Long considered the best single introduction to the Qabalah for magicians, the third edition of Israel Regardie's A Garden of Pomegranates is now better than ever, thanks to the extensive annotations and new material by Chic Cicero and Sandra Tabatha Cicero. Their work has made A Garden of Pomegranateseasier to understand, more complete, and up to date.

The Qabalah is the ancient system of Hebrew mysticism that is the foundation of Western magical and esoteric studies. Its primary symbol is the Tree of Life, a diagram that can aid in the study of the nature of the Universe, the essence of God, and the human mind, spirit, and soul. A Garden of Pomegranates is the clearest introductory guide on this subject.
When Israel Regardie wrote A Garden of Pomegranates in 1932, he designed it to be a simple yet comprehensive guidebook outlining the complex system of the Qabalah and providing a key to its symbolism. Since then, it has achieved the status of a classic among texts on the Qabalah. The full annotations, critical commentary, and explanatory notes now make this book the ultimate single resource on the subject. The new material, including pathworkings, exercises, daily affirmations, rituals, meditations, and more, not only complement the original, full text included in this edition, but also make A Garden of Pomegranates indispensable for modern magicians.
Alchemy is considered one of the principle branches of the Western Esoteric Tradition. But while many students are familiar with astrology and the Qabalah, far fewer are acquainted with the basics of alchemy (which is often misrepresented and well-hidden). Chic and Sandra Tabatha Cicero discuss Israel Regardie's The Philosopher's Stone and the powerful message it brings to alchemical seekers.
There are two people more responsible for the rebirth of magick in the second half of the twentieth century than anyone else. The first is publisher Carl Llewellyn Weschcke. His publication of classic and new books on magick and astrology, as well as some of the first accurate books on Wicca and Witchcraft, literally changed the world. One of the things he did was purchase the copyrights to...
Magick has evolved tremendously over the past few years. It has stood the test of time, overcome the slander of contrary opinion, and it has taken a very deep position in the mainstream community. The new faces and names to the occult remain loyal to their traditions, but are not bound by it, and all of us have built our foundation from the techniques of elder work. What will the magickal foundation be like for those of tomorrow?
Many years ago I purchased some copies of an old British magazine called The Occult Review. In the January 1933 issue was an article entitled “Ceremonial Magic Unveiled” by noted occultist Dion Fortune, defending the writings of a young man named ...

At a time when magic was regarded by most as suspect at best and dangerously evil at worst, Israel Regardie saw magic as a precise scientific discipline as well as a highly spiritual way of life. At the age of twenty-four, he took on the enormous ...
In western ceremonial magick, there is often a tendency to view a magickal operation as something that is at odds with the natural order of the universe. This is very much the core of the western mindset, where nature is something external to oneself to be "conquered." Human individuality and the Will of the magician are thought to be somehow... read this article
