From the author:
I would like to present my new book Tunnels of Set, which is the third and the final volume in my Qliphothic magic series. Together with the other two books, Qliphothic Meditations and Qliphothic Invocations & Evocations, it constitutes The Qliphothic Trilogy that covers the entire Dark Tree and lays down a coherent and applicable system of approaching the Qliphoth from the perspective of modern magic. Here we will take a glimpse at what is included in the book and how it is connected with the previous two volumes.
This book has been on my mind ever since I started writing about the Dark Tree and the magic of the Qliphoth. In Qliphothic Meditations and Qliphothic Invocations & Evocations I covered methods and techniques to work with the eleven Qliphothic realms and their demon rulers, but these two seem incomplete without including the pathways connecting the particular spheres. The labyrinths of tunnels and paths existing in between the particular realms on the Dark Tree are as important in the self-initiatory process as are the realms themselves. In this book, which is the third in the series and the last on the subject, I have included all that missing information. This makes the presentation of my working system complete and this also concludes my writings on Qliphothic magic.
Like the two previous volumes, the ritual system provided in this book is based on the work of the Temple of Ascending Flame combined with my personal explorations of the Dark Tree. In 2019 the temple conducted a project that was a continuation and extension of the Tree of Qliphoth workings from the previous years. As a basis for the project we used the imagery, sigils, and other observations reported by the participants of the previous workings. We wanted to verify the previous experience and provide conditions for manifestation of these forces in the life of each practitioner. The new project contained 22 parts, each one with 6 days of workings, exploring each path on the Qliphothic Tree through sigil work, meditations, invocations, astral travel, and dream magic. This is also what you will find in Tunnels of Set. The results of these workings, together with the original rituals that were used in the project, are all included in the book.
If you’ve worked with my Qliphothic Meditations and Qliphothic Invocations & Evocations, you will find this volume to be a powerful extension and completion of the entire system. However, this is not a stand-alone work. If you want to work with the Qliphoth successfully, start with the first volume, successively expanding this work by invocations and evocations of the demon kings and queens of Sitra Ahra, and finally by exploration of the Tunnels of Set. This is how I work with this system myself, and this is what I recommend to those who feel drawn to this subject and are not sure where to begin. In the case of the Qliphoth, it is hard to say that anything can be risk-free in this process, but the system presented in all three volumes provides a fairly safe environment for a practitioner to explore the Dark Tree without getting lost in these realms.
Tunnels of Set is the name attributed to 22 paths connecting the realms on the Tree of Qliphoth, corresponding to pathways on the Tree of Life that connect the particular Sephiroth. The first mentions of the tunnels appear in Aleister Crowley’s Liber CCXXXI. On the basis of their sigils and descriptions, other authors and magicians have developed a map of dark pathways connecting Qliphothic realms with one another and intersecting like the threads in the Web of Fates. Among these authors we can mention Kenneth Grant, who described the tunnels in his Nightside of Eden, and Linda Falorio, who designed the tarot deck based on her explorations of the particular pathways. In my book I refer to the information provided by these authors as well, but the greater part of this work is based on my own explorations, both through the work of the Temple of Ascending Flame and through over 20 years of personal experience with the Tree of Qliphoth.
In Tunnels of Set you will find:
- Information about each tunnel and its guardian entity
- Magical profile of the guardians and their portraits for meditation
- Sigils received directly from these beings through my own travels and vision quests
- Pathworkings that will allow you to travel to these realms and interact with these beings in their own environment
- Correspondences between the tunnels and tarot cards and explanation on how you can combine working with both
- Methods of calling the forces of the tunnels for the purpose of self-initiation and self-empowerment
Like in my other books, I also explain possible results and consequences of performing these rituals and provide information on what you can expect from these rituals in your day-to-day life. The purpose of this book is to introduce the practitioner to the work that has not been explored in the two previous volumes but is necessary for the completion of the path and successful self-initiation through the Qliphothic Tree.
