Introducing the Pagan Children’s Series of Books

Pagan Children series

What is an Altar?

It’s with great pleasure that Immanion Press announces the first book, What is an Altar?, in our Children’s books for Pagans.

Rowan Moss has written the book What is An Altar? and T.S. Lamb has illustrated the book. It’s a perfect way to introduce your children to Paganism and What is an Altar? is now available for pre-order.

What is an Altar? is a companion-reader book for children and parents, exploring the basics—what an altar is and how one can be created and utilized.

Whimsical illustrations and purposefully upbeat and simple language will delight the eye and open communication.

Each book in the Pagan Children Learning Series is a beginner’s introduction that allows room for discussion of your family’s own beliefs in every lesson!

Nothing but a pack of cards

Nothing But a Pack of Cards by S. Rune Emerson

We’re excited to announce that Nothing But a Pack of Cards by S. Rune Emerson is now available.

In this handbook on the practice of sorcery using tarot cards, S. Rune Emerson utilizes the Rider Waite-Smith tradition of tarot art to teach the myriad practices of the Art Magical.

Included in this book are:

A modern look at sorcery through the eyes of the Rider Waite-Smith tarot cards and their derivatives, including laws and fundamentals of magic, and how magic actually works.

An explanation of the twelve categories of commonly cast spells, the six kinds of magical initiation and quickening, and the four great tenets of a sorcerer’s philosophy, all encoded within the Major Arcana.

Methods and ritual practices which help you employ the basic principles of sorcery, and learn how to become a sorcerer.

A series of spells and techniques crafted from the study of the Pip and Court cards, as well as appendices on group work and ritual tokens.

And more!

Any magician, whether long-experienced or just beginning, will find unique and useful information in these pages. If you want to learn how to use that tarot deck for more than just card games and fortune telling, this book is for you.

A Traveler’s Guide to Initiation is now available!

A Traveler’s Guide to Initiation

A Traveler’s Guide to Initiation, by Katessa Harkey and Jonathan Mooney is now available.

‘A Traveler’s Guide to Initiation’ condenses into a single volume all of the necessary materials a practitioner would need to absorb in order to give informed consent to the processes of Hermetic initiation.

How do we create strong community in such a diverse context as Hermetic spirituality? In cultures and magical systems throughout the world, initiation serves to forge group identity. However, Hermetic group practice has its hazards. It is imperative that these issues be clearly and honestly addressed as we build our magical groups. Only a properly prepared magician can give the full force of his or her will to the operation. And all those to come after.

Necromantra by Philip Emory is now available!

A revised edition of Philip Emery’s strange and wonderful science fantasy novel, including a new story ‘Kafka’s Terrace’.

In the Hundred, the working folk are kept in order by the masters who administrate the various mills, pits and manufactories. Strict records are kept in town halls, every death certified despite a crushing mortality. However, the old grim certainties face a new threat with the arrival of the necromancers – dark-skinned pilgrims who, by the chant of a strange mantra, are able to raise the recently dead, thus throwing the immaculate records of the town halls into chaos.

In retaliation, the masters appoint a number of rectifiers to each town. Reviled and feared by most of the Hundred, their job is to ‘re-decease’ the ‘discrepancies’, as the risen are labelled.

Ars Vercanus by Vasilios and Lynn Wennergren is now Available

Ars Vercanus is now available!

For as long as humanity has existed, there have been those skilled in the occult arts. Such individuals are capable of transforming the self, perceiving the subtle aspect of existence, and affecting reality via nonphysical means. In every culture, across every era, shamans, magi, mystics, and seers have refined their arts. This has produced a rich and varied collection of magickal techniques and rituals. Ars Vercanus presents a comprehensive system of core magickal techniques and theories distilled from an in-depth cross-cultural analysis of various magickal traditions. The theories of Vercanus Magick impart a deep understanding of how magick actually works. Vercanus techniques clearly delineate methods by which magick may be effectively performed. This style of magick entails a profound shifting of consciousness, facilitating an enhanced perception of reality. Through this expanded consciousness the practitioner perceives the deeper aspects of reality within which magick occurs. The techniques of Vercanus Magick entail the mastering of consciousness and internal energies. This mastery induces a profound transformation in the magus. Thus transformed, the magus is capable of shaping reality at its deepest level.
