ARBOR DE MAGISTRO
By Nikolai Saunders
Arbor de Magistro is the culmination of over a decade of intensive practical application. It is first and foremost a grimoire, a handbook for those seeking guidance into the realms of Aethyric evocation, but it also contains initiations. These initiations follow the premise that the Third Order work be devised by the Student. And, while anyone can proclaim themselves as a Magister, this book provides a glimpse into a formula devised based on an in-depth study of Thelema and Golden Dawn.
The system presented in this volume uses the Enochian Aethyrs, which are regions of consciousness making up the known universe. Traditional evocation does not utilize the Aethyrs, nor does classical Enochian make use of the circle and triangle of Art. In this system though the magician makes use of all these tools. The final goal behind Arbor de Magistro is to provide a new system of evocation fusing Enochian (Aethyrs) and Solomonic Magick (Goetia).
