Inhaltsangabe: Until recently, few scholars were even aware that a Slavic Magickal tradition still existed. Kenneth Johnson's book presents his true-life experiences in Russia with the living practitioners of this ancient magickal discipline. It also serves as a course in authentic shamanic practices. Readers can learn about the mythology and lore of the Slavic peoples, and there is material on festivals, cosmology, the gods, Otherworld spirits, and ancestor beliefs.
Rezension: Kenneth Johnson's nearly seamless integration of history with story, and his ability to shift effortlessly from concise factual reporting to Byzantine descriptions of his adventures in and around Saint Petersburg make Slavic Sorcery read like a novel. Explore the history and folklore of Eastern Europe and European Russia as Johnson delves into the superstitions and wives' tales that helped earth-magic beliefs, such as dowsing, survive the religious and political turmoil of the region. At the same time, add secrets of the Slavic magical tradition to your own repertoire through Johnson's experiences with Slavic spells, sacred places of power, tree magic, and spirits of the otherworld. You'll also find a delightful recounting of Johnson's learning experiences under the tutelage of Vladimir Antonov, a colorful and well-known practitioner of this ancient earth magic.
