Maja D'Aoust speaks with Gabriel Roberts

Disinfonauts! It’s been a pretty long time now since I’ve contributed, but I’m happy to say that I’ve accepted Thad’s offer to return to the site.  Really excited for the good things to come!  Alright, let’s get to it:

A little over a year ago, I had the chance to interview LA luminary and prominent occultist, Maja D’Aoust. Few have embodied a balanced and well educated living out of modern esoteric thinking without coming off as trendy, campy, or dubious.  Famous for her art work, erudite lectures and joyful demeanor, Maja has provided sound guidance for both the noob and the expert occultist.  In this half hour interview, we cover the problem of evil, futurism, psychedelics, the role of religion and what we can do to live wisely in these increasingly mad times.
