Ophiel's Biography (Books)
Ophiel ( Edward c. Peach ) was an occultist and teacher, who taught and wrote about esotericism and the occult during the 1960 - 70?s. His books focus on the practical side of the occult, and are like a precious gold mine of practical information and instructions.
I have read most of ophiel's books several times, many years ago, and though his style is somewhat unusual, he delivers his message quite clearly.
Ophiel gained his knowledge through experiments and practical work. He said that because he was not a member of any group or fraternity, he was not sworn to secrecy, and therefore could reveal all the secrets and laws concerning the occult and magic, the subjects about which he wrote.
