In a recent article from The Telegraph, Father Vincent Lampert explains why the number of practicing Roman-Catholic exorcists has recently increased four-fold in the United States
What I suppose differentiates me from most people I’ve found in say magick circles is that my practice, and the practice I’m recommending here revolves more around the ritualistic use of marijuana specifically, which I almost jokingly refer to as ganj-i-tation
The Cabinet of the Solar Plexus and GalleryX are pleased to present this landmark exhibition of international esoteric and arcane art, curated by Dolorosa de la Cruz
In total WTF news, apparently Arby’s has decided to invoke everyone’s favorite preternaturally vague Thelemite motto in a recent social media marketing campaign:
Change that is imposed by the will of the individual does not occur until there is frustration. Without this sense of frustration there will be a lack of conviction.
I mean, it’s not super tough to diagnose what went wrong with R.A.W. as far as spiritual progress goes. To advance in this capacity, you have to shut off the part of your mind that’s been imprinted with the idea that western atheistic scientism is the only means of understanding reality.

‘Gerald Suster can be considered one of the most Front Coverimportant occultists of the late-20th century. A prolific writer, esteemed historian and advocate of Thelemic Magick, he is best known for his biographies of Aleister Crowley & Israel Regardie
What’s critical is that in the few magick books I’ve actually read, the emphasis was always on technique and not purpose. In my experience, this is a fairly huge oversight as I don’t think technique necessarily means a whole lot and intent is pretty much everything.
While reading volume I of this series (here if you missed it) some people might have wondered where the advanced sigil projection title was coming from as I didn’t write much about…
