500 Nations is an eight-part documentary that explores the history of the indigenous peoples of North and Central America, from pre-Colombian times through the period of European contact and colonization, to the end of the 19th century and the subjugation of the Plains Indians of North America. 500 Nations utilizes historical texts, eyewitness accounts, pictorial sources and computer graphic reconstructions to explore the magnificent civilizations which flourished prior to contact with Western civilization, and to tell the dramatic and tragic story of the Native American nations' desperate attempts to retain their way of life against overwhelming odds.

|The Inner Temple of Witchcraft: |
and Psychic Development
Magick, Meditation and Psychic Development
Explore your Inner Temple—your personal sacred space where there are no boundaries and all things are possible. With study, dedication, and practice, the lessons and exercises in this book will empower you to transform the repetitive rigors of the daily grind into a witch's web of magickal experiences.
The Inner Temple of Witchcraft is a thorough course of education, introspection, meditation, and the development of the magickal and psychic abilities that are the birthright of the witch. Four introductory chapters present the history, traditions, and principles of witchcraft, followed by thirteen lessons that start with basic meditation techniques and culminate in a self-initiation ceremony equivalent to the first-degree level of traditional coven-based witchcraft.
As you progress through this year-and-a-day course of study, you will explore a wide range of topics that support and inform the dedicated witch:
- Ancient and modern magickal philosophy
- Modern scientific theories supporting a new definition of reality
- "Instant" magick techniques for protection, healing, and serenity
- Energy work and anatomy, including chakras and auras
- Astral travel, dreams, and spirit guides
- Healing techniques for body, mind, and spirit
- This book's non-dogmatic presentation encourages an eclectic, personal approach while providing a strong foundation for the practice of witchcraft and magick. Develop your psychic abilities and practice potent magickal techniques as you explore the source of every witch's power—the temple within.

|Tree of Life Meditation Necklace|
Handmade Art Pendant
From Laura Milnor Iverson
"Tree of Life Meditation" A woman sits beneath a tree of life meditating on the chakras, which are swirling around the full moon. She wears a white peasant blouse and blue jeans, her hair tied in a single braid down her back. The tree was inspired by the gnarled old oaks in my native California landscape. The joyful chakras have a nod to the colorful tie dye art of the hippie era. Offered as a handcrafted pendant from artwork by California Artist Laura Milnor Iverson. Pendant size: 1 1/4" or 30mm round (not including the bail, which is the loop that fits over the necklace). Material: Archival print topped with a glass cabochon. For the setting, silver plating on zinc alloy base metal. A black ribbon necklace is included so the piece is ready to wear. These have an extender chain that adjusts from approximately 16 1/2" - 18", closing with a lobster claw clasp. Please note that this wearable art is not waterproof.
