Shades in Mauve - A History of the Typhonian Tradition by Edward Gauntlett. Hardback, forest green cloth, gold endpapers, green and gold head and tail bands, sewn binding, gold gilt-stamping to front board, color frontispiece, several black and white sigil illustrations. The Typhonian Tradition is the purest recension of the ancient magical traditions. There is no physical apostolic succession of adepts down the ages.
Rather, the Tradition percolates through the minds of those capable of carrying it: poets, artists and creative occultists. From their works elements of it are projected in novel impressions down the ages. Shades in Mauve takes the form of an historical survey of certain streams that have fed the Typhonian Current from the distant past until comparatively recent times. Beginning with the most ancient headwaters in prehistoric Africa, it notes the appearance of springs and tributaries rising here and there throughout European history. Emphasis is placed upon the artistic and creative nature of the Current; an emphasis not amenable to a purely academic approach.
Kenneth Grant's work forms a constant undercurrent to the discussion. The text leads out from themes that initially appeared in The Magical Revival and elaborates upon some of the topics in that first volume of the trilogies. Occult Witchcraft Magic Sorcery Necromancy Voodoo Left Hand Path. KENNETH GRANT: A pioneer in creative occultism.
Kenneth Grant is a well-known occultist. Having been a student of Aleister Crowley, Kenneth Grant, with his wife, Steffi Grant, went on to create what is known today as the Typhonian Tradition.
He is mostly known from his Typhonian Trilogies books, consisting of these nine volumes in this order. Aleister Crowley and the Hidden God. Outside the Circles of Time. In these books you will find everything from Sex Magick, Qabala, Gematria, to alien praeter-intelligences who have established communication with magicians, sorcerers, and workers of arcane practices.
One of the most popular titles in the Typhonian Trilogies is Nightside of Eden, dealing with the reverse, dark side, of the Tree of Life and its demonic denizens. ALEISTER CROWLEY: The Great Beast, no introduction really needed here.Aleister Crowley is known by occultists and non-occultists. He wrote numerous books on Magick which are still being republished today. He is also widely known for his role as the head of the O.
Also known for establishing the religion of Thelema. From, Dion Fortune, Israel Regardie, Frater Achad, Madam Blavatsky, Gerald Massey, to more modern occult authors like Andrew Chumbley, N. 218, Daniel Schulke, Humberto Maggi, Dr.
Spare, Nicholaj de Mattos Frisvold, Michael Bertiaux, David Beth, Craig Williams, and many more. The books we offer expand numerous occult topics. The following are short definitions of some of them. Occultism: The definition of occult simply means hidden or unseen.The occult books we offer deal with what may be termed spiritual occultism. Dealing with the hidden, the unseen realms of spirits and spiritual energy.
Magick: This spelling for magic with a "K" was used by Aleister Crowley to define spiritual magick as opposed to mundane magic, such as pulling rabbits out of your top hat. Magick deals with spiritual forces within yourself and within the universe. Witchcraft: Historically, witchcraft was seen as a diabolical pact with the Devil. We've all heard of the witches riding to the sabbats on their broomsticks after anointing themselves with magical oils where they would dance and fornicate with the Devil and his homeboys. Today, however, witchcraft is not seen in the same light.
Though today's Traditional Witchcraft can incorporate some dark spiritual aspects, such as the modern Luciferian Witchcraft. Wicca, however, deals with pagan gods and goddesses and has a creed of "harming none" and is basically nature worship and spell-casting, and herbal work. Sorcery: The books we offer on sorcery you'll find are of a darker nature. Where darker aspects of occultism are employed in a folk-magic style.
Like in traditional witchcraft, herbs, oils, bones, dirt, colors, sigils and darker spirits are employed for tasks. Necromancy: Working with the dead. Necromancy uses various magical tools and techniques to speak with, communicate with, and call forth the dead. Necromancers usually employ human skulls, bones, and other items of the grave in their dark arts. Grimoires: Books of ritual magic instruction are usually termed grimoires.These grimoires have been around for centuries. Some teach you how to call up spirits of certain natures, cast spells, curses, make pacts with demons, and much more. Modern grimoires are what you will mainly find we offer. We live in the modern age, therefore, we try to offer grimoires more in sync with today's modern witch, magician, sorcerer or necromancer. Voodoo: The books we offer on voodoo are for the more serious practitioner. Our books on voudou, voudoun, santeria, palo mayombe are written by initiated students. Such as, Michael Bertiaux, David Beth, Nicholaj de Mattos Frisvold, Dr. These books are not geared toward teaching you "voodoo spells" but rather they focus on deep, African-derived spiritual systems. Be sure to keep checking back as we add new books regularly.
