Editorial Reviews

Review

The Light of Sex is worth considering for anyone who wants to understand another angle to the spirituality of sexuality.” (Midwest Book Review, October 2011)

The Light of Sex is a fascinating historical record of the philosophies and rites of the Golden arrow, as conceived by Maria de Naglowska” (Psyche, Facing North, July 2012)

“...that it is fresh and thought-provoking look at metaphysical issues that should be of interest to all, and a point of entry into a chapter of modern occult history that has been largely and notably obscure.” (Frater Lux Ad Mundi, Behutet, October 2012)

“A legendary psychic and visionary, she was [Maia de Naglowska], and is, an important figure in the Western Mystery traditions, who has been little noticed until now by the English-speaking world.” (Anna Jedrziewski, New Age Retailer, January 2011)

The Light of Sex is a fascinating historical record of the philosophies and rites of the Golden arrow, as conceived by Maria de Naglowska . . .” (SpiralNature.com, July 2011)

From the Inside Flap

OCCULT / SEXUALITY

Never before available in English, The Light of Sex expounds the tenets of the revolutionary religious system conceived by Maria de Naglowska--Russian mystic, occultist, esoteric high priestess, rumored lover of Julius Evola, and self-styled “Satanic Woman” of 1930s Paris. Centered on what she called the Third Term of the Trinity, in which the Holy Spirit of the classic Christian trinity is recognized as the divine feminine, her practices aim to bring about a reconciliation of the light and dark forces in nature through the union of the masculine and feminine. Revealing the spiritually transformative power of sex, she shows how--through mystic sexual practices and veneration of the feminine spirit--growth of the soul, regeneration of the world, and enlightenment of humankind can be achieved.

This mystic treatise and guide to the sexually charged rituals that were a cause célèbre in 1930s Paris was required reading for those seeking to be initiated into Naglowska’s magical group La confrérie de la Flèche d’Or [The Brotherhood of the Golden Arrow]. It reveals Naglowska to be a powerful visionary, whose psychic powers were legendary, and an important figure in the continuing evolution of the Western Mystery tradition.

MARIA DE NAGLOWSKA (1883-1936) was a Russian occultist, mystic, and founder of the Brotherhood of the Golden Arrow. Her conferences in Paris in the 1930s were attended by many now famous avant-garde and notorious writers and artists, such as Julius Evola, Man Ray, and André Breton. She is also known for her translation of P. B. Randolph’s Magia Sexualis, the classic occult text that has survived only through her translation. DONALD TRAXLER is both a translator and student of the occult. He lives in Martinez, California.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Vincent S. Scioli on August 20, 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
the translator makes too many apologies for the term satanism in the footnotes.. defined once or twice is fine, while not even necessary for the initiated, but to go on and on using non-synonyms towards it's understanding may only calm the nervous so much while risking total misunderstanding by those of them who seek harder than they pray.. BUT the subject matter and the (as far as i can tell) translation of this great work is of huge importance and clarity! this is not a pornographic outer temple book! this is for those vigilant in their duty! i was corresponding with the translator before the book was published and i don't think even he understood what a gem he was truly working on here! it is superb! i plan to get the series! blessings all! - rev. nazaright

8 of 21 people found the following review helpful By Priestess Auset Ra Amen on May 25, 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book not only did not contain anything in regards to sex magic, it quite frankly had nothing about sex, now if your looking for cool quotes on philosophy on mankind absconding religion in favor of freeing themselves from the archaic rules of a repressed society. then this is the book for you. I felt like the little old lady in the commercial back in the day that kept screaming where's the beef!!!, now while I understand back in those days folks got a thrill of dressing up like warlocks and pretending to be leaders of high magical sex cults *eye roll* I can certainly see the thrill in those boring days, and need to liven things up a bit but come on!! true sex magic is no mystery or requires initiation into some "secret order" if you are the average human devoid of repression love sex and approach it from the angle of a 7 course meal with Mozart playing in the background. then you my friend are a sex magician. if you like your sex quick fast and in a hurry, five minutes of animistic putting holes in the hallway walls with DMX blasting in the background, you also are a sex magician. and as for hanging isn't that the same foolishness David Carridean did that had him making a quick trip back to the ancestral realm? nuff said. then on page 88 where the priestess can only be blond haired and not any other ethnic race because this is the law? I had to lol at that, these "folks" running around thinking they created something need to recognized they very teachings they followed originated from those temples in Kemet and from Sumerian rituals which were black people. now while I have no beefs with other races claiming their thang, lets not act like you were the originators and put in that racist law of blond priestess crap.Read more ›
