Ancestral power : the dreaming, consciousness, and Aboriginal Australians by Lynne Hume( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Ancestral Power, Lynne Hume seeks to further our understanding of human consciousness by looking through a Western lens at the concept of the Dreaming." "She examines the idea that Aboriginal people may have used certain techniques for entering altered states of consciousness. Could their experiences in such states, together with their extensive knowledge of their environment, have helped to create the cosmological scheme we call the Dreaming?" "With these questions in mind, she brings together and examines, for the first time, a wide range of existing literature on Aboriginal cosmology and spiritual practices, together with studies of Aboriginal art, data from anthropologists and ethnomusicologists, and statements by Aboriginal people from many different regional areas of Australia. Much of the information she highlights is little known."--Jacket

With chapters on Sufism, Vodou, modern Pagans, as well as painted and tattooed indigenous and modern Western bodies, the reader is swept along on a sensual journey of the sight, sound, smell and feel of wearing religion."--Publisher's description

Witchcraft and paganism in Australia by Lynne Hume( Book )

What is witchcraft? What is paganism? And why are these ancient practices still with us? Alternative spiritual beliefs are attracting increasing numbers of followers in Australia and around the world. Focusing on Wicca, or witchcraft, Lynne Hume explores some of the mystery surrounding the diverse range of pagan practices and beliefs, and dispels some commonly held misconceptions. Hume's innovative multidisciplinary study examines the historical roots of pagan beliefs, and how pagan world views relate to contemporary environmentalism, feminism, morality and mainstream religions. It discusses the rituals of paganism, the notion of magic and what constitutes spiritual experience. Based partly on the author's own experiences, and rich with anecdotes from Australian Pagans, Witchcraft and Paganism in Australia is full of insights into this intriguing social phenomenon
