ABOUT Francis King

Francis King
Francis King was a leading authority in the fields of occultism, religion, and Western magic. He was the author of many books, including Tantra: The Way of Action and Techniques of High Magic.



The secret writings of this mystical order reveal the keys to astral projection, clairvoyance, and other magical practices.

The present-day revival of the practice of magic owes much to the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, the fin de siecle secret society that rediscovered many occult traditions dating back to antiquity. Prominent adepts of the Golden Dawn, whose members included W. B. Yeats and Aleister Crowley, preserved these traditions in manuscripts to be circulated among initiates of the Order. These documents, known as the Flying Rolls, reveal secrets of astral projection, clairvoyance, exorcism, alchemy, and other magical practices and occult philosophy. Many of the Flying Rolls escaped print and remained secret for some time, only slowly being tracked down over the years. Here, Francis King presents all the previously unpublished Flying Rolls.
