More About the Author

Israel Regardie (1907-1985) was an Adept of the Golden Dawn and he was one of the greatest exponents of the Western Esoteric Tradition of the 20th century. He was also an initiate of Aleister Crowley's Order of the A.·. A.·., and he was a IXth degree initiate of Crowley's O.T.O. It was his aim to preserve the teachings and work of the Golden Dawn and Aleister Crowley. His success in this task has profoundly influenced occult thought. From the age of 21, Regardie worked as Crowley's personal secretary. During this period, until their bitter parting, Regardie was one of the few who knew Crowley well. He was one of the few who were qualified to provide first-hand, personal insight into the character and personality of one of the major figures in Western Magick. In addition to his extensive writings, Regardie practiced as a chiropractor and as a neo-Reichian therapist. He taught Psychiatry at the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic and contributed articles to many Psychology magazines.

Regardie's most profound work, The Complete Golden Dawn System of Magic, is a 1200 page book published by New Falcon Publications; a company he founded with his student Dr. Christopher Hyatt. The book is currently available in three different editions: a) 1200 page hard bound with index; b) eBook with the same material; and c) a new portable edition as a soft cover. Today Regardie's work is being preserved and perpetuated by New Falcon Publications (www.newfalcon.com) and the Israel Regardie Foundation (www.israelregardiefoundation.net).

I have only read the first two chapters of this book, but I wanted to put some feedback where there is none. The book is written for you to read one chapter with its specific exercize per month. Isreal Regardie is usually very WORDY as was typical for the time period and being a serious occult writer, BUT this book is not wordy at all. This book is a small quick and from what I can tell excellent place to start actually practicing the occult. For instance the first chapter and exercise is to just sit/lay and work on being sensitive with what your feeling. The second exercize is on breathing. The rest of the book seems to be very practical and from what I can tell I would recommend to any student on spiritual practices. This book is written not to exclude anyone with any particular religious belief but only to start a practical approach to spiritual practice.

...but it's important enough to me to reiterate a point, that I'm willing to repeat words previously stated. If you are a "student" of magic/k, the occult, esoterica, the Western Mystery Tradition or whatever other term you may care to you, and you would like to make the transition into be a PRACTITIONER of the arts, this is the book for you! This book is exactly what the title claims it to be: a manual. Devoid of a lot of theoretical considerations, it moves directly into what to DO over the course of a year to get a firm footing into higher practices. Regardie's "The One Year Manual" was recommended to me by my guide, and I feel just as comfortable making this commendation.

I am a big fan of Israel Regardie and have most of his books. I feel this one is a good addition to the others, in particular, The Middle Pillar, but on it's own would be a little confusing. There is alot of assumed knowledge but I would definitely recommend it along with other writings of his.

Format: Paperback
I have a few hesitations abt this book: I think some of th relaxation and body awareness exercises can mess you up, all the while that they make you feel good for a time. Exercises where you try to sense all the minute sensations in your body, can be destructive. The body needs to be aware of itself to some extent, yet awakening too much awareness sensitises nerves which in the long run, are best left not too overly sensitised. Messing with the unconscious in this fashion, isnt the safest thing to do. Yet this is till a useful book.

Also, the exercise where one viualises the body, in a relaxed state, as ' full of holes' may, in the long run, create some real physical problems, as far as I can see. Far better to heed Crowley's advice, and regard or visulaize the body as primarily functioning silently with 'perfect frictionless ease,' each indidividual organ doing its respective task in unison with all the others.

Heed the works of Emma Curtis Hopkins, if you would to learn more on this. Dont be put off by her pollyannish style: the proper spiritualising of the body can do wonders for some people.

In a nutshell: the simple breathing and relaxation exercises set forth in this book are wprth the price of the book alone. and are as good as many such exercises you may find elsewhere.

This little volume is, quite simply, one of the best brief health books one could possibly own.

Embraced within Regardie's intelligent perspective, are a few chapters on breathing, relaxation, and body 'awareness'(you'll have to read the book to find out how useful this is, and how its done,) that are the best little, astute guides to health practices outside of diet, exercise, and advice from a regular, reputable physician.

If you are interested in occultism, whatever that may mean to you, and have no idea were to start, give this book a shot, it is a year worth of work, check the table of contents, it's less than a hundred pages long but topics it covers are extensive, like:

-Body Awareness
-Developing the Will
-The Middle Pilar Ritual
-Unity - All Is God.

As the cover says, it's a year worth of work (actually, I'd guess it's much more) so don't be disheartened by it's size, it's more how you use it!.

The One Year Manual: Twelve Steps to Spiritual Enlightenment contains a nice series of steps to prepare one's self for being more in-touch with their higher consciousness and be more in-tune with life itself.

While none of the content is ground-breaking/new, it still is a well put together collection of exercises.
