Magic and witchcraft : from shamanism to the technopagans by Nevill Drury( Book )

16 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 850 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Magic is as old as humanity itself. From the earliest animist view of a universe alive with potent spiritual forces to the emergence of Wicca and Neopaganism, the magical arts have provided a path to power in a mysterious world. This book covers Western magical thought and practice from earliest times to the present. Beginning with shamanism, the world's earliest spiritual tradition, it goes on to look at myth and magic in the ancient world, the quest for gnosis or sacred knowledge, and the emergence of the Kabbalah, alchemy and the Hermetic tradition. It discusses medieval witchcraft and the European and American witch hunts, the origins of the Tarot, and the esoteric philosophy of the Freemasons and Rosicrucians." "The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn in Britain, established in 1888, led to a twentieth-century magical revival. The controversial influence of Aleister Crowley, the rebirth of witchcraft and Goddess worship, the emergence of modern Satanism, the revival of interest in shamanism, the connection between digital magic and cyberspace -- a whole spectrum of modern magical practice and exploration is illustrated and explored. The subject here is high magic -- the active quest for personal transformation in order to harness a higher power. Magicians have always sought to tap into the strange forces of the universe and to use them for their own purposes, for good or for evil. Book jacket."--Jacket

Fire and shadow : spirituality in contemporary Australian art by Nevill Drury( Book )

7 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The concept of 'spirituality' conveys more than formal religious faith or belief - it relates to the sacred and transcendental dimensions of human consciousness and touches directly on the fundamental mystery which underlies the process of creation. Artists relate to this mystery in different ways - sometimes within the context of a religious tradition, such as Christianity or Buddhism, but more often in an instinctual, non-doctrinal way. Some artists relate their spirituality to the potentialities of human awareness - a sacred potentiality perhaps only partially glimpsed but innate to all human beings - while others see the spirit as an extension of the conscious mind. Others find the sacred within the earth, within rites of passage and transformation, and within archetypal mythologies from both East and West
