Purchase-North-Asian-Magic-at-the-Lucky-Mojo-Curio-Company

The people of North Asia have an extraordinary range of beliefs and practices, both indigenous and influenced by their geographic neighbours, the Animist, Shamanic, and Buddhist folk magicians of Mongolia, Manchuria, and Eastern Siberia. Their culture preserves a vital religio-magical tradition by which people seek and obtain blessings, protection, luck, love, and health.

David Borji Shi, an American of Manchurian heritage, brings us authentic spells and methodologies from this remote corner of the world, and teaches us how to use the tools and techniques of North Asian magic. This book will open your eyes to diverse cultural customs and spell-casting methods that you may never have known existed.
