No, it’s not. It’s the Dark Pathworkings from NAOS that you’re thinking of. The 21 Paths of the Tree of Wyrd correspond to one of the Dark Gods.
The Self-Immolation Rite is an introduction to the archetypal nature of the seven planetary forces and is just a guided pathworking created by Christos Beest, I believe.
The 21 cards of the Sinister Tarot by Christos Beest were directly inspired by the Dark Gods. Many of the symbols and places in the paintings are actual places that are part of the Dark Tradition. The interesting thing is, the Velpecula card, the one with the house, is actually a place that is directly associated with the Dark Tradition and is the exact same layout, the numbers and all. Christos didn’t know that at the time. That’s something to ponder.
There’s also the Sphere Workings which use the traditional Sinister Tarot deck. But that’s not the Self-Immolation Rite.
EDIT: Also, it’s important to note that the Tree of Wyrd is just a causal abstraction to help Initiate’s understand the relation between the Dark Gods and the planetary Emanations and how it all fits together. It doesn’t exist.[/quote]
Yes, sorry, you’re right, it’s not the same. Where is that place of the Dark Tradition mention located?
