Anthologies

Postby gmugmble » Sun Oct 06, 2013 9:37 am

In the Preface, you say, "I love anthology volumes. ... Dolores Ashcroft Nowicki's edited compilations ... are among the best." Are you referring to the Anthology of Occult Wisdom series that Datura Press has been quietly releasing? If so, I'm glad to see that someone outside Dolores's immediate sphere enjoys these. I've been trying to push them on my friends without much success.

I don't know about those specifically, though I admire what Dolores has done with other anthologies. Feel free to post links or general information.

I also think Ashcroftt Nowicki is brilliant, she has a series of recorded pathworkings which are amazing, while all the correspondences may not be strictly Thelemic she does an incredible job and one can tell she is working from true insight gained from experience. Listening to her guided pathworkings always completely takes me into the path and are always incredibly vivid. I have also used these as jumping off points, have stayed in the sphere or path and done my own wandering and had my own interactions. The imagery really seems to get into the blood and I can vividly remember each pathworkings experience without having to have actively studied it. It is truly like a memory of a lived experience
