Weiser Books/Red Wheel, San Francisco, California, USA, 2007. Hardcover. 1184 pages. Brand New.
A unique resource for students of occultism, mysticism, Thelema, and magick that draws on Aleister Crowley’s writings as published in the periodical the Equinox.
In the original ten volumes of the Equinox, Alesiter Crowley succeeded in synthesizing the aim of religion and the method of science. The Equinox was a periodical first published in 1909, mainly featured articles about occultism and magick, while several issues also contained poetry, fiction, plays, artwork, and biographies.
Israel Regardie’s selections from those ten original volumes are presented here in Gems of the Equinox. The book serves as a veritable textbook for the magickal orders A.A. and O.T.O. It includes material on Crowley’s magical order, magical rituals, yoga, invocations, and sex magick, among many other topics. Although it is written for the advanced practitioner, beginners will gain much from its many pages of wisdom, including yoga postures and breathing techniques, ceremonial rituals and meditations, an Enochian magick primer, and The Book of the Law.
