Golden Dawn Enochian Magic

Golden Dawn Enochian Magic by Pat Zalewski

by Pat Zalewski

Thee Enochian system of magic was discovered during the Renaissance by the noted court astrologer John Dee and his somewhat mysterious assistant, Edward Kelly. Dee and Kelly used the age-old technique of skrying to reveal an elaborate and elegant system of angelic hierarchies, spiritual planes, and a self-contained Enochian alphabet. This is not only an antiquated system of philosophy worthy of study only by specialists, however. Using this information, contemporary practicing magicians can, as Dee and Kelly did, travel to new levels of consciousness and explore alternative realities.

Aleister Crowley's description of Enochian magic in an edition of The Equinox in 1912 re-introduced this complex and fascinating system to modern readers. Since then, many different explanations of the Enochian worlds have appeared. Golden Dawn Enochian Magic, based on the unpublished papers of various Golden Dawn associates, reveals the secrets of the Golden Dawn approach.

As a member of the Thoth-Hermes temple of New Zealand, Pat Zalewski has made his own exploration and compiled an excellent sourcebook of new information and valuable interpretation. Over 100 drawings, diagrams and tables are included to guide the reader through the Enochian mysteries, and important rituals associated with Enochian magic are presented in the book's appendices. A thorough and useful book on a difficult subject, Golden Dawn Enochian Magic will fascinate both scholars and serious students of magical exploration.

"Just as Dee's original manuscripts barely survived the Great Fire of London, the missing pieces of the Golden Dawn tradition were almost lost. Thanks to Pat Zalewski's patient scholarship, this important material has been restored to its rightful place in the history of magic. […] The publication of this book is a major milestone in the gradual unfolding of this branch of the Western magical tradition."
Geoffrey James, author of The Enochian Magick of Dr. John Dee
