From the Foreword by Chic and Tabatha Cicero, Chief Adepts of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn:
Many practitioners who have truly and sincerely worked through the system in all its various aspects have found the Golden Dawn tradition to be quite effective in accomplishing what it undertakes to accomplish and providing the aspirant with this core expression of Divine Truth that is so sought after. It is the illuminating ethos of the Golden Dawn - this core transcendent expression of divinity accessible through study and ritual work in the order system - that is the subject of the Hidden Treasures of the Golden Dawn.
With an eloquence reminiscent of Regardie, Fortune and other writers of a more poetic era, Rick Falconer communicates the essential position that this holy inner spark occupies in the Golden Dawn's process of spiritual alchemy. In Volume One, We call thee to the Gentle Light; the author proves once again that the Golden Dawn is no relic of an out-dated era. Quite the contrary in fact, for the spiritual enrichment embraced by the system is perennial, enduring and badly needed in these troubling times.
Written a little differently, they do not form a historical account, nor will you find in their context the nature of an academic discourse. This is where these volumes come into their own; written for you from within the system itself as an expression of the spirit for the spirit - your spirit, that they will find you their equal as a companion if you will allow.
Complimentary to the teachings within the system and such works as Regardie’s Golden Dawn and the Cicero’s Self Initiation Manual, they unravel and unveil many a paradox along their way, as you journey through an experiential mystical alchemical infusion.
The opportunity is thus upon you through the Great Work to banish the façade of your intellect by continually invoking understanding toward a deeper insight. To disclose the truths to yourself and realise why you are no beginner. As you find yourself to be the unfurling of a rose you have deep down always known yourself to be.
