Reiki Subversives Manual now Available

The Reiki Subversives Manual

The Reiki Subversives Manual introduces a radical new approach to energy healing. The author encourages practitioners to become Reiki warriors and urban healers, and to explore Reiki in a whole new light. This book includes previously unseen Reiki techniques and methods, through which Hernesson demonstrates how you can use Reiki to heal yourself, your community and the Earth – and how you don’t even have to be attuned to Reiki to accomplish this. While many of these techniques can be employed by practitioners of any energy healing system, the book includes a basic method for using Earth energy, as well as a process to connect to Reiki, so you can begin urban healing yourself.

This exciting new book on Reiki covers:

Reiki self-defence

The Ripple Effect: healing methods for you, your community, and our Earth

Healing with the power of the Earth

Reiki activism: healing your environment

Urban Reiki subterfuge: ‘street washing’ and the ‘Reiki blast’

First ‘energy’ aid

A wide array of new Reiki attunements – including ‘one touch’, ‘breath’, ‘singing’ and ‘holding’

New spiritual technique: ‘The Reiki Darshan’

Love, the heart centre and e-gasms

The Reiki Subversive’s Manual offers revolutionary new techniques that can aid you to heal our world for the good of all.

The Reiki Subversive’s Manual is now available.

New Fiction Titles for June 2017

We’re pleased to announce two new fiction titles this month. First up is Storm Constantine’s ‘A Raven Bound with Lilies: Stories of the Wraeththu Mythos‘.

Wraeththu – a new species or the next step in the evolution of humankind? Androgynous, and stronger in mind and body than their human predecessors, Wraeththu rose from the ruins of human civilisation to start afresh. New custodians of a battered planet, they have a choice:  work and grow to become worthy custodians of the world, or succumb to the lingering humanity within them, and perish as their forerunners did. Naturally magical, often possessing unearthly beauty, and sometimes deadly, the Wraeththu have captivated readers since Storm Constantine’s first novel, The Enchantments of Flesh and Spirit, was published in 1988.

9781907737800

Since then, the author has completed three trilogies, three novellas and numerous short stories. This anthology collects all her published Wraeththu stories into one volume, and also includes extra material, including the author’s first explorations of the androgynous race and their world, dating back to the late 1970s.

From the ‘creation story’ Paragenesis, through the bloody, brutal rise of the earliest Wraeththu tribes, when hara fought for control and power, (Pro Lucror), and on into a future where they have overcome their savage beginnings, and strange mutations are starting to emerge from hidden corners of the earth, (Painted Skin), the fifteen stories within this book explore different shades and colours of the Wraeththu world.

With sumptuous illustrations by official Wraeththu artist Ruby, as well as pictures from Danielle Lainton and the author herself, A Raven Bound with Lilies is a must for any Wraeththu enthusiast, and is also a comprehensive introduction to the mythos for those who are new to it.

The second new titles is from Rhys Hughes, a prolific creator of strange and wonderful short stories. Salty Kiss Island collects for the first time Rhys’s fantastical love stories.

What is a fantastical love story? It isn’t quite the same as an ordinary love story. The events that take place are stranger, more extreme, full of the passion of originality, invention and magic, as well as an intensification of emotional love. Also, the voice that tells them has rather a different tone to a conventional romantic narrator.

9781907737770

The stories in Salty Kiss Island are set in this world and others, spanning the spectrum of possible and impossible experiences, the uncharted territories of yearning, the depths and shoals of the heart, mind and soul. They are adventure yarns, whimsies and comedies, tragedies and paradoxes. They are melancholy, gleeful, philosophic or mystical. A love of language runs through them, parallel to the love that motivates their characters to feats of preposterous heroism, luminous lunacy and grandiose gesture. They include tales of minstrels and their catastrophic serenades, dreamers sinking into sequences of ever-deeper dreams, goddesses and mermaids, sailors and devils, messages in bottles that can think and speak but never be read, shadows with an independent life and voyagers of distant galaxies who are already at their destinations before they arrive.

The authors of these books are available for interview, as well as guest posts on blogs, and review PDF copies can be applied for by mailing info(at)immanion-press(dot)com.

Nothing But a Pack of Cards – New Release

We’re pleased to announce the release of S. Rune Emerson’s new book, ‘Nothing But a Pack of Cards’.

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.

If anyone would like to review this book, please mail us for a PDF at editorial(at)immanion-press(dot)com. The author is also available for interview.

Black Lives Matter

Black Lives matter

At Immanion Press, one of our missions is to support social justice causes in the Pagan community. This is one of the reasons we’ve published anthologies such as Shades of Faith, Shades of Ritual, Rooted in the Body Seeking the Soul, and will soon be publishing Bringing Race to the Table. In the wake of recent events where unarmed black people such as Eric Garner, Michael Brown, and Tamir Rice are murdered by White police officers, with no justice brought to the offenders, we reaffirm our social justice mission to continue to bring to light the issues that need to be discussed in the Pagan community and in the mainstream communities. We stand with our author Crystal Blanton, in support of her and her mission. We align ourselves with the statement Black Lives Matter and reaffirm our stance to support social justice causes that create equity for all, especially for marginalized and oppressed groups of people. We see you and we value you.
