From the Publisher

The kitchen has always been the center of the home. The Goddess Vesta was the goddess of the hearth. While we don't cook on hearths today, we do have kitchens where we practice our spiritual concepts, since the food that we cook, and the herbs and aromatics we use to change the consciusness are prepared here--whether we use a stove or a fireplace. This is a book about how to permeate your home with your work, and will appeal to people interested in wicca, shamanism, neo-paganism, or those who practice any religion that deals with developing inner strength, love, and healing. Janet Thompson discusses medicinal and magical herbs, spells, incense, tokens, amulets, working with color, aromatherapy, crystals, purification, baths, ritual, moon phases, the pathwork to the crone, the witches wheel (the festivals), and recipes. She provides practical insights for people who are just starting to live the pagan way!

Jordan's Magic Sorcerers Continue to Be Sought After

Amman, Jordan. Taken by Alice Bonfatti. Used with permission. The demonological conception of Islam regards the “jinn” (الجن‎‎), anglicized as “genie”, as a servant of Allah, similar to the human. What makes the subject of magic practices and beliefs in Jordan all the more fascinating is the conflicting relationship of simultaneous opposition and tolerance between religion and “the Occult”. Indeed, Islam does not reject the existence of magic; quite the contrary: several Quranic verses refer to magic-doing, if only to condemn the practice. When asked by Global Voices whether he believed in ma

Ancient Astronaut Aryans: On the Far Right Obsession with Indo-Europeans

The following essay originally appears in Overland #266.

No one knows who they were, Or what they were doing . . . It is true we do not know much about the Druids. We know even less about their forebears, the Indo-Europeans, who truly did live “before the dawn of history.” The Indo-Europeans left behind no Stonehenge, no trace of a writing system, no paintings of themse
