I recently gave an interview for the Podcast Healing From Within with Tony Valen, and it is now available for your listening pleasure. :)
I had a wonderful time discussing the Golden Dawn, Hermeticism, Spiritual Alchemy and much more. The guys who run this show are wonderful and I had a blast talking with them. They had never heard of the Golden Dawn before, so this was my chance to explain what the GD is all about, what we do, where we came from, etc.
I also talk a little about the grimoires toward the end, and even talk some about Ochani Lele and his influence on me. :) Starts at about 29:00.
You can listen to it now:
Healing From Within – Aaron Leitch Interview
UPDATE: I just learned that this episode had 682 total listeners – which is a record for the Healing From Within show. Awesome! :)

Live Too Far Away To Attend?
We are still working on an online version of these classes. However, there is even better news for long-distance students! We have been speaking with other adepts of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn who want to give these same classes in their local area. The first will be this fall in the Long Island, NY area. I will be posting more about this as the event approaches – and, who knows, if this catches on you might someday be able to take these classes in person. :)
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.
