In all cases the most recent publication is cited so far as we are aware but there will be many others which can be found new or second hand in bookshops and via the internet sellers; most can be found on Amazon. Her first published work of fiction as Dion Fortune, this is a collection of short studies or case studies into paranormal pathologies and is still deemed her best fictional work by many of her fans. Dr Taverner runs a strange esoteric nursing home aimed at freeing souls suffering from various forms of super-normal pathology that normal psychological methods cannot cure.
His cases include vampirism, possession, shape shifting, faery, reincarnation and psychic attack. Dion Fortune, The Secrets of Dr. Her first published novel under her pen name, this is an interesting study in the abuses of magic for personal gain by the dark practitioner Lucas, initially by the use of hypnosis to gain power over Veronica to further his own magical ambitions.
A gentle novel that is also a fascinating study of power, attraction, love, death, karma and redemption. There is much occult teaching in its pages. Those who read the novels without having studied the Qabalah will get hints and a stimulus to their subconscious. As Our Lord said: Ted Murchison, a former army officer in WW1, has drifted aimlessly since being demobbed and wanders into the British Museum rather than go home to his dreary clergyman brother and his wife. Here he sees and is impressed with one of the Assyrian winged bulls that seems almost alive.
Murchison then finds himself spontaneously beginning an invocation to Pan. What he gets is not the Great God Pan but Colonel Brangwyn his old superior officer who appears out of the mist.
Brangwyn needs him to help save his sister Ursula from Black Magic and the clutches of an evil magician. A ripping evocative occult yarn with a hero rescuing damsel in distress themed romance on the surface, but a study too in relationships, polarity, black and white magic, dark against light. And a lot of esoteric clues. The Great God Pan is the goat foot god of the title and here as in the last novel, The Winged Bull, there is a three way relationship of an older man overseeing the relationship of a younger man and woman, as well as acting as instructor in the magical arts.
In addition there is the influence of the 15 th century monk Ambrosius who haunts the ruined monastery that Hugh Paston purchases and converts into a temple to Pan. Hugh is on a journey of self discovery, and discovers a lot more besides. A good tale with a lot of occult instruction. This edition includes a forward by Gareth Knight. Wilfred Maxwell is a bit of a loner, a successful estate agent who wants to be an artist.
During one of his asthmatic attacks and the aftermath has a vivid dream where he sees the approach of a Sea Priestess.
Principles of Esoteric Healing
She engages him to restore and decorate an old sea fort. With the use of telepathy she pulls in the very successful but emotionally repressed Dr Rupert Malcolm to help her work and to train as her priest.
Her fictional home and temple is based on an actual building, The Belfry, where in the s the Rites of Isis and Pan were publicly performed. A collection of articles on various aspects of magic. The essays deal with yoga, the Mysteries of the East and West, the etheric double and psychic centres, magnetism, the Astral Light and other aspects of energy work crucial to magical working.
It is not a workbook but provides much very useful information as to how magic works. One reading is not enough for this complex book, but persevere; the material was channelled through the trance mediumship of Dion Fortune and deals with cosmology, creation and evolution on a cosmic scale. It begins at the very beginning: It continues through the first manifestation, the first trinity, the beginning of the solar system and its cosmic influences.
It continues through the evolving of the Great Entities, the Lords of Flame and Form, the planets, the birth of consciousness and the building of the planes, the evolution of the seed atoms that become the life swarms of humanity, and the Universal Laws by which we must all exist.
The book concludes with additional material not available in earlier editions and which was channelled at a later date. This helpful section elucidates some of the concepts set out in the main body of the work and is written in less archaic terms. An introduction and overview of the Western Mystery Tradition, its origins, its division into occult schools and fraternities, the approach and workings of those schools and their inner plane contacts known as The Masters.
Dion Fortune explains clearly the esoteric principles of polarity between the sexes, and upon the different planes of existence. After introductory chapters that set down some basic esoteric concepts for the beginner she discusses and explains the esoteric aspects of relationships, not only in marriage and partnerships but also in groups and families. Chapters cover subjects such as karmic ties, positive and negative effects on the different planes, soul mates, marriage, children, abstinence, promiscuity and unnatural use of the sex function.
