With simple language and rich tones of personal experience, Mr. Penczak explains sources of energy, symbols and details of a magical life surrounded by concrete. He teaches us how to use limited space more efficiently for temples, altars and magical storage. Drawing on details from urban life, we're shown how the simple uses of tools, herbs, stones and graffiti sigils can bring us closer to a co-relationship with our environment. He introduces the reader to "Neon Devas and Electric Gods", beginning a new and refreshing open dialogue for those pagans who must or by choice, reside in cities.
Covering such subjects as "metropolitan spirits, urban magic, tools, language of the street, techno temples" and much more, this book delves deep into the heart of the city to unearth the powers that lurk there, waiting to be summoned. Included in the volume are twenty-three good illustrations and twenty-seven practical and simple exercises to enhance your magic and spirituality, while making your home within the steel and glass of an urban environment.
If you reside in a city, this book is a must-have. It will help alleviate the notion that magic can only be effective in a natural setting. Feel "at-one-ness" with the beat of the urban heart. Connect with your surroundings. Use the energy around you to strengthen and enhance magic. Practice urban magic and embrace the pulse of city-life.
Spirit is everywhere, we only have to learn to discern its presence and make the connection. Embrace the metropolition spirits and the new urban temples where they dwell. Penczak is wonderfully adept at pointing the way, as well as providing the tools of the trade to make sure we're successful in this magical journey of discovery!
