I am now scheduled to give three workshops:
Golden Dawn Magick: The Magick of Light
The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn is arguably one of the most important mystical/magical organization of the last 100+ years. However, what is not well known is that the Golden Dawn actually practiced little magick. The real secrets of magick were held for the Golden Dawn’s “Inner Order,” the R.R. et A.C.
It was in this Inner Order that members became true magicians. Here they learned “The Magick of Light,” the magical system of the Golden Dawn. This system had five aspects, each associated with one of the five elements (Air, Earth, Fire Water, Spirit).
Surprisingly, the techniques of the Magic of Light included such things as weather working, causing earthquakes, shapeshifting and alchemy. In this workshop you will learn the five aspects of the Magick of Light and how the magick was performed.
This workshop is ideal for all types of magicians, for those who wish to know about magick, and for those interested in the Golden Dawn.
Many people are familiar with modern numerology, but here is a puzzling question about it: Why do the letters “c” and “k” have different numerical values when they sound alike? After all, letters are mere symbols which represent sounds. Therefore, the sound should determine the numerical value, not the letter.
The ancient Kabalists understood this principle. They created a system of numerology based on sounds rather than drawn letters. The result is a highly-effective system of numerology which is easy to learn and use.
You will be able to add this technique to any system of numerology you currently use and thus improve you overall accuracy. This workshop will also teach you how to use the Kabalistic secrets of Sound Numerology to work magick that can improve your life and the lives of others.
And for one of your most amazing evenings ever, on Friday night I’ll be leading…
An Evening of Kabalistic Sex Magick
This workshop—an evening of information and experimentation, self-realization and illumination—will be unlike anything you have ever had before, and here are just some of the reasons why.
The workshop will run for as long as people like.
You will have the opportunity to learn and experience as much as you desire. Unlike other workshops, An Evening of Kabalistic Sex Magick is modular. At the end of each module there will be a break. You may leave after any module.
Module 1: History
In this module you will discover the documented history of Kabalistic Sex Magick. You will learn how it began, how it existed in the famous temples of Jerusalem, how it evolved over the centuries, and how it was finally revealed. You’ll also see how it is different than the more famous traditions and why this may be better.
Module 2: Experiencing the Energy
In this module you will experience flows of energy similar to what is experienced during Sex Magick.
Module 3: The Types of Kabalistic Sex Magick
In this module you will learn about how Kabalistic Sex Magick actually works. How the energy is raised, directed, etc.
Module 4: Arousing the Energy
In this module we will work with raising the sexual energy and directing it. The focus is on individual work.
Module 5: Directing the Energy
In this module we will work with directing the energy through the body of a partner.
Module 6: Sex Magick Energy Work
Working with a partner or partners, we will experience more complete work with the energy raised.
Module 7: Sex Magick
Here we will put together all we have learned in order to perform a personal magical ritual.
Module 8: Going Farther
At the beginning of this module the people remaining will briefly discuss what they would like to do for the rest of the class.
People should bring comfortable pillows and towels to sit/lie on. Wear comfortable clothes that are easy to move in: no jeans! (They’re too tight.)
Couple and Individuals are welcome and encouraged to attend. Please bring something light to eat and share in bite-size pieces (fruits and veggies are ideal). Also bring something to drink, including water.
Active participation through Module 7 is expected of all who attend. Although you may leave after any module, when you do attend please, no “looky-loos!” This includes movement but no sexual touching. Individuals will be paired with others when necessary.
This is NOT just another lecture. When you leave (perhaps in the early hours of the morning), you should be tired but TRAINED. You will be able to use this knowledge for greater self-awareness, better magick and lots of fun!
Get ready for a great Babalon Rising.
When you attend, please look for me.
I look forward to seeing you there!
