Inside Solar Lodge - Outside the Law: True Tales of Initiation and High Adventure (Out of Print)
by Shiva, Frater
Publisher: Teitan Press, Inc.
Binding: Hardcover with dust jacket
Book ID: A6741, A6741
The Teitan Press, 2007. First Edition.
Hardcover. 8vo. 200 pages. Mustard-color cloth with
black titling to spine, printed on library-quality paper, with an 8 page
black and white photographic insert and an index. Edition Limited to 418
copies. Color dust jacket design by Gavin O'Keefe. Solar Lodge is arguably
one of the most interesting and controversial of the many occult groups that
sprung up in 1960s America. It was founded by a student of one of the
original initiates of Agape Lodge of the O.T.O. and taught a system of
magick closely based on that of Aleister Crowley. The author, Frater Shiva,
joined Solar Lodge at its inception and rose to a senior position in its
ranks before finally leaving at the time of its implosion in 1972. 'Inside
Solar Lodge - Outside the Law' is his reminiscence of life within that
group: who they were, how they came together, and what they did and why. As
such it gives a rare glimpse into the lives, aspirations and practices of
this group of twentieth century magicians, viewed not through the eyes of an
historian or sociologist, but from one who was there and a part of it. It
also offers a detailed 'insider' account of the theft of the library of
O.T.O. leader Karl Germer, the 'boy in the box' incident, and the alleged
connection between the Solar Lodge and the Manson group: all events that
have become part of the folklore of American occultism.

Employing the latest research and discoveries, including previously unpublished reminiscences of the real man, Tobias Churton investigates the truth beneath th...
Grimoire of the Baron Citadel: The Book of the Four Ways.
Three Hands Press
As the governor of the Dead and the burial ground, the Baron Samedi is one of the most distinctive and potent loa of Haitian Vodou. An imposing figure in black raiment, he is most often pictured as a corpse. His other magical domains, less discussed in esoteric literature, include disruption, obscenity and -- importantly for the practicing sorcerer -- not only the arts of Magic but the very fabric of which it is made.
Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...
Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions
"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us.
He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a
first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company
we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with
that all-important business contact."
