ur civilisation is in crisis. As we confront ecological collapse, political control, wars of terror, and wars on consciousness, we are seeking emergence from this state of emergency.
XVI proposes gnostic strategies for liberation.
Some will consider this a dangerous and inflammatory book, it is.
These provocative essays from the most radical contemporary occult thinkers reveal a creative and passionate engagement with the world.
Attacks on our freedoms can lead to freedom, the sudden enlightenment, the lightning path and the initiatory crisis that the tower also represents.
XVI seeks to raise magickal awareness of the unique times we find ourselves in, whilst being open to the resourcefulness and indominatable nature of the human spirit to find solutions and responses to it. This is magick attuned to the zeitgeist.
The Babel edition of XVI is 280pp comprising sixteen (and one) original and significant essays, bound in natural linen cloth in a strict edition of 700 copies.
The cover is impressed with a sunken panel holding a striking letterpress rendering of the Tower by occult artist Kyle Fite. XVI is printed throughout in red and black ink on heavy paper stock.
It is also forthcoming as a digital epub and mobi edition.
Sex, drugs, art, initiation rites, calls to arms, ritual actions, aeonic plans, revolutionary witchcraft and apocalypse converge in our new title, XVI.
It is a call to arms.
