The essays in this book originally appeared as articles in the Inner Light Journal, the house journal of Dion Fortune’s Society of the Inner Light, between 2002 and 2005 and include two lectures originally given at the Temenos Academy. Full of wisdom and insights gained through a lifetime’s work in the Western Esoteric Tradition, topics covered include the role of psychism within the occult tradition, working with the Elemental Tides, the medieval grail texts of Chrétien de Troyes which predate Malory, pathworking the Qabalistic Tree of Life and the magical symbolism of the rose. Many of the articles have a common theme relating to the life and work of Dion Fortune and her trailblazing esoteric path, the results of which are still bearing fruit today.
Gareth Knight is one of the world’s foremost authorities on ritual magic, the Western Mystery Tradition and Qabalistic symbolism. He trained in Dion Fortune’s Society of the Inner Light, and has spent a lifetime rediscovering and teaching the principles of magic as a spiritual discipline and method of self-realisation. He has written around fifty books covering topics as diverse as Qabalah, history of magic, Arthurian legend, Rosicrucianism, Tarot, Faery, the Inklings (Tolkien, C.S.Lewis et al) and the Feminine Mysteries, as well as several practical books on ritual magic. The Gareth Knight Group, a magical fraternity which he founded in 1973, is now run by his daughter Rebsie. He has lectured worldwide and contributed extensively to Inner Light, the journal of the Society of the Inner Light, and Lyra, the Gareth Knight Group journal.
