A Great Loss for the Occult Community

Recently, I’ve begun to think that maybe the Mayans—or more accurately, some interpreters of the Mayan calendar—were right. I’ve seen a great deal of personal loss this year. Musically, I learned that a guitarist I had played with had died. Before we worked together he had played with the early group, The Music Machine, and […]

The Middle Pillar: Part 1—Why It Matters

Over a year ago I started an eight-part series on the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram or LBRP. To the best of my knowledge it’s still the most complete explanation of the ritual available on the web, although I do imagine some people may have put more of a focus on different sections. You […]

Thank You, Pomona!

I live in Southern California, about 30–45 minutes from the City of Pomona. Pomona was founded in 1888 on a trade route used by indigenous Americans. In the 1700s it was known as the Rancho San Jose. Later, it became known as the Mission San Gabriel Grazing Lands. It was later “given” (albeit not by […]

Napoleon’s Divination Method

When I was very young I was fascinated by my grandfather’s books. Some were incredibly old and smelled funny. Years later I learned that the acrid smell was a type of mold often found on old books. Many used book stores reek of it. Initially, I wasn’t allowed to touch “Grampa Bill’s” books. After I […]

The Five Tantric Bodies

One of the challenges of understanding Tantra is that it transcends the focus most Westerners have that claims Tantra is nothing but, as one author called it, “The Yoga of Sex.” In actuality, that would be like saying an automobile is nothing but “The Yoga of Hubcaps.” There is so much more! In fact, Tantra […]

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 […]

Finding Truth—The Path of the Real Magician

One of the things Israel Regardie has written is that all students of magick should get into some form of psychotherapy. Of course, this is supposed to help the student not become ego-inflated. However, there was another reason for this. Regardie told me that working with a therapist would convince students of the reality of […]

Sunday Evening at Pantheacon

It’s been an amazing two-and-a-half days at Pantheacon! I spent Saturday rehearsing for my workshops later in the day. Then I went to the exclusive Llewellyn party. Thanks to Elysia for setting it up. I had a great chance to meet and greet long-time friends and meet some new Llewellyn authors. Unfortunately, the room was […]

Why Tarot?

Why is it magical people are so interested in the Tarot? There are numerous forms of divination. Currently, I’m beginning to study palmistry. Here are a few great resources if you’re interested: You Can Read Palms by Richard Webster Instant Palm Reader by Linda Domin Palmistry Quick & Easy by Peter Hazel Palm Reading for […]

“Help me, Obi Wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope.”

Do you remember the first time you heard that line? I do. There had been an enormous line around the theater in San Diego. A friend and I walked to the front of the line and asked if there were any tickets left for the current show. “Only in the front row,” we were told. […]
