Product Description

From the Back Cover

A Twenty-first-century Edition of a Magical Classic

Since it was first published in 1932, The Tree of Life has provided spiritual seekers and aspiring magicians with the most comprehensive study of the common threads of magical theory and practice. Israel Regardie's mission of bringing magic into the light of understanding takes a giant step forward in this new edition. Two Adept associates of Regardie's have contributed these enhancements:
-- Annotations throughout, with critical commentary and explanatory notes
-- A new introduction, glossary, bibliography, and index
-- Askenazic Hebrew translated to common Sephardic
-- A large number of new illustrations

If you are looking for a complete introduction to the study of magic, or if you have an older copy and would like a clearer, more usable version, you will not find a better choice than this edition of The Tree of Life.

About the Author

Israel Regardie (1907-1985) was credited with removing the excessive secrecy surrounding modern occultism and for making the techniques of high magic available to all interested students. This edition was annotated by two Senior Adepts of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.

By A Customer on 16 Mar. 1999
Format: Paperback
A clear and concise book explaining the root principles of magic in everyday terms. Filled with fascinating philosophies it was one of Regardies favourite works (and one of the first I read). Now reprinted it is an excellent source for both beginner and experienced magician alike. This is not a book containing set out rituals, but rather as its title suggests, a study in magic. It incorporates many systems and discusses them well. Subjects include yoga, qaballah, egyptian magic, the astral light, Divinity, training of the magician, the will, invocation and many more. A must for every occult library.

I have shelves groaning under the weight of erudite tomes on magick and psychology - Crowley, Jung et al. - but this book really is superb in every way. I can't explain why I never read Regardie before - I guess I thought he was just Crowley's poodle. How wrong can a fool be. No more words - just buy it.

Format: Paperback
Not only does this book give a broad coverage of all things 'magickal' it also provides clear intelligible explanation of all these aspects in a manner which will facilitate their practical usage and a real and steadily progressive development.
The one partial exception here is the moderately veiled chapter on alchemy. Yet even here he offers the keys.
Though an old book, by modern standards, this will be an excellent addition to any occult library.

Regardie's Tree of Life is invalueable to the student of both Qabalah and magic, introducing us to the methods employed by Aleister Crowley, the Golden Dawn and the Goetia. Regardie has extensively studied rituals of the Ancient Egyptians and Greeks and outlines simple formulas for performing the most complex rituals founded upon ancient knowledge. Also outlines the Augoeides working.

For the serious student this book is more than just a leasurely read. This is not just bedtime reading. This is part of a journey. I bought it with the aim to study the Tree of Life. It is the elements of a new life! I have not looked back!

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.

Format: Paperback
A book that does not seem to be among the first-mentioned classics of the genre, and I cannot imagine why. Syncretic presentations of magical philosophy and practice are numerous, borrowing from sources such as this, but this book has the unmistakably organic flow and seamlessness of form and substance that mark a deeply considered and eloquent utterance with the ring of mastery. Not a book in quite the modern style or tone, but in a literate, though unostentatious idiom, that does justice to the matter, and serves as an admirable introduction to the Art for such as would as soon not be spoon-fed with more or less predigested material. As an introduction to this subject likely ought to, it leans rather more to the theoretical and expository than to the practical, but makes the point as well and convincingly as I have ever seen that in this endeavor, "practical" exercise undertaken without a deeper understanding of its meaning, is of limited value. And certainly the book is not all as forbidding as the above might suggest, but a well-flowing and engaging volume. Very recommended to whoever welcomes an intellectually and spiritually rewarding challenge.

Isreal Regardies master work on the tree of life. It does not suffer from the addition of new material from his students either. A must have for anyone who is serious about studting the tree of life.

I only wish I had found this book sooner but better to have later then to never have had the opportunity to read it. Now I have one in my collection. This book explains everything about Magick, how and why it works, and it is written by a man who was once a member of The Golden Dawn, so you know this is about Real Magick. Although there are many books out there about Magick, this one differs not only because of the indepth detail in which Regardie writes, but the passion in which he does it in. The language he uses which makes even the most complicated seem simple and easy understand.
