Introduction to Golden Dawn Qabalah


Other than The Chicken Qabalah what other books are there out there on the Golden Dawn Qabalah. Alongside that are there any other resources?

Thanks

I personally do not think the Golden Dawn version of the Kabbalah is the most useful nor apt, but if that is the orientation desired, then the best I have read is Pat Zalewski's Kabbalah of the Golden Dawn.

Israel Regardie's stuff is probably worth checking out.

Robert Wang's Qabalistic Tarot is pretty hard to beat in this department: articulate, accessible and full of juicy thought... Wang is a an adherent of the Golden Dawn (and actually helped to create the unfortunate Golden Dawn deck). I'd call this book a must read on the topic....

Not meaning to Hijack a thread but I have wangs book as well as chicken qabalah both nice reads but is there a better version of qabalah/tarot combo?

I am thinking most of what I learn will be by inner guides and a lots and lots of meditation but I am still new so dont want to get to confused.

Another good book for path working the Golden Dawn system of Kabbalah is "Experiencing the Kabbalah" by Chic and Tabatha Cicero.The book is O.O.P. but you can find it at Amazon.As far as a Tarot/Kabbalah combo a book that really helped me once I got through Wangs book was "The New Golden Dawn Ritual Tarot" by the Cicero's as well. It's based on Tabathas deck and has a section on the tree of life as well as a lot of useful astrological attributions.The Cicero's have a nack for taking complex ideas and putting them into easy to understand language.I understand Pat Zalewski will be publishing a book on the Golden Dawn tarot as well.It's suppose to be released in November.The book details the deck published by D&S publishing a color your own deck based on Felkins notes.As far as what system of Kabbalah is best that really depends on what system of ritual magic you plan to use.If your planning on doing strictly G.D. ritual then you would want to stick with the G.D. system of Kabbalah.If you plan on adding thelemic or wiccan material then review jmd thread here at AT.Theres a lot of in depth discussion about the Kabbalah and the different systems and view points associated with it........

To also reply to coyoteblack's question, from a Golden Dawn orientation there is also Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki's Shining Paths.
