DNF placed great importance on Atlantis as a cornerstone of the Western Mysteries. She reported visions of Atlantis at the age of four and her mentor, Moriarty, lectured on the subject. She also referred to the lost continent in her writing, and its influence on the magical side of the Arthuriad is canon for most people who continue in the traditions she established or popularised.
However, students and teachers of the mysteries remain divided on whether Atlantis was ever more than a morality tale by Plato or a memory of Crete, or a lost continent and body of esoteric knowledge that will one day rise again.
Amid the controversy of Atlantis and the practices attributed to it, there is perhaps a more fundamental question that is central to the Western Mysteries:
Is Atlantis still relevant to magic today?
Every occult writer and teacher is inevitably of their time (or perhaps a little ahead of it), so do we need to revisit, review and reconsider Atlantis from a 21st century perspective?
Let the debate begin!
