  • 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.

Esoteric Orders and their Work examines how and why esoteric schools have restricted admission to their secret societies and orders, and shrouded their practices in mystery. The knowledge guarded by these schoolspassed down through the ages, and revised from time to time by great teachersis a secret traditional science that studies the causes that lie behind observable phenomena.

Dion Fortune reveals every aspect of these secret organizations and the training they offer to initiates.
