(h)Auroræ is, functions as, an occult text; it is technically not a book ‘about’ the occult. The distinction is important here: the whole concept, presentation, and perennial philosophy underlying the book aim at provoking a mystical experience and stimulating the Divine Inspiration of the reader, so that they, in turn, become Inspiration.
This manuscript is a mystifying, albeit utterly profound journey. Part ontological synthesis, philosophical rambling, magickal diary, visual grimoire, mystical poetry, revelatory/individuation process, and alchemical vessel of expression, the book exists under the umbrella of what the author refers to as Neoteric Heterodoxy. First and foremost, however, (h)Auroræ exists as an act of eternal remembrance.
“This alchemical treatise walks us through a startling expression of emotive gnosis… (h)Auroræ seeks beyond and above the all-too-human condition in order to understand it, and advance it vis-à-vis a sensual Sophianic psychology, witnessed in cogitation. Mind in tandem with vision, incorporates a veiled process of subtle Jungian analysis leading to a Grail quest, of intent to remove the blindfold from the Holy Fool… A work of pilgrimage, conjunction and apotheosis, it directs the reader through pause, anticipation and intake. Sometimes rapturous, sometimes ponderous.”
(~Shani Oates, Afterword, (h)Auroræ)
G. McCaughry writes:
“This Opus Alchymicum is presented in a certain “light” and, at its core, (h)Auroræ is centred on the sempiternal theosophical discourse which sparks anew the Flame of Old within the heart of the predisposed reader, struggling, yet inclined, to separate the subtil from the dross so that we may uncover our inner philosopher’s stone or perfected being.
“‘Tis a work of Agapae, in the purest sense of the words
“This manuscript, far from being a modern-day grimoire by any means, is, primarily, a mystical handbook. A useful resource to have by one’s side upon undertaking an initiatory odyssey on the Path of Exile & Exalt – regardless of which favoured system or tradition the practitioner employs.”
(h)Auroræ is Gabriel McCaughry’s first published manuscript – a tome which correlates directly with Anathema Publishing’s mandate, along with his unique views and methodologies on alchemical book-making. This is very much a continuation in the spirit of his previous contributions to the PILLARS occult periodical (and elsewhere), but within (h)Auroræ, these concepts are fully developed and actualized.
“[(h)Auroræ is] a supreme work of Beauty, in every sense of that aesthetic. A sublime work of Arte, in every sense of that metaphysic. In short, a meditational treatise of transformative alchemy of – and for – the Soul.”
