Descripción del producto
""The Witches' Book of the Dead" by Christian Day is without a doubt one of the most in depth works on darker magic I have ever had the pleasure to read. The author skillfully describes the wisdom of the old wise ones, from myth and the true historic version, and unlike other writers he is unafraid to touch upon subjects such as Necromancy, the Veil beyond and the dangers of spirit work. I especially found myself enthralled by his section on the Altar of the Dead, as it brought forth the need for not losing sight of those who have gone before us. A true must have for anyone's occult library!" -Corvis Nocturnum, author of "Cemetery Gates: Death and Mourning through the Ages"
"I have known Christian Day for several years, and am proud to call him friend. That friendship - with its trials and triumphs - has only enriched me as a person and as a Witch. Thus, when offered to review his literary offering, I must confess to being truly honored. Sentimentality aside, and giving in to my innate bibliophile tendencies, I set to work.
Christian's book explores oft-ignored and much maligned aspects of the Craft. In reading its pages, I had the mental image of reading from one of the Black Books of antiquity. Contrary to popular McWiccan and PopPagan advocates, in all true persuasions of the Old Craft, we find the old Chthonic Powers holding court. The Cult of the Dead is the very life-blood of all true sorcery. His manuscript does much as an antidote, laying aside the Shadowed Veil in challenge to common assumption.
This book offers us an opportunity to regain our full place as men and women of power. True, power can be scary, it can be dangerous, it can be ad
"Christian Day's book is worth the price if only for the new scholarship on Pagan history and etymology. He reminds us of our historical links to the dead and of our role as mediums between the worlds, then goes on to show us how to reclaim that part of our magickal heritage. Even with the impressive scholarly bibliography, he remains easy to read. His practical information is based on personal research and experience, and is complete and clear. This is the only book I've ever read on contacting the dead or on necromancy where I've felt comfortable enough to put the information into action. Christian writes with wisdom and authority, and makes the reader feel safe and secure, knowing they are being lead through advanced ritual practices by someone who knows his stuff A-Z." -Edain McCoy author of "Advanced Witchcraft: Go Deeper, Reach Further, Fly Higher"
"Christian Day has given the magical community long sought after details on communicating with the elusive spirit world. "The Witches' Book of the Dead" offers contemplative, genuine methods, while written in a gratifying narrative style. Read it for the information other manuscripts have lacked. Reach for it often as an excellent resource book. However, enjoy it for the reading experience alone. Historical information compliments practical techniques, A simple must-have for every pagan. For the pagan who seeks better understanding of spirits they'll be thrilled so much is packed in one handy book!" -Sabrina The Ink Witch, "www.theinkwitch.com"
"As the long-time presenter of Salem's renowned Festival of the Dead, Christian Day has already proven that he is a man not afraid to venture into shadowy realms. Now, as the author of the ground-breaking "The Witches' Book of the Dead," Day escorts readers to the frontiers where the living and the dead intermingle, offering both mystical and practical advice for safe, happy coexistence. The Witches' Book of the Dead is packed with old lore, as well as information on cutting-edge technology. In these pages, you will discover clear, lucid instructions for contacting the dead, as well as explanations for why you might want to do so. While simultaneously emphasizing the sacred nature of his subject, Christian has written a fun, easy-to-read and easy-to-access instructional manual for interaction with the ever-present souls of the dead." -Judika Illes, author of "The Encyclopedia of Spirits, The Encyclopedia of 5000 Spells, The Element Encyclopedia of Witchcraft," and "The Weiser Field Gui
"Christian Day is a refreshing new voice and makes a dynamic debut in "The Witches' Book of the Dead", a book devoted to establishing true and meaningful communication with those on the Other Side. Day is a meticulous researcher, a talented and skilled practitioner, and a great writer who shares his knowledge and personal experiences with an engaging style and sense of humor. The history and folklore are fascinating, and every technique and ritual have passed the test of experience. Not only will you be informed and entertained, you will be inspired to action. This book is fresh, exciting, and like nothing you have ever read before!" -Rosemary Ellen Guiley, author, "The Encyclopedia of Ghosts and Spirits"
""The Witches' Book of the Dead" is a well-researched and thoughtful compendium of magical lore, necromancy, spirit contact and mediumship. It mixes a rich background of historical information with practical applications of ritual and magical practice. Day is not afraid to draw back the veil and peer behind it. Let him show you what he has discovered! A very good read; a volume full of worthwhile information." -Raymond Buckland, author, "Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft"
"If you are looking for yet another book from a new age ninny, feel-good guru or pathetically positive pagan, keep looking. Christian Day has written a book that that those who seek a connection to their dearly beloved dead will understand. There has been a trend in our society to sanitize death to the point where there is a service and three days of mourning. Christian sees this as a grave mistake to assume that the connection dies once biological functions cease. He taps into normal psychological and spiritual needs that occur after a devastating loss. Having known Christian for over a decade, he does not just write about how to communicate with the dead, but he has practiced these methods as he has experienced the deaths of close loved ones. He has learned that it can make one stronger and is brave enough to share his philosophy and practices with others. This book is empowering to those who feel that they have suffered a great loss, as they will learn just what can be gained. This
"Christian Day creates a heady blend of history, lore and real practice in his book on the necromantic arts. Without a doubt this is the most useful and unambiguous book available to the modern practitioner, one that is sure to become an occult classic." -Peter Paddon, author of "The Book of the Veil, Through the Veil, The Crooked Path, A Grimoire for Modern Cunningfolk", and "Visceral Magick"
"Employing the powers of the Sphinx: To Know, to Will, To Dare and to Keep Silent, we're grateful that Christian has ignored the "Keep Silent" part. Finally a decent book that brings a perceived malevolent practice into the light in an open, honest and very blunt fashion--the only way he knows how! Although necromancy is another useful magickal practice, it has been much maligned and avoided as taboo for centuries. This tome is a refreshing take on the balance of nature in working with the spirits of our 'dearly departed' as well as the Cthonic deities and entities from around the world who guide, guard and keep them. If you're one of those of the living who subscribes to the notion that magick is exclusively about love, light and life, and death is a subject to be avoided, put this book down. It is neither for the faint of heart, weak of mind or the fear enslaved soul but will appeal to magickal and mundane of all branches of spirituality from Wicca to Catholicism and beyond. And so,
Reseña del editor
Witches are creatures of magic. They cast spells, heal, and foretell the future. What you might not know is that Witches can also commune with the spirits of the dead.
