    ISBN: 1861631626

    This book delves into the magical past of the British Isles as a means of finding out how our ancestors approached the Land: not as a piece of dirt, but as a being who they felt was alive and immanent among them, how that relationship developed, evolved, and ultimately how it died. More than this, the book shows how we can re-forge those bonds of friendship, for the benefit of the whole planet. It gives practical guidelines about creating your own sacred power site, irrespective of who you are or where you live, and it shows us how to truly communicate with the spirits of nature still living alongside us in the world at large.

    Guiding, Masking & Ritual Animal Disguises in the European Tradition

    Nigel Pennick

    Events with personation or guiding, which involves the suppression or transformation of individuality, are at the heart of European traditional performance. Like a religious service, the performance is perfectly valid even when there are no spectators. The ritual context of human activity expresses the symbolic and psychological function of the event taking place, creating a communion between spectators and performers. In this book, most of the customs are written in the present tense, for it is clear that they are not just things of the past which therefore are gone for ever. Some authors who base their writings about customs and traditions only on old accounts, give the impression that many if not all of them, have ceased to exist. When we read an ancient poem, sing an old song, or play a drama that no-one has stages for a century, we are not reviving or re-enacting them, we are making them present.

    Paperback 430 pages

    What would you do if you were sitting quietly in your living room when two mysterious strangers appeared from out of nowhere and then told you they were ‘ascended masters’ who had come to reveal some shocking secrets of existence and teach you the miraculous powers of advanced forgiveness. Would you call the cops? Call a psychiatrist? Call out for a pizza? When two such teachers appeared before Gary Renard in 1992, he chose to listen to them (and ask a lot of questions). The result is this startling book: an extraordinary record of 17 mind bending conversations that took place over nearly a decade, reorienting the author’s life and giving the world an uncompromising introduction to a spiritual teaching destined to change human history.

    From the poppies of Flanders — symbols of sleep and oblivion — to the purity of the lily and the faery associations of the daisy, flowers have always been surrounded by myths, magic and mystery. This illustrated guide explores the physical and symbolic properties of the best known and loved flowers of the Western hemisphere, including the bluebell, lily, anemone, poppy, daffodil, iris, rose, and many others. Each flower is described in terms of its botanical properties, its origins, the folk-lore and history that surrounds it, and how it is used for health and well-being. All plants are inextricably linked to the science, culture, religion and economics of the world. Some are used to heal, others become symbols for worship, others a trading commodity or status symbol, Flowers can indicate political allegiance, romantic passion, sympathy and social class. They are universal symbols of ephemerability and purity, and of the natural cycles of birth, death and regeneration. Packed with a wealth of information, this is a unique guide to the myth, magic and wisdom of flowers.

    ISBN: 1861631189

    Examines Sir Walter Scott's lifelong obsession for the ballads of his native Scottish Borderlands. The book looks not only at Scott's editing and publication of his 'Minstrelsy of the Scottish Border' - a valuable source for musicians and folklorists alike, but also his own composition of songs and ballads. The ballads themselves are examined in proper historical perspective, and their origins traced back in some cases to the same ancient bardic sources from whence medieval minstrels derived their own inspiration. In addition to collecting the ballads themselves, Scott went to considerable effort to investigate much of the folklore surrounding them; as well as researching the legendary transitions of the areas where the ballads were originally composed. This shows that Scott was as much concerned with preserving the essence of the oral culture of which these ballads were a part, as he was with preserving the ballads themselves, portraying him as the true successor to the minstrel tradition, which can be traced right back to the magician Merlin and the Dark Age poets of the Arthurian period. We can thus recognise Scott for what he truly was; the last of the true bards.

    Paperback 130 pages

    Thea Holly has always loved trees and couldn't imagine living in a world without their presence. She has, for a very long time, believed that there exists a parallel stream of evolution that encompasses a hierarchy of beings who attend to the needs of the Natural World. She now knows that this commitment extends to the Human Race also. Her love of trees has grown with each passing season and she decided to write about them after seeing a tree spirit. Thea is well aware that the notion of trees communicating will never by accepted by the vast majority of people, at least while they remain on this side of life. She does not claim that trees have a language that only she can receive, but believes that the lessons we can learn from each tree species can be absorbed by anyone willing to open themselves up to the energy of the trees in order to benefit from their ageless wisdom. These words will differ from person to person, but the underlying message will always be the same. Depending upon your level of understanding, the words will suit your ability to receive that message. At the end of the book Thea outlines how you can link in to the energies of a tree to gain healing, guidance and support.You do not have to be psychic in order to benefit from the abundance that is present in Nature, you simply need to be willing to open up your mind to the infinite possibilities that exist all around us.

