Coventry Magic with Candles, Oils and Herbs

Released October 15th and now in stock, Coventry Magic is a both a fun and profound exploration of what influences shape our lives, and the role we can take in that shaping. In her own witty and wonderfully witchy voice, Smith teaches how to manifest luck, love, money, power, creativity, and abundance into your life. Learn the basics in spellcasting—including clearing a space, choosing corresponding colors and gemstones, elementals, and simple tarot readings—plus everything you wanted to know (or didn’t even know was out there) about wax divination, Ceromancy (divination based on the flame of the candle), potent herbal blends, and much, much more.

“Although this book is a wonderful introduction for the beginner, it is absolutely packed with all kinds of ways to use candle magick. The experienced practitioner will be inspired to add some new techniques to their repetoire as well—I particularly love the section on candle magick and tarot! Great job!” ~Karen Harrison, author of The Herbal Alchemist’s Handbook

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.

“A magically refreshing breath of air! Thorn Coyle is a true modern adept who has mastered her subjects, her craft, and most importantly, herself.” —Lon Milo Duquette

Better Book Browsing

BookNookEatReadSleep

Eat Sleep Read

We’re proud to present our new, expanded, more user-friendly book section.  All of the books scattered out front have been moved into this new book nook, and as we add a couple more book-cases, we’ll even be adding more titles.

We’ve decided 2009 is the year of the book at Eye of Horus, and we are working more directly with publishers than ever before.  We hope to be able to have more author events, as well.

Part of our bookish effort was joining the American Bookseller’s Association and becoming an Indiebound store. In our welcome packet we got this awesome red poster, but it was huge (3 feet wide by 6 feet tall), and we couldn’t figure out what to do with it until we decided to put on one of the doors.  It’s a simple poster, in a classic Helvetica type font, and it reads Eat, Sleep, Read.  At the bottom it adds a reminder to support independent stores like ours.  For the bibliophile, that pretty much says it all.  Red is also a lovely Feng Shui activating color, especially on doors, so we just take that as a bonus value.

In fact, by changing the book section from a single corridor to a room you can walk around, and one with south-facing windows, we’ve completely re-energized the back of the store.  We’re still working on some of the detailing, but we think you’ll have a much more pleasant experience, especially when there are more than a couple of browsers.

Highlight Table

Highlight Table

To enhance the flow, we added a feature table in the middle of the room to highlight themes or hot new titles, and of course, now there are books on all four walls.  Admittedly, with three doors and a window, we don’t have as much book space as we might like, but you are pretty much surrounded by books.  It’s sort of a huggy feeling, at least if you’re a book-lover like me, and think books can give you a metaphorical hug.

In addition to having more room for browsers, we even added a bench under the window for you to sit on as you peruse a title or two, so you don’t have to sit on the floor unless you really, really want to.  We know, we know, we could have added more shelving under the window, but for now, we’ll just focus on making it a more pleasant experience if you need to take a load off, or if you are waiting for a Tarot or Psychic reading.  So here are some more pictures for you to get a preview, but we invite you to come on in, and do tell us what you think about it!
