Publications by John Michael Greer


Publications by R.G.Torrens:

Generally hard to obtain or very expensive but worth searching for.

  • Secret Rituals of the Golden Dawn
  • The Golden Dawn its inner teachings
  • Golden Dawn


Publications by Darcy Kuntz:

Books and pamphlets by this eminent researcher are becoming increasingly hard to obtain, and prices for most are quite high. He specialises in previously unpublished Golden Dawn material covering a great many aspects of historical significance that despite the cost are well worth seeking.


Publications by Pat Zalewski:

Pat Zalewski is at the forefront of presenting unpublished Golden Dawn material in the hands of modern students. His material, some of it out of print now, is always worth having for a serious student


Publications by R.A.Gilbert:

He hosts quite a number of Golden Dawn books relating to previously unpublished historical data of the Order. Any books penned by him are well worth obtaining to give additional basis to the original Order. Not necessarily for practical application they do give a good grounding in the Orders structure.
