Lords of Light: The Path of Initiation in the Western Mysteries

Front Cover
Inner Traditions / Bear & Co, 1990 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 182 pages
With humility, humor, and conviction, Butler conveys an extensive knowledge of the occult mysteries, including ritual and ceremonial magic, the awakening of kundalini energy, and the path of the qabalistic tree of life. The overriding theme of his lectures concerns regeneration of the personality and the relinquishing of the false ego through control of one’s mental and emotional reactions.

About the author (1990)

Born at the turn of the century, W. E. Butler studied in India among Hindu spiritual teachers and with the well-known mystic Annie Besant. In England, he worked closely with Dion Fortune in the Society of the Inner Light. Butler is the author of numerous works, including How to Read the Aura and Practice Psychometry, Telepathy, and Clairvoyance. At Butler's request, Lords of Light was edited from his Ibis Fraternity lectures by his longtime student and friend, M.A. Geikie.
