Reading List

My current spiritual reading is The Flower and the Scorpion: Sexuality and Ritual in Early Nahua Culture by Pete Sigal.

I think, since that book is focused on Tlazolteotl, I will progress through the mup pantheon in reverse alphabetical order, each deity in turn as a focus for my spiritual reading, interspersed with texts about monasticism in various traditions. Thus, the list as it stands is (NOTA BENE:  The vast majority of these books I do not yet own; some of them can be acquired legally ior illegally from the net, but not all -- if anyone wants to buy me a gift, buy me the next on the list!):
