’s How One Experience With A Sacred Plant Has Triggered More Evolution In Me Than 10,000 Hours Of Ritual

Entheogen means “to create a god within” or “to become divine within” or “to become godlike.” It derives from Latin, en “in”, theo “god”, and gen “create”. The word enthusiasm derives from this etymology also, “to become filled with god” and “to become possessed by god.”

As a black magician who has performed ritual for over 10,000 hours, it pains me to admit this to you, because I still believe in an “old school” work ethic, but…

My carefully administered experiences with entheogens have awakened and empowered my ascent as much as any of my top, most lucid rituals. In other words, these sacred plants, also known as “the Devil’s plants” and “Herbarium Diabolicum,” give the shamanic magician a “biological shortcut” to open-eyed gnosis with deities, along with an irreversible paradigm shift of enlightenment too.

If you simply cannot be bothered to perform 20 years of ritual to connect with the Spirit World, then a carefully administered entheogen will force you into it — GUARANTEED. You brain is evolutionarily hardwired to trigger heightened magick experiences when you consume entheogens and oneirogens.

Oneirogen means “to create a dream” or “to become dreamlike.” It derives from Greek, oneiros “dream” and gen “create.” It refers to substances that cause lucid dreams, enhanced dreaming, or dream-like waking experiences.

Humans Have EVOLVED With Entheogens On Earth For 200,000 Years, And Entheogens Have Probably CAUSED Human Evolution… Like Super Mario Eating A Mushroom, They “Level Up” Your Power

Why? Because humans evolved through consuming entheogens like mushrooms, roots, flowers, seeds, and more. These magick substances triggered advanced evolutionary traits in early humans like empathy, love, free-spiritedness, and community. Moreover, it awakened their perception of the multi-verse by opening their Third Eye to Spirits on the Astral Plane beyond this Physical Plane.

The truth is that sacred plants open the doors of communication between the Humans and the Spirit Worlds. When we become aware of our inner universe, we discover that we as a Spirit are simultaneously the whole universe and each of its parts combined. The divine plants are simply a shortcut to unifying the macro and micro, thus triggering a lasting sense of spiritual enlightenment.

A “Prohibited” Demonic Grimoire Of Shamanic Witchcraft For Left Hand Path Magicians… Let A REAL Colombian Shaman Show You How To Harness The Godlike Power Of Entheogens For Open-Eyed Gnosis With The Qliphothic Gods & Goddesses

Hello friend, I’m E.A. Koetting. The sinister shaman, Edgar Kerval, and I have penned a new double-grimoire called Herbarium Diabolicum and The Poison Path, including a companion video course featuring my ritual pathworking and insights. It’s a collaborative grimoire that combines the forces of two spiritual fields for advanced gnosis. This double-grimoire combines:

Demonic black magick, a.k.a. Qliphothic Magick
Indigenous entheogenic spirituality, a.k.a. Shamanism
Book 1. Edgar Kerval’s “Herbarium Diabolicum” Grimoire Features More Than A Simple Apothecary’s Cookbook Of Recipes, It Pioneers Ancient Shamanic Witchcraft Into A Guide For Modern Demonic Ascent

An authentic shaman who lives in Colombia in South America, my coauthor Edgar Kerval, provides you a four-part book with 18 chapters, every one of them showing you how to access the priceless magick power hidden within a panoply of forbidden, sacred plants, while pathworking through demonic realms of The Tree of Qliphoth. Edgar gives you exact step-by-step recipes for formulating organic potions, tinctures, powders, and more concoctions. However, Herbarium Diabolicum is much more than simply an apothecary’s cookbook — it is packed with invocations, conjurations, meditations, and evocations to open the Gates of the Abyss.

Book 2: E.A. Koetting’s “The Poison Path” Grimoire Reveals Illicit Shamanism For The Dark Adept Through Uncensored Records Of His Real Life Experiences With 13 Entheogenic Gateways

My candid confessions and careful counsel in book two, The Poison Path, open your Third Eye to multiple realities through a multitude of psychotropic substances — each substance opening a doorway within a cosmology of parallel Spirit Worlds. It allows you to access hidden realms and secret dimensions, and their native knowledge. In The Poison Path, I highlight 13 key substances, or 13 entheogenic gateways, each of them activating magick powers, abilities, and insights, and each of them extracting unique sacrifices from you. In The Poison Path, I reveal the lessons that I myself learned through experimenting with these doorways, and I pass along those same insights to help you navigate these often dangerous and perhaps even deadly paths.

