What is Magic?

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
In this book you’ll read about the basic principles of magic-working in the Mundane World as I understand and practice them.
After more than thirty years of study and experimentation with magical techniques I am convinced that magic is available to anyone who decides to take it up.

You’re probably practicing it right at this moment without even being aware of it... More

About Caiseal Mor

In his early twenties Caiseal set off alone to travel the world, following any clue that might lead him to the Sacred Treasure. He was living near Glastonbury, in the U.K. when he embarked on an exhaustive study of Celtic legends and folklore, eventually travelling to Ireland to hear the old stories first hand. Over the next twenty years he gained a degree in Theatre Arts, published twelve novels based around Irish tales he’d collected and another two non-fiction books based on his research. He also recorded six CDs of original music to accompany them. His autobiography, A Blessing and A Curse- Autism and Me, was published in 2007 to critical acclaim. Since then he's produced a further five CDs of original music, published another novel, The Lady of the Lamp, and a personal account of his encounters with the miraculous, titled; 'What is Magic?'
Caiseal is an author, musician, painter, sculptor and spiritual seeker. He lives and works in Australia with his wife, the portrait artist, Helen Wells.
Samples of his music may be heard on his website.

Review by: gwalch on May 29, 2011 :
I couldn't stop reading. Can you imagine an explorers guide to the universe? This is it. Not a guide to the best places to visit but a guide to creating your own journey and arriving at the unknown with a smile on your face. And a message of hope to all those who have ever been told "that just isn't possible"
If you are ready for a great adventure, this is the book for you!

Review by: Anna Branford on May 26, 2011 :
I read this book in one sitting, which is most unusual for me and is testament to a genuinely fascinating text. 'What is Magic?' is a complex discussion of magic and consciousness and their intersections, weaving together strands of deeply divergent bodies of knowledge (history, anthropology, neuroscience, politics, psychoanalysis, ayurveda, archaeology, music, mythology...) to create a deeply countercultural but also deeply reader-affirming message. One of my favourite parts is Mor's assertion of 'the importance of seeing ourselves as creators'. As well as leaving this book understanding something of the author's unapologetically unique worldview, I feel I've left it understanding something more of my own.
