Advancing to higher levels of ritual magic with purpose and power requires an exaltation of consciousness-a spiritual transformation that can serve as an antitode to the seeming banality of modern life.

Based on Kabbalistic techniques, the teachings of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, and an Hermetic tradition spanning nearly two thousand years, this innovative new work introduces the history of the Golden Dawn and its mythology, the Tree of Life, Deities, demons, rules for practicing magic, and components of effective ritual.

A comprehensive course of self-initiation using Israel Regardie's seminal Golden Dawn as a key reference point, Kabbalah, Magic and the Great Work of Self-Transformation guides you through the levels of the Golden Dawn system of ritual magic. Each grade in this system corresponds with a sphere in the Kabbalistic Tree of Life and includes daily rituals, required reading, written assignments, projects, and additional exercises.

Knowledgeable and true to tradition, author Lyam Thomas Christopher presents a well-grounded and modern step-by-step program toward spiritual attainment, providing a lucid gateway toward a more awakened state.

It’s not just our affinity for western education, our inclination toward medicine, the sciences and winning Nobel prizes. There seems to be a well-known and ancient association between Jews and hard intellectualism. “Talmudic logic” is a by-word...

According to Rabbi Geoffrey Dennis, author of The Encyclopedia of Jewish Myth, Magic and Mysticism, a myth is not "something that never happened," a good myth is about something that happens all the time. How do you define mythology, and is it an important concept in your spiritual life? Rabbi Dennis explores the mythology of the Jewish religion and how mythology can be applied in modern life.

Though I grew up in a modern household, my family belonged to the Orthodox branch of Judaism. We kept a kosher home, observed the major holidays, my sister and I went to Hebrew school — and yet, I never heard the word “Kabbalah.” It was not until I ...
For decades now, scholars have been debunking the tenets of Christianity. The movie The Da Vinci Code dramatizes some of their findings, revealing how the church fabricated its own lineage in order to remake itself into a holy, governmental ...

When we think of meditation, we tend to think of Eastern meditation techniques. Many are familiar with zazen, for example—sitting, attending to the breath, and bringing the mind back from stray thoughts.
