The Training and Work of an Initiate’ is a book for those seeking to understand the responsibilities and learning required of those starting out on the Path. The need for mental and physical discipline, meditation, and the many issues that must be faced to live life as an Adept, are all covered in great detail. Running parallel with this exposition of personal requirements is a fascinating history of the Western Mystical Tradition, and its relation to the many theories underlying esotericism, to which diverse assemblage Fortune gives the generic term ‘Illuminism’. The author attempts a classification of this many-branched tree, revealing the links between purificatory rites and blood sacrifice, selfless service and sex magic. Written by an acknowledged occult adept, ‘The Training and Work of an Initiate’ will prove invaluable to anyone interested in the history and methods of the esoteric disciplines.
