An Awesome Masterpiece in Magic",
This review is from: Self-initiation into the Golden Dawn Tradition: A Complete Curriculum of Study for Both the Solitary Magician and the Working Magical Group (Llewellyn's Golden Dawn) (Paperback)
I have gone through the pages of the book and could not say much but my advice is: "Go get it" if you are a serious occult student particularly interested in the Golden Dawn type of magic and occultism. You might also want to complement this book with Israel Regardie's "The Golden Dawn" for Inner order materials which you will need later on. The book is splendid, awesome and worths your money. The Ciceiro's are great in bringing magic to live!
The rituals, lectures and knowledge lectures take you step by step, in your own pace, from Neophyte up to the Portal grade. Some people may argue that self-initiation is not valid, but this is unfounded. One of the great French mystics, Jean Dubius of the defunct Philosophers of Nature even postulated self-initiation and it works. Israel regardie also believed that the repeated performance of the Opening by Watch Tower ceremony can result in astral initiation into becoming an adept of the second order.
This book is a tool for you! How long you dwell in darkness? Quit the Night and Seek the Day!!!
