Summary: Opening with a succinct review of the meaning and evolution of witchcraft in Europe and Spain, Simmons establishes the existence of many similar beliefs among native inhabitants of the New World. Moving chronologically to Spanish colonization, the author vividly conveys Spanish reactions to Pueblo life and religion, the fears of witches and other supernatural forces that plagued Spanish colonists. ... Emphasizing the beliefs and nature of witchcraft rather than the actual mechanics (which are secret), he follows Hispanic communities into the late 19th century. ... Readers learn how witchcraft fits into the Pueblo world view and how it compares and contrasts with European and Spanish varieties in such areas as motivation, types, powers, beliefs and means of acquisition. Contents: A dark heritage -- The Devil's domain on the Rio Grande -- Executions and the diabolical kiss --The way of witches -- Pueblo witchcraft -- The tradegy of Nambé -- The Zuñi plague of witches -- Montezuma, a sacred snake, and Pecos Pueblo -- Navajo and Apache witchcraft -- Herbalism and Black Magic -- The lingering legacy of witchcraft.

Book 8: Sullivan, Thelma D., trans. A Scattering of Jades: Stories, Poems, and Prayers of the Aztecs. Edited by T.J. Knab. New York: Simon & Schuster, 1994Add to your cart.
Summary: Offers an extraordinary glimpse into the Aztec civilization -- a mysterious culture that revered its poets, worshiped its kings and ritualized human sacrifice. The Aztec empire reached its height between the twelfth and sixteenth centuries, culminating in the reign of Motecuzoma. Aztec cities surpassed those of Europe in size and grandeur, and their art and aesthetics were the most sophisticated of all nature American cultures. Among the ancient Aztecs, a clever turn of phrase was considered a precious stone -- a 'scattering of jades" was an Aztec metaphor for elegant speech.

Summary: From early youth, Dr. Sandra Gibson had been plagued by psychic experiences that both terrified and intrigued her. In 1976, at the age of 29, convinced that she was either loosing her mind or was possessed by an evil spirit, Dr. Gibson understook an unusual form of therapy with the hypno-therapist and parapsychologist in a final desparte attempt to save her sanity. The therapy continued for eighteen months. During this period, Dr. Gibson, with the guidance and assistance of her therapist and her psychologist-husband, learned to accept the reality of her psychic powers and to channel those powers for positive ends. This book is her journal of that experience, and is drawn in part from recorded tapes of her therapy sessions and trances. Reading it is a psycic experience in itself. It may very well change your life. Subjects: Parapsychology. Genre/Form: Diaries
