An accessible guide to Thelema – philosophy, ritual, magick, and Crowley. Foreword by Lon Milo DuQuette.


Subtitled A Practical Guide to Attainment in Aleister Crowley's System of Magick, this book covers different topics of interest to those who work with Crowley's system of Thelema. The book is divided into three sections: 'Tools for the Journey', which examines the fundamental concepts and techniques required to understand Thelema, such as the Qabalah, the Holy Guardian Angel, True Will, and basic rituals such as the Lesser and Greater rituals of the Pentagram and of the Hexagram. The second section, 'Perspectives on the Path of Attainment', focuses on the transcendental aspects of the work, such as initiation, magical power, and alchemy. Lastly, 'Life Outside the Temple' draws on the author's own training as a clinical psychologist and discusses the Great Work in the wider context of the Thelemite's everyday life. There is a depth of wisdom and insight that makes this book highly recommendable to both new seekers and long-time Thelemites.
