Dion Fortune's work is a classic of the Western mysteries kabbalah, and is one of the titles Treadwells recommends for the student seeking to understand the subject. It was was one of the first books to present the Western Mysteries to readers in a clear and comprehensive manner and it has never been bettered. At the core of the work is the detailed account of the Tree of Life and the sephiroth. But more than this, it sets out the principles of the kabbalah, its symbolism; its relationship to tarot and other facets of western occultism. This edition contains additional, supplementary material by Dion Fortune and other members of the Society of the Inner Light.
