The Green Mysteries – ARCANA VIRIDIUM: An Occult Herbarium

(3 customer reviews)


The Green Mysteries/Arcana Viridia
An Occult Herbarium, or ‘Granary of the Fauns’
by Daniel Schulke, Illustrations by Benjamin Vierling

We have a very limited number of copies available of this long anticipated title. Currently we have both softcover and hardcover. Please note: Both editions are already out of print and the remaining unsold copies from various vendors won’t be available for long. 

From the author of Veneficium comes The Green Mysteries, the monumental product of twenty-five years of experiential research on the spiritual and occult properties of plants. Being a compendium of trees and herbs from countless spiritual traditions, this exhaustive Herbal of esoteric botany examines in detail the folklore, magical uses and spiritual essences of the vegetal kingdom. While presenting the material through both magical and mythopoetic narrative, the stance of the book is also grounded firmly in supportive disciplines such as botany, chemistry, and anthropology, and also includes up-to-date phylogenetic and pharmacological findings. The text focuses especially upon the Doctrine of Plant Essence, and how those powers are utilized in the active practice of magic and sorcery.

Interspersed with encyclopedic plant entries are short narratives addressing such concepts as the Witches’ Flying Ointment, intoxicating incense, the herbal dimension of Alchemy, and the ‘Green Saints’ such as Al-Khidir, the medieval Wildman, and the forest-dwelling Nymphs who nourished the Greek gods. More than a mere collation of previously existing works on plants, much of the material is drawn directly from the author’s private field notes, diaries, and manuals of magical operation from 1991-2016, presented in an engaging narrative style.
