by John Michael Greer


Have you read it?

The author is fluent in medieval French and Latin and the book is not written for fluffies because it is written in a format of learning and not of happy go lucky story tale.

Was published in 1999 and I bet I have had it nearly that long but just finally opened it to read it last night. Tired from moving, I went to the book case and said "hand me something I can read, to keep me awake to finish the laundry - and that will not upset me" closed my eyes reached out, and here came this book.

I remember a couple of times starting it, and putting it aside because it would take too much concentration - the difference was last night I was too tired to get up and change the book for another LOL

I realized a couple of things - one it is a read more than once, a book to study with - not to read with and two I actually agree with a lot of what he has said so far .. but I am only in about 30 pages. I can see why I would have picked this up though and thought hmm this looks good!

This book is "A Practical Guide to Geomancy" as in the form of divination.

[think Dante in Canto XIX of his Purgatorio .....and the geomancer sees - His greater fortune up the east ascend]



So anyone else here read the book?

Or the author?

He apparently also has written:

Inside a Magical Lodge
Paths of Wisdom
Circles of Power


I have read none of those, and would answer who?!

I don't have Earth Divination Earth Magic (yet!) but I have the other books listed plus a few more. John Michael Greer isn't just an "occult writer". He's also written books on peak oil and a post industrial society. He's not particularly "fluffy" but he isn't stuffy either and he can make complex subjects approachable, at least in the books of his that I've read.

YAY

Yes I am really excited so far, and one of my thoughts last night was hmm - now I am gonna have to buy more of his books LOL


I am confident fluffies would NOT like his work - do to the details and facts and actual history - at least in this book .. and sometimes it feels like a rare find to hold and read a well done book!

My copy arrived today. Turns out the seller lives in Shelbyville, IN. She mailed it the 17th, it went up to Indianapolis and I got it today. Laughing So it's going on my stack of "must read!"
