I have a confession to make The first thing I will be doing after reading this book is checking out the back catalogue. DuQuette's style of writing is incredibly accessible and entertaining.
Although this book is dealing with 'low magick' the stuff that you are most likely to be warned not to dabble with! It really drives h I have a confession to make It really drives home that DuQuette is an experimenter - if you tell him that something can't or shouldn't be done, he is going to set about finding out WHY.
This is what makes him such a trailblazer in his field. If everyone sat back and followed the 'don't do it' rules, we still wouldn't be eating tomatoes! My personal highlight was the invoking of all the spirits of a Tarot deck into the deck in a weekend. It reminded me of some of my early spiritual 'experiments' and I am sure far more people than would care to admit it have undertaken just as crazy things!

Jun 05, Larissa rated it really liked it. Low Magick is an account of Lon Milo DuQuette's adventures and misadventures as a practicing magician. He states early on that he is uncomfortable with the usual definitions given for high and low magick. DuQuette is a clear writer, with a lot of wit and enough personally embarrassing tales to make what might otherwise be dry, step by step descriptions of rituals, truly entertaining.
He starts with his downfalls in his early days of magic and crowns the story with his exorcism of a catholic scho Low Magick is an account of Lon Milo DuQuette's adventures and misadventures as a practicing magician. He starts with his downfalls in his early days of magic and crowns the story with his exorcism of a catholic school where despite his years of experience, he is still nearly duped by the demon.
He makes a point of explaining the magic theory involved in his rituals so even if the reader is not familiar with Enochian Goetia, Quaballah, astrology or tarot, it is possible to follow the story. I would say that the intent of this book is to explain his philosophy of magic; "It is not the magick which is good or evil, or high or low-it is the magician. Jan 19, David Mcangus rated it really liked it Shelves: funny-haha , occultism.
It also served as a very good explanation of magick in general, in particular to answer the question: why should we be evoking spirits into a triangle? This explanation of magick to be a practical tool to evolve one's psyche I felt to be particularly impressive. I do however think the book could have been slightly longer as it didn't seemto drag at any point and I imagine Lon has a great many stories which cou While Low Magick was, as I expected, very funny and recalled My Life with the Spirits.
I do however think the book could have been slightly longer as it didn't seemto drag at any point and I imagine Lon has a great many stories which could be usefully applied to explain the subject further.
Nov 30, Tim rated it it was amazing Shelves: occult-magick. So far, Lon has explained concepts that I was only vaguely aware of and has answered questions that I have had, but did not know how to formulate them. I am at the beginning of the second chapter and I anticipate an immediate second reading after the entire book is finished.
Key concept: Low Magick is not inferior to High Magick. A must read, this will be one that I will read every year. Sep 01, Sara rated it really liked it. I wish more books on magic were written like this one. Lon Milo Duquette teaches principles in his stories with his usual sense of humor and straightforwardness.
Jun 07, Pixelina rated it it was amazing Shelves: non-fiction , favorite , spiritual , zread. It's a re-read cause I got a mind like a sieve. Mar 01, Dav8d rated it really liked it. More philosophical than practical, Duquette is still engaging in this very enjoyable book. It was a really fun, interesting and mind-opening read.
The way he describes his adventures as a magician is very entertaining, he does get technical sometimes, but only enough for ignorant people like me to understand what he's talking about.
He has a good sense of humour and more than once I giggled while reading about experiences that would, honestly, scare the shit out of me. Growing up in a christian family I've never heard a single good thing about any magic system at all.
Reading about DuQuette's view of angels, demons, spirits and supernatural intelligences offers me an entirely new view of the world. The way he describes the interaction between the magician and their own magick is perfectly summed up by the book's subtitle: It's all in your head You just have no idea how big your head is. Whether you are interested in magick, belief systems or spirituality, this is an enjoyable read. Mar 05, Xochitl rated it it was amazing.
I Love this book. I was already well acquainted with magick, ritual, and the overall topics of this book, but reading this was excellent for pulling my ass out of my head or was it the other way around? It is also a great book to recommend to someone who is completely new to magick or who has a held belief that "low magick" is useless.
A great inside look into Lon Duquette's life The book gets five stars because as usual, this book is captivating and attention grabbing as are his other books.
Even if you're not into the esoteric or ceremonial magick specifically, Lon's are definitely entertaining enough to keep your attention throughout the whole book. Dec 18, Lolo rated it it was ok Shelves: spitituality. Not for me. The book is well written by an experienced magician, but it focuses on solomonic magick of demon invocation. Sep 14, Michael Borge rated it it was amazing. It also helps to see that not all magick is ment to be serious.
Mar 23, Justin rated it really liked it Shelves: spirituality. Understandable and spirited. On the other hand, I am not sure how much I got out of it. Aug 26, Aleksandr Lazarev rated it liked it. No financial profit Dec 21, Tjallie Micheaux rated it it was amazing. Even though the tarot development section was very intense, I love Lon Milo's style of writing; it's like listening to a friend cypher while having a cup a coffee.
