Kabbalah, Magic, & the Great Work of Self-Transformation is a masterful blend of tradition and innovation. Rather than rehash the old Golden Dawn rituals, Christopher provides a curriculum that remains true to its source--the influencial Order of the Golden Dawn--while including well-tried and practical innovation for the solitary practitioner. Simultaneously lyrical and informative, this book is at once self-training guide, reference work, and handbook of practical theurgy."
<br>Patrick Dunn, author of Post-Modern Magic.  
“In Kabbalah, Magic, & the Great Work of Self-Transformation Christopher has taken the Golden Dawn teachings and reduced them to their bare bones essentials, presenting them in a dense, power-packed curriculum for the aspiring adept. Well known Second Order rituals are presented in a coherent and practical manner creating a well-rounded program of study that can be used for both solitary and group practice."
<br> Mark Stavish, Director of Studies, Institute for Hermetic Studies, author of The Path of Alchemy: Energetic Healing and Natural Magic.

"A complete initiation into the Western esoteric tradition, using the practical teachings of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn as its framework. The author shows how ritual magic is relevant to the modern world, and how it can be used for personal empowerment. Readers seeking to weave together the numerous threads of Western magic into a coherent whole that they can apply in their own lives will find all the guidance they need in this book."
<br>Donald Tyson

"Kabbalah, Magic and the Great Work of Self-Transformation is a wonderful addition to the body of work being produced by Western magicians of the twenty-first century. Author Lyam Thomas Christopher was trained in a modern-day temple of the Golden Dawn tradition, and his knowledge of the system is self-evident. This book provides a comprehensive and innovative curriculum for Self-Initiation into the esoteric current represented by the Golden Dawn system of Magic. An abundance of information is presented by the author in down-to-earth language that beginners and more advanced practitioners will certainly appreciate. Readers do not need to experience the group initiation ceremonies of a formal temple, because the author supplies study material, coursework, rituals, and exercises for the various levels that correspond to the grades of the Golden Dawn, from Neophyte to Adept. Kabbalah, Magic and the Great Work of Self-Transformation offers the student a fresh perspective on the process of Self-Initiation into the Western Esoteric Tradition. Readers who immerse themselves into the work provided by this text will be well on their way to the completion of the Great Work."--Chic & Tabatha Cicero

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. Or maybe we think of yogic meditation, focused on a particular image or idea to the exclusion of all else. "Meditation" just comes with an... read this article
