5.0 out of 5 stars First Class occultism, 29 Oct. 2003
This review is from: Circles of Power: Ritual Magic in the Western Tradition (Paperback)
This is an absolutely first rate book. Greer discusses modern ritual magic from the golden dawn tradition in what is probably the most succinct and informatory book on the subject ever. He covers the major rituals and does what practically no other author does in explaining the why things are done as they are.
He explains the system as it was before Regardie book in a much more informative way. This is not to decry Regardie, whose books are very informative and useful, but when Regardie published "The Golden Dawn" he was not aware of much of the inner teachings and so his work was missing the all important inner details which turn dry ritual into living magical experience. Greer adds to the corpus of knowledge by restoring the original middle pillar exercise and discussing the greater middle pillar which does not appear elsewhere in print to my knowledge and so far has only been circululated in restricted documents.
Greer also goes into the magical philosophy and how it evolved from the earlier hermetic and renessance traditions. I cannot rate this book highly enough or recommend a better book for an aspiring seeker.
