by David Beth
Foreword by Michael Staley
Finally, a clear exposition of the Voudon Gnostic system of Michael Bertiaux and the work of La Couleuvre Noire.
The thriving multiverse of artistic imagination which this current represents has been explored by Kenneth Grant, but this is the first text giving the inside experience of an initiand.
A fascinating and challenging glimpse into the Voudon system, it is both a gateway for students and an inspiration for those looking for a more creative occultism.
David Beth draws on his Kosmic Gnosis to create a text which both stands alone, and serves as a perfect introduction to the complexities of that strangest of all modern grimoires, Bertiaux’s Voudon Gnostic Workbook.
Voudon Gnosis is an elegant octavo book of 108pp, with three tipped in colour plates of original artwork.
The standard edition is stealthily bound in black cloth, with black endpapers, and blind embossed with an ophidian design.
This is in keeping with the cultus of La Coulevre Noire.
It is being prepared in a strictly limited and hand-numbered edition of five hundred and fifty-five copies.
A copy can be yours for twenty-five English pounds plus postage.
The deluxe edition of fifty five copies of Voudon Gnosis are quarter bound in black snake skin and finished in a stygian black paper which is debossed with an ophidian design. The endpapers are hand marbled and swirled. The foredge stained black. All copies of the deluxe are personally signed and sigilised by David Beth. SOLD OUT
Expanding upon the groundwork of his essay in Scarlet Imprint’s Howlings, David Beth guides us through this eclectic, syncretic and highly personal system of sorcery which nevertheless has come from a genuine Haitian lineage.
Those looking for the wilder atavistic energies of sex magick, as we find embodied in the art of Austin Osman Spare, will find much of interest in this book. Voudon Gnosis outlines a more complex and highly developed system of sex magick than is found in the secret grade papers of the Western magickal tradition.
This slim volume is densely packed with information and suggestions which will augment your practice, regardless of your tradition.
Voudon Gnosis covers:
Las Prise des Yeaux
Spider Sorcery and Time Travelling
Elemental Sex Magick
The Grimoire Ghuedhe
With appendices on:
Nganga and the Fetish
A-Mor, an initiated analysis of Love
