The true structure of the most sacred name of God is the great arcanum
of occultism-never before explicitly revealed but only hinted at in obscure religious and alchemical emblems. It is now laid bare in "The Power of the Word."
Renowned occultist Donald Tyson clearly shows how IHVH, the four Hebrew letters in the lost name of God, hold the key that unlocks the meaning behind astrological symbolism, the Tarot, the kabbalah, the mysteries of the Old Testament and the Book of Revelation, divinatory systems such as the I Ching and medieval geomancy, the Enochian magic of John Dee, and modern ritual magic. The holiest name of God is nothing less than the archetypal blueprint of creation, the basis for such fundamental forms as the DNA double helix and the binary language of modern computers.
This groundbreaking work is the most complete magical reference guide to the secret code of creation ever presented.

Alchemy is the ancient sacred science concerned with the mysteries of life and consciousness as reflected through all of nature. It is a harmonious blending of physical and subtle forces that lifts the subject, whether it be man or metal, to a more evolved state of being. The Way of the Crucible is a ground-breaking modern manual on the art of alchemy that draws on both modern scientific technology and ancient methods.
Herbs have been used for medicine, magic, and ritual for centuries. The ancient arts of Herbal Alchemy and Herbal Magick combine an understanding of the healing and energizing effects of herbs (roots, leaves, flowers, resins and essential oils) with an understanding of the cycles of the natural world—the astrological movement of the stars and planets, and the cycles of the earth’s seasons.
