Grimoire Sympathia The Workshop of the Infinite: Healing Without Medicine Using the Spiritual Essence of Plants, Minerals and Precious Stones by Char




This work is quite remarkable, being a grimoire of the spirits of plants, minerals and precious stones. The spirit for each has a name, a sigil and an invocation and these are used for healing purposes. In some instances simple rituals derived from folklore are given. The spirit attributions were derived by means of clairvoyant investigation, though the author is known to be familiar with Culpeper. However, this is not herbalism, the plants are not taken or used to prepare medicine, rather the magician attunes to their spirit to invoke sympathetic magic.

Very few original grimoires were produced throughout the 20th Century and despite its gentle tone, this book is undoubtedly a grimoire — a grimoire which has been constantly overlooked.
