Helios Unbound: Pagan Theurgy to Connect to Your Higher Genius (Paperback)
The Western Mystery Tradition is based on a bedrock of pagan magic, yet too many important developments are over-influenced by post-pagan Judeo-Christian-Islamic dogma. One of these is the concentrated "storming of the gates of heaven" technique known as the Abramelin system, in which the magician attempts to contact a spirit called the Holy Guardian Angel after an intense six- or 18-month programme.
In Helios Unbound, Nick Farrell liberates the Western Mystery Tradition from its Christian past by adapting modern ceremonial magical techniques with pagan practices to provide a working system to contact a person's divine self. The Ancients called this divine self their Higher Genus, and Farrell sees this sprit as the key to understanding your spiritual and material destiny and working practical magic.
The book takes you through the practical information you need covering a wide range of magical subjects including Ceremonial Magic, Hellenistic Astrology, Astral Work, Meditation, Theurgy and Philosophy based on Ancient and Modern sources.
Magicians who do not see the need to follow the mainstream religions but wish to return to more ancient symbols will find many of the answers they are seeking in this book.
