Celtic Plant Magic
A Workbook for Alchemical Sex Rituals
Paperback ISBN: 0892819243
The first working guide to the creation and application of plant-based compounds for ritual, magical, and healing purposes based on the Druidic tradition. â€¢ Provides step-by-step instructions for processing and transforming 70 plant energies and essences into working magical compounds. â€¢ Demonstrates the application of these compounds in a sex magic ritual. â€¢ Written by a practicing Druid with more than 40 years in the tradition. The ancient rites and lore of the Druids have always utilized a gentle alchemy to convert plant essences into potent compounds for working magical rituals. Through the respectful seduction of a plant's virtue, Druid alchemists are able to release and collect the latent energy, physical attributes, and magical capacities of that plant. The Druid then applies a series of processes to the acquired essence in order to maximize its power prior to its application in magical ritual. In this first-ever working guide to the principles, processes, and practical application of druidic plant magic, Jon G. Hughes shares the combined wisdom of his ancestral lineage. Celtic Plant Magic includes basic alchemical theory, instructions for creating all necessary tools, descriptions of magical compounds and their uses, and how to prepare oneself for working with plant essences. The healing and magical properties of more than 70 plants and trees are provided. The author then applies this information to a Celtic sex ritual, demonstrating how these compounds are used in specific magic and ritual practices. Celtic Plant Magic is a valuable manual for anyone wishing to harness the magical potential of plant energy.

â€¢ Reveals how the sexual practices of the White Tigress can preserve and restore a woman's physical youthfulness and mental energy. â€¢ The first modern guide to White Tigress techniques, the only sexual teachings exclusively for women. â€¢ Reveals for the first time in English the hidden teachings of immortaless Hsi Wang Mu, a White Tigress from 3,000 years ago. â€¢ Provides Western medical correlations to substantiate White Tigress practices. White Tigress women undertake disciplined sexual and spiritual practices to maintain their beauty and youthfulness, realize their full feminine potential, and achieve immortality. Revealed here for the first time in English are the secrets of the White Tigress that have all but disappeared from the world. Under the guidance of Madame Lin, the matriarch of a distinguished White Tigress lineage still in existence in Taiwan, Hsi Lai was given the privilege to study these practices and record them from a modern perspective so they will be forever preserved.Â The vast majority of Taoist texts on alchemy, meditation, and sexuality are directed at male practitioners. The Sexual Teachings of the White Tigress presents traditions that focus on women, traditions that stem from a long line of courtesans and female Taoists. Translations of the ancient teachings from a rare White Tigress manual dating back 3,000 years explain the sexual and spiritual refinement of ching (sexual energy), chi (vital energy), and shen (consciousness)--the Three Treasures of Taoism--the secret to unlocking eternal youthfulness and immortality.
