"Angels and Other Mysteries of the Tree of Life" - M. Aivanhov

"The Sacred Magic of Angels" - David Goddard - This book presents an overview of the different angelic entities, some history, a brief description of there powers and fairly easy to follow rituals you can perform. Obviously there maybe some points not everyone agrees on but I found the book very informative****

"A Dictionary of Angels" - Gustav Davidson - This definitive list of angels collected from all the faiths has to be the largest list I've ever seen, very useful, however can be a little confusing as different names are quoted by different faiths etc..

 

"The Physics of angels" - A theologian & biologist explore angels using classics , bible, physics, cosmology , worth a read if your an angel fan.


Clairvoyants

"Story of the Soul" - Edgar Cayce

"The Ascended Masters book of ritual and Prayer" - Edwin Courtenay - Unfortunately this book isn't available published in English which is a shame, perhaps if people try and order it the interest will be passed to the publishers and we may see it soon!

"Dictionary of Symbols" - J.C. Cirlot brilliant book of symbols, very detailed and comprehensive a must have for people interested in or performing readings.

"Signposts" - Denise Lynn One of the better dream/symbol books available if you want a quick brief interpretation, it's easy to read and has a comprehensive introduction. For a more detailed interpretation or for Tarot/cards/readings use with "Dictionary of Symbols".

Warriors Path

Dan Millman

"Way of the Peaceful Warrior" - Dan Millman A book written about a college guy who 'bumps' into a 'wise man' who introduces him into a way of living. The book is very easy to read and keeps you turning the pages. A very enthralling introduction into a shamanic lifestyle for the modern day.

"By the River Piedra, I Sat Down and Wept"

"Power of The Witch" - Laurie Cabot A really good read exploring the history of Wicca, with some modern day practice as well, a good overview although I'd suggest obtaining some more information regarding the practise of if you want to explore Wicca more fully.

Carlos Castaneda

What can I say about Carlos briefly and do justice to these books? All I can say is that I've read all of them and found them absolutely fascinating and intriguing. When I was introduced to them the term 'Shaman' was unknown to me, but Carlos introduces a whole way of life and thinking without even mentioning the term. I can recommend that if your thinking of embarking on these books read 'The Active Side of Infinity' first as it's like and introduction or a summary to wet your appetite..

"The teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge" This book is really in two parts the second being an exercise or notes on the first - not really somthing I looked at.

"Journey to Ixtlan",

"The Wheel of Time" This is an interesting book which is compilation of the 'most intersting' statements / quotes from the book.

"Castaneda for Beginners" - At last an easy to understand explanation of Carlos's life presented in a cartoon form.

 

"Awakening the Buddha Within" - Lama Surya Das An interesting introduction into buddhism and more, a book for everyone to read.

"The Witch's Dream" -Florinda Donner-Grau Written by a female carlos 'team member'

"Crystal Vision : Shamanic Tools for Change & Awakening" This is an interesting book which covers the construction and use of various shamanic tools, definately worth investigating, tools created by yourself for your use are more personal.

"American Indian Prophecies" - Kurt Kaltreider

"The Sacred Ways of a Lakota" Wallace black elk an amazing life story, a rare insight into a 'real' native american shamens life.

"Return of the Bird Tribes"- Ken Carey - native american spirituality - Definately a book to read if you have an interest in the subject a must read!
