Many people ask me about what books they should be reading for a variety of topics. I have been taught with oral traditions, but have noticed that over the past few years there have been some books on various topics surrounding Shamanism that are of note. I am also including some titles of books that are Shamanism adjacent. So you will find titles of books on everything from Shamanism to Witchcraft to Chakras and Self-Help and so on. I will be adding to this library of suggestions as I go, so do check in from time to time as there may be new recommended reading!

The Gospel of Mary Magdalene
By Jean-Yves Leloup
Perhaps no figure in biblical scholarship has been the subject of more controversy and debate than Mary Magdalene. As the first witness to the Resurrection, Mary was considered by the apostle John to be the founder of Christianity. In most theological studies she has been depicted as a reformed prostitute, the redemmed sinner who exemplifies Christ’s mercy. Today’s reader can ponder her role through references in the four canonical gospels and in the Gnostic gospels of Philip, Thomas, Peter, and Bartholomew rejected by the early Christian church. Mary’s own gospel is among these Gnostic texts but until now has remained unknown to the public at large.
Orthodox theologian Jean-Yves Leloup’s translation of the Gospel of Mary from the Coptic and his profound commentary on this text are presented here for the first time in English. What emerges from this important source text and commentary is a renewal of the sacred feminine in the Western spiritual tradition and a new vision for Christian thought and faith throughout the world.

Inner Traditions of Magic
By William Gray
Samuel Weiser, Inc.
This is a complete book about magic: what it is, and how we can use it to become spiritually conscious and more self-responsible. Drawing upon ancient traditions of magic, William Gray presents a lucid and complete exposition for the modern reader, with rituals that are newly formulated and devoid of archaic phrases.

This takes personal courage. As Gray tells us, “Every soul is its own star. That is magic. Not some cold indifferent isolation of selfish seclusion, but a full realization of the responsibilities placed in every evolving entity to become what we will within us.” Gray has a rare gift for clarifying difficult concepts for the student on the path.
