"This Order's mentor and guiding light was the late Dr. Israel Regardie. The modern-day Order does not claim institutional lineage
to the original H.O.G.D. but it does claim initiatory lineage to the original through Israel Regardie."

"Just as Israel Regardie rescued the Golden Dawn from oblivion, so have the Ciceros,
with their unrivaled grasp of magical practice, maintained it as a living tradition made availableto all...
They are indeed true magicians of the Golden Dawn."

Chic Cicero

Charles “Chic” Cicero was born in Buffalo, New York. An early love of music, particularly of the saxophone, resulted in Chic's many years of experience as a lead musician in several jazz, blues and rock ensembles, working with many famous performers in the music industry.

Chic and the Mathers portrait

He has been a practicing ceremonial magician for the past forty years.  Chic's interest in freemasonry and the western esoteric tradition resulted in research articles on rosicrucianism and the knights templar, printed in such publications as Ars Quatuor Coronatorum and the 1996–2000 Transactions of the Metropolitan College of the SRIA .

Israel Regardie with Chic Cicero

Chic is a member of several masonic, martinist and rosicrucian organizations.  He was also a close personal friend and confidant of Israel Regardie.  Having established a Golden Dawn temple in 1977, Chic was one of the key people who helped Regardie to resurrect a legitimate, initiatory branch of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn in the United States in the early 1980s.
