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 […]

The Baal Shem of London

The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, a linchpin in Western occultism, was founded in the late 1880s. Within 15 years there had been schisms dividing the Order. With the internet today, events happen much faster. Various groups claim to be “the” Golden Dawn and fight for the use of the name. New groups claim […]

Hot Reading for a Cool Winter

Winter has started here on the Sea of Trees in Southern California. We’ve had the heaviest rainfall in a decade and it’s been quite cold (for us), dipping down below freezing. So I’ve got the heater on and I’ve been enjoying a lot of great reading with some fairly recent books. I’d like to share […]

The Fluffy Bunny Kerfuffle

As a blogger, one of my responsibilities is to read other blogs and see what others are communicating. If you’ve been reading various blogs, you might note that one recent point of contention is the type of person known as a “fluffy bunny.” Ah, the fluffy bunny. Anyone who has been involved with magick, Paganism, […]

The Curse of Context

In my post entitled Labels, Cults, and Politics I focused on the idea that by not defining terms, people (ab)use the terms to influence others. They use a term to get your support because you believe the term means one thing even though they use the term to mean something different. An example of this phenomenon, […]

Labels, Cults, and Politics

In the blog Gleamings from the Dawn, Morgan Drake Eckstein seems surprised to hear that on another blog, a person wrote that you shouldn’t use the term “cult” to describe “Golden Dawn groups.” Eckstein writes, “If we cannot use the word ‘cult,’ especially in its technical sense, then what word are we supposed to use?” […]

The Magickal Name

I read an interesting blog post by Leigh-Ann Anderson called Choosing a Magickal Name. It give some interesting ideas on how to choose a magickal name, but it doesn’t approach the topic historically. Magickal Names in the Past Anciently, there’s no evidence that people used magickal names. While this may be because magickal and mundane […]

No Mirror Spells, Please!

One of the most common discussions I’ve had (or seen) about magick concerns psychic attack. I deal with this in Modern Magick, and point out that I agree with concept that Denning and Phillips present in their book Practical Guide to Psychic Self-Defense, that real psychic attacks are rare. After all, if someone has the ability […]
