Can You See Me Now?

Over a year ago I made a post where I shared this story about Aleister Crowley: There is a story of a young man, sitting in a cafĂ© (I’ve heard of different locations where this story occurred), when all of a sudden, a strange man, dressed in yellow, comes darting through the cafĂ©, babbling in […]

Apocalypse NOT—and the Future of Occult Training

I am writing this just a few days before the supposed Mayan Apocalypse on Friday, December 21, 2012. The belief that the “end times” are here is nothing new. This LINK will take you to a page that lists over 200 dates where experts and religious leaders said the end of the world was coming. […]

Wondering What to Get?

Some people like money as a gift. While there’s a part of me that thinks, “Good! Money! I can do something with this,” there’s also another part of me that thinks, “They sure didn’t think much about this gift!” I prefer receiving something that someone has actually spent time considering. “What is Don like? What […]

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 […]

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 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 101 # 6.3.1: Understanding the Formulation of the Pentagrams

This is part of a continuing series of posts that form a Magick 101 class. I hope you’re enjoying them. Previously, I have shared a great deal on preparations. Most recently I’ve been going deeply into the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram, beginning with why it still matters and then going into the first […]

Did the Golden Dawn Presage NLP?

Neuro-Linguistic Programming, NLP, consists of a large set of techniques for achieving excellence. The result of such excellence is improvement in your life and your ability to interact with others in such remarkable ways that it seems magickal. Indeed, the first book on NLP was titled The Structure of Magic. The cover implied that the […]

Regardie’s The Golden Dawn

Francis Israel Regardie’s The Golden Dawn is one of the most important books in the history of modern occultism. Recently there have been a spate of attacks on Regardie’s book as being incomplete or not “the real stuff” leading to new books and claims by individuals to have received new information from the Secret Chiefs.
