  • Author Dion Fortune

    Dion Fortune (born Violet Mary Firth, 1890–1946), founder of the Society of the Inner Light, is recognized as one of the most luminous ?gures of 20th-century esoteric thought. A proli?c writer, pioneer psychologist, powerful psychic, and spiritualist, she dedicated her life to the revival of the Western Mystery Tradition. She was also a member of the Order of the Golden Dawn, whose members included A. E. Waite, Aleister Crowley, and W. B. Yeats.

  • Introduction by Gareth Knight

When Dion Fortune wrote Aspects of Occultism, “occultism” was an umbrella word used to describe hidden lore, secret traditions, and arcane knowledge. Today, when the word “occult” is often confused for “cult,” and all its negative aspects, Fortune’s essays would be better referred to as “esoteric studies.” In this book she discusses evocative magic, the sites of Druid worship, parallels between Christianity and the Qabalah, the astral plane, auras, spiritual healing, power cycles, and our relationship with the Higher Self.

This revised edition includes a new introduction by Gareth Knight, an index, and an additional essay by Fortune”The Myth of the Round Table.” People familiar with Fortune’s work will love this book!
