Founded upon the revolutionary premise that High Magick can be distilled to a few powerful and efficient steps, Louis T. Culling’s original edition of this classic magick book broke all the rules.
Llewellyn is proud to present an updated and expanded edition of this pioneering work.
The G...B...G..., or “Great Brotherhood of God,” was a magickal order founded by acclaimed magician Frater Genesthai. Louis T. Culling, one of the initial members of the G...B...G... in California, was instructed by Genesthai to reveal the Order’s magickal curriculum when the time was right.
Carl Llewellyn Weschcke, publisher of Culling’s original edition of this book, offers illuminating commentary, definitions, and discussion points to render these profound magickal philosophies and practices even more accessible and relevant for contemporary magickal practice. This new edition is also an interesting philosophical commentary, answering a number of questions about historical occult orders and figures like Aleister Crowley. The techniques taught in this curriculum include:
—Dream Recall and Interpretation —Functioning in the Borderland —Finding One’s True Magickal Identity —The Retirement Ritual —The Invocation of Thoth —Ritual Divination —Imprinting the I Ching on the Body —The Three Degrees of Sex Magick —Thelema and the Magickal Will —Invocation of Human Quality —The Rite of Transubstantiation —Conversations with a God —Magickal Offspring—the Familiar —The Great Lunar Trances
