John Michael Greer: Life and Written Books

Updated on:

/

Written by: Dawn Black (Witchipedia)

Reviewed by: Tina Caro

John Michael Greer was born in 1962 in Bremerton, Washington. He began studying the Golden Dawn tradition of Hermetic magic in his teens, and followed the “golden thread” of esoteric teachings into a wide range of related subjects, from martial arts and Asian mystical traditions to environmental science and sacred geometry.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

He has authored numerous books on a wide range of topics, including magic, ecology, and spirituality, making him a prolific and respected writer within the occult community.

Greer’s works often blend historical research, practical guidance, and a deep understanding of esoteric traditions, providing readers with valuable insights and practical tools for their spiritual journeys.

As an advocate for sustainability and environmental consciousness, Greer’s writings also emphasize the importance of ecological awareness and sustainable living within the context of magic and spirituality.

His life’s work reflects a commitment to preserving and reviving ancient wisdom while adapting it to the needs and challenges of the modern world, making him an influential and enduring voice in the realm of witchcraft and esoteric studies.

John’s life and works

He graduated from the University of Washington in 1993 with a BA in Comparative History of Ideas. His first published book, Paths of Wisdom, a handbook of Golden Dawn cabalistic philosophy, was released by Llewellyn in 1996, and has been followed by many other books on a variety of esoteric and occult subjects.

Dissatisfaction with some aspects of the Golden Dawn system, especially its lack of contact with the realities of green nature, led him to Druidry. In 1995 he joined the Order of Bards Ovates and Druids (OBOD) and received his certificate as a Druid Companion of the Order in 2002. In 2003 he was honored with OBOD’s Mount Haemus Award for Druid scholarship. In 2001 he also joined the Druid fellowship Ar nDraiocht Fein (ADF). He served as the Grand Archdruid of the Ancient Order of Druids in America during the early part of the 21st century. In 2013, he founded the Druidical Order of the Golden Dawn.
