Wings of Rapture takes a nondenominational approach to mysticism. From the initial euphoric experience to the “dark night of the soul” and beyond, this book will serve as a guide as you seek your own path to enlightenment. Learn methods of altering consciousness to open the doors of perception to the metaphysical realms. Discover techniques for creating sacred space conducive to successful meditation and contemplation. If you’re currently involved with an established religion, magickal order, coven, or popular guru, it can help you slice through the embellishments of other people’s visions to find your own. This is a revised and expanded re-print of the book originally entitled “The Way of Mystery: Magick, Mysticism and Self-Transcendence.”
Nema and World War II were born in September 1939; history has grown increasingly more complex ever since. Her formal education occurred in parochial schools, a convent boarding school, and at the College of Mount St. Joseph near Cincinnati, Ohio, where she received a B.A. in English. In her search for transmundane knowledge and understanding, she has relied on her experiences, and on those of her colleagues, with vision trances, unlearned knowledge, and spiritual ecstasy, interpreted through traditional theories, practices and beliefs. Inspired by a document received in vision trance, Liber Pennae Praenumbra (first published in the Cincinnati Journal of Ceremonial Magick (CJCM), edited by Louis Martinie), Nema wrote Maat Magick: a Guide to Self-Initiation to present her version of magickal Initiatory processes and progress. Her teachers were the writings of several experienced authors in the Western occult tradition: Aleister Crowley, Dion Fortune, Kenneth Grant, Frater Achad, Israel Regardie, and a few others.
