The Incredible Union of Witchcraft and High Magick

The original writings of people such as Gerald Gardner and Alex Sanders, founders of modern Witchcraft, were filled with the techniques of Ceremonial, or High, Magick. Gardner even proudly proclaimed his membership in Aleister Crowley's Ordo Templi Ordis. But in the following half-century, Witchcraft abandoned much of High Magick in favor of folk magick such as herb magic, knot magic, stone magic, and simple yet effective spells.

Now, popular author Christopher Penczak reunites the power of ceremonial magick with Witchcraft in The Temple of High Witchcraft, the highly anticipated fourth volume in his Temple of Witchcraft series.

A Year and a Day of Magick
The Temple of High Witchcraft provides a complete course in ceremonial magick that is uniquely centered on how it combines with Witchcraft. As you have come to expect in this series, the book features over forty exercises and more than ninety charts and figures to make understanding the information easy. More importantly, it allows you to spend the traditional year and a day in training and putting the rituals, techniques, and magick you have learned into practical use. It includes:

· A Pagan perspective on typical rituals such as the Qabalistic Cross
· Instructions for making holy water
· Techniques for Rising on the Planes—the secret of astral projection
· Numerous pathworkings to help you understand the Sephiroth
· The secrets of advanced Qabalistic rituals
· The way to vibrate Words of Power
· How to perform Goetic magick—the evocation of spirits

The Temple of High Witchcraft features specific directions for performing the famous Bornless Ritual, which will allow you to invoke your higher self and obtain direct information from your Holy Guardian Angel. It teaches both traditional and alternative versions of powerful rites, including a Chaos Magick version of the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram that is designed to dispel gloom and seriousness.

Bring Back the Magick
In The Temple of High Witchcraft, Penczak invites Witches to continue their spiritual evolution by exploring, in depth, the arts of ceremonial magick and reuniting them in their traditional Witchcraft partnership. You will learn to integrate these ideas and practices into your observance of the Craft, no matter what tradition you follow.

If you want to bring even more power to your magickal practices, or if you want to learn how the Qabalah can enhance Witchcraft, this book is a must. It's also an important addition to the collections of all of Penczak's students and fans.

It seems strange, doesn't it? A patron saint of people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and all other sexually fluid shades in-between. Popular opinion would have us believe that, by default, a saint would be against such liberal sexuality, but then again, just because an opinion is popular doesn't mean that it's true.
