36 FACES The History, Astrology and Magic of the Decans by Austin Coppock (Special X Series Hardcover Limited Edition in Custom Slipcase)

There is a thread that runs through over four millennia of astrological and magical history, a cord that binds ancient Egypt with the Hellenistic world, the Arabian empire, India, the European Renaissance and even touches the present. That thread is the Decans, a division of the earth’s sky into 36 sections. These 36 ‘Faces of Heaven’ are more than just a curious footnote in the history of archaeo-astronomy. First emerging in ancient Egypt, they have moved with the corpus of Hermetic material, reincarnating in the starry wisdom of culture after culture.

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.

Published by Anathema Publishing LTD

 

From the publisher:

“As a transpersonal state, berserkergangr has attracted a host of theories that attempt to explain or rationalise it as a drug-induced frenzy, or insanity. Too few studies are open to the possibility of an enhanced state of spiritual intoxication, of ‘god possession.’ Being an ecstatic madness, that dedication to an extreme warrior code is more akin to the mysterious disciplines of the east that demand, privation, ordeal and self-sacrifice. It is the path of the zealot, the hero and the priest combined.”

Óðinn’s identity as the Ecstatic God of the Tethers of Law and Death, is least recognised through his Skin-Turning and Shape-shifting techniques as gifts of the highest craft he imparts to a shamanic warrior elite. Those themes are explored in this volume, alighting upon a wide range of magics and histories identified within the Óðinnic cultus. Medieval source materials yield a wealth of information relating to Totemism; Ritual Guising; the Berserkir and Úlfhéðnar as Óðinn’s True Wolf Warriors; Motifs of Magical Beasts in Battle; the Wælceasega as Carrion Host; the Law and Covenants relating to Wǽr-loga; Outlawry; She-Wulves; The Red Thread of Wyrd, Warding and Binding the Dead, Varðlo(k)kur – the call to spirit; Dragons, the Wyrm, and finally, to the malefic sorcery of the Dog Heads of War, The Zmei, The Roggenwolf and the Bukka, whose presence in the wheat, rye and barley knots of the blessed harvest grains, all wend a path through to the real St George, to Green George.

Enchanted thread, girdles, withies and staves, seiðr and the völur are woven through the time-honoured mysteries shared by Beowulf, Grendel and his brimwylf (‘sea-wolf’) mother. Nordic culture drew inspiration and influence from the magical and martial disciplines of the Sámi, Slavic, north-European and Eurasian peoples. Invoking the divine ecstasy of creation, Shamen priests and warriors, stand ‘outside’ time. Óðinn’s antinomian challenges generated considerable friction within societal ‘law.’ The dehumanisation of the skóggarmaðr (wild men of the forest) outlawed for following his rule, rendered them indistinct from the forest-wolf’s status, and were perceived as equal quarry. Transpersonal experiences shaped their realities, relating to identification through a clan totem, namely the wolf, and later the dragon, wyrm and raven, not merely as wild beasts of battle, but of ancestry, mind, of wit and wisdom.  Couched in ambiguities, the role of the Valkyrjur, the ‘handmaidens of Óðinn is re-evaluated, leading to a new conclusion for their association with (battle) carnage and the ‘Cult of the Dead.’

THE BOOK OF DEVOTIONAL SERVICE TO THE DARK KING OF FLAME: LUCIFER (Leather Bound Hardcover Edition)

 

It has come to our attention that only 1 or 2 exemplars ever were offered in the second hand market.

We have received over the past years many requests to have this book reprinted. And now here it is finally once again. We initially hesitated to do this reprint….simply because we don’t know how many people are actually interested in this grimoire.

The “Grimoire of Bhakti Yoga” is a book that serves as a prelude to the follow up grimoire titled “Psalterium Sathanas” by the same author.

In this book one will find guidelines and invocations for the purpose of contemplation and meditation and establishing a Spiritual connection to The Dark King Lucifer.

Provided are sigils to serve as focus points and invocations and mantras to be recited. Additionally is a theoretical essay/prose which is constructed in small sections which serve as a helpful means to set the appropriate mood and context in which the prayers, invocations and hymns should be understood and used in this practise of meditation and devotional service.

The text is titled “The Epistle of Sophia’s Luciferian Incarnation: Creation of Environmental Necessity for Man to acquire Wisdom and Divinity”.

This work is born out of passion, love and devotion to Sophia, Lucifer and Hekate.

The sole purpose of this book is to honour and give devotion to the Spirit.

AZOETIA: A Grimoire of the Sabbatic Craft by Andrew D. Chumbley 3rd edition (Limited Edition Hardcover)

As the incepting text of Xoanon Limited, Andrew D. Chumbley’s visionary book ‘The Azoëtia: A Grimoire of the Sabbatic Craft’ was first published in 1992 and is regarded as the foundation text of the Sabbatic Craft Tradition. The second edition of 2002 sold out within months of its release. Since then, exorbitant prices on the second-hand market have prevented ownership of this essential text. In response to growing interest in this work, and as part of the conservation and dissemination of the magical texts of the Cultus Sabbati, Xoanon Limited is releasing the third edition of ‘The Azoëtia’. The grimoire ‘Azoëtia’ is comprised of three main parts: an exposition of preliminary magico-aesthetic formulae with detailed descriptions of working instruments, the full text of the Sabbatic Rituals of Ingress, Congress, and Egress, and an eleven-chaptered grimoire detailing the arcana and composite practices of the Sacred Alphabet – the twenty-two lettered code of sorcerous principles underlying the practical spectrum of the Arte Magical. The entire work intends the reification of traditional British cunning-craft praxis according to the spiritual vision and artistry of a contemporary initiate.
