This Thelemic work deals with a part of the occult process known as the attainment of the 'knowledge & conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel' and the famed 'crossing of the abyss.' Gunther, in his study of these traumatic initiatory experiences, draws upon Jungian psychology, world mythology and religion, but his analysis lies firmly in the Western mysteries, which keeps the essential focus and clarity of the work. The book has many illustrations, some full colour, and numerous diagrams. This book is a companion volume to Gunther's well-received first work,
Initiation in the Aeon of the Child.
