This book is vital for anyone who claims to follow the Golden Dawn tradition. It reveals the depth of the teaching of the Rosae Rubeae et Aureae and Zalewski's instructions show how this may be practically used. Without this material, it is difficult to see how a modern Golden Dawn adept could claim the title. --Nick Farrell (Author of Gathering the Magic).
For more than 100 years secret magical manuscripts from the Order of the Golden Dawn's inner order of adepts Rosae Rubeae et Aureae have been unseen by most students of the esoteric. This includes the Golden Dawn Alchemical teachings, Secret Teachings of the Zelator Grade and the important Caduceus paper. These have either been gathering dust on some collector's shelves, or have been worked by those who have continued the Order's work. So secret were these documents, Israel Regardie was unaware of them and subsequently many of the modern Orders of the Hermetic Order of Golden Dawn, who were dependent on his encyclopaedic 'Golden Dawn' for their teaching, have left out much of this work. However, the papers contained in this book provide the much needed keys to understand the Golden Dawn system in its entirety. However, just as the Golden Dawn was not just intellectual information gathered under one heading but contained oral instruction to make the system come alive, so this material came with extensive traditions that make it useful to the student. For the first time, Golden Dawn authority Pat Zalewski, who was trained by the Inner Order adepts of the Golden Dawn, reveals the key to this material.
