Advanced Sex Magic: The Hanging Mystery Initiation
"The English publication of the works of Maria de Naglowska is an enormous step in making the elusive information on sexual magic available to a new generation of readers."
- Hans Thomas Haki, author of Eranos: An Alternative Intellectual History of the Twentieth Century and co-editor of Gnostika
Available for the first time in English, Advanced Sex Magic illuminates the revolutionary occult teachings of Maria de Naglowska--Russian myst6ic, esoteric high priestess, and self-styled "Satanic Woman" of 1930s Paris. Her religious system, called the Third Term of the Trinity, considered the Holy Spirit (or Wholesome Spirit) to be feminine and taught the importance of sex for the regeneration of the world and the upliftment of humanity.
A complement to her book The Light of Sex, this book on the hanging mystery of initiation details her advanced teachings on the Third Term of the Trinity and the spiritually transformative power of sex and reveals the erotic ritual hanging and other sensory deprivation practices of her magical group, La confrérie de la Fléche d'Or (The Brotherhood of the Golden Arrow). These advanced mystical sexual practices were required for initiation into the brotherhood, and, as Naglowska shows, only through the union of the masculine and the feminine can we bring about a reconciliation of the light and dark forces in nature.
MARIA DE NAGLOWSKA (1883-1936), also known as the Sophiale de Montparnasse, was a Russian occultist, mystic, and founder of the Brotherhood of the Golden Arrow. Her conferences in Paris in the 1930s were attended by many now famous avant-garde and notorious writers and artists, such as Julius Evola, Man Ray, and André Breton. She is also known for her translation of P.B. Randolph's Magia Sexualis, the classic occult text that has survived only through her translation. Donald Traxler is both a translator and student of the occult. He lives in Martinez, California.
