Sexuality has long been one of the key themes behind magick and this book by Katon Shual explores some of western magick’s secrets of sexual gnostics. Often misunderstood, this fascinating system remains as thought provoking now as it was when the book was first published in 1988 and it’s a must for anyone with a passion for all things magic.
Starting with a peek behind the revival of sexual magick during the early 20th century, the book examines its presence in the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn as well as some of the later magical groups such as Aleister Crowley’s Thelemic cult.
Follow the progression of sexual magick to the fusion between western Hermetic and eastern Tantrik sexual Gnosticism. This book is unique in its inclusion of a previously unpublished grimoire of sexual magick as well as a host of other sources. Meet the ancient deity Seth, an archetype of the sexual magician and understand the chakra system through a simple explanation.
Phil Hine from Talking Stick summarised that Secrets of Sexual Gnosis in Western Magick ‘makes the subject of sexual magick accessible and lucid and above all relevant to contemporary magical practice’.
