Hidden treasures of the golden dawn by Rick Falconer
This work has been written for all, from the novice to the experienced, pagan, Wiccan to high magical etc. Far from being a highbrow organisation the Golden Dawn is specifically designed to develop the awareness of the novice to a greater magical and spiritual understanding and development through the gradual leaning and employment of tarot, astrology, geomancy and ritual etc., and its membership includes many pagans in its fold. Indeed many of the more pagan minded rituals we have today have their roots in the Golden Dawn structure. The spiritual journey all are on is a journey, which began long before each was born into this realm, which is why there are no beginners. Written from the heart the primary function of the book is to give a little further direction for individual spiritual development to flourish. With this the volume develops into an expression of deep universal spiritual truths, negating nothing of current spiritual persuasions, no matter the path or tradition.
Wheel Of The Year Pagan Mythology Retold- Drew & Sophie Kenaz
The book is intended to give an overview of the stories that revolve around the festivals that make up the wheel of the year.
It has been written in particular for those who are either just interested or new to Paganism and can even be used to read to children.
