Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn – Wikipedia, the free …

This article is about the historical organization of the late 19th century. For other meanings, see Golden Dawn.

The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn (or, more commonly, the Golden Dawn) was an organization devoted to the study and practice of the occult, metaphysics, and paranormal activities during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Known as a magical order, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn was active in Great Britain and focused its practices on theurgy and spiritual development. Many present-day concepts of ritual and magic that are at the centre of contemporary traditions, such as Wicca[1][2] and Thelema, were inspired by the Golden Dawn, which became one of the largest single influences on 20th-century Western occultism.[3][4]

The three founders, William Robert Woodman, William Wynn Westcott, and Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers were Freemasons and members of Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia (S.R.I.A.).[5] Westcott appears to have been the initial driving force behind the establishment of the Golden Dawn.

The Golden Dawn system was based on hierarchy and initiation like the Masonic Lodges; however women were admitted on an equal basis with men. The “Golden Dawn” was the first of three Orders, although all three are often collectively referred to as the “Golden Dawn”. The First Order taught esoteric philosophy based on the Hermetic Qabalah and personal development through study and awareness of the four Classical Elements as well as the basics of astrology, tarot divination, and geomancy. The Second or “Inner” Order, the Rosae Rubeae et Aureae Crucis (the Ruby Rose and Cross of Gold), taught proper magic, including scrying, astral travel, and alchemy. The Third Order was that of the “Secret Chiefs”, who were said to be highly skilled; they supposedly directed the activities of the lower two orders by spirit communication with the Chiefs of the Second Order.

Influences on Golden Dawn concepts and work include: Christian mysticism, Qabalah, Hermeticism, Ancient Egyptian religion, Theurgy, Freemasonry, Alchemy, Theosophy, Astrology, Eliphas Levi, Papus, John Dee & Edward Kelly, Enochian magic, and Renaissance grimoires, as well as Anna Kingsford & Frederick Hockley.

The foundational documents of the original Order of the Golden Dawn, known as the Cipher Manuscripts, are written in English using Trithemius cipher. The manuscripts give the specific outlines of the Grade Rituals of the Order and prescribe a curriculum of graduated teachings that encompass the Hermetic Qabalah, astrology, occult tarot, geomancy, and alchemy.

According to the records of the Order, the manuscripts passed from Kenneth R. H. Mackenzie, a Masonic scholar, to the Rev. A. F. A. Woodford, whom British occult writer Francis King describes as the fourth founder[6] (although Woodford died shortly after the Order was founded).[7] The documents did not excite Woodford, and in February 1886 he passed them on to Freemason William Wynn Westcott, who managed to decode them in 1887.[6] Westcott, pleased with his discovery, called on fellow Freemason Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers for a second opinion. Westcott asked for Mathers’ help to turn the manuscripts into a coherent system for lodge work. Mathers in turn asked fellow Freemason William Robert Woodman to assist the two, and he accepted.[6] Mathers and Westcott have been credited with developing the ritual outlines in the Cipher Manuscripts into a workable format.[8] Mathers, however, is generally credited with the design of the curriculum and rituals of the Second Order, which he called the Rosae Rubae et Aureae Crucis (“Ruby Rose and Golden Cross” or the RR et AC).[9]

In October 1887, Westcott claimed to have written to a German countess and prominent Rosicrucian named Anna Sprengel, whose address was said to have been found in the decoded Cipher Manuscripts. Apparently, Sprengel had the ability to contact certain supernatural entities, known as the Secret Chiefs, that were considered the authorities over any magical order or esoteric organization. Westcott purportedly received a reply from Sprengel granting permission to establish a Golden Dawn temple and conferring honorary grades of Adeptus Exemptus on Westcott, Mathers, and Woodman. The temple was to consist of the five grades outlined in the manuscripts.[10][11]

In 1888, the Isis-Urania Temple was founded in London.[10] In contrast to the S.R.I.A. and Masonry,[11] women were allowed and welcome to participate in the Order in “perfect equality” with men. The Order was more of a philosophical and metaphysical teaching order in its early years. Other than certain rituals and meditations found in the Cipher manuscripts and developed further,[12] “magical practices” were generally not taught at the first temple.

For the first four years, the Golden Dawn was one cohesive group later known as “the Outer Order” or “First Order.” An “Inner Order” was established and became active in 1892. The Inner Order consisted of members known as “adepts,” who had completed the entire course of study for the Outer Order. This group of adepts eventually became known as the Second Order.[citation needed]

The Golden Dawn: The Original Account of the Teachings …

From the Publisher When Llewellyn first published The Golden Dawn by Israel Regardie thirty years ago, about all we did was take the original four-volume set and repackage it into two volumes. I thought it was an important book then, and believe it is even more valuable now.

Today, we are proud to present the sixth edition. It has now been retypeset so it is easier to read and we have corrected errors that existed since the first edition. We have added new material by Israel Regardie and others who are practicing the Golden Dawn tradition, including notes that help to clarify some of the ideas in the book. And to make the book even easier to use, a complete index has been added.

This book is truly the fountainhead of occult wisdom in this age. Are you interested in the Tarot? Many of the major expounders of the cards, including A.E. Waite and Paul Foster Case were members of the Golden Dawn. Are you interested in Aleister Crowley? He received his basic training in the Golden Dawn. Do you like the mystic poetry of W.B. Yeats? He was a member for many years, and much of the symbolism in his poetry is explained here. The teachings of many modern Kabalists are unified in this book.

