Circles of Power

Circles of Power by Greer

by John Michael Greer

Circles of Power opens up exciting new territory for students of the Western Tradition. A definitive, contemporary guidebook to the Cabalistic magic of the Golden Dawn, Circles of Power takes you step by step through the basic building blocks of ritual to powerful, advanced techniques of energy work and personal transformation. More than just a "cookbook" of magical practice, Circles of Power reveals the core principles underlying each ritual. Clear, straightforward explanations and easy-to-follow guidelines illuminate the practical hows and whys of Western ritual magic.


"Where the beginning student is usually given no more than the Lesser Pentagram Ritual of the Golden Dawn in the average introductory text, Circles of Power takes the novice through such esoteric subjects as Evocation, invisibility rituals, and the celebration of the Equinox. Circles of Power provides a wonderful, ordered analysis of ritual work and offers new insights for even the more advanced ritual practitioner. If any writer is capable or reducing the most complex of all Golden Dawn magical correspondences for the beginner, my guess would be John Michael Greer."
David Allen Hulse, author of The Key of It All, Vol. 1 & II

"John Michael Greer has proven himself to be an author who understands the magical system of the Golden Dawn very well indeed. He is one of a new breed of authors who are taking Golden Dawn magic out of the Victorian age in which it was born and making it available to all for the new millennium."
Chic & Tabatha Cicero, authors of Secrets of a Golden Dawn Temple
