Initiation in the Aeon of the Child is the first publication of some of the oral instructions of the modern A...A..., the teaching order co-founded by Aleister Crowley. Gunther writes with clarity, authority and persuasive earnestness about recondite and difficult subjects. He employs copious illustrations to clarify his exposition. This is one of those rare books that rises, in some passages, to the level of transmitted doctrinal insight. It is clearly deserving of a place in the curricula of both A...A... and O.T.O., and it deserves to be welcomed and studied carefully by Thelemites of all persuasions.” –Hymenaeus Beta, Frater Superior, Ordo Templi Orientis

“J. Daniel Gunther provides a beautifully crafted description of the modern path of Initiation—the means by which Man becomes God. In my opinion, this is the most important original work to be published since the death of Aleister Crowley.” –James Wasserman, author of In the Center of the Fire
This book’s primary focus is an understanding of the change to the formulas of Initiation brought about by the advent of the New Aeon—the Aeon of the Child—in 1904. It draws deeply from Jungian psychology, world mythology and religion, the teachings of Aleister Crowley, and the doctrines of the Mystery traditions. It explains how the revelations unique to this stage of human evolution impact the work of the individual aspirant. Much of what is written here is revealed for the first time, with every attempt to do so in clear and precise language.
