Druidism: Ancient & Modern (a.k.a. Druidism

and poets of the Indo-European peoples. Isaac covers the history,
prehistory and social structure of the Indo-European clergy,
the duties of their clergy, and the genocide campaigns against
the ancient Druids. He also discusses Druidic revivals during
the last few centuries, and gives us a humorous look at the origins
Rituals That Work
Sincerity is no substitute for competence
in any craft, and the nuts-and-bolts side of Magic is no exception.
Isaac leads a discussion of methods for constructing effective
ritual based on over 35 years of research and personal experience
in different forms of Magic.
How Does Magic Work?
Most people think of Magic as a way of accomplishing
your goals through supernatural
means, a way that defies the laws of science.
As our understanding increases, these laws will include Magical
phenomena. Isaac emphasizes the nature and laws of Magic, the
use of altered states of consciousness, and the difference between
ones target and ones goal in working Magic.
Sexual Magic & Magical Sex
With Deborah Lipp. A discussion of traditional
and modern techniques for using sexual power and ecstacy for
Magical goals, with material from Tantra, Thelemic Sex Magic,
and other world systems. Includes ways to use Magical training
and techniques to enhance personal sexual experience.
Making Fun of Religion
With Deborah Lipp. Isaac and Deborah share
decades of divine comedy to showcase the ways play and creativity
have influenced the Neo-Pagan Movement, including the
cults of the
Java-Crucians (Hail Caffeina), the Flamingo Tradition, Reformed
Druidism, Squat (Goddess of Parking Spaces), Wombat Wicca, and
the First Orbical Church of Rock & Roll. Plus: an exercise
in the creation of your OWN humor-based religious cult for fun
and prophet, complete with deities, sacraments, historical and
scientific correlations, tools, totems, taboos and rituals.

Videotapes Recommended by Isaac Bonewits
Druidism for a New Age Isaac Bonewits
Isaac is the retired Archdruid of Ár
nDraíocht Féin (ADF), the largest new age Druidic
group in the world. The ADF motto Why not excellence?
sets it apart from much of the Pagan community. In a light-hearted
way he discusses his beliefs and describes how, no matter what
your present religious path, you can become part of the new Druidic
movement in the United States. If you have wondered why some
Druids worship a saguaro cactus and others a grove of oak trees,
here is your answer. If you want to become part of a float in
a Saint Patrick's Day parade, that too is answered in this wide-ranging
interview. 45 minutes.
Witchcraft Mythistory Professor
Professor Clark is one of the foremost
authorities on the true nature of the Burning Times. In this
controversial tape, he sets to rest many of the more outrageous
claims that modern Witches have made about this terrible time
in human history. How many were really burned? hanged? tortured?
Were they Witches? All these questions are considered. With audience
participation, Professor Clark explores the possibility of constructing
a Witchcraft mythos that is acceptable to scholars, historians
and the Witchcraft community. Perpetuating a false history of
Witchcraft and Wicca, continues to engender the popular belief
that Witches are flakes. Learn the truth about your religious
history before you put your foot in your mouth in front of yet
another scholar. 62 minutes.
The Pagan Wiccan Path Stewart
and Janet Ferrar with Gavin Bone
This is a very informal interview with
Stewart and Janet Farrar and Gavin Bone. They have collaborated
on some twenty books. They have recently collaborated with Gavin
Bone to write their latest, The Pagan Path. This tape
describes not only their thinking at this time, but also how
they respectively got involved in the Craft and then in Paganism.
It offers glimpses into the characters of such people as Gerald
Gardner, Alex Sanders, and the Lindhurst Coven. The delightful
personalities introduced in this relaxed interview show you that
you should make your own path and that philosophical differences
do not need to lead to personal animosities. 66 minutes.
Sharing Water Oberon and Morning
This relaxed interview with Oberon and
Morning Glory tell how they first came into Paganism, and reveal
its great rewards: rewards both to themselves and for future
generations. Oberon, a dedicated artist and propounder of the
Gaea Thesis, discusses that thesis which has made a dramatic
change in the lives of so many people, Pagan and Christian alike.
The Zell-Ravenhearts also talk of Pagan family values
values that have led to Pagan children having lower rates of
unwanted pregnancies and delinquency than any other religious
group. Remember too, about Paganism: If you dont like a
given flavor, there is always another one. 85 minutes.
