To say Christopher S. Hyatt, Ph.D. will not ever have mass appeal is an understatement. If anything, the masses detest him.. And rightfully so. His radical approach to self-transformation doesn t come sugarcoated or gift wrapped. Rather, Dr. Hyatt exposes every hypocrisy and forces his readers to face themselves as they are--not as they wish to be. in the world of Dr. Hyatt we formulate our ideas of ourselves and the world around us based on accumulated lies (aka traditions) taught to us since childhood. As a result, each person comes to believe in a fictitious I solely based on the liars in our lives regurgitating their lies onto us. We are all handicapped by our traditions and conclusions, according to Dr. Hyatt. Heroically, and luckily for many of us, he does offer a way out.
For several years the High Priest of the Temple of Set, unveils some of his own personal inner teachings originally shared with Initiates of the Temple. From the contents of this book all persons who are serious about their own initiatory self-transformation will learn things of deep value which can be put into practice for purposes of self development, regardless of the path they are on. The Temple of Set is the leading philosophical branch of the Left-Hand Path Initiation openly operating in the world today. This book makes some of the inner teachings of the Temple available to the general public for the first time. Don Webb was for some years, before his retirement, the High Priest of the Temple of Set.
In the past 31 years, there has been a lot of ink--actual and virtual--spilled on the subject of the Necronomicon. Some have derided it as a clumsy hoax; others have praised it as a powerful grimoire. As the decades have passed, more information has come to light both on the book's origins and discovery, and on the information contained within its pages.
Paperback with minor shelf wear to covers/edges but is clean and unread.

The magic of the Necronomicon is based on dreams, visions and transmissions from planes and dimensions beyond the world as we know it, channeled and earthed by sensitive individuals. The power of this mythical tome lies in its intangibility and mysteriousness - it is a book with limitless potential, a volume that has never been completed and is continuously writing itself through the hands of those who receive its gnosis. "Necronomicon Gnosis: A Practical Introduction" thoroughly explores this magical tradition, discussing the lore of the Cthulhu Mythos from the perspective of a practitioner, providing applicable methods of work, both for beginners and advanced magicians. It presents basic magical concepts and techniques of their practical use within the context of the Necronomicon Gnosis: pacts and ceremonies, astral journeys, dream magic, scrying and travelling through gateways to interstellar dimensions, evocations, invocations, sex magic, self-initiation, shape-shifting, necromancy, the art of sacrifice, and many others. These techniques allow for a shift of consciousness in which we are able to experience the energies of the Great Old Ones that are normally inaccessible to our mundane perception. These primal beings, ever-changing and mutable, represent the evolutionary potential of the human mind - what we may become if we manage to transgress the limitations of human nature. First published in 2007, the original version of the book has been revised, expanded and updated. New chapters were added, containing texts and rituals previously published in various journals and magazines, as well as completely new, unpublished essays and practices.
This chapbook, written by S. Connoly, is a companion ritual and invocation book to Honoring Death: The Arte of Daemonolatry Necromancy. It also serves as a supplement to Keys of Ocat: A Grimoire of Daemonolatry Nygromancye and completes the Daemonolatry triad of necromantic texts. All three books are currently being used for Funerary Priest Seminary Training within TTS.
Necronomicon-- a mere glance at its pages sends its readers shrieking into the night, their soul seared for all eternity! At least that's what people want you to believe. Thank goodness authors Daniel Harms and John Wisdom Gonce III set the record straight in this scholarly yet accessible history of the dreaded tome.
The mighty powers invoked by this eldritch tome are really long-forgotten psychic abilities, able to affect the most basic needs and desires, including Love, Wealth, Peace of Mind, and Protection Agains Enemies. But now comes a guide that enables anyone to pick up the book and use its ineluctable power "without fear or risk" according to editor Simon.

The main body of work by New Isis Lodge extended from the years 1955 to 1962, and it was on his experiences within this Lodge, that Kenneth Grant was later to publish his the nine volumes which has come to be known collectively as the Typhonian Trilogies. Including several O.T.O. members from Crowley’s day, an insight into some of their methods is given in Hecate’s Fountain (Starfire Publishing, London, 2014).
