21ST CENTURY MAGE Bring the Divine Down to Earth Jason Augustus Newcomb
For the first time since its initial translation into English at the turn of the century, Jason Newcomb has reinterpreted the sacred magic of Abramelin the Mage into a completely relevant program for contemporary seekers. In the thirty-one chapters of 21st Century Mage , Newcomb has reinvented the "Knowledge and Conversation of Your Holy Guardian Angel" ritual. He lays out a course of practice and prayer -- and introduces a whole new generation to the Crowleyan esthetic. Thought to be the simplest and most effective explanation of secret Western doctrine, The Book of the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage, a 15th century text, laid the foundation for the nineteenth century occult group, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, and set young Aleister Crowley on his spiritual quest. This is the book that served as the cornerstone of Crowley's lifelong practice.
Newcomb's hip, non-denominational reinterpretation requires only openness to the universe and a yearning for understanding and transcendental knowledge. Describing himself as a skeptical and pragmatic mystic, Newcomb shows how drug abuse, sexual compulsion, overeating, fanaticism in all its permutations, are all misplaced yearnings for the "Knowledge and Conversation of Your Holy Guardian Angel."
Jason Newcomb combines ideas and exercises from writers through the ages with the Abramelin techniques he himself has used to lose weight and quit smoking.
From the beginning of time, an obscure quality within the human spirit has sought the blessings for the three kingdoms of the earth — animal, vegetable and mineral. Whether they are simple or complex, rare or commonplace, beautiful or awesome, all three share mysterious properties defined over the centuries by occult traditions.
Here, in one slender volume, is an A to Z of the essential charms. From amber to the zodiac, from ankh to yin and yang, Elizabeth Pepper defines, describes and explains the uses of these key magical talismans, charms and fetishes.
Like Judika Illes' 'Encyclopedia of 5,000 Spells,' THE ABC OF MAGIC CHARMS will appeal to people who are interested in magic, folklore and mythology and to those interested in the occult and anthropology.
This is an expanded and updated edition of 'Magic Charms from A to Z'.
"Magick is a subtle and curious thing and often works in ways you do not expect and at times 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

Mandalas have long been recognised as important tools in Eastern spiritual traditions for focusing meditation. Though various Western traditions possess such contemplative tools, they have often not been recognised as such, except by those deeply schooled in Western esotericism. Adam McLean remedies this situation by presenting and analysing in great depth, over forty beautiful engravings, reproduced as full-page illustrations, from alchemical, kabbalistic, magical, Rosicrucian and Hermetic sources.
This is the first book exclusively dedicated to the mandala tradition in the West and is an extremely valuable sourcework on account of the illustrations and commentaries. Not only is THE ALCHEMICAL MANDALA a comprehensive guide on how to "read" the cosmological and spiritual symbolism of alchemical engravings, it, also, outlines three ways for working practically with these mandalas in meditation.
Formerly handed down under oath of secrecy, this clear, concise handbook discusses: the fundamental principles of alchemy; directions for the formation of an inexpensive home laboratory, with illustrations of the necessary equipment; step-by-step instructions for the work of the Lesser Circulation, the alchemical transformation within the plant kingdom?the necessary prerequisite for any work in the mineral kingdom.
The gothic art and the powerful images taken from the world of alchemy find their way into this compelling tarot deck. Skulls, black roses, cruel swords and witchcraft pentacles open the gates to the world of alchemy.
ALCHEMY AND KABBALAH IN THE TAROT The Keys of Radical Spiritual Transformation Samael Aun Weor
This book describes the transformative power of the ancient sciences of alchemy and Kabbalah. It shows how our human consciousness can expand to perceive matter and energy invisible to the flesh.
Samael Aun Weor remains largely unknown in the English-speaking world. But in his native Latin America, he is known internationally as the founder of the very widespread Gnostic Movement and writer of over seventy books about the universal cosmic religion from which all mystical and religious traditions blossomed. In recent years, due to the efforts made by a small handful of people who arrived in English-speaking countries in order to share their experience and enthusiasm for the practical and effective science of Gnosis, interest in Samael Aun Weor has been growing.
ALEISTER CROWLEY AND THE PRACTICE OF THE MAGICAL DIARY Revised and Expanded Edition James Wasserman
This important collection includes Aleister Crowley's two most important instructional writings on the design and purpose of the magical diary, John St. John and A Master of the Temple. These were the only two works regarding the magical diary published in Crowley's lifetime. Both were first published in Crowley's immense collection of magical instruction, The Equinox. John St. John chronicles Crowley's moment-by-moment progress during a 13-day magical working. Crowley referred to it as "a perfect model of what a magical record should be." A Master of the Temple is taken from the magical diary of Frater Achad at a time when he was Crowley's most valued and successful student. It provides an invaluable example of a student's record, plus direct commentary and instruction added by Crowley.
With commentary and introductory material by editor James Wasserman, Aleister Crowley and the Practice of the Magical Diary is the most important and accessible instruction available to students of the occult regarding the practice of keeping a magical diary.
This revised edition includes a new introduction by Wasserman, a foreword by noted occult scholar J. Daniel Gunther, revisions throughout the text, a revised reading list for further study, plus Crowley's instructions on banishing from Liber O.
