The Voudon Gnostic Workbook: Expanded Edition
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
A long-awaited new edition of the seminal text on the spiritual system that is a convergence of Gnosticism and Haitian voodoo, The Voudon Gnostic Workbook is a singular sacred work that is comprehensive in scope--from "how to be a lucky Hoodoo" to how magick and voodoo intersect energetically, to esoteric time travel. Complete with charts and graphs and instructive interdimensional physics, The Voudon Gnostic Workbook is an "object of desire" among students of the occult.
Weiser's long-anticipated republication of this rare text will be an event in the annals of esoteric publishing, as the book itself is somewhat of an "unholy grail." There are listservers devoted to it and much discussion of the mysteries held within its pages. While The Voudon Gnostic Workbook has remained a controversial book considered important for masters of metaphysics, it recently came into popular culture and renewed popularity when Grant Morrison revealed it had been the inspiration for his cult comics The Invisibles, using the cribbed time travel from Bertiaux' s masterwork. Voodoo is not an evil religion and is much misunderstood. It derives from the Dahomean Gods called the "Loa." Esoteric voodoo is actually a highly practical procedure for leading us into making contact with the deepest levels of our being and most ancient modes of consciousness. Michael Bertiaux's Voudon Gnostic Workbook is the most comprehensive and illuminating contemporary book on the subject. Launched out of a correspondence course and series of classes for students and followers of Voudon Gnosticism and the OTO, this seminal text is at once one of the most mysterious and magnificent of all esoteric books.
"Voundoun, popularly referred to as "Voodoo," has held a great mystique for Westerners for centuries--inspiring tantalizing legends of "voodoo dolls," "zombies," and ecstatic possession during wild orgiastic rituals of drumming and dancing. Bizarre depictions of "Voodoo" have featured in many Hollywood movies since Voodoo Woman, a 1957 horror film now considered to be one of the 50 worst films ever made. The ghost of Marie LaVeau, the famous "Voodoo Queen of New Orleans," still haunts the graveyards and bayous of urban myth. But behind the myths and legends have always lurked the deeper Mysteries of an ancient tradition of magic and spirituality rooted in the blood-drenched soil of Western Africa, from which generations of tribal peoples were captured and transported into lives of slavery in the plantations of America and the Caribbean. The fear in which "Voodoo" has been held for centuries attests to its power. This long-awaited grimoire of authentic Voundoun will be a treasured gem in any occult library!"

physical body develop and be strong, but in that world of mind all that is needed is mind-energy because mind is the only being in that world. So the spirits bring to us this power or mind-energy and this helps us to develop and become more able to work with them, communicate with them and to understand them. This is what mind-power development is actually. Now there are four methods which we accept here in Lucky Hoodoo for the development of mind-power. These are all successful methods and can
cause the power to leave the dice and then you will have to have the dice made magickal all over again. So, remember to keep the dice on the altar in a special way and never use them in a way for which they were not intended. This is important if you want to hold the power of the spirits in your life, you have got to keep the special objects in a sacred way. That is not for any other purpose but for the spiritual purpose for which they were dedicated to the spirits. Now, in any race or any

For example, we can state that the Masters operate on the level of the subconscious mind, the Loas at the level of the unconscious mind, and the Zothyrian demi-gods and other magickal deities operate at the level of the superconscious mind, because they are connected with the future of magickal energy and its gnosis. However, each student is connected to these beings by means of membership in our gnosis. At the

The candidate must cause the system to notice his energy field. When this happens, of course, the system can operate. However, the system can only operate with a like-type of energy field. The observer might add that this appears to resemble the process in physics where one energy field causes the reactions of another.
this is achieved entirely by means of magickal initiation and by magickal transformation of energy. We can see some insight, however, in that the science of Vudotronics is entirely a development out of 156 the influence of Uranus upon the field of Esoteric Voudoa Consequently, the magician will work to develop both the gnosis of The White City of the Sun, i.e., the Divine Sun, and the esoteric dimension of pure being and cosmic energy, which finds expression in the Vilie-aux-Champs of the
