The Western Esoteric Community has lost one of its most important and prominent teachers. With his base in Rosicrucianism and Martinism Jean Dubuis has helped many students of the occult in different forms. I have written about him or his teachings many times before on this blog and gathered some salient biographical information in my Swedish essay on Jean Dubuis, the Golden Dawn Adept.
Few people are aware of the fact that he not only was a student of the Golden Dawn tradition but that he also ran a Golden Dawn Temple in the late 1970’s. He thus was one of the earliest pioneers to reinaugurate the Golden Dawn tradition in our modern era.
Unfortunately for me I never had the opportunity to meet him. Thus I have only met him through his correspondence courses on Esotericism, Qabalah, Spagery and Alchemy. His genius is clearly evident in the legacy of written material which he has left for us. Let us uphold his memory and mission by following his directions. Let us follow his often repeated adage of “Ora et Labora”.
