Freemasons, Webinars, and the Golden Dawn

There has been a debate on the internet concerning the future of magick. I saw a discussion about it on Aaron Leitch’s Blog. There, Aaron  discusses comments by Jake Stratton-Kent concerning the future of magick. One of the problems in this discussion is the use of jargon. Aaron reveals, “Jake is a goetic magician, but […]

Let’s Do Some Magick!

It seems like many times when I personally meet some people, get friendly, and spend some time with them, at least one of them gets into this conversation with me: Let’s do some magick! “Great,” I say! “I’d love to do magick with you. What shall we do the magick for?” Uhh… And a few […]

Where the “New Age” Goes Wrong

According to Thelemites, followers of the beliefs of Aleister Crowley, we entered the new age (or more accurately, New Aeon), in 1904. According to astrologers, we are either at the cusp or beginning of the new Age of Aquarius. Some say that this new age is an era of invention and universal brotherhood. Others say […]

From “Inner Secret” to Minor Diversion

When Aleister Crowley was initiated into the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, he was initially impressed with the intensity and seriousness of the vows he took never to reveal any of the secrets of the Order. He quickly became disappointed, though, when those “secrets” were revealed to be relatively mundane—or at least well known—things […]

The Golden Dawn is Alive and Growing!

Spiritual traditions tend to follow a specific path: growth, stagnation, death. During the stagnation period, spiritual traditions lock down their beliefs, put them in stone, refuse to change (or are exceedingly slow to change), and attack anyone who dares to challenge the leaders’ orthodoxy. We see this now in many spiritual traditions. Some major traditions […]

Magick Apple

One of the continued challenges of ritual design is simple: coming up with a good ritual. This has to take in several considerations: Theory/philosophy: Does the ritual you’re designing match your understanding of magick? Does it have something that counters your magickal philosophy or it is completely in harmony with what you know? Theatricality: Even […]

Setting the Record Straight

Thank You, S.F. Bay! First, I would like to thank everyone who showed up for my workshops at Ancient Ways in Oakland, CA, this last weekend. I’d also like to thank shop owner Glenn Turner for her hospitality and friendship, as well as nods to Marilee, Michael, and everyone else at the shop. If you’re […]

French Lick?

Yes, I know the name sounds like something from a bad porno film. In actuality, French Lick, Indiana, is a real town. It is the home town of NBA great Larry Bird. People visiting the casinos there included boxer Joe Lewis and gangster Al Capone. Franklin D. Roosevelt announced his intention to run for President here. […]

Use the Right Tool

There’s an old saying that goes, “If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.” I’ve tried using hammers on screws, and it just doesn’t work. Having the right tool is important in carpentry. It’s also important in magick. Yesterday I received an email from a person who wrote, I am reading […]
