In this newly rediscovered text, famed occultist Israel Regardie sheds light on the psychological and spiritual meaning behind the symbols and metaphors of alchemy. Fully edited and antated by Chic and Sandra Tabatha Cicero, Gold is the first new book by Regardie published in decades. Analyzing The True Book of Synesius-an important seventeenth century alchemical treatise-Regardie uses the language of Jungian psychology, magnetism, and hypsis while citing his own unique experiences as a therapist and healer. Touching upon alchemical theory, Taoist philosophy, yoga, hyptism, Zen Buddhism, and experiments with the human aura, Gold is a definitive work by a true master.
Israel Regardie studied with famous occultist Aleister Crowley and joined the Order of the Golden Dawn, Stella Matutina Temple, in 1934. His writings contributed to the foundation of modern Western occultism. Chic and Tabatha Cicero are senior adepts of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. They have written numerous books on the Golden Dawn, tarot, and magic, in addition to updates and introductions to several classic Israel Regardie texts.
