Please note the following preview pages are in a low resolution to reduce file size, so the quality will appear grainy. Actual book and e-book will be clear and in standard resolution.
In addition to the table of contents, you’ll find the list of illustrations and list of tables. I hope these front pages will give you a sense of the breadth and scope of my book.
Exoteric versus esoteric Taoism, the Taoist ontology for crafting Fu sigils, and what exactly is a Fu talisman. This document is only a partial preview of Chapter 1. The complete Chapter 1 is not provided here.
This will give you a sense of accompanying end notes for each chapter.
Let’s not cry wolf but also let’s know how to spot the wolf when it tries to pass under sheep’s clothing. I wrote this book with the intent that Fu sigil crafting and the principles espoused herein can be integrated with, adapted into, or modified to work with a Western practitioner’s current path. Yet to do so competently, you’ll want to be informed about the culture and history of Fu, which is what this book attempts to provide.
I figure a peek into the final chapter of the book paired with the opening chapter will give you the clearest sense of whether you want to buy The Tao of Craft and own it as part of your personal library.
Loads of appendices at the end of the book provide invaluable references, correspondence tables, and practical Fu sigil and spell-crafting instruction. Appendix J is a brief, summarizing timeline of Taoist magical craft in China.
Along with the table of contents, check out the index to get an accurate sense for whether this book is right for you.
