UNVEILED: Secret Chiefs Transmit Original Inner Order Advanced Golden Dawn Teachings!

A Golden Dawn Temple
In recent years, our order, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, the outer order of the Rosicrucian Order of Alpha et Omega®, has grown into the largest and most successful Golden Dawn order in the world. This is primarily because, in 2002, our order reestablished contact with the Secret Chiefs of the Third Order.

In 1891, S.L. MacGregor Mathers had established contact with this same, hidden continental order of Hermetic and Rosicrucian Masters that he called the Secret Chiefs of the Third Order. At that time, the Secret Chiefs transmitted to Mathers the first installment of the curriculum for the Golden Dawn's forthcoming Second Order. Armed with this material, Mathers founded the RR et AC in 1892.

Sadly, before Mathers ever received from the Secret Chiefs the rest of the curriculum of Golden Dawn's magical system for the higher Inner Order grades of Adeptus Major (6=5) and Adeptus Exemptus (7=4), the Golden Dawn erupted in schism and Aleister Crowley treacherously published the beginner's magic of the (5=6) Adeptus Minor grade.

Due to the profanation through publication by Crowley of the beginner's level of the Golden Dawn magical system, the Secret Chiefs refused to transmit to Mathers the rest of the Second Order curriculum. This resulted in the Golden Dawn remaining an incomplete, truncated system for over a Century.

In 2002, as a sign of good faith, the Secret Chiefs transmitted to the Rosicrucian Order of Alpha et Omega the initiation rituals and basic curriculum, originally intended for the Third Order of the original Golden Dawn.

Today, in order to heal the wounds inflicted on the Golden Dawn tradition by profanation from Crowley and Regardie, the Secret Chiefs are finally transmitting the rest of the Inner Order magical curriculum, (6=5) Adeptus Major and (7=4) Adeptus Exemptus, that Mathers was prevented from receiving due to the 1903 schism and to the profanation by Crowley.

As all of this remains oath bound material, there is very little that I may say in public about it. I have been authorized to say this much, however.

As proof of the advanced Second Order transmission, I offer one small example of how the Adeptus Major (6=5) and Adeptus Exemptus (7=4) material completes the (5=6) Adeptus Minor material profaned by Crowley and Regardie. Let us consider the Golden Dawn's use of the magical squares originally published by Cornelius Agrippa in Three Books on Occult Philosophy.

The Golden Dawn's (5=6) Adeptus Minor grade does not really add much of interest to the knowledge of the magick of magical squares beyond that published by Agrippa. The mere advanced (6=5) Adeptus Major and (7=4) Adeptus Exemptus grade curriculum, however, teaches how each Adept can construct their own magical squares, as well as the deeper secrets of the squares publlshed by Agrippa.

For example, until my publishing this article, no one in the entire esoteric community has known that the squares published by Agrippa and included in the Golden Dawn's (5=6) Adeptus Minor grade curriculum are not the real squares, but are only encrypted versions, and only the tip of the iceburg of a vast, incredible system of theurgy that unlocks untold numbers of parallel dimensions on the inner planes, ultimately culminating in union with the Divine at the center of the square, properly understood as a three dimensional cube.

Until this article, no one has understood either what the "planetary seals" published by Agrippa really are, when in fact, they are keys to "unseal" the "sealed" squares in order to reveal the true, unencrypted magic squares, and to unleash the true magick and full power of the system.

Once unlocked with the proper initiatic keys, these magical squares reveal to the advanced Adept the entire, secret magical hierarchy of entities of the Golden Dawn system of magical squares, that remain safely encrypted from those who would seek cheap notoriety by publishing the secret names and sigils of the true, servient spirits of Agrippa's squares.

Please note that the Golden Dawn's advanced Second Order teachings on the vast theurgical system occulted behind the encrypted version of the magic squares published by Agrippa and included in the published Golden Dawn material, is but one small example to show how the Golden Dawn (6=5) Adeptus Major and (7=4) Adeptus Exemptus material completes the published Golden Dawn (5=6) Adeptus Minor material. There are many such ways that the higher grades complete the published material, although at this juncture I am only permitted to draw attention to this one example, since all of the advanced Second Order teachings beyond Adeptus Minor (5=6) remain unpublished and unprofaned, oath bound material.

