Francis I. Regardie, born in London, England, November 17, 1907; died in Sedona, Arizona, March 10, 1985. Came to the United States in August 1921, educated in Washington D.C. and studied art in school in Washington and Philadelphia. Returned to Europe in 1928 at the invitation of Aleister Crowley to work as his secretary and study with him. Returned to London as secretary to Thomas Burke 1932-34, and during that time wrote "A Garden of Pomegranates" and "The Tree of Life." In 1934 he was invited to join the Order of the Golden Dawn, Stella Matutina Temple, during which time he wrote "The Middle Pillar" and "The Art of True Healing," and did the basic work for "The Philosopher's Stone." Returning to the United States in 1937 he entered Chiropractic College in New York, Graduating in 1941, and published "The Golden Dawn. Served in the U.S. Army 1942-1945, and then moved to Los Angeles where he opened a chiropractic practice and taught psychiatry. Upon retirement in 1981, he moved to Sedona. During his lifetime, he studied psychoanalysis with Dr. E. Clegg and Dr. J. L. Bendit, and later studied psychotherapy under Dr. Nandor Fodor. His training encompassed Freudian, Jungian and Reichian methods. Both Chic and Tabatha are Chief Adepts of the Golden Dawn as re-established by Israel Regardie. The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, of which Chic is the G.H. Imperator, and Tabatha is the G.H. Cancellaria, is an international Order with Temples in several countries. The Ciceros have written numerous books on the Golden Dawn, Tarot, and Magic, including Self-Initiation into the Golden Dawn Tradition, The Essential Golden Dawn, Tarot Talismans, and updates, annotations and introductions to classic Israel Regardie texts such as The Philosopher's Stone, The Middle Pillar and A Garden of Pomegranates.

The word “skrying” means “to see” or “observe” and refers to the type of clairvoyance where use is made of mirrors, crystals, water in a bowl (like Galadriël in Lord of the Rings) or the tarot, to concentrate and focus psychic abilities in order to receive and interpret visions in the normal state of waking consciousness.
Regardie published this work in 1932 as an easy albeit comprehensive guide to the complex system of the Qabalah and to serve as a key to its symbolism. The primary symbol of this ancient Hebrew system is the tree of life that has been used for centuries as a means to study the nature of the cosmos and the qualities of the psyche.
With its emphasis on direct experience by meditating on the paths of wisdom, this is a most understandable introduction to the Qabalah. The editors have enhanced this classic work with their commentary, notes and a system of reference and have added practical material in the form of meditations, exercises, rituals and mantras.
Garden of Pomegranates is an excellent book for those interested in the working of the mind, in psychology, parapsychology and for practicians of the magical arts. This edition contains a glossary, bibliography and index. The text is enhanced by 52 beautiful illustrations and figures.
I did not just buy it to read it but to study it. Expect to have your horizons broadened and your old wineskins changed! It is powerful and transforming.
Thank you for your hard work. I have since bought this as a gift for numerous others who are awakening. I recommended it to lots more...Make sure there is enough around as I know I will be ordering more of this book! It is a truly valuable resource.
Now I have re-bought it & have the time to really study it I am certain I shall be able to open the curtain between the worlds & really get to know the 'upper worlds.'
Thankyou Cicero & Cicero for the excellent pathworkings, i am already getting results. I love your works, Self-Initiation into the GD system is a beautiful book well worth any true magus' or prietess' money & time. Time we all should devote to this work of manifesting the Divine in the everydayA Garden of Pomegranates world around us. God bless all who do so!
