About Kissing the Limitless
By practicing the Great Work of the ancient alchemists and magicians, readers are guided into self-possession–constant communication with their divine selves– and connection with the Limitless Divine.  Set up as a detailed training course using contemporary techniques that echo those hinted at in antique sources of wisdom, it includes tools for soul balancing, energy cycling, shadow and dream work, tarot and meditation. Readers will learn to open up “life power” and access breath, will, and desire–the key components of effective magic–to, quite literally, reshape the world.

Kissing the Limitless by T. Thorn Coyle

Kissing the Limitless by T. Thorn Coyle

“Kissing the Limitless” is a manual for self-liberation through magic, providing a complete system of spiritual practice to help serious seekers tap the unlimited possibility of their own divine natures. The goal of the book is to help guide you through the stages of personal consciousness that will then enable you to step into inclusive consciousness — a consciousness that encompasses the personal, political, environmental, social, mental, and transpersonal. It is this inclusive consciousness that enables us to reach the Limitless Divine.

Mystic, spiritual director, musician, dancer, activist, and author of Kissing the Limitless, she makes her home near the San Francisco Bay.

Eco-Libris: One tree planted for this book sticker

Eco-Libris, the revolutionary environmental service that lets people balance out the paper in the books they read by planting a tree for every book, is now being offered to bookstore visitors in Minneapolis. At Eye of Horus Metaphysical on Lyndale Avenue South, you can buy a book and balance it out right there on spot.

Jane Hansen, co-owner and Creative Director of Eye of Horus Metaphysical says:

“As soon as we heard of the program we joined. Our customers are thrilled to have the option to offset the environmental impact of the books they buy. It’s so easy! As a store which specializes in Eco-spirituality and conscious living books, music and classes, joining Eco-Libris was a natural extension of our mission.”

Eye of Horus is the 25th bookstore in the Eco-Libris bookstore program. Taking part in the program means that, for only $1, customers at the store can plant a tree for every book they buy there and receive the sticker at the counter!

Eco-Libris is a green business that works with book readers, publishers, writers, bookstores, and others in the book industry to balance out the paper used for books by planting trees. About 20 million trees are cut down annually for virgin paper to be used for the production of books sold in the U.S. alone. Eco-Libris raises awareness to the environmental impacts of using paper for the production of books and provides book lovers with a simple way to do something about it: plant a tree for every book they read.

In just their first few months, Eco-Libris has balanced out more than 24,000 books resulting in more than 31,500 new trees being planted.

“With these new collaborations, and as more bookstores partner with us to help make reading more sustainable, we are hoping to see a big surge in the amount of trees planted,” says Raz Godelnik, Eco-Libris’ CEO.

Eco-Libris strives for a world where reading books doesn’t have adverse effects on the environment. Their mission is to make reading much more sustainable than it is today. They have decided to aim high and to set a challenging goal: to balance out half a million books by the end of 2008.

About Eco-Libris:
Founded in 2007, Eco-Libris is a green business offering book lovers, as well as book stores, publishers and writers the opportunity to balance out the trees cut down for the production of books by planting trees in developing countries. The company has offices in Delaware and California.

Wendy Rule Brings Mythic Music to Minneapolis May 28th

NEWS RELEASE

Wendy Rule - visionary singer/songwriterMinneapolis, Minnesota—April 17, 2008—Eye of Horus presents Australian Wendy Rule, joined by Nordic Roots performer Kari Tauring and special guests Felonious Bosch for an evening of myth-inspired music at the Cedar Cultural Center, 416 Cedar Ave. S., on Wednesday, May 28, 2008 beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Ticket price is $18 in advance and $22 at the door. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Tickets for the event can be purchased through Ticketweb.com, Cedar outlets, the Cedar Ticketline at (612) 338-2674 ext 2 and the show’s sponsor, Eye of Horus Metaphysical store by phone at (888) 872-1292 or online at Eyeofhorus.biz.

Introduced by Radio Paganistan storyteller Steven Posch, the evening will unfold in three acts:

1. Dark and sardonic, Felonious Bosch sets the stage with music for the New Dark Ages. Meld medieval melody with middle-eastern overtones and add the twisted mystic lyrics of Katy Thomasberg to her powerful vocals, and you get a new old vibe.

