The Heretic’s Guide to Thelema is a trilogy by Gerald Del Campo, which includes the classic New Aeon Magick and the controversial New Aeon English Qabalah. In this edition, we have also included the never before published The Ethics of Thelema!

In New Aeon Magick, Gerald explains his reasons for having chosen Thelema as a magical/philosophical path for guiding his life to the discovery of his true will. Since it was first published, New Aeon Magick has become the foundation of Thelemic philosophical exploration. In addition to a study of mythology to illustrate the function of the Qabalah, exercises are included to help the reader turn theory into practice.

In New Aeon English Qabalah, Gerald demonstrates a highly controversial and experimental method of studying and decoding holy books written in the English language. This method applies the practice of Gematria as well as illustrating how to use the system to develop personal magical squares and sigils for the purposes of invocation or evocation.

In The Ethics of Thelema, the author shares his intimate view of his relationship to the world and his fellow person, as informed by his personal experience with Thelema. In this book, he covers such topics as love, government, religion, consumerism, and charity, all of which have been informed by his understanding of Thelemic doctrine.

The Heretic’s Guide to Thelema provides a fresh, alternative perspective of Thelema and its evolution as a magical and philosophical system.

"Whether or not you consider yourself a Thelemite, practitioners of traditions, orders, covens, groves, solitudes, etc. anyone can benefit from Gerald’s profound, penetrating and practical wisdom. He writes with an entertaining sanity, clarifying mysteries with a greater mystery, promoting personal evolution and deeper comprehension of the High Art. It pays to have a trustworthy adviser in and beyond the halls of Chapel Perilous."
--Nema, author of Maat Magick: A Guide to Self-Initiation and The Way of Mystery: Magick, Mysticism & Self-Transcendence

"Gerald del Campo is a Scientific Illuminist of the first order, not afraid to take the inexact science of magick to the cutting edge of the experimental, while keeping his feet solidly on the ground. Gerald knows how to explain the basics of the magical path and the magical life to the general reader. He knows and understands the controversial but exceedingly important New Aeon English Qabalah, and gives a working explanation that intelligent seeker can apply to arrive at their own Work. He is also not afraid to take on the ethical dimension of the Great Work, something much neglected from the death of Rudolf Steiner until Gerald took up the cause. This is a significant read."
--T Allen Greenfield, author of True Quest for the Holy Grail: The Western Sex Magick Tradition

Another key element of its ritual, the elaborate Seal of God, has been found in texts and amulets throughout Europe.

Interest in The Sworn Book of Honorius has grown in recent years, yet no modern translations have been attemptedunt...
