Cover Text of SHE

The Dark Goddess is fearsome, lustful, unpredictable, dispassionate, cruel, and often deadly. She is Mother Nature without mercy. She is the Ice Maiden with no heart. She is the Bloody Scavenger of the Battlefield and the Huntress of the Moon. She is the Queen of the Dead, and the Avatar of Madness. She reflects our deepest desires, fears, ideals, hopes and expectations.

In this book, you’ll meet goddesses of war, ecstasy and chaos, as well as huntresses of the night and queens of the underworld. You’ll experience meetings with dark mothers, alluring demonesses and grim hags of the winter twilight, who might share with you their ancient wisdom. In vividly evoked timeless lands you’ll encounter powerful sorceresses and wild incarnations of delirium. Hecate, Ereshkigal, Babalon, Akhlys, Melusine, Berchta, Ashina, Black Annis, Lamia… they and all their shadowy sisters wait in their hidden domains to reveal their mysteries.

Storm Constantine and Andrew Collins have selected a wide and fascinating assembly of goddesses for this book, including some who are not so well-known. The pathworkings to meet them, and explore their realms through meditation and intuition, will help you gain insight into these often-misunderstood deities.

This fully-illustrated book includes articles and pathworkings by Deborah Cartwright, Maggie Jennings, Richard Ward and Caroline Wise. Illustrations by Danielle Lainton, Storm Constantine and Ruby. Cover art and design by Danielle Lainton.

The Collector’s edition is augmented by a bonus section – Goddesses of Greater Darkness – featuring Lyssa, Melinoë and Kalma, with extra illustrations to accompany it.

September News

Posted by Storm Constantine

There have been some changes within Immanion Press, since our non-fiction editor, Taylor Ellwood, has moved on from the company. Taylor was with us since almost the beginning, joining the press to manage the non-fiction list, which became the Megalithica Books imprint. We had a lot of fun learning the business and meeting exciting new authors. Taylor was a good person to work with and will be missed, although I understand entirely his reasons for resigning. We wish him all the best in his future endeavours.

For the time being, I’ll be handling all the administration of the non-fiction list.  I’m taking this opportunity to widen its scope. I’m looking for interesting and colourful works on magical thought and practice – whether that’s studies and workbooks on particular deities or systems, or else the creation of new magical systems. I want books that provide experiences for readers and a means to expand their spiritual and magical knowledge.

NEW AND FORTHCOMING NON-FICTION RELEASES

I have great pleasure in announcing a new book I’ve co-written with long-standing friend and colleague Andrew Collins. This is SHE: Journeys of Blood and Shadow, which explores aspects of the dark goddess. This book examines thirty goddesses and mythical females who have assumed the role of goddesses – some of them familiar, as in Ereshkigal, Babalon, Hecate, and Lilith, others lesser known, such as the demons Agrat Bat Malat and Lamia, the death goddess Akhlys and the warrior queen Scáthach. Pathworkings are provided for each goddess, and the book is fully illustrated by Danielle Lainton and me. The beautiful cover art is by Brom and I’ll providing a preview of that in the near future.

The book includes a preface and several pathworkings by Caroline Wise, author of Finding Elen and a former administrator of the Fellowship of Isis. Other contributions come from Deborah Cartwright, Maggie Jennings and Richard Ward.

From the Introduction to the book by Storm Constantine:

“We fear the dark, yet we crave it. We like to be frightened, and fear is often described as delicious. The dark goddess is set apart from the usual pagan trinity of maiden, mother and crone, although she is often seen in one of those forms. Other goddesses personify female traits, such as the benevolent mother, the innocent maiden or the wise hag.

“The dark goddess is unsettlingly different from the common conceptions of acceptable womanhood. She is fearsome, lustful, unpredictable, dispassionate, cruel, often deadly. She is Mother Nature without mercy. She is the Ice Maiden with no heart. She is the bloody scavenger of the battlefields. She is the huntress of the Moon. She is the insanity of obsessive desire. She is the queen of the dead.

“When we work with the energy of these powerful entities we learn more about ourselves and how to control our lives. Within their stories lie truths of the human condition. The shadowy beings you’ll find within these pages can help liberate you from conditioning and fear and bestow upon you the wisdom of the ages.”

