The Training and Work of The Solo Magician with Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki
Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki is the director of The Servants of The Light (SOL) magical training school. Readers of my book, The Rainbow Machine may be familiar with The Servants of The Light name as I reference SOL in the appendix of the book.
This workshop sets out a personal curriculum of dedicated Mystery work for someone who is largely working alone but possesses a basic understanding of The Mysteries.
- Solo Working with the Elements, and the Kabbalah.
- Setting up a portable Temple.
- Solo Working with the Quarter Powers, God-Forms and Angelics.
- Creating your Solo rituals and path-workings.
- Casting the Sun Circle and Moon Circle.
Led by the director of The Servants of The Light, Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki, this workshop will give an outline on how this kind of work might be attempted. It gives an outline of what needs to be studied, how to study, and the basis of ritual work and above all the importance of bringing the Four Selves Physical, Astral, Mental and Spiritual together, without this, magic can be a very tricky path indeed.
Who is Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki?
From Wikipedia we can learn that:
“Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki (Born 1929) is a British occult author, psychic, and esoteric practitioner. An associate of Walter Ernest Butler, she succeeded him as Director of Studies of the Servants of the Light. […]
During the 1960s, she and her husband Michael Nowicki entered the Fraternity of the Inner Light, an esoteric order founded by occultist Dion Fortune. In 1965 she became associated with Walter Ernest Butler, and with Gareth Knight and the Helios Course in Practical Qabalah which, in 1971, became the foundation of Servants of the Light School. In 1976, when Butler retired, Ashcroft-Nowicki became Director of Studies of the SOL, a position she holds to this day.
Perhaps her most important contribution to modern occultism has been her popularization of pathworking as a training tool for the study of the Qabalah.”
