Description


Suitable for both beginners and advanced practitioners, A Theurgist's Book of Hours is an essential addition to the library of anyone interested in developing or deepening their connection with the divine via daily praxis. This fascinating and unique work builds on the foundations laid by author Jeffrey S. Kupperman in his previous book Living Theurgy (Avalonia 2014) but also can be used independently, as it provides both the theoretical knowledge and the practical guidance needed to start incorporating theurgical prayer into your ritual practice.


While these teachings provide a structured framework which draws primarily upon the Neoplatonic teachings of Iamblichus, Proclus, Pseudo-Dionysius and the lunar/solar calendar reforms of Plethon they are eminently adaptable and accessible to practitioners of any tradition which seeks direct connection and union with the divine, including Paganism, Christianity and Jewish Mysticism. In addition to detailed calendars, this unprecedented work provides all you need to form your own liturgy, including prayers, hymns and extracts from significant writings such as the Chaldean Oracles and the Greek Magical Papyri.


The resulting Book of Hours is truly one of a kind, and though its roots are ancient, its applications are a valuable addition to a living tradition that evolves along with us all. Theurgy is a growing area of interest for the modern esoteric practitioner and this book will prove itself indispensable to all who seek divine connection.


"In brief, prayer nurtures the mind, makes us more receptive to divine beings, habituates us to the otherwise potentially lethal divine light, perfects our ability to contact the gods, uplifts our minds to those of the gods, links us to them, purifies our pneumatic vehicle, brings out the divine element in the human soul, and makes us "the familiar consorts of the gods." Prayer is so important that 'no sacred act can take place' without it".

- Jeffrey Kupperman, A Theurgist's Book of Hours
