About this title


To Dion Fortune, occultism is a sacred science practiced by initiates people who have been inducted into the mysteries of the cosmos. But there are many truths of this ancient lore that uninitiated but intelligent people can use as well. That is the purpose of this book to show how the ideas and precepts of esoteric study can be applied profitably to the daily work of becoming a better human being. Practical Occultism in Daily Life is a sensible guide to understanding and developing intuitive powers, remembering the lessons of past lives, working out karma, and learning to create and attract opportunities to achieve our goals. It teaches us to align ourself with the vast possibilities of an enlightened life.

About the Author:

Dion Fortune is the pen name of Violet Firth, one of the most mysterious and significant figures of the British esoteric tradition of the early twentieth century. Born in Llandudno, Wales, in 1890, she exhibited strong psychic tendencies even as a child. She decided at an early age to pursue a career in nursing, which led her to an interest in human psychology. She became an early Freudian, but soon saw the limitations of psychoanalysis and pursued the deeper implications of human psychology in occult and magical traditions. Raised on Christian Science, she gravitated first toward Theosophy and then to the Order of the Golden Dawn, where she became an initiate and received the hieratic name of Deo Non Fortuna, which eventually became her pen name, Dion Fortune. In 1922, she formed her own esoteric society, The Society of the Inner Light. Dion Fortune s legacy is her writings, both fiction and nonfiction. In nonfiction, her books Psychic Self-Defence, The Mystical Qabalah, Through the Gates of Death, and Esoteric Philosophy of Love and Marriage still stand, 75 years later, as the premier statements on their respective subjects. But it is in her fiction that she made her greatest contribution, probing depths of the human mind and character that conventional psychology still has not discovered or understood. She was married to, and divorced from, T. Penry Evans, M.D. She died in London in January, 1946.
