Forthcoming: Holy Daimon
We are pleased to announce that our next title, Holy Daimon by Frater Acher, is scheduled for release this Summer. The result of more than ten years of practical and theoretical magical research, the book is in three parts: History, Memory and Practice, providing a well-grounded introduction, as well as a practical path to creating communion with one's holy daimon.
Rather than leaning on Abramelin or Crowley’s Liber Samekh, Frater Acher returns to the source, analysing the daimon as it was experienced in three cultures, Chaldean, Zoroastrian and Ancient Greek. These give a necessary overview to contextualise the material that follows, and restores the daimon to its central place in the journey of attainment.
Acher then gives a full account of his own personal communion with his holy daimon. As a magical record of a modern practitioner it is an important testimony for those embarking on the path, and a rare account given the secrecy within which most practitioners operate.
In the third and final section of the work Acher gives his streamlined exercises for attaining communion with the daimon; culminating in a fully restored final rite from the original Greek Magical Papyri. Whilst the author's focus is on enabling hands-on magical work, the book is not a traditional grimoire or 'grammar of magic', as the work is of deeply mystical nature.