She combines her knowledge and experience of psychology and the occult to explain these principles. A guide to the magical, religious and spiritual sites and myths of Glastonbury written in beautifully evocative prose. A very good working textbook for those learning magic.
Emphasis is on proper mind training and discipline without which no true magic may be done. It ends with the original High Cross Temple Working which, with variants and derivatives is still actively in use by magical fraternities. This is magic as it really kf.
They consist of a series of visualisations for members to undertake as a way of evoking angelic protection and reinforcing public morale from an inner level. She continued to write them from her home in London throughout the Blitz. Later they were made available to non-members of the SIL who wished to take part in the work. They include information received through her mediumship as well as her own practical and down to earth approach to the war situation and inner work. The letters are presented alongside some excellent and explanatory commentary by Gareth Knight.
Her classic exposition on the Qabalistic Tree of Life, exploring the many patterns on the Tree, the Lightning Dipn, the Triangles, the four dimensions or Worlds, the relationship between each of the Sephiroth, the patterns they form on the three pillars, and the correspondences. Each of the Sephiroth is described in a separate chapter with an illuminating explanation of its function and meaning. It has never been out of print since first published and deservedly so.
It does not deal with the 22 connecting paths; that was to be princples volume which was never completed. It is a seminal work for those treading the path of the Western Mystery Tradition.
Church goers current and lapsed will be familiar with the Sunday Collects which are part of the liturgy of the Anglican Church. There are 83 in prinviples, and you can follow the Church year with them or just dip in and find the one that resonates with you at that time, for their themes are Universal.
It retains the original complete text but includes additional material supplied from the SIL archives by Gareth Knight. He has also added a short introduction or commentary to each chapter.
Chapters include essays on Basic Principles, Meditation and use of the Imagination, Astral Magic, Reincarnation and past life recall, Karma, Divination, use and abuse of Din Power, what she refers to as Etheric Magnetism which includes nature and elemental contacts, and Polarity.
It was kf intended that they should be put together as a book although it was unfortunately not published until now.
Two books in one. This is still regarded as one of esooteric best manuals on psychic attack and gives an insight into the type of phenomena that might be esotedic and how to deal with them.
Importantly, she distinguishes between actual objective attack and subjective disturbances and shows readers how to diagnose an actual attack. She gives various methods of defence, all of which work well. Dion Fortune, Psychic Self Defence: You can read the introduction online on the Kindle edition for free on Amazon.
However, it needed a re-issue as the old editions are rare and expensive. This new edition includes an index. The book is an overview and presentation of occultism in its many aspects and is indeed a sane and sensible approach.
A very useful overview and companion. However this edition adds much in the form of additional writings which Gareth Knight has collected and which form the commentaries along with his own introductions.
This core manual is divided into three parts: Ethical, Theoretical and Practical which together give details and practical help for the approach, ideals, preparation and training of a would-be initiate. An important chapter is that dealing with the Path of the Hearth-Fire, which emphasises that those who for personal and family reasons cannot actively be part of a Lodge or undergo formal training, can still walk the Path. This newest edition includes an introduction by Gareth Knight. Originally presented as a series of lectures, and much influenced by Freud, this short guide to the workings of the mind is nevertheless a useful basic overview.
It covers in brief such matters as instincts and the instinctual mind, complexes, repression and sublimation, symbology, fantasies, dreams and delusions. Not a text book by any means but it points you in the right direction and flags up the ideals of any human being, not just budding or practising magicians.
This is a charming collection of early poetry and prose. They are mostly nature poems, essays and hymns and despite being written so young are already revealing her later style. This volume is a reprint of the original Jarrold edition. The title possibly belies its contents which are a frank discussion on attitudes towards sex and sexuality, and the control and sublimation of the sex force into higher spiritual energy for the greater good.
Some of the views seem a little old fashioned or out of step with our modern standards but the principles are founded on ancient wisdom. Firth for the glory of God and the comfort of men.
