Llewellyn was the company that republished the original books on the Golden Dawn after they had been ignored for over a quarter of a century. We have always thought that the Golden Dawn was important.
That's why I'm glad we can present Self-Initiation into the Golden Dawn Tradition by Chic and Sandra Tabatha Cicero. It offers the most comprehensive and scientific system for studying the Golden Dawn tradition ever published.
With this book, you have everything necessary to initiate yourself through the outer grades of the Golden Dawn, from Neophyte through Portal a total of six initiation ceremonies. These rituals are specially designed for the solitary practitioner, but they can be adapted for groups of two or more magicians. Each grade initiation is followed by a comprehensive Knowledge Lecture for you to study and absorb. Each chapter provides an examination at the end, so you can test your grasp of the material and check the answers in the back of the book.
The Knowledge Lectures are expanded with more in-depth information than has ever been published in one place before. You will learn other rituals, divination, and more as you move through the Grades. Never before have the teachings of the Golden Dawn been so readily available. You can learn it all when you get Self-Initiation into the Golden Dawn Tradition.
