Recomendations for Books on Ritual Magik
    #1061337 - 11/18/02 02:03 AM (14 years, 24 days ago)

I'm wanting to find some good books for someone new to Ritual Magik and the occult in general. Anyone want to recomend a good place to start? Or maybe suggest an author?

Richard Alan Miller, The Ritualistic Use of Herbs and Sex in Magic. or something similar. Look it up at amazon.com

Beltane Books, 1978?

May be new revised edition since the first had many errors and misinformation, especially an alleged mazatec Sexual Ritual Ceremony.

Something the Mazatec Indians refrain from three days before and after a ceremony.

check out Modern Magick by Donald Michael Kraig. it's an excellent book for beginners. It covers so many different traditions and practices, like solomonic magic(goetia), enochiana, wicca, thelema, sex magick, astral projection, and ,of course the mother of them all, the kaballah. it guides you step by step through all the processes. don't get me wrong. it's not a magic for dummies book or anything. it takes a lot of time and effort, but it's extremely helpful if you're willing to work at it.

some very solid reading comes from the pens of dion fortune, gareth knight and paul foster case. i rate these three as among the best and most reliable writers of the last century. especially gareth knight for ritual work.
just do a search for any of those names and you'll find more info.

The Satanic Bible by Anton Szandor LaVey is a good start. It focuses a lot on the theories behind ritual magic. It's nice too becuase it doesn't focus on arbitrary objects and symbols that don't mean anything to most people.

i haven't read this book closely, just a quick read a long time ago.
its unusual to hear anything positive about anton.(especially unusual to hear the satanic bible described as 'nice' :wink:). most people, beyond tabloid newspaper hacks, don't take him seriously.

"Psychonaut & Liber Null" by Peter J. Carrol. Very good book on Chaos Magick. I reccomend it.

A Self Made by Magic by William Gorden Gray
Magic:Its Ritual, Power and Purpose by W. E. Butler
The Golden Dawn by Isreal Regardie
For myself I'd stick to the cartoon versions like David St. Clair's Lessons in Instant
ESP.
