This comprehensive treasury of Jewish teachings, drawn from sources spanning Jewish scripture, the Talmud, the Midrash, the Kabbalah, and other esoteric branches of Judaism, is exhaustively researched yet easy to use. It includes over one thousand alphabetical entries, from Aaron to Zohar Chadesh, with extensive cross-references to related topics and new illustrations throughout. Drawn from the well of a great spiritual tradition, the secret wisdom within these pages will enlighten and empower you. Praise: “An erudite and lively compendium of Jewish magical beliefs, practices, texts, and individuals . . . This superb, comprehensive encyclopedia belongs in every serious library.”—Richard M. Golden, Director of the Jewish Studies Program, University of North Texas, and editor of The Encyclopedia of Witchcraft: The Western Tradition “Rabbi Dennis has performed a tremendously important service for both the scholar and the novice in composing a work of concise information about aspects of Judaism unbeknownst to most, and intriguing to all.”—Rabbi Gershon Winkler, author of Magic of the Ordinary: Recovering the Shamanic in Judaism

How does our fascination with technology intersect with the religious imagination? In TechGnosis—a cult classic now updated and reissued with a new afterword—Erik Davis argues that while the realms of the digital and the spiritual may seem worlds apart, esoteric and religious impulses have in fact always permeated (and sometimes inspired) technological communication. Davis uncovers startling connections between such seemingly disparate topics as electricity and alchemy; online roleplaying games and religious and occult practices; virtual reality and gnostic mythology; programming languages and Kabbalah. The final chapters address the apocalyptic dreams that haunt technology, providing vital historical context as well as new ways to think about a future defined by the mutant intermingling of mind and machine, nightmare and fantasy.

Myth, Magic, & Metaphor, attempts to put together a fairly simple creative writing classroom scenario. The idea is to awaken the aesthetic sense, the creative muse who lurks within us all. The method is multisensory, interdisciplinary, and holistic. Philosophy, art, music, and linguistics are some of the disciplines used. The goal is to have the reader recognize and enjoy the process. It asks for the students of writing to experience the sense of wonder they knew as children, to use their imagination, to feel and absorb the world around them, to listen, not just to hear, to see, not just to look, in sum, to become intoxicated with life. The tool is the heart: the medium is words. “They say that the human mind, once stretched to a new idea, never returns to its original shape.” (Georgi Lozanov). Our hope is that this little tome will reshape a few minds. “Myth, Magic, & Metaphor” is luminous with oracular wisdom about the nature and sources of creativity. From first page to last, this book will inspire you to be inspired.” Richard Lederer, author of The Miracle of Language, Crazy English, The Play of Words, and many other “Linguistic Treasures”

Papua New Guinea’s mighty Sepik River has been home to many communities for over a thousand years and yet how much do we, as outsiders, really know and understand the culture and visual arts of this region? Myth + Magic: Art of the Sepik River, Papua New Guinea provides a rare opportunity to encounter masterpieces from the Sepik, works of art that speak of a time and place where spirits and ancestors were integral to daily life. These works come from the rich collections of the National Gallery of Australia, other Australian museums and art galleries, and the Papua New Guinea National Museum and Art Gallery. This publication celebrates the unique cultures of a country that is now celebrating its fortieth anniversary of independence. The Sepik River is home to an array of art-producing communities distinguished for their visual arts, including sculptures of supernatural beings, masks and other fascinating objects that beguile and bewilder all who encounter them. For its inhabitants the Sepik River is a place of both serenity and harshness: a rich environment that has supported its people for generations but also delivers challenges through floods, clouds of mosquitoes and crocodiles. In pre-Christian times Sepik communities were faced with the constant threat of danger, as ambushes for the purpose of headhunting were a customary practice, and the limitations on engaging on any level with outsiders, beyond trade with trusted inter-community partners, were considerable. Given the need to survive in what is at times a confronting environment, one can imagine how the animist-like pantheons of spirits, both benevolent and malign, were translated into physical works of art by master-carver artists. Myth + Magic presents the greatest examples of Sepik River art held in the southern hemisphere. This publication provides the best possible platform to acknowledge what these objects truly are—markers of culture, beyond their ethnographical worthiness, and powerful works of world art.
