Introduction by Lon Milo DuQuette
Thelemic Magick as it is practiced today owes an unmistakable debt to its main proponent, Aleister Crowley. And yet Thelemic Magick, separate from Crowley’s admittedly polarizing exploits and personality, remains one of the most effective and well-documented systems of ritual magick available to modern spiritual seekers. Rodney Orpheus does a remarkable job presenting this magical system in a way that will have even neophytes practicing magick – and more important, understanding it – in no time.
Abrahadabra covers the meditation, ritual, and philosophy that form the foundation of magical study in a fun and casual style and balances this theory with hands-on exercises. Abrahadabra is an excellent introduction to Crowley’s form of magick, and it presents a workable system of magick for anyone interested in “The Science and Art of causing Change in accordance with the Will.”
“Remember always: magick is a subtle and curious thing and often works in ways you do not expect – but it always works. Every magical act brings a result, as you are about to learn.” – Rodney Orpheus, from the Introduction.
