More About the Author

Steven Ashe says that he wrote 'The Complete Golden Dawn Initiate' so that if he were ever lost on a desert island then he would still have the collected core texts upon which the Golden Dawn system of magick and mysticism was based upon.

In the 'Rosicrucians and Alchemists of La Belle Epoche' he explores how the Rosicrucian mythos informs modern day magick and mysticism in the esoteric tradition and throws new light upon the true identity of the mysterious 'Doctor Fulcanelli'.

In 'The Secret Symbols of the Tarot' he examines the historical accuracy of the Tarot, and the Qabalah of the 50 Gates' has been described as 'A modern day pilgrims progress'. He currently lives with his wife - 'Alrah' in the ancient Roman Town of Corbridge in Northumberland.

They are both astonished to find they have no cats.

A truly inspired work 13 July 2008
By Damian Murphy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Simply put, this book is a tremendous breath of fresh air which comes sorely needed in the dusty library that is 99% of modern occult writing. Many books on the subject of Western hermetic magic, specifically Golden Dawn or Thelemic magic, come out every year, containing little more than the same rituals, techniques and maxims re-hashed again and again and again. This book is truly different. I can honestly say that I've never seen anything like it before. It is a true original, a genuine work of inspiration.
Adapting the Sufi tradition of passing on sacred knowledge through allegorical stories, Ashe presents stories for 35 of the 50 Gates of Understanding (the first ten are elucidated directly, while gates 46-50 are presented in a slightly different form). The stories feature three main characters: Kif, Kilo and Coconut; representing the Neschamah, the Ruach and the Nephesch respectively. The characters weave in and out of the narrative throughout the course of the 50 gates, interacting with each other sometimes directly and sometimes indirectly. Each story stands on its own as a single lesson or allegory, while collectively they weave an intricate parable of the evolution of the soul. The whole work is shot through with the light of direct experience, rising far above the level of intellectual speculation.
The book is a pleasure to read. Time and time again I've come back to it, pondering the various levels of meaning contained within the stories. More than once it's helped me come to grips with some elusive aspect of my own spiritual progress. I highly recommend it to all seekers on the path of occult wisdom.

Inspirational 23 Mar. 2009
By A. McDonald - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a nice read and quite inspiring, in introducing the reader to the 50 gates. One must ponder and examine within to obtain some of the lessons here, and is especially effective for Thelemic students and adepts. I might add that this book is included in the "The Complete Golden Dawn Initiate", as well. This is a well done, inspirational book, and I can highly recommend it.