Let it be known that the Rosicrucian Order of Alpha et Omega does not want to dominate any other order. On the contrary, we want to see the entire Golden Dawn community continue to grow in the direction that was originally intended for the Golden Dawn by the Secret Chiefs of the Third Order. We therefore have no problem with sharing the teachings of the higher grades beyond (5=6) Adeptus Minor with Inner Order Adepts from Golden Dawn orders and temples other than the AO.

Please understand, however, that we must be extremely careful about whom we share this unprofaned material with, as I am personally accountable to ensure that this material will not be profaned like the (5=6) Adeptus Minor material was by Crowley. To qualify, therefore, you must have not only been physically initiated as a (5=6) Adpetus Minor, but you must prove yourself trustworthy, be willing to swear to keep the advanced grade material secret, and you must actually keep your word as well.

Unfortunately, there are individuals in our Golden Dawn community who would stop at nothing in order to gain cheap notoriety. These individuals would publish anything they can get their hands on just for cheap fame. And by this, they prove that they are not true initiates, because initiatic secrecy has at all times been considered necessary not as a question of power, but rather as a question of sacredness. The Divine Science should never be profaned.

Sadly, Nick Farrell recently proved that the spirit of treachery of Aleister Crowley is alive and well, by senselessly profaning through publication the Mathers' sacred recension of the Alpha et Omega rituals, together with some hitherto minor, yet sacred nonetheless (5=6) Adeptus Minor A.O. documents. Like Crowley before him, Farrell has therefore proven himself untrustworthy with anything beyond well known and published material. Thus, by his own hand, Frater Farrell has forever blocked his initiatic progress at the (5=6) Adeptus Minor level of published, well known material.

Adepti of all temples and orders of the Golden Dawn community!

What is it that you are really interested in? 

Is cheap notoriety truly all you want? 

Or are you not more interested in spiritual development? 

Do you really want to remain spiritually stuck forever at the (5=6) Adeptus Minor level?

Or is your true heart's desire not rather to become "more than human" by practicing the complete Golden Dawn system of magick and theurgy?

The price of this higher knowledge is nobility of purpose, hard work, and to actually keep sacred the initiatic secrets of the Golden Dawn, as have all true and faithful Hermetic and Rosicrucian Adepts of all centuries have that have come before us.

Adepts from any Golden Dawn order or temple interested in advanced training in the Golden Dawn system magick and theurgy for the Grades beyond the well known, published material of the (5=6) Adeptus Minor grade are invited to contact me discreetly using the contact link at the Golden Dawn website here.

  1. the Golden Dawn erupted in schism and Aleister Crowley treacherously published the beginner's magic of the (5=6) Adeptus Minor grade.

    Out of curiosity, is there an earlier publication of the GD material by Crowley that I'm unaware of? I'm curious because I'm familiar with his publication of the material in The Equinox but that was in 1909, almost a decade after the London revolt. From the quoted section it sounds like you're talking about two events that happened around the same time.

  2. Extremely fascinating!

  3. Looks like you are more focused on the hiding of the alleged knowledge by means of oath bound secrecy then actually trying to advance your spiritual development, as you've put it. I do not perceive pettiness and stringiness being spiritually advance qualities. Why not release the material to the public freely and then differentiate yourself by teaching this material as you perceive intended? That way you end all wars and gain credit.

  4. Now it begins until you rightfully hand over what has been stolen to you through dirty hands, and until such time there will be no rest, you shall feel no comfort, until Justice stand over you there will not cease the darkness which haunts your dreams, this shall be your truth. Forked tongues are your words and Satan is your master. You are the puppet and the father of all lies inhabits your soul. Controlled by shadow and Vanity the dukes of the Edomite kings are your rulers. Ancient darkness woven of the most sinister kind is your light. Festering unrest which swallows you whole has caused you loss of sight, wandering aimlessly to the land of woe and gnashings of teeth. Stop now with repentence and humility and your shall be lead into truth but if you shall not then fate you have chosen and those you call your followers shall be upon your head.

    You really ought to remember to take your antidepressant meds more regularly, Robert!

    Your coming with the old tired line about there being no legitimate reason for initiatic secrecy beyond personal power of Chiefs is really old news. We have already covered this OVER and OVER. There is no need to bore our readers by going beating that long dead horse yet once again.

