Overview

Mysteria Magica is the classic ritual text of training and development in the Western Mystery Tradition, appearing on countless suggested reading lists. Long out of print, this book has been hard to find and expensive when chanced upon.

A complete system of Magick, Mysteria Magica reveals essential and advanced teachings in terms that even newcomers can follow, with a richness of inspiration embraced by experienced mages. Mysteria Magica explores the core of Ceremonial Magick-the inner system of symbolism, philosophy, and spiritual technology. It shows how and why ritual acts can lead to their desired result in the "Principles of Ceremonial" section. This comprehensive work also presents a formal traditional education in the key elements of High Magick: sigils; telesmata; consecration; protection; and Enochian rituals and techniques, including proper pronunciation of the Enochian language. Designed for individual or group use, Mysteria Magica contains the most vital procedures of High Magick with authentic texts and formulae.

Meet the Author

Melita Denning and Osborne Phillips are internationally-recognized authorities on the mainstream Western Mysteries and are two of the foremost exponents of the Ogdoadic Tradition, that premier hermetic school whose keywords are knowledge and regeneration, and whose influence and works are historically traceable for the past one thousand years.

The authors received their major esoteric training in the magical order Aurum Solis, a society which was founded in 1897 and which has continued in active existence to the present day. On July 8, 1987, the authors, then heads of Aurum Solis, retired from the Order; but on June 23, 1988, at the unanimous request of the members, they resumed office.

In 1997, Melita Denning passed from this earth.
