PRAISE FOR THIS BOOK

“When we talk about the Golden Dawn and its magick, we are quite often referring to the various Knowledge Lectures and Flying Rolls that form the backbone of the Tradition's philosophy. We speak of Pentagram and Hexagram Rituals, various Outer Hall arrangements and their officers, the Grade Rituals and their visible and invisible godforms, etc, etc. And while I in no way mean to diminish the importance of this material, I feel it is safe to say we've seen it all before. It's been published, republished, analyzed, re-written, discussed, debated, and then published again for the last one hundred and thirty years (give or take). However, in The Light Extended: A Journal of the Golden Dawn, Vol. 2, we are given the opportunity to explore some more obscure pathways through the Western Hermetic Mysteries; to dive down some rabbit holes we (perhaps) haven't recognized before. That, after all, is what a journal such as this should do!

Yes, there are some common Golden Dawn sites to visit herein: discussions of the four elements and their implements, psychology and magick, the making of simple tools and furnishings for your own home, and even astrology as introduced in the Neophyte Knowledge Lecture. But you will also find in this volume many side-roads to attractions that only the locals know about, because they aren't listed in the tourist brochures. Here are little-known rituals, explorations of obscure symbols, uncommon astrological tidbits, Greek Gods, and even the ancient Jewish Work of the Chariot (Merkavah). So, if you are looking for something a bit different, a bit deeper, a bit more unusual than the standard Golden Dawn fare, this is certainly one safari worth the price of your ticket.”

— Aaron Leitch,

author of Secrets of the Magickal Grimoires

“The Light Extended is a scholarly research journal of the Occult Sciences and, in particular, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Frater Yechidah, the editor of this journal, has a high standard and nonpartisan approach to the occult research and ceremonial ritualistic dramæ of the Western Mystery Tradition and the Golden Dawn. Within the hallowed chamber of this esoteric journal, we find well known authors and researchers from the various Golden Dawn communities working for a common good. A place to come and learn in a peaceful space. I enjoyed reading this issue and the narrative that is reflected upon these pages. Read, Think, and Expand.”
