And the big news of the day is the announcement of the release of Commentaries on the Golden Dawn Flying Rolls. (Info here).
For those who do not know, the Flying Rolls were instructional papers circulated within the historical Golden Dawn. They mostly concern real magic, by real people who really experienced it. This edition contains not only an authoritative version of the rolls, but also a lovely and learned commentary for each. These come from a range of folk right across the Golden Dawn community and shows how we all really get along and work together like good girls and boys 🙂 Look at some of the names:
Frater A.M., Frater AR, Deanna Bonds, Christopher Bradford, Chic Cicero, Sandra Tabatha Cicero, Ian Cowburn, Morgan Drake Eckstein, Nick Farrell, Paola Farrell, Lauren Gardner, Jayne Gibson, Frater Goya, VH Frater IOV, Aaron Leitch, Liza Llewellyn, Joseph Max, Frater Philomancer, VH Soror QQDAM, Samuel Scarborough, Eric V. Sisco, Rachael Walker, Sam Webster, Harry Wendrich, Peregrin Wildoak, Frater Yechidah, Frater YShY
Woot woot and all that! I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy (release date 14 June 2013).
Too Pagan for all this ceremonial nonsense?! You’re wrong. Beloved mother of Wicca, Doreen Valiente, learnt some magic from these rolls, and made her own notes on them. So can you!
Well, that’s all 🙂