I’m particularly excited about the release of this title, as it’s a book I’ve wanted to work on for a long time. SHE: Journeys of Blood and Shadow is due for release in early December and we’ll be holding a launch event for it in Stafford, England, when the contributors will be on hand to talk about their work. More news of that to follow.

We’re also releasing other exciting great titles this autumn.

Heart of the Elder: Good Elders and Their Influence by Lillith ThreeFeathers and Joy Wedmedyk is already available, providing an insightful and absorbing exploration of the role of the Elder in pagan communities.

9781912241040

Includes:

How to identify, meet, and work with Elders.
Originating and maintaining meaningful relationships.
Synchronicities and mysterious benefits of training with them.
Amazing stories of life-changing events.

The authors share astounding real-life experiences and spiritual connections that prove the importance of Elders in Paganism. They offer a practical guide to navigating respectful relationships across spiritual traditions, including insights from more than thirty active Pagans/Neopagans, who are noted teachers, writers, and Elders. No other book deals with the particular challenges of identifying Elders, their roles in our culture, and their impact on those they guide. The information gathered by the authors offers an adventure that will support your own personal path.

On September 28, we’ll be releasing The Elemental Magic Workbook: An Experimental Guide to Understanding and Working with the Classical Elements by Soror Velchanes.

9781912241057

This workbook offers a complete course in elemental magic and provides a solid foundation for future independent work. Throughout history, individuals from diverse backgrounds and preparations have harnessed the elemental forces for spiritual enrichment, life balance, practical magic, and more. Though many cultures developed similar (and also valuable) models, our primary emphasis will be on understanding and working with the elements from classical Greek and Hermetic perspectives, with a chaos magic twist. During your studies, you will:

  • become well-versed in key elemental magic concepts and principles
  • explore the nature of each element, how it impacts your life, and how you may harness it for personal benefit
  • discover the underlying rationale of traditional correspondences, as well as generate your own for personal use
  • perform elemental rites inspired by various magical traditions, as well as successfully develop and perform your own

Previous magical experience is helpful but not required. Everyone is welcome to work with the elements!

Spirit Relations

Spirit Relations by Bill Duvendack

Spirit Relations, Bill Duvendack’s latest book is now available for pre-order. The book will be published April 12th.

Are you looking for a book that teaches you mediumship, rather than merely sharing an individual’s stories of their own work? Are you tired of the dogma that is erroneously attached to this unique skill? Do you want a book with exercises to help you develop your psychic abilities in a more hands-on fashion? Look no further, because all this and more is covered in Spirit Relations. Written by a professional medium, this book not only covers channeling, but also discusses the energetic body of a person, and what to expect when you begin to interact with spirits on a regular basis. Bill Duvendack brings a grounded and practical approach to channeling, sharing details that often get overlooked. You will find exercises to help you assess what psychic skills you might already possess and which may need further development. There is also an easy to follow template for your early mediumship work, and a frequently-asked-question session to assist you during your work.

“I have long wished for a clear and sensible introduction to interacting with spirits. Spirit Relations: Your User-Friendly Guide to the Spirit World, Mediumship and Energy is just that book.”

–Brandy Williams, author of ‘Women’s Voices in Magic’

“Both enjoyable and informative, it is an essential reading for anyone seeking a solid introduction to the nature of spirits, the art of spirit conjuring, and interactions with the astral world.”

-Asenath Mason, artist, author

 

Rituals of the Light Within by Elizabeth Anderton Fox

Rituals of the light Within

Rituals of the Light Within

Rituals of the Light Within by Elizabeth Anderton Fox is now available

Rituals of the Light Within is a collection of writings by Elizabeth Anderton Fox, who has had wide experience in the Rosicrucian, Masonic and Western Mystery Traditions, and is a supervisor for the coursework of the ‘Servants of the Light’ school. The rituals in this book were written between 1982 and 2015, and were primarily designed for use by small and large groups in workshop settings. By publishing them in book form, the author hopes they will prove useful to others, as well as being interesting reading material for anyone drawn to the subject.

The rituals are based upon a wide range of spiritual and esoteric teachings, and contain elements of the Kabbalah as used in Western Mystery teachings. They incorporate aspects of astrology, science, alchemy and astronomy. Above all, they are a reflection of the author’s spiritual journey, based on her personal experiences of the Light which shines within each and every one of us.
