    Hermetic Magical Ethics

    in Radio

    On Thursday January 22nd, 2015 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon
    will present a discussion on Hermetic Magical Ethics. This will be
    somewhat controversial in that we will examine the ethical aspects of
    Hermetic philosophy in comparison to Christianity and other Gnostic
    variations including Crowley's Thelema and Golden Dawn Rosicrucianism.
    We will also question the merits of egalitarian collectivism compared to
    the American/Masonic work ethic and personal responsibility standards.
    We will review our newly adopted Code of Conduct for members of our
    magical lodges and explain some of the reasons for establishing these
    guidelines. So if you want to know how well-behaved and nice to each
    other magicians ought to be, tune in and we will give you our Golden Rules.

    Law of Attraction - 7 Hermetic Principals #2

    in Spirituality

    There is a little known book called the Kablion.  This book was written by authors who call themselves the Three Initiates.  The book was written in the 1930's and is based on the teachings of Hermes, the creator of the Hermetic wisdom, including the knowledge of the Law of Attraction.  In the this podcast and the one to follow, Robert Zink, the Mentor of Light will talk about the value of knowing these principals and how this knowledge can empower your life.  This is not an esoteric conversation, rather it is for lay people who have a life, and want to take it to the next level.

    Parzival, The Hermetic Grail Romance

    in Radio

    On January 8th, 2015 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will
    present a reprise of the 1977 article in the old Seventh Ray number
    nineteen by author Janine Renee titled: Parzival and the Hermetic
    Grail. The author researched and wrote this at our request. It forms an
    important element in our reconstructed linkage of ancient Phoenician
    rituals to early Valentinean Christian Gnosticism and to medieval Grail
    lore. The major source for Janine's article is the 1965 "The Krater and
    the Grail: Hermetic Sources of the Parzival by Henry and Renee Kahane.
    Modern neo-pagans have never lost their fascination for the Holy Grail
    quest. The idea that the Grail was originally pagan (The Hermetic
    Krater) goes along with the recent revelations of Jesus and Mary
    Magdalen and the paganizing of Christianity. So if you want to start on
    your own Grail Quest tune in and we will give you directions to to the
    Grail Castle Montsalvat.

    The Hermetic Link by Jacob Slavenburg

    in Radio

    On Thursday May 22nd, 2014 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will
    present a review on a very important recent book on the Hermetic Tradition by Dutch author Jacob Slavenburg titled: "The Hermetic Link." Reviewing this book will be a team effort between the host and our esteemed guest Frater Ophis (Freeman Presson) who beat us to the punch and reviewed Slavenburg's book on his website two years ago. How did we miss it? No excuse because it should not have been missed. Certainly there have been other surveys of the Hermetic Tradition, usually combined with other related elements such as Kabbalah, Rosicrucianism, magick, etc. but this is the best and most complete tracing of the great Hermetic Gnosis from ancient Egypt, through Alexandria, Harran, the Dark Ages, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the so-called "Enlightenment"
    and the present modern age. Slavenburg takes us from Zosimus to the Kybalion in a sympathetic, very thoughtful and comfortably philosophical style. He quotes Peter Kingsley ("Reality") frequently and does as good a job as Kingsley in getting across the deepest meaning of the Hermetic Mystery (the Great I AM) - perhaps he does it better in that he uses excerpts from Hermes to reveal the treasure we ardent Hermetic devotees hold so dear, whereas Kingsley in Reality depended on pre-Hermetic Parmenides and Empedocles. If all this is Greek to you, it shouldn't be and Slavenburg goes a long way toward establishing the true and enduring magnificence of our venerable Tradition. Tune in and get yourself
    Hermetically sealed. (Preserved for the next incarnation.)

