To All in the Western Mystery Tradition,
A shinning star of the modern occult movement has faded away. :( Donald Michael Kraig not only changed my life with his book Modern Magick, he changed the face of the entire occult community. Whether you are a Pagan, a Ceremonialist or both, whether or not you’ve read his work, you or someone you know has been affected by his work. Most occult authors – any authors, really – only dream of having that kind of impact!
And, you know what? The man accomplished his life’s work without ever resorting to politics or hostility. No matter who you are or what tradition you follow, you knew Don Kraig had your back. That’s a significant achievement for anyone in any field!
My occult career didn’t truly begin until a friend handed me a copy of ‘Modern Magick’, and I decided to follow Don’s course. A couple of decades later, it all came full circle when Don and I both hosted workshops at the same festival. (It was Green Song Grove, right here in Florida, in fact.) I got to attend his workshop, and he attended mine.
Godspeed, Frater! You have left a legacy and achieved immortality. Great Work!