    Gardner, Laurence

    ISBN: 0007142935

    Paperback 560 pages

    This title brings together the mysteries of the legendary quests for the One Ring (the ring that governed all kingdoms) and the Holy Grail, full of Arthurian romance, myth, fantasy and fable. It relates the lore of Tolkien to historical fact, and attempts to determine who was the original Lord of the Rings. Who were the Ring Lords? They were the ancient race (4,000 BC) from whom the Kings of Ireland and the early Kings of Scots emerged. Gardner reveals the Ring Lords as the ancestors of both King Arthur and of Euro-Asian culture as a whole, debunking the traditional belief in the sources of Greece and Rome. The enchanting history of the ancient Ring Lords has been preserved in mythological tales of battles between good and evil. This book explores this netherworld of fantasy and fable, appealing to fans of the Arthurian myths. Gardner also reveals that well-known characters such as King Arthur and Robin Hood originate in the time-honoured realm of the Scythian Ring Lords.

    This is a true account of strange happenings in the lives of Josephine and her immediate family. These incidents add strength to the theory that life is a continuing and developing cycle of energy-experience through time. Over a long period of time these incidents inter-related with each other to produce evidence of earth energies, reincarnation, inter dimensional communicated wisdom and the need for the rescue of souls in limbo. Josephine offers the suggestion that in the Aquarian age, we each need to seek the knowledge of our own reality, and that it is only through this Gnosis that we will be able to cope with the dangerous tendencies and detrimental influences that are beginning to pile up on the horizons of the future.

    Ancient Wisdom & Modern Meanings

    Adrian Cooper

    Sacred Nature: Ancient Wisdom and Modern Meanings explores how 150 modern travellers reconcile their spiritual faiths with the challenges of interpreting wild, natural environments: tropical habitats, deserts, frozen landscapes, seas and oceans. It is an exploration of how these travellers from North America, Europe and Asia find their faiths variously compatible with a detailed knowledge and understanding of the natural world. For eleven years, between 1985-1996, these travellers worked with Adrian Cooper talking, listening, sharing and learning from each other. They discussed their personal discoveries of sacred treasures in this planet’s wild, natural areas. They drew inspiration from stories and journeys which were marked by awe and wonder as well as intense physical hardship, loneliness, despair, bereavement, profound contemplation, renewal, healing and enlightenment. Some of these journeys have contained the most important turning points in these travellers’ lives.

    After the Introduction chapter which discusses the need for humankind to reconcile the spiritual and scientific elements of nature, seven other chapters explore these travellers’ journeys in North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa, the Middel East, Asia and Australasia. The Conculsions chapter draws together the major lessons of the book, and presents readers with an inspirational challenge to discover for themselves the incalcuable value of finding their own ways of appreciating natural environments through the eyes of spiritual wisdom.

Phenomenal healings, Extra Sensory Perception(s), prayer, meditative thoughts plus synchronicity, all play major roles in these researched accounts. Many of those involved have said they ‘do not believe in God’, others were devout in their religiosity.

    The Journey Home

    Ref: B041-7

    Chris Thomas

    Channelled writings have had their relevance and many are of great importance to humankind at this time of transition. However, none have attempted to tackle our basic, fundamental longing for answers to the age-old questions: Who are we? Why are we here? Are we alone? What relationship does Earth and its multitude of lifeforms have to themselves and to the universe as a whole? The answers to many of these questions have been available since mankind appeared on the planet, but over the centuries have become hidden by personal interests and clouded by repetition and dogma. As humankind undergoes a vast shift in consciousness, the underlying reasons for humankind’s existence have to be rediscovered and put into their proper perspective. This book brings these issues into a sharper focus and sheds light into some of the darker corners. Gone are the dark days of Karmic re-cycling and suffering; we have reached the time of the birth of a new human existence so far removed from human experience that most have not yet recognised its coming.

    Cope, Julian

    HIS LONG AWAITED AND MUCH HAILED GUIDE TO ANCIENT BRITAIN

    Julian Cope is a truly extraordinary figure. Having achieved fame as the lead singer of post-punk band The Teardrop Explodes, he went on to forge a solo musical career, building up an extraordinary cult following and a media reputation as one of Britain’s more colourful visionaries.

    For the last eight years Cope has devoted himself to travelling the length and breadth of the British Isles in a passionate quest to reclaim the ancient heritage of this land. This book started with a curiosity about the ancient sacred sites that lay scattered around his home, close to the Avebury Stone Circle. As he began to explore the rest of the country, he realised how little knowledge most people have of the wonderfully rich pagan heritage of this land. Finding out as much as he could, often searching through antiquarian journals and early travel guides, he also realised that practical directions to and information about many of our sacred ancient sites were simply not available.

    This inspired Cope to start working on his own guide to ancient Britain. His travels have been tireless and intrepid, taking in the most remote places of the Isles. Many of the sites he writes about have only ever had a cursory mention in other guidebooks, and have often not been physically visited by the authors of those books. But Cope’s research has been rigorous, and the book is packed not only with practical directions, academic references, maps and photos, but also with richly evocative fieldnotes and poems written directly on-site.

    The essays at the beginning of the book take an imaginative leap back to the dawn of civilisation, when our ancestors worshipped the Earth as Mother and erected great stones in her honour, and hills and rivers were seen as aspects of divinity. Cope makes new connections between places, rivers and names in a way that will inspire people into a new awareness of their land. The gazetteer section exceeds all previous guidebooks of sacred Britain in its extraordinary depth and range.

