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.

After becoming the fastest selling Fall of Man Press title, Myrkþursablót: Nightside of The Old Norse Mythology is receiving a second extended and revised edition. With over 6,000 new words, as well as many new bindrunes and images (including new Serpent Soul Art work!), this new edition deepens into the mysteries of the Old Norse religion, and the duality contained in all of us that leads us to the Ginnungagap.
As a special feature to the second printing of Myrkþursablót: Nightside of The Old Norse Mythology, a download will be provided to obtain a newly composed soundtrack to accompany the text provided within the book. Spanning an hour long, this ambient piece, composed by author and musician Niðafjöll, will provide an atmosphere to further guide the reader into the world of Myrkþursablót as the energies within the text become more present.
Known by many names, the nightside of the Norse-Germanic spiritual path is a self-directed journey towards initiation into the secrets as embodied by the runes, transiting towards the harmonious silence of the void before creation was formed through the collision of fire and ice (the union of opposites to create the moving universe we as living creatures experience). In initiatory and devoted practice revering forces such as the þursar, the student seeks to initiate his or herself into the black arts of northern antiquity and meld into the eternal silence of Ginnungagap, shaking the chains of existence within the nine worlds. There are many parallels one could draw from other Left-Hand Path traditions to this one, such as the karmic cycle in the Puranic tradition. This system is designed to be an initiatory path using the rune rows and the shamanic gateways they represent, so that one may make a personal exit from this universe ruled by the poles of duality.
Myrkþursablót, or Dark Þursian Worship, is a look into the primordial gateway to learn its ethereal secrets of fire and ice in order to unchain one’s spirit from the restraints of the mortal world. A journey through the untamed wilderness of darkness as one wades through treacherous tests of inner conflict, as the spirit fights to unleash itself from the prison of flesh, and ascend into the true light to obtain the secrets of the runes from the oldest beings. The keepers of all hidden wisdom, knowledge, secrets and magic. The Þurs.
The dark tradition of Norse spirituality does not place acknowledgment on the Æsir as keepers of the truth, but instead on the Þursar, the oldest beings. It is through them that the hidden secrets of the runes and the ancient wisdom is obtained. They are not to be seen as gods, but as teachers the adept wishes to commune with in order to garner knowledge for their own use. They are the sons and daughters of Aurgelmir, who was born from the infinite void before time was time.
Throughout the pages of Myrkþursablót: Nightside of The Old Norse Mythology the authors introduce us to the dark world of the Þurs, analyzing their attributes and characteristics so that the reader may benefit from a deeper understanding of these primordial forces. It is through this understanding that the reader may make proper use of the runes and sigils presented and described in this book, with the ultimate goal of reaching true illumination.

“Gullveig is the Teutonic and Germanic highest feminine principle of darkness – the maid, the mother, and the crone: Gullveig’s traits are analogous to Lilith’s and Hecate’s. In the Old Norse Mythology she is the sinister arch- mother of the giants and the black arts; she’s also the divine feminine manifestation of the analogue thursian purpose.” The book is in effect a grimoire of Gullveig, drawing from old Norse Mythology and occult lore to establish a pathway of black magical practice.

From the Publisher:
The Game of Saturn is the first full length, scholarly study of the enigmatic Renaissance masterwork known as the Sola-Busca tarot. It reveals the existence of a pagan liturgical and ritual tradition active amongst members of the Renaissance elite and encoded within the deck. Beneath its beautifully decorated surface, its imagery ranges from the obscure to the grotesque; we encounter scenes of homoeroticism, wounding, immolation and decapitation redolent of hidden meanings, violent transformations and obscure rites. For the first time in over five hundred years, the clues embedded within the cards reveal a dark Gnostic grimoire replete with pagan theurgical and astral magical rites. Careful analysis demonstrates that the presiding deity of this ‘cult object’ is none other than the Gnostic demiurge in its most archaic and violent form: the Afro-Levantine serpent-dragon, Ba’al Hammon, also known as Kronos and Saturn, though more notoriously as the biblical Moloch, the devourer of children. Conveyed from Constantinople to Italy in the dying years of the Byzantine Empire, the pagan Platonist George Gemistos Plethon sought to ensure the survival of the living essence of Neoplatonic theurgy by transplanting it to the elite families of the Italian Renaissance. Within that violent and sorcerous milieu, Plethon’s vision of a theurgically enlightened elite mutated into its dark shadow – a Saturnian brotherhood, operating within a cosmology of predation, which sought to channel the draconian current to preserve elite wealth, power and control. This development marks the birth of an ‘illumined elite’ over three centuries before Adam Weishaupt’s ‘Illuminati.’ The deck captures the essence of this magical tradition and constitutes a Western terma whose talismanic properties may serve to establish an initiatory link with the current. This work fully explores the historical context for the deck’s creation against the background of tense Ferrarese-Venetian diplomatic intrigue and espionage. The recovery of the deck’s encoded narratives constitutes a significant contribution to Renaissance scholarship, art history, tarot studies and the history of Western esotericism.

