New Season 2 starting date is November 20

Still waiting for the final delivery of my new computer… but in two or three days everything should be fine. Thanks for your patience!

Dear friends and listeners,
as some of you already know, my computer ceased working last Saturday, while I was finalizing the first episode of Season 2, with Angel Millar.
I should be receiving my new “workhorse” sometime this weekend, at the latest on Monday, if Apple keeps their promise. All data is safe, but will need to be restored onto the new computer once it is here.
But at the moment I am unable to edit and prepare the episode and for that reason I have to reschedule as follows:

Season 2 will start on Thursday, November 20, with our featured guest ANGEL MILLAR
The first membership episode, called NEW MOON (as they are always due on new moon),
will not appear in November, but in December only, therefore DECEMBER 18.

In the meantime enjoy our previous episodes and especially our SAMHAIN SPECIAL EDITION, if you have not already done so.
I hope this will be the end of the time delays and troubles of the past weeks. Thanks for your support and fidelity, the download and streaming figures look great!

Santissima Muerte – by Stuart Littlejohn

The current podcast episode

It was very fascinating and touching for me to interview the great Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki, founder and leader of the Servants of the Light. She is originally from Jersey, United Kingdom, where she still lives today, but her extensive traveling has brought her all across the world. She talks to us about her experiences on those travels, her meetings with very different people. She recalls her youth, talks about the importance of rhythm in life, how she was “prevented” – as she calls it – a career as an opera singer. She tells us how she joined the Fraternity of the Inner Light and how she met Ernest Butler, a meeting that determined a lot of what was to come.

There is also a news section, a book review and of course some interesting music.

Please also observe our show notes!

A few words about this page


Thoth-Hermes has been a plan I have been cherishing for a while: a website treating different subjects from the world of the Western Esoteric Tradition  … At the centre of the activity there is a podcast, presenting mainly high quality interviews with important authors, thinkers and and experts, but also other aspects of the field.

I am European. Over the centuries Europe has given birth to most of the currents of what we call the Western Tradition. Over the last century or so there has been a shift towards North America, where many of the leading experts are now located. Also what we find on the internet comes often out of North America and the Anglo-Saxon world. Thoth-Hermes will try to give a strong European accent to our field, but is of course at any time open to esotericists from the whole planet.

I am an Artist. This is why I have also a special interest in artists who are working with influences and impressions from the Esoteric realm in their art, be it performing arts, music or visual art. The podcast and the website will therefore regularly feature artists and their work.

Work in Progress

This webpage is quite an ambitious project. It is supposed to become a meeting point for everyone interested in subjects around the Western (and maybe not only Western) Esoteric Tradition.

Therefore we will develop this page slowly, step by step. One after the other subjects and menu points planned for the near and not so near future will be added. I therefore hope that you will consider this site as “Work in Progress”, come back often and see what is new, and how you could contribute.
