  • Voodoo Fire in Haiti

    Voodoo Fire in Haiti By, Richard A. Loederer. Translated from German by Desmond Ivo Vesey, published in 1935. A nonfiction firsthand account of Voodoo, as seen by Loederer, armed with only his paint brush and machete in the dark jungles of Haiti. A stunning production from the 30s, with incredible woodcuts in an art deco style. An examination of supernatural beliefs by an artist who held a series of art exhibitions using these same, fine illustrations. “This is the most atmospheric book about Haiti, its history, its legends, its superstitions and its native rites and customs ever written.” Voodoo is a religious tradition originating in West Africa, which became prominent in the New World due to the importation of African slaves. West African Vodun is the original form of the religion; Haitian Vodou and Louisiana Voodoo are its descendants in the New World.

    “Don’t you realize, monsieur, that many of the workers on the sugar fiends are mere soulless carcasses, brought back to life by magic and now slaving for their master? Several times I have seen the black spirits flying overhead. I swear it; I saw this with my own eyes. No one can escape from the terrible powers of evil.” 

     

     

    “In Port-au-Prince, in Jeremie, in the depths of the jungle, everywhere stood the dread symbol of Voodoo. The first time I saw it was by the Massacre River. A solitary hut stood in a little clearing on the bank and in from the the hut was a pole stuck in the ground with a bleached horse skull on the top. This grisly ornament serves, according to Haitian belief, to ward of the Duppies, evil spirits of the dead.” 

    “..if you five long enough on this island even you wont’ be able to escape the spirits which inhabit it. They will pursue you until they catch your soul and Possess your body”

  • Syzygy

    EXPANDED SECOND EDITION

    Reflections on the Monastery of the Seven Rays

    By Tau Palamas 

    The two worlds of Voudon and Gnosis merged together within the unique expression of a religious community called the Monastery of the Seven Rays. Having a history that is as colorful and mysterious as the variety of individuals involved in this esoteric movement of the spirit, the Monastery stands apart from traditional expressions of monasticism in the East and in the West by existing on a physical plane, but more especially by also being a psycho-spiritual locale, accessible to all who knock upon her celestial doors. For each Postulant of this Monastery there is a particular work to do, a particular Gnostic space to dwell within, and a particular sacred injunction to fulfill for the betterment of the globe. SYZYGY by Tau Palamas is one such legacy. It is simply the reflections of one student of this delightful and challenging superstructure of mind.

    –The Monastery of the Seven Rays.

    “This true Labor of Love offers one of the best introductions to our School and Work that we’ve read. From the curious seeker to the seasoned Pilgrim on the Path, there is guidance and illumination in this volume which will speak time and again to the deepest levels of spiritual longing…With gratitude to Tau Palamas, we whole heartedly recommend SYZYGY as one of the best books of the year!”

    –Kyle Fite, SGM, Ordo Templi Orientis Antiqua & La Couleuvre Noire

    “A wonderful exposition and elaboration of the Monastery of Seven Rays material through the eyes of a true modern-day Christian mystic! I highly recommend it to anyone studying the work of Michael Bertiaux, but the Opus stands alone in that you could create a system of Work from this book alone! For those interested in Martinism and Ecclesiastical Gnosticism this book is also of great value, and certainly compliments the work of L’Ordre Martinesiste de Chenu (it is on the reading list)!  Highly recommended!”

    –Kevin Davis, Sov. Insp. V°, Ordre Martinesiste de Chenu

  • Sabbatica II – Softcover

    Sabbatica Volume II “The Seas of Blood and the Transmigration of the Black Flame” emerges as an exposition of spectral seals, opening the astral paths of sorcery and magick. A convocation of a series of massive volumes, conjoined in arcane gnosis in order to evoke the primal path, that lead us to sacred knowledge pouring forth from secret vessels of Sabbatic mysteries. This grimoire is an in-depth voyage to the waters of death and black alchemy, moving to the most hidden anthropological and psychological depths. Edgar Kerval is a draconian magician and occultist that has been working in diverse manifestations for many years. His work focuses on deconstructing different magickal vortices through deep states of consciousness and gnosis. Which are reflected in his ritual projects including EMME YA, in which he positions atavism and chthonic energies to create vast soundscapes and ritual vaporous atmospheres. Edgar Kerval’s other projects include THE RED PATH, THE RED ANGLE, NOX 210, ARCHAIC: SONS OV SIRIUS, and LUX ASTRALIS, TOTEM. He has also collaborated with other esoteric author and musicians on various projects, utilizing diverse media. As an author, Edgar Kerval has published three books; via Siniestra (under the mask of the red gods) Ast Ma Ion-Eos Tar Nixet (A practical grimoire of Qliphotic sorcery) and Vxit Urut Nag (The grimoire of the black serpent). His work also appears in publications such as Qliphoth Journal Noxaz and Sabbatica.
