it has been shown that much of the work of Trithemius, Agrippa’s mentor and the progenitor of European ceremonial magick, was actually veiled cryptography, a brutal and embarrassing truth that much of the occult and neopagan revival, which ultimately stems from Trithemius, has never assessed.
Enochian Vision Magick: An Introduction and Practical Guide to the Magick of Dr. John Dee and Edward Kelley by Lon Milo DuQuette, with foreword by Clay Holden (of the John Dee Publication Project at the library), the 2008 paperback from Weiser Books, is part of the collection at the Reading Room.
“Dr. John Dee (1527–1608) was one of the greatest minds of the Elizabethan Age, and his system of angelic communication was the result of the most dramatic magical operation ever recorded. It has survived to become the cornerstone of the modern ceremonial magician’s practice. In 1582 Dee and his clairvoyant partner Edward Kelley made magical contact with a number of spiritual entities who identified themselves as angels — the same that communicated with Adam, Enoch, and the patriarchs of the Old Testament. Over the next three years they revealed to Dee and Kelley three distinct magical systems of vision magick. The third and last of these incorporated a series of ‘calls’ to be recited in an angelic language in order to raise the consciousness of the magician to a level where angelic contact is possible. Best-selling author and magician, Lon Milo DuQuette, who has practiced Dee’s system for over twenty-five years, has seized upon elements of the original Dee material overlooked by adepts of the Golden Dawn, Aleister Crowley, and other modern magicians, and brought them to light in Enochian Vision Magick. DuQuette offers the expert and novice alike the practical means by which they can become attuned in the same simple step-by-step manner that first prepared Dee and Kelley. There has never been a book on Enochian magick like this one.” [via]

Would you like to explore your own “previous lives”?
The altered state of consciousness induced by techniques of Enochian Magick may hold the answer. And this coming Halloween (the traditional Celtic Day of the Dead) you can join Lon Milo DuQuette and magicians from around the world in an historic magical group working intended to help you explore and envision what may be events from your previous lives.

You may be interested in Enochian Magick – Online Group Working and Scrying Session with Lon Milo DuQuette offered through Thelesis Aura on Sat, Jul 28 at 12pm PDT but you can participate from anywhere in the world that has access to the Internet.
“Enochian Magick has long been considered the ‘deep end of the pool’ of the occult arts. Ever since John Dee and Kelley began their workings with these angelic beings centuries ago, no other branch of magick has been treated with as much fear and wonder. Performing an Enochian working is, by definition, a process by which beings from another world are contacted and communed with.
For more than 35 years, acclaimed occultist Lon Milo DuQuette has worked with this controversial system of magick. His book ‘Enochian Vision Magick’ is considered the best of its kind, and the public workings he’s done around the world have been called life-changing by those who’ve been privileged to attend.
In an historic, first-time experiment, Lon will be conducting an Enochian live magick workshop followed by an actual group scrying session over the Internet. Anyone, anywhere in the world with a good Internet connection and computer will be able to participate in this global experiment in consciousness.
To our knowledge this has never before been attempted.”
