THREE OF THE FOUR BOOKS WE PRESENT IN THIS EPISODE ARE ABOUT DIFFERENT APPROACHES TO MAGIC, A KIND OF “HOW TO” ON DIFFERENT SCHOOLS AND TECHNIQUES.

CHAPTER 1

In this short interview, author Derek Hunter and I speak about his own version of magic and alchemy, Love Chaos, at the occasion of the launch of his new book “Love Chaos in Theory and Practice”.

The transformation implied here is a change in consciousness, in the way of seeing the world, in seeing yourself, in changing who you are and by doing thus, changing the world. The process of change is unconventional but not without respect to the past, and also open to everyone. Incorporating storytelling, music, art, philosophy, psychology, occult practices such as tarot, magick, mysticism, Love Chaos takes a holistic approach to transformation.

Greg’s Occult of Personality

 

Greg Kaminsky is a scholar of the Western esoteric tradition, with a graduate degree in Medieval Studies, focusing on Renaissance Cabala. Greg became an initiate in several traditions including Illuminism and Freemasonry. Greg is also host and producer of Occult of Personality, a highly regarded and long-running podcast.

From her very early childhood on, Ursula Cserenyi‘s life was filled with spiritual experiences. Later she found the appropriate words in books. Occultism and esotericism have been a part of her life for more than 20 years. Her interests included Wicca, Theosophy, Ritual Magic, Thelema, Shamanism and other paths.
Today she feels a strong connection with Josephine McCarthy’s Quareia work and Babalon, the Red Goddess.

CHAPTER 3

When you think of magic, do you imagine something supernatural, extraordinary, or beyond your everyday reality? Many of us are drawn to magic because we think there’s something “out there” that can bring enchantment and wonder back into our lives.

Yet there’s a secret to real magic: the extraordinary is much closer than you may think.

Briana Saussy’s book has had quite a great echo in the esoteric community lately, Ursula has read it for us and tell us all about it.

CHAPTER 4

In The Magic of Art, Taylor Ellwood shares how art can become a potent magical tool in your spiritual practice.

Best of all you don’t need to be a talented artist to use art magic. All you need to do is pick up the paint brush, pencil, clay, etc., and start creating art that allows you to embody your magic and generate real results that change your life. 

The Magic of Art wants to introduce a whole new set of techniques and tools to your magical practice that will enable you to get amazing results that change your life.
