What is Equipoise?
Equipoise is a book about magical equilibrium that was created by collecting together essays and poems on the subject written by a diverse array of Bardonist writers. The book is divided into three parts.
- Understanding Magical Equilibrium
- Establishing Magical Equilibrium
Establishing magical equilibrium is the astral work of Step 2. This work is preceded by the astral work of Step 1, which consists of introspection. The first part of the book discusses introspection and how it can help aspiring magicians acquire the self-knowledge they need in order to wisely and intelligently shape themselves into more balanced individuals.
The second part of the book discusses the nature of magical equilibrium. Different people have different points of view on what exactly magical equilibrium is, and the pieces in this part explore some of those points of view. You can’t establish magical equilibrium if you don’t know what magical equilibrium is. Hopefully, those with a shaky understanding of magical equilibrium will find their understanding becoming more solid as they read through this part of the book.
The third part of the book discusses the process of establishing magical equilibrium. It covers specific techniques, exercises, and strategies the Bardonist on Step 2 can use to rid himself of his imbalances and become the balanced person he was always meant to be.
All profits from the book will be donated to the Best Friends Animal Society.
Establishing magical equilibrium, a task assigned to the Bardonist in the early stages of his training, often seems to be a daunting endeavor. With the publication of this book, future students of the Bardon system can rest easier knowing they have access to the insights of those who have walked the path before them. Contained within this volume, readers will find helpful and interesting information concerning various topics related to the astral work of Steps 1 and 2, including:
