Jason Augustus Newcomb is a writer and artist who has worked with the powers of the mind and consciousnessaltering practices for many years. He lives in Los Angeles, but travels across the US giving lectures and workshops.

Lon Milo DuQuette has been involved with occult studies since the late 60s, and has become an acknowledged and widely recognized authority within the world of modern occultism. His previous publications include Magick of Thelema, The Tarot of Ceremonial Magick, Angels, Demons & Gods of the New Millennium, and the humorous, biographical My Life with the Spirits.

The New Hermetics is a powerful spiritual technology of the mind. It is a course of study and practice that teaches the science of illumination and the ability to alter reality. The ancient Egyptian form of Hermetic philosophy was that the mind shapes reality. The New Hermetics extends that philosophy the universe is a great mind or consciousness, and we are a part of that consciousness/ therefore by learning to control the mind, we learn to control our part of the universe. With updated versions of the ancient Rosicrucian brotherhood’s 10 levels of initiation, combined with ancient and modern mindexpanding techniques such as visualization and NLP (neurolinguistic programming), The New Hermetics progressively gives initiates power over their minds and world. Practicing these elements simultaneously makes it possible to undergo initiation into the mysteries of consciousness in a fraction of the time it was ever before possible. The course offered in the book lets practitioners master their minds in such a way that they will be able to achieve anything and everything they want in life, spiritually and physically.

The New Hermetics offers 10 levels of instruction to control the mind and control reality:

  1. Level 1The Initiate teaches mastery over behavior and visualization in the Ether.
