1. Books by Beyerl and books published by The Hermit's Grove

 catalog.05

Long, long ago, in a land thousands of miles to the east, we produced our first ‘book.’ The Holy Books of the Devas, a small, center-stapled book(let) was 48 pages long, filled with magickal text and artwork. It was the beginning of our move into publishing.
In 1993 our parent organization, The Rowan Tree Church purchased an inexpensive (plastic!) binder and began doing manual comb binding of its own publications. A couple of years later this was replaced with far better Ibimatic manual system.
When Rev. Paul looked for a publisher for Painless Astrology and a new edition of The Holy Books of the Devas, he tried a publisher in Palm Springs, CA, which proved quite unworkable. As the stock of books published by IGOS dwindled, one day while at the local printer, Rev. Paul saw an order of printed and bound books. He began asking questions and soon after, on January 7, 1997, Painless Astrology went into production. This was followed by the fourth edition of The Holy Books of the Devas in 1998 and then by A Wiccan Bardo, Revisited in 1999.
The Hermit’s Grove, an educational division of The Rowan Tree Church, now includes its own publishing house.
In 2005 we moved our printing and binding to Fidlar Doubleday, which now provides us with a greatly improved quality.
In the United States books are available directly through The Hermit’s Grove and The Rowan Tree Church, with most titles available through Amazon.com, and distributed by New Leaf. In Europe our books are distributed by Deep Books, LTD.
Here, then, are these exceptional books which will further your knowledge and wisdom:
