Synopsis: For the first time in print, a practicing Magician and student of the occult offers the knowledge and fundamental exercises necessary to begin actual occult practices, no matter what 'tradition' the student may follow. Paenitere is now manifested for all who want to possess it. Within its pages, a serious student will learn what occultism truly is and why modern occultism is what all of the Magicians of yore called 'false and vain'. The author is 'old guard' and this shows in his writings. Paenitere was written as a collected distillation of letters and conversations with actual students, which force the Neophyte and the serious student of magic to re-evaluate everything, engage in his own research, and think for himself. He or she will learn what occultism is, its fundamental concepts, and the basic universal techniques and exercises that all the true Mystery Schools taught. It also contains a regimented curriculum of practices with meticulous explanations leading to higher-grade practices. Many of the 'accepted practices and beliefs' of modern occultism will be shown as fake, cliched, and reinvented. For the first time in print, the correct attributions regarding the Book of Tarot are given with an overview to its proper use, correcting its scandalous reinvention in modern times. The student will learn the correct elemental attributions of the cardinal points, will learn the necessity of Qabala and be given the basic Qabalistic knowledge that all Neophytes must possess, and will learn its true history, for it's not Hebrew in origin. The student will learn how to breathe in an occult manner, will learn the secrets of chakras and sex, and will learn to put down the pain and disillusionment caused by external misconceptions, society, and religion. Paenitere gives the student real occult practices to garner real, measurable results and includes a valuable booklist for further study.
