Published by Inner Traditions, my latest book, The Three Stages of Initiatic Spirituality: Craftsman, Warrior, Magician explores the symbolism, rituals, and metaphysical aspects of each of, and shares meditations, practices, and transformational techniques for, these three initiatic archetypes.
Subjects explored include alchemy, Freemasonry, Kabbalah, Islamic Neoplatonism, martial arts, Taoist inner-alchemy, the Chakras, energy work, Jungian psychology, mind metaphysics, Tantra, sex magic, and modern magic (from Eliphas Levi to Chaos Magic).
I can pretty much guarantee that however much you know about spirituality, initiation, or the occult, there will be something in here that you do not know about.
Praise for The Three Stages of Initiatic Spirituality: Craftsman, Warrior, Magician:
“Angel’s book will make you stronger, sturdier, and more learned.” — Mitch Horowitz, PEN Award–winning historian.
“This book is the result of stunningly broad in-depth research both on the theoretical and on the practical level–a researcher-practitioner at his very best.” — Frater U.D., author of Secrets of Western Sex Magic: Magical Energy and Gnostic Trance.
The Three Stages of Initiatic Spirituality: Craftsman, Warrior, Magician is now available from Barnes&Nobles and Amazon.com, among other booksellers. (For readers in Britain, it will be available from Amazon.co.uk in March but you can preorder it now.)
An author and speaker on the subjects of self-mastery, self-development, spirituality, and esotericism, New Dawn magazine has described the work of Angel Millar as “…of extraordinary importance in this time of cultural and even spiritual conflict.”
In his highly-anticipated fourth book, The Three Stages of Initiatic Spirituality: Craftsman, Warrior, Magician, Millar explores the three archetypes, from their appearance in ancient, tribal society, through ancient Greek thought, Buddhism, Hinduism, the martial arts, Taoist inner-alchemy, Kundalini, Tantra, to alchemy, sex magic, chaos magic, and the positive thinking movement. While providing a solid understanding of the history, mythologies, rituals, and symbols associated with these foundational archetypes, the book also provides details on specific practices and instructions for balancing them within your life.
