…Our god’s name is Abraxas and he is God and Satan and he contains both the luminous and the dark world. Abraxas doesn’t take exception to any of your thoughts or any of your dreams. Never forget that. But he will leave you once you become blameless and normal.
Herman Hesse, Demian (1919)
The Guild of the Black Rose [A Codex Arkanum® Psychic Sorcery Society] is the backbone organization for practitioners of the High Gnostic-Alchemikal Magick from The Codex Arkanum®.
Our esoteric guild was founded in the historical region of Transylvania in 1333 by a sorcerer named Draco Demyan who used to introduce himself as direct descendant of Cain, and claimed to be the reincarnation of the legendary wiseman Alkidr Munqarnakir.
Demyan aimed to gather the most powerful psychic sorcerers and sorceresses of the ancient world in The Magickal Guild of the Black Rose. So, he tattooed on his arm a double headed dragon which was holding a black rose and a sword.