2. Move on to the ancient Icelandic chants and Huldre stille tunings of Nordic Roots artist Kari Tauring as she returns to the Cedar stage with her huldre project. “Songs of the Völva” echos with the call of her ancestors.

3. Finish with the dark cabaret of Australian Wendy Rule. Her visionary lyrics draw on astrological and goddess mythologies, and her legendary live performance draws on her love of ritual and theater in a combination which transports the audience into an otherworldly realm of power and Magic.

A note from Wendy Rule: “This is sure to be one of the highlight concerts of this US tour. Both Kari and Felonious Bosch are wonderful acts, and the Cedar is a fantastic venue. The night will be full of Magic, Ritual and Music.”

About the Artists:

Wendy Rule has managed to carve a unique path through the musical mainstream, and has emerged with five major albums and a string of side projects to her name. With the release of her fifth full length album, The Wolf Sky, Rule has firmly established herself as one of Australia’s most uniquely gifted and prolific artists. Her music is a passionate union of her incredible voice – moving from soaring heights to intimate whispers – and her beautifully dark and visionary lyrics referencing astrological and goddess mythologies.

“Wendy Rule creates dark, sensual sonic theatre… compelling stuff.” – Rolling Stone Magazine, Australia

“Every so often Melbourne throws up a singular talent, someone previously hidden amongst the well-established musical tribes, someone possessed of a unique vision. Wendy Rule, the vocalist, songwriter and visionary, is such an artist.” – Beat Magazine, Melbourne

“If twilight has a voice, then that voice is Wendy Rule.” – New Witch Magazine, USA

Kari Tauring as The VolvaKari Tauring returns to the Cedar stage to present her huldre project, “ Songs of the Völva.” From Rune chants to Latvian lullabies, original tunes set to ancient Icelandic texts, and new twists on Norwegian folk standards Tauring’s work spans time and space. Her performance of Nordic vocal techniques, kulning, kveding, huldre loll and lokk accompanied by Stav (stick rhythm) and guitar resonate through the tap root of Norse heritage.

When asked, Kari explains the huldre:
“Huldre are a fairy folk of Norway and Iceland. Huldre stille is a tuning based on the langeleik (primarily a women’s instrument) which is tuned in A and D with a C or G added. I use ancient Danish texts, Icelandic chants, Rune songs and American story telling in the same tunes! It’s so much fun. It stretches us as musicians as well as giving us a deeper spiritual connection to our ancient past.”

Dark and sardonic, Felonious Bosch begins the evening with music for the New Dark Ages. The powerful vocal style of singer Katy Thomasberg floats and soars over the rhythms of bassist Drew Miller and percussionist Renée Bracchi. Shaken up and blended with Nemo’s dynamic riffing on bouzoukis, cittern and Felonious Boschguitar, David Stenshoel’s fiddle and Steve Clarke’s reeds, you get music that sparkles, with a centuries-old aftertaste.

“…Katy Thomasberg reinvents herself as a quasi-mystic probably headed for hell as she genre splices ancient sounding melodies from many cultures with dark lyrics sung by her soaring voice. A delightfully schizoid recording that shakes you up with its light-seeming sound floating through the heart of darkness.”
– Midwest Record Recap

“…intriguing, appealing… the Bosch mixes and matches Middle Eastern and Celtic folk music with (Katy) Thomasberg’s siren songs to create often mesmerizing tracks… …there’s a lighter-than-air quality to these songs, even as they often revolve around drones. Unusual and unusually attractive, Felonious Bosch gives folk tradition a 3.0 upgrade.”
– Michael Toland, High Bias

Sponsored by Eye of Horus Metaphysical:
Since it’s inception almost 5 years ago, ‘the Eye’ has been a resource for Myth, Ritual and Centered Living. With a Mythic Art Gallery, Garden Labyrinth, Classes, Drum Jams and Bardic Circles, the Eye has supported the exploration of Spirit and Myth. With this concert, this same vision remains, only the venue has changed. According to owner Thraicie Hawkner, “The truth is, we simply couldn’t resist the opportunity to see Wendy Rule live. We love her music and jumped at the chance to bring her to town.”
Eye of Horus will close early May 28th so the entire staff can go to the concert.
