Runa

The Wisdom of the Runes

A.D. Mercer

‘Runa – Wisdom of the Runes’ presents what is, without doubt, the most misunderstood, probably the most cynically abused set of runes in the history of runology. The Armanen runes have been ignored by scholars, abused by right wing extremists, and largely forgotten by students of the occult. Nevertheless, the Armanen runes are in many ways the quintessential esoteric rune row. Originally conceived of by the nineteenth-century German mystic Guido von List, the Armanen runes offer us the most esoterically charged futharks ever encountered.

As well as exploring their true history, Runa discusses the deeper significance of the Armanen runes with the intention of returning the runes to their rightful place at the zenith of true runic magic as well as their true meaning as symbols of transformation granting access into the deeper unconscious and what may lie beyond.

Runa examines each rune in detail, before embarking on a detailed exploration of the relationship between the Armanen Runes and Yggdrasil……..

A Ring Around The Moon

Witch Rites Revisited

Nigel G. Pearson

An initiate of both Traditional and Modern Witchcraft, the author gives here the actual rites and rituals of a working Coven, from an insider’s point of view. These rites were developed by the Coven themselves over a period of nearly a quarter of a century and give a fascinating insight into the actual workings of an initiate-only Coven. As the Coven itself has ceased practice and is no longer in existence, and a significant period of time has elapsed, the secrecy surrounding these rites may now be lifted and they are here offered as working examples, which other Covens may benefit from.

As well as giving a brief, historical overview of the origins of the Coven and the parent group it derived from – which in itself is fascinating reading –  the rites detailed cover devotional, magical and festive rituals, rites for the Greater and Lesser Sabbats, rites for the God and Goddess, rites of passage and workings for solitary practice. Wherever possible, background information is given, explaining the origins and inspirations for these rites and how and why they came to be written.

Covid-19 update

Amidst these strange and difficult times, we wish to assure our customers that Troy Books remains fully operational and continues to fulfil orders. We have received updates from our suppliers ensuring us that they are not currently having any issues. In general delivery times with UK Royal Mail do not seem to have been too badly affected but some parcels to overseas locations are taking a little longer so please allow a little longer for delivery.

 

As the occultist seeks to make progress despite adversity and find something of value in every difficult situation, we are reminded that esoteric endeavour often makes great use of periods of contemplative retreat and withdrawal from society, making extra space for focused daily meditation, prayer, the study of texts and the practice of ritual, magic and acts of creativity. As we find ourselves forced into retreat and isolation and many of us strive to make the best of a difficult situation, all titles from Troy Books continue to be available to those who might find them of use during this period and we offer our deepest thanks to our wonderful readership for their continued support.
