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 […]

Magick & Magicians—Tantra & Tantrics

Magic & Magicians I am a magician. I practice magick and I perform magic. I’ve been a “magician member” of  The Magic Castle, a world-famous club for magician entertainers. I have performed magic for all age groups and have entertained thousands of people. Magic, like magick, has several subcategories. Two such subcategories whose differentiation can […]

Magick & Forgiveness

We just experienced a blue moon. Popularly, this means the second full moon in a single month. The original meaning of a blue moon, however, is based on a seasonal view of the year. Each season (winter, summer, spring or fall) typically has only three full moons. Because of the way the moon orbits the […]

I Wouldn’t Have Seen It If I Hadn’t Believed It

You might be thinking that I have the title backwards. Surely I meant that I wouldn’t have believed something if I hadn’t seen it. Nope. The statement in the title is actually a quote from Marshall McLuhan, one of the world’s greatest philosophers and multi-talented educators. The quote above clearly shows the way our mind […]

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 […]

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 […]

Energized Enthusiasm

In the Spring of 1913, in Crowley’s Equinox journal (Volume 1 #9), Aleister Crowley published a short article (now available separately) entitled Energized Enthusiasm. While actually focused on sex magick, there are concepts included that extend to all forms of magick. Being a musician myself, I like that Crowley relates music and magick. He writes, […]

Twain, Crowley, and “Black Brothers”

Respect those who seek the truth. Be wary of those who claim to have found it. —Mark Twain One of the challenges of occultism and magickal practice is the challenge of achieving goals. One purpose of magick is personal spiritual evolution. At the same time, one of the things I like to say is, “It’s […]

I LOVE Magick Books

I have been a very fortunate person. As a result of writing Modern Magick, I’ve had the opportunity to meet incredible people, travel around the U.S. and Europe, and experience remarkable things. Part of my good fortune is that I was able to share information in Modern Magick in just the right way and at […]

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 […]
