Israel Regardie (1907-1985) was an Adept of the Golden Dawn and he was one of the greatest exponents of the Western Esoteric Tradition of the 20th century. He was also an initiate of Aleister Crowley's Order of the A.·. A.·., and he was a IXth degree initiate of Crowley's O.T.O. It was his aim to preserve the teachings and work of the Golden Dawn and Aleister Crowley. His success in this task has profoundly influenced occult thought. From the age of 21, Regardie worked as Crowley's personal secretary. During this period, until their bitter parting, Regardie was one of the few who knew Crowley well. He was one of the few who were qualified to provide first-hand, personal insight into the character and personality of one of the major figures in Western Magick. In addition to his extensive writings, Regardie practiced as a chiropractor and as a neo-Reichian therapist. He taught Psychiatry at the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic and contributed articles to many Psychology magazines. Regardie's most profound work, The Complete Golden Dawn System of Magic, is a 1200 page book published by New Falcon Publications; a company he founded with his student Dr. Christopher Hyatt. The book is currently available in three different editions: a) 1200 page hard bound with index; b) eBook with the same material; and c) a new portable edition as a soft cover. Today Regardie's work is being preserved and perpetuated by New Falcon Publications and the Israel Regardie Foundation.
This is an important and timeless work for a variety of reasons, and New Falcon Press is proud to state that it should fufill an important need. First, it attempts to reduce methodically all metaphysical systems-including Unity and New thought in all phases- to historical developments emerging from Christian Science. Secondly, its interpretation is along psychoanalytical lines. The author and publisher believe this book should answer many questions raised regarding the relationship of metaphysics and modern psychological science. The author provides a comprehensive survey of the entire field by exegesis on its own metaphysical level and provides analytical insight into the mental structure of the founders. This is provided with sound scholarship, good judgement and sympathetic insight. No other author could cope adequately with this subject in the wide, synthetic and challenging manner evinced by the author in this amazing book. It is a book to be read from cover to cover, put on one's bookshelf as part of the permanent collection, and re-read from time to time.
