A second helping of Ian Corrigan

Ian Corrigan is an American Neopagan writer, teacher, musician and ritualist whose work has influenced both the Wiccan and Neo-druidic branches of the Pagan movement. His work of books can be found HERE and his music can be found HERE: One of his amazing books: The Grimoire of the Court of Brigid is a suite of rituals that allow the magician to gain the aid of one of the most beloved of the Celtic deities – Brigid the High One. Through her blessing the magician calls various spirits. The spirits are convoked in friendship and alliance with no element of coercion or threat. The Court of Brigid grimoire is focused firmly on practical work,from the creation of the proper sacrifice ground to the Three Rites by which the alliances are made, to spells and boon-rites for specific goals. The names, powers and sigils of twenty-eight spirits are presented. The work of the Court of Brigid is unique in current occult publishing – a system of formal evocation based firmly in a polytheistic (not to mention Celtic) context. Let the Fire of Offering be lit, and the spirits come to our call! He can also be seen in Dark of Moon with our former and future guest (Nov. 2nd), Taliesin Govannon. We are excited to have Mr. Corrigan back!
