The world of the occult has always been typified and understood in terms of categories; white and black magick, good and evil magick, "authentic" rites and ceremonies with a definitive tradition and those of a more modernized form.

However, most categorization systems have looked at the occult as something mostly to be defined based on subjective definitions of whether such rites are or are not acceptable within a cultural context. This text attempts to categorize some of the more important phenomena within the mystic world based on whether their source is found within or without the practitioner, and attempts then to explain the basics of the philosophies behind these phenomena.

    At first, I was a little disappointed when the book began defining different 'rituals' on meditation and other physical arts as well as describing the process of how it's done(eg. Yoga, Taichi etc.) Can't say that I've learned anything extravagant regarding magical traditions as I hoped I would, but then again, I have way big and possibly too fantasy-based expectations out of books regarding magic and occult. The second half was surely interesting and caught my attention. Though my opinion stands at that the content was more of a description rather than telling connections between different traditions and rituals.

    Excellent book on internalized and externalized occult practices. Dispelled some notions that I had about certain practices, and indeed helped me to improve on my current ritual practices. Would recommend it to any practicing occultist.
