PRAISE FOR THIS BOOK

“Western ceremonial magic has been shaped to a great extent by the teachings of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, founded in 1888. This is not opinion—it is a fact. And yet, some may assume that an esoteric fraternity established in Victorian England can’t possibly be relevant to today’s practitioners. For those who haven’t delved into the system with any depth ‘it’s all been written before, it’s all been done before.’ To the naysayers, our response is: Seriously? Are you kidding me?
 
Publications such as The Light Extended prove that the Golden Dawn is a never-ending source of new knowledge and inspiration for contemporary magicians. Above all else, the anthology displays just how energetic the system continues to be, providing readers with informative articles by some of the best magician/authors today’s Golden Dawn has to offer. Topics in Volume 3 include: instructions for tracing the invoking and banishing forms of signs and sigils; how a Golden Dawn temple has coped with pandemic lockdowns; rituals for evoking and assuming the godform of Nephthys; an in-depth look into the meditations of the elemental grades; an examination into the lesser-known areas of astrological study; a fascinating examination of numerous names, titles, and functions ascribed to the Archangel Metatron through Literal Qabalah; an unparalleled treatise on the history and practice of godform assumption; a valuable compilation of deities found within the Golden Dawn teachings; the Neophyte Ceremony of the Alpha et Omega; and a deep-dive into the tarot workings of the tradition.
 
As the Hiereus states in the Ceremony of the Neophyte: ‘Breath is the evidence of Life.’ The various articles in this issue of The Light Extended are proof of life—they are the rhythmic breathings of a vibrant, living tradition that has much to teach! With every issue, significant areas of our system’s knowledge, research, and practice are opened for students. This is essential reading for all Golden Dawn practitioners.”
