So I’ve been thinking about writing a basic introductory primer into occult practices. Nothing super specific, just basic information on different practices followed by sections that teach basic universal skills that are useful regardless of the path of practice that you take. Like, have the preface give basic info on different systems as well as the proper warnings about mishandling occult workings, then go into basic meditation, followed by awakening astral senses and basic energywork, some basic ritualwork like sigils and candle magick, then spiritwork.
Just basic path-neutral stuff that can open the door for aspiring occultists while also giving them the tools they need to be able to follow a path that they want to follow. Just enough to get someone’s foot in the door without forcing them to search for hours to find information for stuff that they can use to get properly initiated so they can pick a path to take.
