The Three Rays of Witchcraft: Power, Love and Wisdom in the Garden of the Gods |
Author: Christopher Penczak [a Witchvox Sponsor]
Publisher: Copper Cauldron Publishing
Category: Witchcraft/Magick Level: Intermediate
Inspired by a Vision of Awen depicting a spear, a flowering branch and a horned serpent emanating from three drops of wisdom and surrounded by three worlds, Christopher Penczak received a teaching to reconcile many of the disparate parts of modern Witchcraft into a cohesive body of magickal lore for personal evolution and enlightenment. This teaching was experimented with, expanded upon and are now shared through this work, The Three Rays of Witchcraft: Power, Love and Wisdom in the Garden of the Gods.
Striving to bring all the threads of his personal practice together, including such diverse topics as modern Wicca, Traditional Craft, Druidism, Theosophy, Qabalah, Shamanism and alternative health, the Three Rays provided a powerful framework to artistically synthesize many different techniques and theologies into a greater tapestry. The text outlines a model of the universe based upon the forces of Power, Love and Wisdom. Associated with each is a path, a ray, that we can travel spiritually and evoke energetically. Known as the Straight Line, the Bent Line and the Crooked Line, each offers different opportunities of magick, knowledge and initiation. Each ray is associated with a race of spiritual entities with whom we can partner, including the angels, faeries and creatures of flesh and blood, including the animal powers and ancestors.
Set in a grimoire style of poetic tradition, The Three Rays of Witchcraft includes the following material:
Three Inner Cauldron Workings
Working with the Seven Wanderers
Blessing and Cursing
Triune Divinity of Divine Mind, Heart and Will
Paths of Initiation
Communion with the Hidden Company
The Witch's Tonic
The Three Ray Cord
Vision of the Great Between
The Garden of the Gods Ritual
Christopher Penczak has done it again - The Three Rays of Witchcraft is simply amazing. Whether one is just starting to explore the world of witchcraft or has been around the block a few times doesn't matter - there is something here for everyone. Christopher presents unique and compelling concepts in a wonderfully intelligent manner. But wait there's more - unlike many other pagan authors Christopher does his homework. There is more solid information in the Introduction alone than in the sum total of other books on the subject. The Three Rays of Witchcraft is a must have for any serious occult library. - Jimahl, Alexandrian High Priest and author of A Voice in the Forrest and Talk to Me
"Christopher Penczak has drawn together material from diverse pagan roots and magical sources, blended in the cauldron of his own experience and shaped by the light of his vision and inspiration to present a coherent and vibrant system of practice. The theology of his work is syncretic and inclusive, opening the gates of the three worlds and inviting the reader to walk the paths of power, love and wisdom and find their own way. It is an offering full of angels and fairies, gods and humans, diverse yet connected and each with their own powers and wisdom. This book has strength in its mutability, presenting practical material that is easily adapted, and it will surely be one of the most enchanting flowers in the Garden of the Gods. " - Sorita d'Este, Author of Hekate Liminal Rites, Practical Planetary Magick, The Guises of the Morrigan and founder of Avalonia Books.
"Christopher Penczak is an expert at the art of synthesis, bringingdisparate elements together to form a whole that sheds new light on the Mysteries with unique and relevant perspectives. In The Three Rays he uses that skill to bring ancient and obscure Lore to light in a way that makes it fresh and relevant for the modern practitioner." - Peter Paddon, Author of a Grimoire for Modern Cunning Folk, Host of the Crooked Path podcast and founder of Pendraig Publishing.
