Presenting at NOTOCON XI

I was originally asked to hold off on making this announcement until the official schedule was posted online, but since it’s up now I figure I can go ahead with it. This summer, I will be presenting on Heptarchial Evocation at NOTOCON XI, the eleventh biannual conference of Ordo Templi Orientis, in Orlando, Florida. The presentation is scheduled for 9 AM on Friday, August 11th of 2017. It might have been nice to do the presentation a little later in the day, since I’m not really a morning person, but it’s also pretty cool to be kicking off Friday’s track of ritual presentations.

The presentation will include a condensed version of my Introduction to the Heptarchia Mystica talk and a full Heptarchial evocation ritual done according to the procedure laid out in Mastering the Mystical Heptarchy, with a few additional tweaks for a Thelemic audience. After the conference, I will be making the text of my talk available over on Augoeides as per my usual practice. If you would like to buy a copy of my book to peruse before the presentation, just click on the title there to order.

So if you will be attending the conference, I hope that you’ll resist the urge to sleep in on Friday morning (which, to be fair, I might very well do myself if I wasn’t presenting) and come check it out. It should be a good time.

Featured on Thelema NOW! Podcast

This week my introductory lecture on Enochian magick is featured on Thelema NOW!, the official podcast of US Grand Lodge OTO. The Thelema NOW! homepage is here, and a direct link to the podcast is here.

The prepared text of my lecture was published over on Augoeides back in January right after I presented it, but one of the things about checking out the recording is that I don’t always stick to my prepared talk one hundred percent. Also, I usually allow people to ask questions throughout my presentations, and the answers to those are not included in the prepared text.

Enjoy!

Introduction to Enochian Magick Talk

holy_table_2I will be giving an introductory talk on Enochian magick at Leaping Laughter Lodge here in Minneapolis on the evening of Saturday, January 14th. Leaping Laughter Lodge is located at 3107 California Street NE, Minneapolis MN, 55418. The event will start at 7 PM.

Here’s a link to the event on Facebook, if you would like to attend. If you are not local, I will be posting the text of my talk over on Augoeides as usual a few days later so you can read it then.

Hope to see you there!

UPDATE: Full text of my presentation can be found here.

Zodiacal Angels Presentation at Leaping Laughter Lodge

zodiac_wheel_spaceNext Saturday, August 20th, I will be giving a presentation on zodiacal angels at Leaping Laughter Lodge in Minneapolis. The presentation will be a distillation of the material found in my Evoking Zodiacal Angels article, published in the new Liber Spirituum anthology from Azoth Press.

Much has been published on the angels and other entities related to the planets and elements, but far less is available for working with the angels of the zodiac. However, the zodiacal forces represent 12 of the 24 sets of key scale values found in Liber 777 and correspond to many useful practical powers.

This presentation will discuss how to conjure these angels, according to the methods that I have used over the years that have yielded good results. If you are local or will be in the Twin Cities next weekend, I invite you to stop by the lodge and check it out.

Leaping Laughter Lodge is located at 3107 NE California St, Minneapolis, MN 55418. The presentation will begin at 7 PM. For those who are not local, I will do my best to post the text of the presentation on Augoeides the following Monday.
