New author and release: Theion Publishing is very pleased to welcome Richard Gavin to its fold. As long time admirers of his work we are especially delighted to be publishing Richard’s first full length book of occult non-fiction. Get ready to enter The Benighted Path.
In his highly anticipated first full length book of occult non-fiction, critically acclaimed author Richard Gavin draws on the shadow aspects of a variety of traditions, including the khabit of Ancient Egypt, the Biocentrism of Ludwig Klages, Aghora, the Gothic, and David Beth’s pan-daemonic Gnosis, and distills them through his own esoteric praxis of more than two decades. The Benighted Path is an intense exploration of the breach through which the egoic self is slain in order to unleash the aspirant’s true Monstrous Soul. Only then may the Benighted offer their adoration to the Gorgon and partake of the Sidereal Feast.
The praxis of our philosophy is magic; our philosophy itself is the theory of magic. its final formulas are spells and have magical power. ~ Ludwig Klages
This groundbreaking release is the first authoritative work on Ludwig Klages and his pagan metaphysics ever to be published in English. Without a doubt Klages is one of the most intriguing and enigmatic pagan thinkers of the early 20th Century. A figure of great controversy he radically rejected Christianity and Monotheism in favor of a pan-daemonic paganism. Advocating the return to primordial states of consciousness through magico-erotic encounters with the living powers of the ensouled cosmos, Klages was a driving force in the notorious Cosmic Circle of German mystics. Masterfully expounding his vision of daemonic Life in various disciplines he was a great influence on many important contemporaries. The work of esoteric teachers such as Lama Anagarika Govinda, Michael Bertiaux and David Beth has been deeply inspired by the magical antinomian biocentrism of Klages. Misinterpreted, vilified and slandered, this great heretic and ‘high priest of the irrational’ remains virtually unknown in the English speaking world although his work may have never been more relevant.
Thoroughly edited and annotated by David Beth this work by Dr. Gunnar Alksnis features additional essays by Dr. Volker Zotz, successor of Lama Anagarika Govinda and head of the Arya Maitreya Mandala Order of Tantric Buddhism and Prof. Paul Bishop of the University of Glasgow.
