Ophiel (Edward C. Peach) was an occultist who taught and wrote 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.
Ophiel gained his knowledge through experimentation and practical work. He asserted that because he was not a member of any occult organization and not sworn to secrecy, he could reveal all the secrets and laws concerning the occult.
It is widely speculated by many that Edward Peach may have gained most or all of his insight from the namesake he chose to use as his occultist name - the spirit of Mercury Who was also known as 'Ophiel' - one of the Olympic spirits. Suggesting his knowledge may have been directly channeled from the spirit world, which is a recurring theme of practice by many occultists and authors of occult works.
