Other books by Skylight Authors!

It is our great privilege to bring you new work by these wonderful authors but we would like to take some time to honour some of their past achievements. As they are quite a prolific bunch it was hard to select just one previous work  – but here goes.  We hope you will follow up on their many other titles.

Polarity Magic: The Secret History of Western Religion by Wendy Berg & Mike Harris

It recognises that the most powerful creative force is found in the fundamental energies exchanged between a man and a woman. It exalts, rather than negates, human sexuality in spiritual and magical endeavour. This book explores the hidden traditions of the Western mysteries, focusing on the divine feminine and the sexual dynamics of magic. It shows why the feminine principle must be restored to magic, and offers practical magical examples of how this may be done. Sympathetic reconstructions of priest and priestess rituals are offered, which feature ancient historical and mythological couples such as Isis and Osiris, Taliesin and Ceridwen, Arthur and Gwenevere, Merlin and Gwendydd, and Akhenaten and Nefertiti. The magical implications of the relationship between Mary Magdalene and Christ are also addressed.

The Inner Guide to Egypt: A Mystical Journey Through Time & Consciousness by Alan Richardson & B. Walker John

Step into the mystical Henu Boat of exploration and begin a spiritual journey into Inner Egypt through astral travel techniques. This unique book guides you on a powerful self-initiation into the Egyptian Mysteries. As you travel along a river of inner consciousness symbolised by the Nile, you will visit sacred sites and see how each is linked to psychological and physiological aspects within. Bring Ancient Egyptian traditions to life and infuse your soul with the potent energies of the gods through guided meditation, creative visualisation, and other spiritually enriching techniques. Discover the dreamlike beauty and ageless wisdom of this magical land-and discover the divinity in yourself-as you learn about: The Great Pyramids, Hieroglyphs, Burial rites, Ka and Ba, the Egyptian concept of soul, Isis, Thoth, Osiris, and other deities.

An Introduction to Ritual Magic by Gareth Knight & Dion Fortune

This is something of a rare event in esoteric publishing — a new book by the legendary occultist Dion Fortune on the theory and practice of ritual or ceremonial magic. Gareth Knight contributes a companion chapter on each subject. Conventions of occult secrecy in Dion Fortune’s day prevented her from being too explicit on details of practical magic. The veils having now been drawn aside Gareth Knight gives much that Dion Fortune might well have added if she were writing today. He gives details of practical occult workings of recent times, and a full ritual script explaining its method of performance and construction.

Home of the Gods by Hugh Fox

Does the landscape of classical Hindu myth coincide with the geography of South America? Is Mount Meru, the Mount Olympus of Hindu legend, actually Bolivia’s Tiawanaku mountain? How is the language of the Incas related to Sanskrit? Here is a entirely new way of looking at the New World prior to Columbus. Here the journey begins…to the Home of the Gods.

Stones Witness by Margaret Randall

Nine miles down a primitive trail, over hills of sand and rock, across ankle-deep streams, and around mires of quickmud lies Kiet Seel, a thirteenth-century ancestral Puebloan ruin. This is the place, ancient and enduring, from which Margaret Randall begins her meditations in Stones Witness. Randall explores her connections to land and landscape, history and culture, language and memory, drawing from the events of her own rich history to create a universal link between place, time, and identity. A fluid and provocative collection of poetry, prose, and photographs, Stones Witness is in part an account of an extraordinary woman’s radically committed and inventive life.
