Book Description

5 Jan 2007
A new edition of the highly acclaimed manual of freestyle shamanism, suitable for all those inspired by such figures as Austin Spare and Aleister Crowley, and who feel the imperative to develop their own unique magical way. Visual Magick aims to build vision, imagination, and creative magick. It shows how magicians, witches, artists and therapists can improve visionary abilities, enhance imagination, activate the inner senses, and discover new modes of trance awareness. The emphasis is on direct experience and the reader is asked to think, act, do, and enjoy as s/he wills. 'One of the best books on magick I have read in a long while.' Phil Hine in Pagan News 'A practical modern grimoire.' The Cauldron

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple Magick for a Technocratic Age 7 Feb 2001
Format:Paperback
I was first introduced to Jan Fries' work by a friend. The book in question was "Helrunar", and I was instantly struck by Fries' ability to write so engagingly on a topic that so many others have sapped all the vitality out of.
That was over two years ago. I have changed a lot in that time and picked up "Visual Magick" more from a sense of vague nostalgia than pure interest. Might I say how very glad I am that I did!
Fries is one of a rare breed of writers who writes literature that can only be termed as "an experience". This is not a manual for the armchair psychonaut! As Mike Ingalls respectfully states in the preface,"Jan's Magick is of the arm-swinging,twirling, climb-the-tree active form of magick". This is most certainly true, Fries being a confirmed believer that experience is the best teacher. In an age of Convenience, this is fresh thinking.
I especially recommend this book to those who feel burnt out, having explored other magical paths and found it all rather lacking. Fries offers more than simply an alternative to boring, pompous ceremony. He embraces the heretical concept of FUN! After all, there are enough sour faces and starched collars in the world as it is. The last thing we want is to make our inner world rigid and monotonous too!
In short, "Visual Magick" is accessible, enjoyable, entertaining and, importantly, PRODUCTIVE! By embracing the tenets of some of the world's oldest spiritual practices, especially Taoism and Shamanism, a new light is brought into the modern age. The focus is very much on active participation on the part of the reader, but the results are deservedly life changing. An excellent book by a remarkable man.
If this book appeals to you, I also recommend "Living Midnight" by Jan Fries, "Liber Null & Psychonaut" by Peter J. Carroll and "The Tao of Pooh" by Benjamin Hoff.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best New Age books on 'Magick' 18 Oct 2009
Format:Paperback
This 'Visual Magick' is the authors own New Age take on shamanism and is not the shamanisms of traditional cultures past or present. There is a mix of different ideas from many different occult and religious traditions whose techniques are used to help the practitioner learn about their true nature and abilities thus creating their own form of 'Visual Magick'. One of the best New Age books though NOT to be confused with actual shamanism.

3.0 out of 5 stars OKAY 2 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As books go it is ok, but nothing brilliant - would have expected a better quality of writing and thought that this lacked deeper insight.