    Hermetic Yoga - Beyond the Middle Pillar

    in Radio

    On Thursday October 16th the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will
    present an advance review on his forthcoming book Hermetic Yoga Beyond
    the Middle Pillar this is a new offering from CHS/OTA that has been a
    long-time in the works. The yoga system described and brought to life in
    this book has been practiced by the O.T.A. since 1975 and is an
    extension of Israel Regardie's Golden Dawn Middle Pillar exercise
    following the Lightning flash going down the spheres from Kether to
    Malkuth forming a complete straight line chakra system similar to the
    Hidhu system of Laya Yoga, In this case the Spheres of the Tree of Life
    are the planets within. this system traces its origin to two German
    Rosicrucian mystics Jacob Bohme and Johann Gitchel. The late Frederick
    Adams of Feraferia was also working on a similar system and an essay of
    his is included Adams also provided the beautiful cover art depicting a
    Goddess in the stars. Also included is an essy by Frater Osiris (Michael
    S. Downs) linking Hermetic Yoga to The Chemical wedding of Christian
    Rosencrutz via Johann Gitchel' s spiral path of the planets in his
    natural man drawing which is one of the keys to the Hermetic Yoga
    conception. The book will be followed with a deck of Yoga cards which
    will enable the practitioner to carry the system in his pocket for
    meditation and study. This is going to be a great aid to magick and
    spiritual development and provides a vital resource that Western
    magicians have needed for centuries. Now we can call on the Gods within
    and exercise all of the powers that our oriental colleagues have called
    upon for centuries. So if you want to get a head start on the latest
    magical tools of empowerment tune in and we'll start warming up for the

    The Pentagrammaton: A Hermetic Revelation, by Frater Osiris

    in Radio

    On Thursday April 17th, 2014 The Hermetic Hour will celebrate its four year anniversary with special guest Frater Osiris, Wor. Michael Downs, Magister of the O.T.A.'s Atlanta Lodge, who will lead us through 500 years of Symbolism, History and Practice of "Transforming the Unpronouncable Tetragrammaton into a Speakable Magickal Logos, the Pentagrammaton," and reveal the relevant practices for achieving Adepthood that this Arcanum encodes and points to: We will learn about the open-secret practice of Divine Theurgy called "Soliliquea" that is intimately tied to "Pronouncing" the Pentagrammaton, better known to us in our time - but identical in essence --as the "Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel" which leads to our 3rd Degree. We will reveal how the Ubiquitous Pentagram of our most fundamental Rite - when understood in its fullness - is the Key in plain site to this August Operation. Osiris will cover the origin and use of the Classical Name YHShUH - an Hermetic Jesus - by which YHVH was Transformed when Cabala was first added to our Tradition by Christian Hermeticists in the Renaissance, and what becomes a proper NEW WORD or Magickal Logos of Transmutation, for our Hermetically purified Tetragrammaton AMShT...This is a visual and diagram intensive exercise, so Frater Osiris has put up some follow-along resources for this talk at < http://wwww.MagicalMason.info > which will become active just before the show -- just click on the Dove of Astarte on the Top of the Monk's head ...So tune in for an Hermetic-Cabalistic meditation on the creative and
    liberating consequences of the O.T.A.'s swap from the traditional Jewish
    Godname of YHVH to the Hermetically 'purified' formulation AMShT as its
    Elemental Tetragrammaton.

    The Phoenicians and The Hermetic Tradition

    in Radio

    On Thursday January 16th, 2014 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon
    will present a discussion on the ancient Phoenicians and the Hermetic
    Tradition. This follows last week's review of "Jesus the Phoenician" by Karim el Koussa. The references for this evening's discussion will be the recent "Phoenician Secrets" by Sandford Holst and "The Phoenicians,
    the Purple Empire of the Ancient World" by Gerald Herm, Our focus will
    be on Phoenician contributions to, and influence on, Western occultism
    and magick. It has recently been established that the Phoenician culture is one of the oldest in the world. It's roots go back nine thousand years. The
    Phoenicians were building and sailing ocean-going ships long before the
    Pyramids were built. The first pyramid was built by European architects
    brought from Malta to Egypt by Phoenician contractors. The Phoenicians
    were very secretive about their business and their religion. We will discuss their astrological religion (the Labors of Hercules), their magical alphabet (the real origin of the Qabalah) and their possible connection with Atlantis. So, if you want to voyage with the Purple People on ancient seas, tune in and we'll hoist the mainsheet.
