Mago-Hermetic Equipoise
and the Hermetic Soul Mirror

Johannes von Hohenstätten

116 pages; softcover 


My friend, Peter Windsheimer, gave me the idea to write a general summary in reference to the magical equilibrium, utilizing various older and more modern sources of information on that subject. Some intriguing information has been written on the subject, but much of it is hidden in plain sight. Franz Bardon detailed the importance of attaining a well-balanced character in his colossal and fundamental work Initiation into Hermetics. Bardon frequently states that the hermetic student will fail without character equipoise.

This book summarizes the mago-hermetic equilibrium and gives some tips for various exercises. Since the fluids, elements, and temperaments are associated with this subject, I briefly touch upon them, and I hope to encourage the seeker to consider his or her soul mirror.
