Description

This is not another beginner book on Magick that so many large publishing companies tend to print. This book was designed for the intermediate and advanced practitioner of the Order of the Golden Dawn. Pat Zalewski was fortunate enough to work with original members of the Stella Matutina and was taught the inner secrets of the Adepts. Now for the first time, these secrets are being published so that those who could benefit from this knowledge will learn as Zalewski had done with his mentor, Jack Taylor. Also being released for the first time is the connection between the Admission Badges and the Temple floor diagrams. Zalewski also discusses in-depth the God-form assumption technique he learned. Many significant lessons are contained in this book that you will not get from any other source.

In my opinion, this book is the most significant contribution to the Golden Dawn community since the Aries Press publication of Israel Regardie's The Golden Dawn. For many you, Pat requires no introduction as his Work has firmly established him as the living representative of the Stella Matutina Tradition in general and Whare Ra in particular. After years of running his own Golden Dawn Temple and initiating members from 0=0 to 5=6, Pat was introduced to Jack Taylor, 7=4, Whare Ra, whom became a Chief along with Pat and his wife in a fully functioning Golden Dawn Order. Jack Taylor and other Whare Ra Adepts rigorously trained Pat in the First Order Rituals as well as in the higher grades of the Order and Pat was consequently initiated into the 6=5 and 7=4 grades by Jack with his oaths reworded so that he could freely give what he received without any restriction of any kind. During this period of intensive training, Pat took copious notes writing down for the first time the Oral Tradition of Whare Ra. Ritual was the area in which Whare Ra particularly excelled and consequently this book represents the finest, most complete treatment of the Golden Dawn Rituals with Commentaries published to date. It is very fortunate for all of us in the Golden Dawn community that Pat was there at the right place and right time with the appropriate background that enabled him to capture the significant contents of this book. Despite unfounded criticism of the privately printed edition of this book, Pat very clearly designates what was received from Jack Taylor and other Whare Ra Adepts from his own interpretations and expansions. In my opinion, it would be difficult for anyone to mistake Pat's work from that of others as he meticulously gives reference to every idea cited. In the tradition of the Z.1 and Z.3, this book contains the Z.4 which is the Inner Order aspect of the four Elemental Rituals, and the Z.5, which is the Inner Order aspect of the Portal and Adeptus Minor Rituals. Before this work, no such interpretation existed for any of the Golden Dawn Rituals above the Neophyte grade. Although the contents of this book are rather dated and primitive from what Pat is teaching today in his Inner Order, they do provide a general direction and valuable content that can be used very effectively as part of a Golden Dawn Inner Order curriculum. It is mainly for this reason that Pat has decided to make this material more widely available via this publication of the revised edition of his earlier work. As many Golden Dawn Orders today stop where Regardie ended or in some instances bring in the material of other Orders, Pat's Work demonstrates that there is still a significant expansion possible within the Golden Dawn Tradition itself. One of the more insightful keys is the idea that Admission Badges, layered on the Temple Floor, are an integral aspect of not only the "form" of the Ritual itself but of the energy dynamics as well. Among many other treasures, here for the first time are published the various God forms of the Elemental Grade Rituals (prior to this only the Neophyte God forms have been published as part of the Z.3 document) and various other vital aspects of the Golden Dawn system. This book contains many detailed diagrams not found in any other Golden Dawn Ritual book - many of them are simply amazing. This is a "must have" landmark treatise that every student of the Golden Dawn will want to have.show more