    The Modern Antiquarian is more than just a book – it is a remarkable fusion of scholarship, practical advice and visionary insight, fully illustrated throughout with a wealth of beautiful images, including photographs taken by the author. Whoever picks up this book will be given a powerful sense of the treasures hidden in our British countryside and the sacred traditions of this land.

    “Erudite(his references range from Pope and Blake to D.H. Lawrence and T.S.Eliot), articulate and lucid”

    DAILY TELEGRAPH

    “If Cope’s forthcoming book on British Prehistoric Sites has as much impact as Krautrocksampler, then expect the pathways to our most far-flung moorland monuments to be worn deep into the trenches.”

    SUNDAY TIMES MAGAZINE

    Julian Cope has written two previous books, Head on and Krautrocksampler. Both received extensive press coverage.

    The Universal Soul

    Ref: B273-8

    Chris Thomas

    ISBN: 1861632738
    Paperback 196 pages

    Our Universe explores the ‘what if’ of freedom of choice. Every soul here has the right to choose their own actions, their own directions. The only ‘law’ that applies is that no one can choose to act in such a way as to remove the free choice of another. Part of the ‘what if’ of this Universe was also to explore the possibility of fully ‘physical’ beings being created. This exploration of the physical has led to the existence of the Earth and all of the life that our Earth supports — a miracle of creation. Nowhere else does an abundance and joy for life exist to the extent it does on Earth. One thing has sustained this Universe above all else: the Earth must be saved at virtually any cost. With humanity finally finding the answers to a question we asked ourselves 20,000 years ago, we are beginning to move forwards into a new phase of existence and this process of change is having an effect on the Universal energies that is beyond our full understanding. As we move into our new state of being, many questions arise within each individual. This book is a deeper exploration of the Akashic to try and find the answers and brings The Journey Home, The Fool’s First Steps and Planet Earth - The Universe’s Experiment fully up to date.

    Paul Gater

    ISBN: 1861632630

    A world without flowers – being denied the joy of their brightness of colour, scent and form – would be unthinkable. Paul Gater has spent over 40 years as a horticulturist, working in harmony with the natural world, in close proximity to flowers, trees and plants. This sensitive book conducts the reader through time and place to the loving heart of the flower spirits themselves. But exactly why should this be? We acknowledge their beauty yet we take flowers almost for granted. Throughout history, for various reasons, the immensely uplifting feeling of seeing, experiencing and being near to flowers, particularly if we have grown them ourselves, has made us very aware of their deeper significance. Topics include a brief history of flowers, mythology, flowers as healers, the languages of flowers, flower faeries (of various different kinds), flower names given to people – flower invocations, traditional prayers and rhymes - and in general their own symbolic meanings and long relation with mankind. Personal thoughts on intuitive appreciation of tending a flower garden throughout the year – the well-being of one’s physical self, plus the spiritual significance of flowers realised as a result.

    Dilys Gater

    ISBN: 1861632541

    What are star children? Aliens and extra-terrestrials including UFOs, ‘walk-ins’, Venusians etc.; Angels and fallen angels — extremely gifted beings including those who have some kind of arrogant/prideful block to their spiritual progress; The sacrificial scream — Higher souls which undertake to provide the sacrifices in this life on behalf of the others; Atlanteans, Lemurians, Ancients, including ancient pagan souls and those with roots in other civilizations; Messiahs, Star People, ‘Seeds’, Light Bearers, Ascended Masters. This book includes information on: why are they here, what do they do, how they recognise each other, etc. Cult-like concepts of ‘us and them’ bring barriers and boundaries where there should be none. This is a wide-ranging but open-ended picture — none of the star children really know, or can say, exactly ‘where’ they have come from to the exclusion of other ‘others’. The only criterion is the feeling of ‘other’ itself.

    Julia Day

    ISBN: 186163143X

    The two and a half year diary of a Pagan publisher, housewife and mother. If you really want to get to know a place and have it come to know and love you, then visit it at all times of day and season, and in all weathers. Julia observes the changing seasons in an area of woodland and a seasonal lake. As the wheel of the year turns, animals live and die, plants blossom, flourish and become dormant and the human idea of timescale is set against the great wheel of the seasons. What can the trees tell us? What can the seasons teach us? How does human time compare to the cycles of the Earth and the even greater timelessness of the rest of the universe? And through it all, threads the everyday experience of one, very temporal, human being.

    Ann Walker

    ISBN: 1898307873
    Paperback 120 pages

    Your Talking Pet is about ‘companion animals’, the cats dogs who live in our houses and are called ‘pets’. For various reasons, we selected these two species to share our homes and our lives and the result is mutual dependency; they on us for their well-being, we on them for companionship, love and even to boost our self esteem. Sometimes there is a total misunderstanding between us, at others we share a bond that is as strong as any we have with our own kind. Packed with interesting facts and real-life stories, some funny and some sad, this book about people and pets will strike a chord in the heart of everyone who has ever lived with, and loved, a cat or a dog.
