The Blood Of The Earth : An Essay On Magic and Peak Oil

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Industrial culture is in collapse. There is no infinite growth on a finite planet and oil, our most critical resource, has passed peak. We have entered a period of radical flux, and magic must respond to the world in which it operates, or it is nothing but empty escapism. The Blood of the Earth: An Essay on Magic & Peak Oil is a challenging and radical book. It fuses hard physical science with an adept’s understanding of magic. John Michael Greer presents a tour de force of occult philosophy covering Neoplatonism, Theurgy, Ritual magic, and thinkers as diverse as Aristotle, Giordano Bruno, Joséphin Péladan and Rudolph Steiner. He presents the highly practical mental training methods of magic for countering the tyranny of dualistic thinking. Clearly written and accessible, The Blood of the Earth is part of the fusion of deep ecology and deep paganism we continue to champion, and is equally relevant to heathen, druid, magician and witch.

Paperback book in very good condition and appears unread with no signs of wear.
