One Year Manual by Israel Regardie
There is an awful tendency in occult literature to go on and on for hundreds of pages without saying much of anything of use. It is short the editions in my possession going to 70 pages, plus preface and suggested reading listby design, and wastes not a single word on nonessentials. The goal is simple: The benefits are manifold and include a greater degree of self-awareness, Zen-like mindfulness, and the gradual relaxation of physical tension. The second step concerns a method of very deep physical relaxation.
In addition to deepending relaxation and body awareness, the student also learns to use this technique for healing simple physical ailments and complementing medical treatments for more intense illnesses. It is worth manyal that these two exercises also tend to produce a meditative state, which stands the student in good stead for more manul training systems.
The third step, breath yeaf, depeens the meditative state and further enhances physical and emotional relaxation.
Just as importantly, we learn through breath to regardue our relationship with the vital energy which exists and moves around and through us. What is generally the first step in contemplative and meditative practices, mental awareness, is the subject of step four. This is quite simply quietly and nonjudgmentally observing the flow of your own thoughts.
Expanding on the previous step, step five introduces the student to mental concentration, and deeper meditation, by way of mantra repetition. Eegardie second, more active, portion of the year is opened in step six with the training and strengthening of the will. Do to the discipline and concentration developed over the past few months, this exercise will likely come easily.
Still, it is the first time in this programme that the student exerts any active volition as opposed to more or less passively experiencing herself. Step seven changes the nature of the work dramatically by introducing the daily practice of the Rose Cross Ritual. While Regardie does not state it implicitly, this ritual has some profound effects for the careful student.
This ritual acts as a very intense prayer, and can really exalt and humble the student. While profoundly different on the surface, these final steps are the perfect culmination to the training year in that they entail finding and employing personalized, emotionally and intellectually engaging methods of prayer and meditation.
These final chapters also include words of immense wisdom and beauty as well as encouragement.

They are alone worth the cost of the book even to the most advanced student. While definitely based in the Hermetic and Kabbalistic systems and lne, there is nothing in this book which cannot be easily adapted for training a new student in nearly any magic-mystical system.
