The textbook for the Order's training program is The Celtic Golden Dawn by John Michael Greer:
“A century ago, groups descending from the famed Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn fused the occult lore of the Western magical tradition with the nature spirituality of the Druid Revival. They invoked Pagan Celtic powers instead of Judeo-Christian names and symbols. Respected occult author and archdruid John Michael Greer has recreated a complete magical system based on the Celtic Golden Dawn traditions. This new book provides students with a complete curriculum of Druidical magic and occult wisdom, including training in ceremonial magic, meditation, pathworking, divination, geomancy, and herbal alchemy, allowing self-initiation into the three degrees of Ovate, Bard, and Druid. It features spectacular magical techniques for such things as invisibility, etheric shapeshifting, and conjuring spirits.” —from the Llewellyn website

“Devised by a famous Welsh poet, the Bardic alphabet called Coelbren has always seemed to hold great promise. But as long as nobody knew how to use the system for divination, it remained simply a relic of a bygone era. In The Coelbren Alphabet, John Michael Greer reveals the secrets of this esoteric alphabet, restoring the Coelbren to its rightful place as a powerful magical tool. Unlike the Ogham or runes, the Coelbren letters take their meaning directly from the sounds they represent. Providing the name, Welsh keyword, meaning, symbolism, pronunciation, and divinatory interpretation of each letter, this book shows how to use this unique system for divination and magic. You will also discover sample readings, scrying and meditation techniques, and tips for making your own Coelbren set. ” —from the Llewellyn website
“Natural magic is the ancient and powerful art of using material substances—herbs, stones, incenses, oils, and much more—to tap into the hidden magical powers of nature, transforming your surroundings and yourself.Not just a cookbook of spells, The Encyclopedia of Natural Magic provides an introduction to the philosophy and ways of thought underlying this system. It also gives detailed information on 176 different herbs, trees, stones, metals, oils, incenses, and other substances, and offers countless ways to put them to magical use. With this book and a visit to your local herb store, rock shop, or your backyard garden, you’re ready to enter the world of natural magic. ” —from the Llewellyn website
