The Arthurian legend is unique it encapsulates everything from ancient pagan traditions to the heights of medieval transcendental mysticism. Gareth Knight treats this body of legend as a living magical system that encompasses both ancient and modern beliefs surrounding the Arthurian cycle. His King Arthur is a living contemporary archetype, not an ancient dead king. He shows how the Arthurian legend may be structured into a workable mystery system, comprised of three primary grades of attainment. The first is the grade of the Powers of Arthur of loyalty, dedication and service, enshrined in concepts of chivalry. Second is the grade of the Powers of Merlin, bringing knowledge of the invisible forces that are true roots of causation within the material world. The final grade is of the Powers of Guenevere, for those who work with power - power which is based upon the forces of polarity within the aura. Knight concludes with an explanation of the Greater Mysteries, which opens awareness to the higher spiritual forces. Learn to use the secrets of the Arthurian tradition in your own life!
