With humility, humor, and conviction, Butler conveys an extensive knowledge of the occult mysteries, including ritual and ceremonial magic, the awakening of kundalini energy, and the path of the qabalistic tree of life. The overriding theme of his lectures concerns regeneration of the personality and the relinquishing of the false ego through control of one’s mental and emotional reactions.
One of the world's great occultists, W. E. Butler (1898-1978) studied in India among Hindu spiritual teachers and with the renowned mystic Annie Besant. In England he worked closely with Dion Fortune in the Society of the Inner Light. He is the author of How to Read the Aura and Practice Psychometry, Telepathy, and Clairvoyance and Lords of Light.