    I would suggest you read all of the articles on the subject archived on this blog. Here is just one such article:

  7. Mr Griffin.

    It is somewhat bewildering to learn that there are other keys to the esoteric system of the golden dawn. Not only is it a boon to occultists but also a thorn. Without being able to piece together an entire system I believe the golden dawn will have created yet another privilidged section of adepts. This is exactly what was happening when Regardie left the Stella Mautina temple. I guess for the community this is good in a way because the methods of Evocation are finally being made available. Though im pretty sure all that will be presented is some kind of Arconic force which though powerful doesn't really provide much or an experience of Gnosis. Though its also speculation because im not in possession of your "advanced material" either. I doubt that it is more advanced than the Elus Cohen material of Martinez Pasqually though. Pasqually was said to be the greatest Thergical Magician ever! That is a grand title, and since well, Pasqually was before the adepts of the GD im pretty sure I can infer from other systems where the material is coming from. But as you well know there is no way to prove it. I hope fate would allow someday that I could be in your sacred circle and experience the wonders of the Table . Until then, thanks for all the great updates on the Golden Dawn Tradition

    Cor Meum Lucidum

  8. I personally hope that you DO possess those secrets you claim to hold dear and that there really IS an Internal College of Adpets on the Continental Europe. You have to remember that there is a new era of Occultists entering this World. They will be the ones looking and reading your Blogs, while having to decipher who has the correct teachings and what not. You need to keep in mind the early 20 something year olds who read your blogs and want true initiation. The Occult World we're entering today is vastly different from times past. When the truth comes out about what has been hidden in the Hermetic Societies, and what Secret Societies have known for thousands of years our World will be a better place. The only knowledge which should permanently be non-profaned is the actual Secrets that we all desire to possess. This path should be walked with care and the Spiritual Development of the Adepts of the future are in your hand! There will come a day when the Public looks to these Societies for answers to the Secrets of the Universe. You don't want to have a bad rhap when this happens because it is going to happen regardless. Due to the TIMES that we are living in, there will be more and more an Occult Surge as the Industrial Revolution comes to an end and the Information Age takes off in full swing.

  9. Care Frater Frater Cor Meum Lucidum,

    I have studied the Elus Cohen material at length and concur that it is magically fascinating. Moreover, Martinism had the wisdom to create several paths according to the natural disposition of the candidate.

    The Golden Dawn, however, is a horse of a different color. There are certain inherent flaws in the system that will need to be corrected in the Alpha et Omega as we move forward. We as an order are lucky as we are not merely Golden Dawn. We are AO. This gives us great latitude and flexibility to make more and more advanced material available to aspirants.

  10. I agree with anonymous,as one of those 20 something young Occultists that read this blog.
    the responsibility you hold is great.and now more then ever is the time to remember that.but we are all in this together,asking the questions,it would be dangerous to assume there is a answer that someone holds.for this answers always change.

  11. I can't see the point.. For magic is for the few, not the many. And for the young people seeking illumination, there are paths, Yoga, Seicho-no-ie, etc., all leading to illumination by less strenuos paths. Magic is a path where angels walk carefully. Its kind of post graduation in mysticism. Why spend years studying symbols, angels, rituals, gematria, when you can get light just by seating and meditating? I say this because I see magick as a very difficult path, a dangerous path. So, I believe that any 20 something guy will have to pass a long way before getting to Adeptus Major and so on, and also, after all, every one of us has to deal with the dark night of the soul and feel the extreme confusion about what path to take. A buddhist master said: the greater the doubt, greater the illumination. No doubts, no illumination. Also, Golden Dawn does not forbid one of practicing other paths. And I dont think they will be mislead by Mr. Griffin. By all that I've seen, he sounds honest and direct. He seems to have contacts, and a body of knowledge other GD orders do not seem to possess. And, by the way, this Golden Dawn here is the less expensive of all, no monthly charges, etc. It does not seem to be a scam.

    Congratulations Mr. Griffin.

    I hope to begin studying in this GD next month, August, and would like to get in touch with you sir, because I live in Brazil and although I think there's a temple here in São Paulo, I would like to ask some questions about the physical initiation and also offer my help as a translator of texts into Portuguese. How to send a private email?
    Thank you so much for being available. This is important, for 20 somethings or older people:-)
