    The Epoch
    The Esotericon & Portals of Chaos
    Peter J Carroll & Matt Kaybryn

    Review by Ramsey Dukes


    Books by Ramsey Dukes (and others, who may or not be) Can get found here>>>

    I was presented with a copy of the Epoch months ago – it had already been delayed many weeks by the South African customs bureaucracy, so I was keen to review it immediately. But this turned out to be very difficult against a backdrop of considerable work pressure plus an accident that has left me handicapped for a couple of months.

    However, the main reason it has been so difficult to review this book is that it throws up so many interesting and stimulating ideas that I kept having to stop, rethink and start again.

    My first reaction on receiving and skimming my copy of The Epoch was: “The Epoch goes beyond magic. It is a Work of

  • 'Spare World?'

    'Spare World?'

    Spare came into his adulthood at age 18, working with the idea that the planet already stands in hell: he created ‘Earth Inferno’. In February of 1905 he brought his vision to print and to the attention of other Earthly denziens.

    “Yet in despair we begin to see true light. In weakness we can become strong”

    A.O. Spare

    So 110 years on, In celebration of Spare's ‘Earth Inferno’ – Matt Kaybryn & Peter J Carroll present:-

    .........................‘Spare World?’

    An image which celebrates the currents of magic & esoterics that Spare explored, exploded and helped birth. Stood above the mirrored street scene of the Elephant & Castle, as it was then. We also attempt to question the directions that humanity currently explores, like Spare, before us.

    We behold the World of Spare, but no Planet B. And with fracking, pollution & war, to mention just three – do we find ourselves

  • Occult Psaligraphy - A Viewing

    Occult Psaligraphy

    The Hidden Art of Papercutting
    Hagen VON Tulien
    Ouroborus Press 2014
    Artist Edition


    Occult Psaligraphy

    When an artist pursues their work, they perhaps do so with intent and purpose that might well elude those who later come to interact with their productions: the mystery of their inner world, processed through practice and a journey of discovery, of exploration. The resultant artworks create signposts that perhaps indicate directions, places visited or inhabited, and interactions with the denizens of such environments.

    Occult Psaligraphy presents us with a manifestation of such an intriguing and wondrous journey – of the art and magic of Hagen VON Tulien.

    In exploring technique, the artist may well seek to find expression through form – and so transform some impression or idea into the material world with which they can interact– manifesting internal experience into something tangible; something that offers new possibilities, including sharing them with others.

  • Basic Chaos Magick in Theory & Practice

    Basic Chaos Magick in Theory & Practice

    with Nikki Wyrd - Starting today 2nd April 2014

    This course covers a few of the elementary aspects of traditional Chaos Magick. As such it should prove suitable for those of all levels of experience, although it is aimed at those who have just begun to explore this way of engaging with their lives. We shall explore divination, enchantment, evocation, and invocation. Each area will have some material, posted monthly, which you can address at your own speed. If anyone wants to join in at a later date, or only engage with some of these topics, please do, although the course does build over the months into a complete structure.

  • The Wheel of Wealth - With Dave Lee

    The Wheel of Wealth - With Dave Lee

    The creation of a wealth talisman which has all 8 Colours of Magic within it - Red of Blue, Yellow of Blue and so on.

    The Wheel of Wealth is a circular talisman that incorporates all the aspects of wealth in your life. Each of us makes our own, in the course of a series of workings. It should be something that can rotate, to symbolize the endless cycling of the Work of wealth, the way we can go all the way round the 8 Magics and yet we have to start again and do it all over, because we’ve learned more since we started the first cycle.

    Join us at the college for a master class in magical manifestation!
