Quantum Magic: A Guide to Understanding and Practicing Magic is a non-fiction spiritual education text written by J.M. Conley, a long-term practitioner and student of the occult. He decided to write this book to serve as an introduction to the subject as well to provide practitioners with a standard approach to the techniques, theories and practice of Magic. Conley draws parallels between the study of science and the workings of the physical realm, and the practice of magic. He then presents a background discussion on energy, balance and the elements. Successful ritual practice of magic is dependent upon the preparation of both the participants and the materials that are needed for the particular spell. Meditation, focus, awareness and memory are all important aspects of preparedness, and Conley discusses each in detail. He also includes a comprehensive appendix of selected readings.
J.M. Conley's non-fiction religion and spirituality work, Quantum Magic: A Guide to Understanding and Practicing Magic, is a practical and easy to read primer. I've long been curious about ritual magic, but, after consulting several confusing and/or disturbing texts, had just about given up on the topic. Conley's presentation demystifies magic and magical practice, and his preparatory exercises are marvelous for anyone who wants to improve the functioning and health of their mind and body. What most impressed me, however, was his step-by-step guide in which he walks the reader through every aspect of a magical ritual, and I was pleased to find that those books that had me despairing of ever understanding the practice of magic were not on his extensive list of recommended readings. Quantum Magic is most highly recommended.
