Rediscover the Magick of the Gods and Goddesses: Revealing the Mysteries of Theurgy

$24.99

By Jean-Louis de Biasi

The philosophical roots of much of Wicca and Paganism, as well as Western ceremonial magick, come from ancient Egypt. In this thoroughly researched book, the Grand Master of the Aurum Solis shares the history and evolution of the theurgic tradition?including the origins of Hermeticism in Egypt and the Mediterranean world, the birthplace of the theurgic tradition?and how-to instructions for discovering the presence of the Divine in the world.

Providing a seven-step system of exercises and rituals to help the reader achieve higher levels of consciousness, Jean-Louis de Biasi also includes tips and techniques for working with sacred texts, information about the five temples of the human being, The Great Work, the three cosmic rituals, and the real planetary days. A valuable resource for those interested in the history and practices of the Western Mystery Tradition.
