Review by Lee Prosser - firstname.lastname@example.org
High Magick is about power. Knowledge is power. Covered in this carefully research nonfiction work are such topics as Chaos magick, money magick, cyber magick, ritual magick, visualization, sigil magick, planetary magick, and trance work.
The author is founder of Pragmatic Magick and Ice Magic, and lives in Belgium. He has more than twenty-five books published. He translated Aleister Crowley's Book of Lies.
High magick is also called ceremonial or ritual magick and incorporates many items of occult knowledge from different sources. This vast amount of knowledge has been practiced and successfully utilized by the Freemasons, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, and Ordo Templi Orientis.
In addition to the lesser banishing ritual of the pentagram, practical sigil magick is also discussed. Other topics include elemental magick, planetary magic, mantra meditation, money magick, among others. Chaos magick and cyber magick are discussed with a sharing of keen insights from the author.
This is a book which will have special appeal to those interested in a hands-on approach to magick, how to apply it and how to make it work. The curious reader will find much information here, and an abundance of accurate data. Well-written, and an excellent reading experience.