Get to know the source! Learn the original instructions for the pentagram and hexagram rituals. Discover the secrets of charging tools, their complex Tarot system, and Enochian magic. You’ll learn to do the magic that others just talk about when you study The Golden Dawn.

In 1934 he was invited to join the Order of the Golden Dawn, Stella Matutina Temple, during which time he wrote The Middle Pillar and The Art of True Healing, and did the basic work for The Philosopher’s Stone.

Returning to the United States in 1937 he entered Chiropractic College in New York, Graduating in 1941, and published The Golden Dawn. Served in the U.S. Army 1942-1945, and then moved to Los Angeles where he opened a chiropractic practice and taught psychiatry. Upon retirement in 1981, he moved to Sedona.

During his lifetime, he studied psychoanalysis with Dr. E. Clegg and Dr. J. L. Bendit, and later studied psychotherapy under Dr. Nandor Fodor. His training encompassed Freudian, Jungian and Reichian methods.

Golden Dawn Diner II – Trenton, NJ | Yelp

Girlfriend and I went around 1PM for the lunch specials. Staff was courteous and very friendly (always a pleasant surprise at a diner). The wait was pretty long, this is my main complaint, but the place was crowded and we filled our time by working our way through rolls and then soups. The portions are HUGE and I would recommend coming here on a completely empty stomach so you can enjoy it all. The rolls are not something to be taken lightly. They’re warm and hearty and delicious. The soups are very rich in flavor and you get a very large bowl.

Our entrees were a lasagna dish for her and a some kind of steak and vegetable wrap for me. It’s been a few weeks since this meal, so forgive me if I can’t recall exactly what we ordered. The lasagna was some seriously good lasagna. I normally wouldn’t expect a local diner to get that right. The wrap was filled with quality meat and fresh grilled vegetables. Both of these meals were so large that we could have ordered just one and split it between us and we would have been more than satisfied. Neither of us could actually finish our meals but we managed to eat some rice pudding, which is included in one of the lunch specials (that’s soup + entree + dessert).

I would place this diner on the same tier as the New Ewing Diner in terms of quality of service, quality of food, portion sizes, and price. It’s a bit pricier than other diners but you get what you pay for. It seems the quality of this place fluctuates quite a bit, looking at reviews and having been wholly unsatisfied over a year ago. I may be eating here in a few weeks so I will update my post if it turns out I was just really lucky this one time. Based on this recent experience, however, I was thoroughly impressed and recommend giving it a second chance.

Greek neo-Nazis get life for murdering Pakistani – DAWN.COM

ATHENS: Two suspected members of Greece’s neo-Nazi party Golden Dawn received life sentences on Tuesday over the fatal stabbing of a Pakistani immigrant last year, a judicial source said.

However, the Athens court judging the case threw out the prosecution’s argument that the murder of 27-year-old Shehzad Luqman in January 2013 was racially motivated.

Luqman’s killing, and that of Greek leftist rapper Pavlos Fyssas a few months earlier, prompted Greek authorities to begin a crackdown on Golden Dawn that revealed the group’s violent paramilitary activities, according to investigators.

Several of the party’s senior members are now behind bars awaiting trial, with the Greek judiciary gathering evidence to show Golden Dawn operated as a criminal organisation.

Dionyssis Liakopoulos, 25, and Christos Steriopoulos, 29, were arrested a few hours after Luqman’s murder when a taxi driver who witnessed the attack reported their motorbike numberplate to police.

According to the driver, the pair drove up behind the victim and assaulted him as he was cycling in the Petralona neighbourhood near the Acropolis.

A search of Liakopoulos’s home found Golden Dawn leaflets in addition to knives and truncheons, although the two men have denied membership in the neo-Nazi party.

The pair said they got into an argument with the victim after he blocked their path with his bicycle.

Six of Golden Dawn’s 18 elected members of parliament are currently behind bars awaiting trial and a total of nine have been indicted on charges of belonging to, or running, a criminal organisation.

Formerly on the fringe of Greek politics, openly xenophobic and anti-Semitic Golden Dawn has seen its popularity soar as it taps into widespread anger over immigration and austerity reforms in debt-wracked Greece.

Greek far right fires up Athens election campaign

Greek far right fires up Athens election campaign

By Renee Maltezou & Deepa Babington

Greek far-right Golden Dawn lawmaker Ilias Kasidiaris strode into a packed hotel room in central Athens last month to the sound of a marching song and supporters’ cries of “Here comes the mayor!”

“In less than 100 years, Greeks will become a minority in their country. The only way to strike at the root of evil is through the municipal elections,” Kasidiaris said, pledging to rid the Greek capital of “thieves and immigrants.”

“We must win the May elections to save the Greek blood,” he roared before leading the crowd in singing the national anthem.

The raucous gathering was just one campaign stop in an increasingly heated Athens’ mayoral race, the most symbolic and closely watched battle in Greece’s local and European elections in May – the first big electoral test for Prime Minister Antonis Samaras since he took power in 2012.

At stake is the right to run the ancient city that gave birth to democracy over 2,500 years ago but is now on its knees, riven by protests, rising homelessness and poverty-ridden areas.

After six years of recession and austerity, the election is being fought as much on national issues like an unpopular EU-IMF bailout as on local issues. Opposition parties see it as a test of sentiment on Samaras’s pro-bailout government.

“The municipal elections now have more of a political meaning because they are being held for the first time in the middle of the chaos of the debt crisis,” said Dimitris Mavros, head of the MRB polling agency.

The rise of far-right and anti-EU parties has been seen across Europe as voters shun the mainstream architects of austerity policies, such as in France, the Netherlands, Belgium and even non-euro zone Britain.
