Paths of Wisdom - Greer

by John Michael Greer

Acclaimed as an instant classic on its original publications and eagerly sought by students of magic ever since, Paths of Wisdom is a comprehensive introduction to the theory and practice of the magical Cabala, as practiced in the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and most other contemporary Western occult traditions. Engaging and accessible, yet packed with material found in few other books, it illumines the Cabalist underpinnings of today’s Hermetic magic as never before.

From the fundamentals of Cabalistic philosophy, through a detailed examination of the Spheres and Paths of the Tree of Life, to the magical disciplines that bring the symbolism to life as a potent toolkit for self-knowledge and esoteric attainment, Paths of Wisdom is your guide to the principles and practices of the magical Cabala.

Unlock the hidden potentials of the universe and yourself through the magical Cabala. Explore the essential theory and practice of Cabalistic magic from a modern perspective. Paths of Wisdom goes beyond fragments of symbolism and correspondences to reveal the actual practices at the very heart of the teachings of the Golden Dawn.
