This book delivers a genuine transformation of occultism.The author assumes no previous knowledge, only a willingness to explore what magick offers, yet it’s apparent to anyone with a background in the subject that Alan Chapman is drawing on a wide range of experience, from classical Crowleyean Magick, to eastern metaphysics, and back again to Discordianism and Chaos Magick. Chapman’s writing-style is humorous, direct, seductively logical, and his enthusiasm for the benefits of magick is both tangible and infectious. The novice magician will indeed find themselves equipped to commence all sorts of magickal operations: trance work, enchantment, divination, and even some of the higher forms of spiritual development. To experienced magicians, Chapman offers a subtler challenge: he revitalises magick by cutting it free from the extreme relativism Chaos Magick bequeathed, provocatively redefining it as: ‘the art, science and culture of experiencing truth.’

Chapman and Barford are two contemporary magicians who have transformed the face of contemporary occultism by reviving the notion of ‘The Great Work’ and setting modern magick free from the dead-end of post-modern nihilism. The Urn is the second in the three-volume series of their uncensored magical exploits. Having successfully crossed the abyss, the two authors now set their sights on the goal of full enlightenment, setting out in detail their findings and techniques. On the way they encounter a guru who can enlighten people just by being near them; receive prophecies from an astral representative of The Great White Brotherhood; and explore the true significance of love and the meaning of life. Like the first volume (The Blood of the Saints), this compelling collection of essays, articles, rituals and interviews contains utterly unique material that lays bare the true meaning and purpose of magick in a straightforward and humorous style. It will prove an invaluable guide for anyone interested in understanding how the Western Magical Tradition remains an authentic source of wisdom for seekers after truth in the Twenty-First Century.

In their ongoing effort to unleash magick from the dead-end of extreme post-modernism, and re-invigorate the notion of 'The Great Work', the authors climb onto the ladder of enlightenment and haul themselves across the abyss, detailing their techniques and experiences as they go. This compendium of articles, essays, dialogues and magickal rituals contains all you need to know to replicate that process and cross the abyss for yourself, plus plenty more besides: spirits, angels, demons, aliens, Aleister Crowley, Robert Anton Wilson and Austin Osman Spare. The book is written in the usual down-to-earth and humorous style of the authors' award-winning occult website, The Baptist's Head, where most of this material first appeared. It has been lovingly revised, referenced and indexed for this collection.