The Book of Sitra Achra is the first complete and completely Qliphothic Grimoire, providing the foundation for a Spiritual and Transcendental Initiatic approach towards the Other Side. Within the system and Tradition presented inside this book the very essential core of the Current 218 is for the first time ever made public, dispelling both the smoke screens and the misconceptions surrounding the Anti-Cosmic Tradition of Gnostic Satanism/Luciferianism, providing to those that hear and heed the Voiceless Call of Azerate the means for the entering and traversing of the Path of Black Fire, towards the Thrones of the Dragons of the Other Side.
The Tradition outlined in this Grimoire is in some of its aspects pertaining to the symbolism employed based on certain for us fundamental concepts derived from the Heresy of Sabbatai Zevi, as transmitted by the prophet Nathan of Gaza, such as the dichotomy between the Cosmic Light of Creation and the Anti-Cosmic Light of the Qliphothic Impulse. While this most important concept imbues the whole Work, the Tradition presented within this book takes the matter far deeper towards the Side of Qliphoth than what the ‘Sabbatian’ traditions ever had or would, until a Gnostic form of Anti-cosmic Satanism/ Luciferianism emerged perfectly suited for the Embodiment of the Current 218, not with the goal of separation and isolation from the True Divinity, like what most other forms of the so called “satanic” or “Left Hand Path” traditions seem to advocate and strive for, but instead setting as the highest goal to indeed merge and become as one with the Unbound Essence of Divinity in the Fullness of the Emptiness of Ain, beyond all limitations, illusions and finite duality.
The Book of Sitra Achra – A Grimoire of the Dragons of the Other Side provides in an unapologetic manner insight into one of the most maligned and vilified traditions, in order to shed the Light of Truth on the most controversial aspects of the Current 218 in order to both guide the sincere seekers of the Black Light and at the same time dispel those misguided and/or misguiding individuals who in a profane manner have or would approach the Anti-Cosmic Tradition for all the wrong reasons, mistaking it for all those things that it in actuality opposes and serves to eliminate.
The Qliphothic Path outlined in this Grimoire is not to be connected to any other system that has been made public so far and is in its approach and essence a totally unique form of Initiatic Ceremonial Magic, stretching from this to the Other Side, establishing the pathways and gates through which the adept may strive to become as one with the Eleven-Headed Ruler of the Tree of Wisdom, Unfated Death and Liberation from all cosmic limitation.
May the Spirits belonging to the Other Divinity find within this Grimoire
the Black Light that shall guide their steps through this world of White Darkness towards the Kelim-Shattering Illumination of the
Thoughtless Crown of the Dragon.

Daniel A. Schulke’s forthcoming work The Green Mysteries (Arcana Viridia), due to be released August 2017, is an occult herbal 25 years in the making. Meticulously illustrated with over 250 original images by renowned artist Benjamin Vierling, its primary rubric is that of an original occult pharmacopeia written from the perspective of a contemporary magical herbalist. As a whole the book emerges principally from the discipline of Occult Herbalism, which encompasses the knowledge and use of the magical, spiritual, and folkloric dimensions of plants.
As a foundational treatise introducing this work, Thirteen Pathways of Occult Herbalism speaks to its interior philosophical concerns. Circumscribing the metaparadigm of herbal magical practice, providing useful examples of its manifestation, as well as demonstrating its time-honored routes of inquiry, it examines the ways in which knowledge of this type is acquired and put into practice. This perennial wisdom animates many global spiritual traditions, especially those that have maintained their integrity of transmission even in the face of industrial development and cultural destruction.
Often concealed within the deepest strata of the Western Esoteric Traditions, this green strand of wisdom, though obscured, is a potent legacy of all magic, sorcery, and occult science. In addition to the hard sciences of botany, ethnology, agriculture and ethnopharmacology, a number of pathways can assist the magical herbalist in furthering the depth of understanding and integrity of personal approach.
