Greetings Angel Workers!
I have been told that the new anthology from Nephilim Press:
will be released soon.
Some time ago, I was asked by Scarlet Imprint to write something about demonology for their anthology entitled Diabolical. So, I wrote a lengthy essay called The Spirit Magick of Abramelin – giving a detailed overview of the system of goety found in the final book of that grimoire. (More recently, that same essay was published in Hermetic Virtues Magazine.)
Later, I was asked by Nephilim Press to write something about the Holy Guardian Angel for their new anthology – Walking With the Angel. So, I decided to give them the exact opposite, and outline the Abramelin system of angel magick. That is, the specific instructions for continuing work with your HGA over a lifetime – instructions which are present but scattered in the original text. Instructions that have remained hidden and unexamined for hundreds of years…
Plus I give a lot of insight into my own performance of the Abramelin operation (specifically its ending) and how I developed my relationship with my HGA over the years that followed.
I’m in very good company in this anthology too! There will be entries from Inominandum, Rufus Opus (in his publication début), Scott Stenwick, and more.

Deeper Down the Rabbit Hole
In just a few days I’ll be returning to the Deeper Down the Rabbit Hole podcast, where I’ll be interviewed by Andrieh Vitimus and Jason Colwell about The Essential Enochian Grimoire.
I had a ton of fun last time – these guys are great to talk to. (As I recall, I stayed on the phone with them for about an hour after the interview was over!) So, needless to say, I’m both honored and excited to be invited back on the show. :) Make sure to tune in!

Greetings Students of Enochiana!
My new book The Essential Enochian Grimoire has finally been released! :):):) Have you received your copy yet? What do you think?
There are several pieces of information contained in the book that I fully expect to be controversial. Some of it is simply obscure material that has never been published before – such as the proper design and use of the reverse side of the Holy Lamen, the little-known 92nd Part of the Earth, or the proper correlation between the four Watchtowers and the “quarters of the Earth.” Some of it includes corrections to long-standing mistakes, – such as the fact that only three of the four Watchtower Seals was given in Dee’s journals, or an incorrect number in the circumference of the Seal of Truth, or the six names of God that were switched on the famous “Banner Diagram.“
One of the most important corrections I made to the material was the restoration of the functions of the Heptarchic angels. Students of Dee’s material will already know how confused and incomplete Dee’s list of functions for these angels was. What you may not know is that Dee was well aware of the problem and made several notations in his journals that give us the necessary keys to restore the list.
Unfortunately, I just didn’t have room in The Essential Enochian Grimoire to lay out all the details of how I went about restoring the information. But this is a pretty big change to the commonly-published material, so I felt it was necessary to show my work. It is important for students to realize this is a restoration I have made based on Dee’s own records, and not merely an innovation I came up with on my own. The Essential Enochian Grimoire is ultimately about Dee’s work, not mine. (Mine will follow in a future publication.)
So, in order for you to see my process – complete with journal references and quotes from Dee to back up my points – I wrote an essay entitled Restoring the Enochian Heptarchia. It has been published by the Llewellyn Journal thus far, and you can read it for free.
Enjoy – and feel free to comment!

P.S. – For those who are still hoping for Skype classes: I’m afraid that Skype was not sufficient for the purpose of online classes. We have another option – a bit more expensive but worth it in terms of quality and functionality. As things move forward, we will post further info on this subject.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 52,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 19 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
