Nouveau recueil dévotionnel !

Voici une nouvelle parution du groupe Neos Alexandria, un recueil dévotionnel, pour Hermès !! Je suis évidemment ravie, ça doit se voir, car c’est un Dieu dont finalement on ne parle pas beaucoup, et qui est pourtant tellement complexe !

He is the Messenger of the Gods and the Keeper of the Flocks, the Luck-Bringer and the Trickster, the Protector of the Home and the Guardian of the Road and all who travel it. Hermes is a diverse God of many names, talents, and masks.

Il est pour l’instant seulement disponible sur Createspace (du genre lulu) mais il devrait être dispo via Amazon d’ici un mois.

Nouveau livre sur le chamanisme européen/nordique

NEWS Décembre 2012 : le livre est désormais disponible ! Voir les différents sites de vente en ligne.

Juillet 2012 – Une parution à venir cet automne écrite par les deux « mastodontes » Galina Krasskova et Raven Kaldera, et qu’il faudra surveiller 🙂

« A step-by-step guide to working with the spirits of ancient northern Europe

• Explains how to build relationships with Earth, Sun, Moon, Plants, Animals, Water, Fire, Craft, Air, and the Ancestors through 83 practical exercises

• Explores the role of altered states in spirit work

• Outlines the ancient cultural rules and taboos to avoid spiritual debt or offense

We are all surrounded by spirits. Many people feel called to work with them, but few know where to begin. Enjoined by the gods and spirits to fulfill this need, Raven Kaldera and Galina Krasskova have reconstructed the indigenous spiritual traditions of northern Europe and Scandinavia extinguished more than one thousand years ago by the spread of Christianity. Arising from basic survival needs, these practical traditions are fundamentally tied to the elements found in the harsh world of the ancient North.

Beginning with the skills tied to the Earth element, necessary for grounding prior to the more demanding aspects of the practice–working with Sun, Moon, Plants, Animals, Water, Fire, Craft, and Air–the authors explain, step by step, how to build relationships with each elemental spirit and the Ancestors. Offering 83 practical exercises, from cleansing with the Moon or borrowing the legs of Reindeer to making sacred space with Mugwort or creating an ancestor altar, they also explore building spirit relationships through altered states. Emphasizing the proper management of your spirit relationships to avoid spiritual debt or offense, the authors outline the ancient cultural rules and taboos that circumscribe these practices, essential knowledge for successful and fruitful spirit alliances.

Detailing the beginning set of skills needed to work with the spirits of this ancient world, this comprehensive workbook offers a unique ancestral spiritual outlet for those of northern European descent as well as an accessible guide for anyone trying to fulfill their shamanic callings. »

Nouveau recueil sur la dévotion et le travaux avec les « esprits »

Dver sort un livre sur le sujet toujours aussi délicat des « spirit-workers ».


« Within the myriad traditions of modern polytheism, some are called to a deeper and more consuming level of engagement with the gods, spirits, and otherworlds. These mystics, devotees, shamans, god-spouses, seers, spirit-workers and others often must craft a unique path for themselves based on scraps of historical evidence, inspiration from colleagues and mentors, and guidance from the holy powers.

In a series of short essays and poems, the author explores this sacred terrain of spirit-work and devotional polytheism, drawing on her own personal experience, as well as placing these practices in the context of ancient traditions and overall modern paganism. Specific rites and relationships may vary widely between practitioners, but many of the struggles and epiphanies shared within these pages are universal. With a passionate, knowledgeable, and compelling voice, the author describes a spiritual vocation that can be harrowing and lonely at times, but also breathtakingly magical and profoundly fulfilling. »
