The Qabalah of 50 Gates by Steven Ashe

With a definitive introduction by the author, The Qabalah of 50 Gates delves into the lore of the internal journey of the initiate along the lines of the Yetzirahtic story telling tradition, incorporating lore from the mythos-cycle of Golden Dawn Hermetics, Aleister Crowley's 'Thelema' and the mercurial methodology of Gurdjieff. This book has its roots in the Golden Dawn tradition of Magick and Alchemy, drawing upon the legends of the mediaeval alchemic-philosophers, the infinity-mathematics of Georg Cantor, the Tantric Qabalah of Aleister Crowley. It is a tour de force of parables describing the experience of each of the 50 Gates of the Qabalah which combine to present a puzzle within an enigma within a mystery. A new introduction by the author explains the symbolism featuring throughout the work.
