Review

"The Golden Dawn Journal series is a welcome contribution to late-twentieth century esotericism. Unlike many works published about the Golden Dawn and related schools of Magic, Kabbalah, and Hermeticism, The Golden Dawn Journal, edited by the husband and wife team of Chic and Sandra Cicero is a compendium of fresh material by a number of different authors. Each of them is a practicing magician or ritualist in his or her own right, making this collection reflective of experience and not the usual armchair occultism." [.] "Book Two in the series, Qabalah: Theory and Magic, reflects the fact that the Ciceros were long-time students and friends of the late Francis Israel Regardie, to whom the book is dedicated. If it was Regardie who opened up the gates of initiation and Golden Dawn magic to the masses with his publication of the order's rituals, then it very well may be the Ciceros who will keep it a living and vibrant modern system of magic."

About the Golden Dawn Journal Series

The Golden Dawn Journal is an ongoing series of books designed to reflect the magical teachings and philosophy of the Hermetic Tradition. These books seriously explore the techniques used in ceremonial magic and include practical advice for the working magician. Many articles in the Journal series are written by various authors who have experience in western ceremonial magic; particularly the type of magic espoused by the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Some of the articles presented are not exclusively concerned with Golden Dawn magic, but which are none-the-less of interest to Hermetic students.
