Synopsis: TAI MAGIC: ARTS OF THE SUPERNATURAL IN THE SHAN STATES AND LAN NA

Within the context of Tai cosmology and numerology, Therevada Buddhism and spirit religion, this lavishly illustrated book examines how good and bad spirits are formulated to bring good luck and protection or to cause bad luck. Extensive field-work studies over a period of four years were conducted in the Shan States (now part of Burma/Myanmar) and in northern Thailand. Using her field notes and photographs, Susan Conway provides a colourful picture of the people who create magic and explains how mystical remedies are prescribed and the rituals involved. She includes material from museum collections in the USA, UK and Thailand.

about author

Susan Conroy made her first trip to Calcutta to work with Mother Teresa and the Missionaries of Charity in 1986. In 1987, at the request of Mother Teresa herself, Susan stayed in the Order's convent in the South Bronx, New York, in contemplation of the religious life.

Susan did not enter the Order, but in 1991, during Lent, she once again returned to Calcutta to work with the Sisters among the dying destitutes. She and Mother Teresa kept in touch until Mother's death in 1997. Before being called Home to God, Mother Teresa gave Susan permission to write a book about her experiences. Mother Teresa's Lessons of Love and Secrets of Sanctity is Susan's first book, followed by Praying In The Presence Of Our Lord With Mother Teresa. Today, Susan travels around the country giving presentations on her experiences with Blessed Teresa of Calcutta. Susan also translates books from French into English. Each book translation relates to Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, including The Power of Confidence by Father Conrad DeMeester, The End of the Present World and the Mysteries of the Future Life by Father Charles Arminjon, and The Plays of St. Thérèse of Lisieux. Susan has made numerous personal and television appearances for local as well as worldwide audiences. On EWTN's global television network, she hosted a 13-part mini-series of shows called "Speaking of Saints" as well as a brand new mini-series called "Coming to Christ" which started airing on EWTN in June 2014.