Anyone can open the doors and receive their treasures, but you must beware the pitfalls of addiction and destruction, for which many of these substances are notorious. As a unique feature, The Poison Path discloses how to experience “flashbacks” to revive high-powered, life-changing magick experiences without needing to consume those same substances again.

And my favorite part — these two grimoires together form the world’s most comprehensive guide to the darkest and most powerful methods of sinister shamanism without requiring submission to an initiatory hierarchy, oaths of secrecy, or arbitrary vows of loyalty to me and Edgar.

Exposing The Ancient Abrahamic Conspiracy Against Indigenous Shamanism
Truthfully, an ancient Abrahamic conspiracy against magick entheogens has occurred for two thousand years. It has propagandized you and the masses to view psychotropic fruits as “evil” and “demonic.” However, a flicker of hope has finally appeared in the form of legalizing cannabis, and possibly also psilocybin mushrooms. Regardless of whether you personally would like to consume entheogens to explore evolutionary magick states, you deserve to know the REAL TRUTH about these forbidden fruits.

This deluxe hardcover edition is limited to 72 hand-numbered copies, handbound in black French Morocco and with marbled end-papers. Specifications: Octavo format (148 x 210 mm), 130 g. voluminous two side-coated paper with 140 g. marbled end-papers.

Ceremonial magic is by its nature an art defined by mysticism and mystery, which is to say, by obfuscation. This is doubly true of goetia, with its frightening demonic drama and its grandiose claims. The impenetrable allegories, the coy vagueness, the secrets and initiations, the smoke-and-mirrors… These things are integral to the sorcery, they are part of what makes it work, and so they cannot be lightly tossed aside to assuage a skeptical public. All sorcerers are liars, and there is good reason for it.

Quick review of SHARP PRACTICE: The Ritual Dagger in Bön Sorcery and Vajrayana Buddhism by Robert Fitzgerald, Limited Edition Hardcover

Sharp Practice: The Ritual Dagger in Bön Sorcery and Vajrayana Buddhism by Robert Fitzgerald is a quick yet deeply thoughtful study of the Phurba, a stylized dagger used by practitioners of the ancient Bön animist practice and Vajrayana Buddhism.

Bön originated from the pre-historical country of Zhang Zhung, a geographical area that once included Tibet and predates Buddhism by many millennia.

It is an instrument of both destruction and manifestation, division and unity. The ritual dagger is a very versatile tool in the Bön magicians took kit and one that could and perhaps should be considered by the modern magician in their own magical practice. It can be used equally as well in white or black magic. However, as with any powerful magic the magician should be warned against its haphazard use.

“…warnings are given repeatedly that the work of the dagger is fraught with danger and perils…”

We find that the Phurba has many qualities that western occultist will resonate with as it has similarities to the magicians wand, athame, witches coffin nail, the needle of the voodoo portioner and yes even the working tools of a Freemason. The Phurba is used in rites of exorcism, binding of demonic forces and the achievement of enlightenment from dualistic thought.

“The Phurba is a multiplicity unto itself: at its most sublime it is manifest nature of mind, or buddha-nature. It is also the nail of exorcism that frees a plot of land of noxious spirits and penetrates the vile body of the enemy…the maras Demonicentities that harass and cause illness in humans.”

Of particular interest to me in this unique book is the magical workings of Nail Sorcery, whereby nails or daggers are used to curse and pin down one’s enemies.

“Other rituals using human bone kila were very popular in India, in Vedic times, and no doubt in secret up to the present day, but especially ones in which the effigy (or in some cases an actual human victim) is pinned down and stabbed repeatedly in the groin and throat. The purpose of such barbarity is clear, for with these two physical locales are vital chakric centers of power without which the victim becomes powerless, and in the case of a living human being, inevitably dies of pain and blood loss.”

Although this book shines a scholarly light on the Phurba used in Bön and Vajrayana Buddhism there are golden nuggets to be found for practitioners of all magical disciplines and has a rightful place in any occult library.
