Llewellyn Worldwide – Low Magick: Product Summary
Although this book is dealing with ‘low magick’ the stuff that you are most likely to be warned not to dabble with! It really drives h I have a confession to make It really drives home that DuQuette is an experimenter – if you tell him that something dkquette or shouldn’t be done, he is going to set about finding out WHY. This is what makes llw such a trailblazer in his field. If everyone sat back and followed the ‘don’t do it’ rules, we still wouldn’t be eating tomatoes!
My personal highlight was the invoking of all the spirits of a Tarot deck into the deck in a weekend. It reminded me of some of my early spiritual ‘experiments’ and I am sure far more people than would care to admit it have undertaken just as crazy things! May 29, Anthony rated it it was amazing. Lon is like an old friend. His books and words have been my constant companion for over two decades. This is a book of stories woven from experience by a holy man who really walks the walk and talks very entertaining talk.
Jun 05, Larissa rated it really liked it. Low Magick is an account of Lon Milo DuQuette’s adventures and misadventures as a practicing mavick. He states early on that he is uncomfortable with the usual definitions given for high and low magick. DuQuette is a clear writer, with a lot of wit and enough personally embarrassing tales to make maglck might otherwise be dry, step by step descriptions of duuquette, truly entertaining.

He starts with his downfalls in his early days of magic and crowns the story with his exorcism of a catholic school where despite his years of experience, he is still nearly duped by the demon. He makes a point of explaining the magic theory involved in his rituals so even if the reader is not familiar with Enochian Goetia, Quaballah, astrology or tarot, it is possible to follow the story. I would say that the intent of this book is to explain his philosophy of magic; “It is not the magick which is good or evil, or high or low-it is the magician.
Jan 19, David Mcangus rated it really liked it Shelves: It also served as a very good explanation of magick in general, in particular to answer the question: This explanation of magick to be a practical tool to evolve one’s psyche I felt to be particularly impressive. I do however think the book could have been slightly longer as it didn’t seemto drag at any point and I imagine Lon has a great many stories which cou While Low Magick was, as I expected, very funny and recalled My Life with the Spirits.
I do however think the book could have been slightly longer as it didn’t seemto drag at any point and I imagine Lon has a great many stories which could be usefully applied to explain the subject further. Nov 30, Tim rated it it was amazing Shelves: So far, Lon has explained concepts that I was only vaguely aware of and has answered questions that I have had, but did not know how to formulate them. I am at the beginning of the second chapter and I anticipate an immediate second reading after the entire book is finished.
Low Magick is not inferior to High Magick.
Low Magick by Lon Milo DuQuette | John Beckett
A must read, this will be one that I will read every year. Sep 01, Sara rated it really liked it. I wish more books on magic were written like this one. Lon Milo Duquette teaches principles in his stories with his usual sense of humor and straightforwardness. Jun 07, Pixelina rated it it was amazing Shelves: It’s a re-read cause I got a mind like a sieve.
Mar 01, Dav8d rated it really liked it. More philosophical than practical, Duquette is still engaging in this very enjoyable book. Mar 05, Xochitl rated it it was amazing. I Love this book. I was already well acquainted with magick, ritual, and the overall topics of this book, but reading this was excellent for pulling my ass out of my head or was it the other way around?
It is also a great book to recommend to someone who is completely new to magick or who has a held belief that “low magick” is useless. Mar 23, Justin rated it really liked it Shelves: On the other hand, I am not sure how much I got out of it. Sep 14, Michael Borge rated it it was amazing. It also helps to see that not all magick is ment to be serious. Jan 04, Mortalform rated it really liked it Shelves: In those altered states we not only realize the oneness of the supreme consciousness, we become the oneness of the supreme consciousness.
Ultimatly, this transcendent state is our true and natural state of being, our true self; it is who we really are. It is our ‘heaven where we dwell when we “There is no truth, only stories. It is our ‘heaven where we dwell when we have fufiled our adventures pretending we are somehow disconnected from the supreme consciousness. In fact, our brains, our bodies, our world, even time and space are manifestations and aspects of the mind. Because Nuit’s expansion the infinite ‘out’ and Hadit’s contraction the infinite ‘in’ are both infinitely everywhere, so too must be their points of contact.
This infinite contact creates Ra-Hoor-Khuit, a field of operation in which the universe can manifest. The magickal ritual is merely the seal that grounds the current of the magician’s will and completes the circuitry on all planes. Dec 25, John Banner rated it really liked it Shelves: I won’t claim that this is Lon’s best book ever, but it continues in his tradition of imparting magical wisdom in a fun and entertaining fashion.
There are many valuable lessons that can be learned from this book and through his entertaining style, he makes them available to those innumerable people who have difficulty with the “traditional magical literature,” which many people find very dry and hard to engage with. Over all, well worth the read but make sure that you sample his other works too. Jan 14, Constantin rated it really liked it Shelves: And memoirs are not my thing at all.
Although, objectively, it is well written and very well presented. Very “lively” I could say for being a memoir, and it gives some good information theoretical and practical. It does recycle concepts that exist in other books, but mostly, it is providing a kind of different point of view on things. Good read to get some food for thought, but unfortunately nothing to add to Mixed feelings.
Review: Low Magick By Lon Milo DuQuette
Good read to get some food for thought, but unfortunately nothing to add to “actual knowledge” regarding magicj occult. Aug 23, Edric Unsane rated it liked it Shelves: There is lots of useful information and experiences in Low Magick.
The biggest problem that I had with this book is how the author comes off as a somewhat self-absorbed asshole, which was not necessarily a bad thing, but wasn’t all that great either. While reading Low Magick, I could see myself tackling some of the author’s experiences differently, especially when it came down to how he treated the people in those dquette. I think Low Magick is worth a read to those interested in the occult, There is lots of useful information and experiences in Low Magick.
I think Low Magick is worth a read to those interested in the occult, but I would recommend that the reader employ some critical thinking. Jan 18, Tim rated it liked it Shelves: I love Lon Milo DuQuette.
His books on magick are the most entertaining and readable books ever. He takes a subject that is treated, at best dubiously, and at worst fearfully, and makes it funny and philosophical and interesting and important.
If you’ve always bee interested in magick, but are wary of picking up an ancient and worm-eaten scroll, this is a good place to start. Sep 23, Kimberly Lohr rated it really liked it.
