Is anybody know anything about this very secret society, who take his source in the learning from the wizdom Israel Regardie ?
Dr. Francis Israel Regardie was a psychotherapist, who spent much of his life studying and practicing the occult, and is one of my favorite
In the 1920’s, Regardie graduated from the University of New York with a degree in psychology, and entered medical school. He was very interested in
the work of Sigmund Freud and Carl Gustav Jung, and eventually discovered the work of the psychiatrist and Jungian analyst Wilhelm Reich, of which he
became a disciple. When the Nazis seized power in Germany, Reich fled to the U.S., where Regardie became his pupil.
After reading Aleister Crowley’s “Liber 4”, Regardie wrote a letter to that author, expressing the desire to learn more about Yoga. Crowley responded,
inviting Regardie to work as his personal secretary in Italy, to which Regardie accepted.
Regardie moved to Cefalu, Sicily to work for Crowley, but soon Crowley and his band of merry pranksters were expelled from Italy by direct order of
Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, and the group relocated to New York.
Regardie worked for Crowley a little longer, but eventually had a falling out, described in Regardie’s book “The Eye In The Triangle: An
Interpretation of Aleister Crowley.” Regardie then joined the Order of Stella Matutina, which was A.E. Waite’s reworking of the Hermetic Order of the
Golden Dawn, a Rosicrucian sect. Regardie then established a psychiatric practice in NYC, where he utilized Freudian, Jungian, and Reichian
techniques, as well as Yoga.
Regardie died in 1985. Since that time, many of his followers have attempted to revive the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn based upon his teachings.
The Order’s rituals, teachings, and lectures were published by Regardie in his book “A Complete Account of the Rites, Ceremonies, and Teachings of the
Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn”. Much of the same had already been published by Aleister Crowley (who was himself a member of the Golden Dawn in
the late 1890’s, when he was still in his 20’s), which were scattered throughout Crowley’s serial “The Equinox”.
