I thought I'd bump this up, as I just brought 'Psychic Self-Defence' today, from what I've read already (from the editions you can find online), I definitely do really like it, and I think it will be a good resource to have for my personal use.

I'd love to hear your thoughts - Dion Fortune is my spiritual mother and I consider my life's work to be an extension of what I have learned, first and foremost, from her. Not to say I don;t have criticisms, but she would want that, if they were sound ones that built on her work. And, I like to think they are.

It's actually on our coven's recommended reading list. Her The Mystical Qabalah is also a good one for anyone looking to get their feet wet in that area. I enjoyed, and got a lot out of both.

A few writers of that time commented on 'Black Lodges', including Crowley warning of the 'Black Brothers,' so, I wouldn't doubt that they're probably out there, as you read in PSD, you'd be able to realise if you've ever come under psychic attack before.
