Aleister Crowley's Magick Books

Crowley is the lynch-pin of modern of occultism and his books are lucid and well-written as whole, but for a new student Crowley can be daunting to say the least. Where does one even start? His classic of modern occultism, Magick Book 4, is not for the squeamish. It’s detailed, symbolic, and if you were […]

Black or White Magick: Which is more powerful?

Is your your magick book difficult to read and practice? Or is it dumbed down?

Neither! I’ve tried to make the difficult and erudite subject of magick EASY for you to learn and practice without losing any of the nuance and details of real magick. While there are simple and clear rituals and meditations to change every aspect of your life, there is no dumbing down here. Have I simplified […]

Is this book Thelemic?

Thelema is Crowley’s philosophy and system of magick based on the teachings of the The Book of the Law. While Crowley’s system is unique, it is heavily rooted in Hermeticism as taught to him by the Golden Dawn. I have no intentions of making this a specifically “Thelemic” book; however, Thelema is non-dogmatic, meaning you […]
