This set of files forms a complete introduction to
ceremonial magick. This is the latest version of material
which originally appeared as a printed correspondence course
from the 'College of Egyptian Mysteries'. I began writing
this material in 1974 and have been releasing revisions of
it ever since. It was first placed on my bulletin board
in electronic form in July 1986, where it has remained
until recently when I discovered that a commercial board
had it online despite specific restrictions against this.
Also, the commercial board had placed their own copyright
on the material and was attempting to claim ownership.
As a result I have 'pulled' the old files from all authorized
boards and am revising and re-issuing them in the present
form. This new release also contains a rather emphatic
copyright notice for this reason. I have never attempted to
make money off of this course material, nor from anything
I have ever done in the occult. My intention with this
material has always been to distribute it freely.
The course starts at the beginner's level and
progresses gradually toward more advanced concepts which
include meditation, chakras, the Cabala and basic ritual.
Even if you have little interest in the subject here, you
may find the first 'lesson' which discusses parapsychology
to be worthwhile. I should point out that the material is
often revised, and that I will probably be adding additional
articles in this series from time to time.
