The ceremonial magic of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn is among the most widely practiced of all magical systems today. Yet very few books on the Golden Dawn tradition pass beyond the basics into the more demanding and powerful magical practices the system has to offer. Circles of Power is the exception. It’s a comprehensive practical manual of Golden Dawn magic that proceeds step by step from basic principles and fundamental rituals to the heights and depths of magical attainment.

Circles of Power provides detailed instructions for such rarely discussed magical techniques as the creation of telesmatic images, the construction and use of flashing tablets, the Golden Dawn method of etheric shapeshifting, and the use of the Formula of the Equinox—one of the two fundamental ritual formulas of the Golden Dawn tradition—as a basis for rituals of evocation, consecration, spiritual development, and more. This new edition has been thoroughly revised by the author.

One of the most widely respected voices in contemporary occult studies, John Michael Greer is the award-winning author of more than 50 books, including The New Encyclopedia of the Occult, The Druidry Handbook, The Celtic Golden Dawn, and Circles of Power. He has also written four books on peak oil and the future of industrial society, including The Long Descent and The Ecotechnic Future. An initiate in Freemasonry, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, and the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids, Greer served as the Grand Archdruid of the Ancient Order of Druids in America (AODA) for 12 years. He lives in Cumberland, Maryland, with his wife Sara.
