Overview

Contains everything that beginners need to start their esoteric training.

The Magician's Workbook has a single purpose: to present a graded and integrated series of practical exercises designed to teach the essentials of ritual magic.

It contains no history or theory-just forty exercises that anyone can do without prior training, special tools, or costly materials. The content ranges from simple mental exercises to complete rituals that form templates for future work in Western magic.

These exercises do not merely teach-they transform. When practiced regularly, they cause changes in the body, brain, perceptions, emotions, and the will-changes necessary for the successful working of magic in any of its ancient or modern traditions.

A complete basic training manual for serious beginners who want to start performing ritual magic, rather than just reading about itPresents a progressive, forty-week schedule of daily study that fully integrates inner mental conditioning with external movements, gestures, and wordsEnables students to go on to study the Golden Dawn system in greater depth, or move forward with confidence to any other form of Western magic

Author Biography: Donald Tyson is a Canadian from Halifax, Nova Scotia. Early in life he was drawn to science by an intense fascination with astronomy, building a telescope by hand when he was eight. He began university seeking a science degree, but became disillusioned with the aridity and futility of a mechanistic view of the universe and shifted his major to English. After graduating with honors he has pursued a writing career.

Now he devotes his life to the attainment of a complete gnosis of the art of magic in theory and practice. His purpose is to formulate an accessible system of personal training composed of East and West, past and present, that will help the individual discover the reason for one's existence and a way to fulfill it.
