Holy Daimon is the result of more than ten years of ritual and theoretical magical research, the book is comprised of three parts: History, Memory and Practice, providing a well-grounded introduction, as well as a practical path to creating communion with one’s holy daimon.

Rather than drawing on Abramelin or Crowley’s Liber Samekh, Frater Acher returns to the source, analyzing the daimon as it was experienced in three cultures, Chaldean, Zoroastrian and Ancient Greek. These give a necessary overview to contextualise the material that follows, and restores the daimon to its central place in the journey of attainment.

Acher then gives a full account of his own personal communion with his holy daimon. As a magical record of a modern practitioner it is an important testimony for those embarking on the path, and a rare account given the secrecy within which most practitioners operate.

In the third and final section of the work Acher gives his streamlined exercises for attaining communion with the daimon; culminating in a fully restored rite from the Greek Magical Papyri.

Whilst the author’s focus is on enabling hands-on magical work, the book is not a traditional grimoire or ‘grammar of magic,’ as the work is of deeply mystical nature.

  1. A harrowing and intensely personal journey, Holy Daimon breaks down into three parts: History, Memory and Practice.

    Author Frater Acher begins by introducing the reader to the history of daemonic beliefs among the Chaldeans, the Zoroastrians and the Ancient Greeks. This leads to the heart of the book, a vivid retelling of Acher’s month-long Saturn Exerzitium as reprinted from his own magical diary. Here, laid bare, is his communication with Saturn in direct, honest and uncompromising language. A departure from the magical squares working of the Abramelin ritual, part three continues with praxis in obtaining and retaining systasis with your holy daimon with the aid of a ritual from the Greek Magical Papyri.

    The quality of this paperback from Scarlet Imprint’s Bibliothèque Rouge is of the highest grade and highlights the typesetting prowess of Alkistis Dimech while faithfully reproducing the atmospheric black-and-white photography (presumably the author’s own) to give the entire presentation a unique hybrid between cinematic and documentary/scholarly treatment. Highly recommended.
