A 15th-century grimoire, or book of magic, that includes instructions on how an individual can make contact with their Holy Guardian Angel.
Although the instructions may seem quite simple, few have managed to complete the operation – even the highly experienced occultist Aleister Crowley failed to do so.
Over a six-month period in 1977, Ramsey Dukes attempted this Abramelin operation. The challenge was to adapt the ritual to twentieth century conditions, and The Abramelin Diaries is his record of the struggle and the outcome. Looking forward, the book offers practical advice for anyone wanting to attempt this notorious operation themselves. Looking back, the author comments on the operation’s legacy: what happened after, how it changed – and continues to impact – him and his life.
Is spiritual retirement still relevant today? Or is it just nostalgia for a simpler, more meaningful lifestyle? Why does technological empowerment threaten our sense of purpose? Many intriguing questions are raised as we read of one man’s struggle to shape a simple, significant lifestyle routine from the chaos of normality.
