His involvement with the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn at a young age left an enduring legacy on the occult world. During his time in the order, he developed a contentious relationship with William Butler Yeats and Arthur Edward Waite; often criticizing their work through scathing reviews on his periodical The Equinox. Through his friend Allan Bennett, he was introduced to Buddhism, while Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers served as early mentor but later became an enemy.
