About Author

Israel Regardie (1907-1985) is a crucial figure in the development of modern occultism. At the age of 21 he travelled to Europe to work as Crowley’s secretary, a period he writes about in his perceptive and sympathetic biography of the Beast, The Eye in the Triangle. This work describes (and is written despite of) their dramatic falling out which culminated in Crowley writing anonymously to every one whom Regardie knew or might come into contact with alleging all manner of extreme personal faults, no doubt intended to be as hurtful as possible. Regardie’s commitment to magic and spiritual advancement continued unabated. He joined the Stella Matutina, a continuation of the Golden Dawn. As the operations of this group faltered Regardie came into possession of the Order’s papers, starting in 1937, published them so that the system would be preserved forever. Hand in hand with his magical activities Regardie explored Freudian, Jungian and Reichian psychoanalysis, and became practitioner. For Regardie, magickal endeavour had to interface with spiritual awakening and psychological development. Regardie authored nearly a dozen original books including such substantial works as the Tree of Life, Garden of Pomegranates, The Philosopher’s Stone and the Middle Pillar all of which were first issued in the 1930’s. He worked to make the Golden Dawn system available and understandable to a new generation with new revised editions of the Golden Dawn and original works drawing upon the system in the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s. But his transmission of the Golden Dawn system went beyond just communication of information about the system, he also acted as ritual initiator permitting others the reactivation of the Order. Regardie did far more than publishing Eye in the Triangle to bring Crowley to the public eye. He made those parts of the Equinox relevant to magical instruction available in Gems from the Equinox, as well as having a hand in new editions of many of the most important writings such as 777, Law Is For All, Magick Without Tears, Legend of Aleister Crowley, AHA, Book 4, Holy Books, and World’s Tragedy. A young occultist for whom Regardie acted as mentor/therapist/initiator was Alan Miller (1943-2008), better know by his pen name Christopher Hyatt. The younger man founded the Israel Regardie Foundation and did much to assist the older man in his retirement. He went on to operate a Golden Dawn temple and become a member of the Sanctuary of Gnosis of the O.T.O. His books were widely and enthusiastically received and he founded New Falcon books, a very important publisher of both classic occult works and new wave occulture. Its list featured works by Crowley, Regardie, Jack Parsons, Timothy Leary, Robert Anton Wilson, Lon Milo DuQuette, Pete Carroll, Phil Hine, Richard Kaczynski, Joseph C. Lisiewski, Stephen Mace, Stephen Sennitt etc etc.
