    The Magick of Franz Bardon

    in Spirituality

    At 8:00 p.m. on Thursday July 15th, 2010 Hermetic Hour host Poke Runyon will present a lecture on the magick of Franz Bardon, the 20th century
    European alchemist and magician. Bardon was the author of three books on magick, and one semi-autobiographical novel. His Eastern style
    methods of training, owing much to raja and tantric yoga, have had a considerable influence on modern Western practice. We will discuss each
    of his three books in sequence; where his information came from, and what his philosophy was. You will learn about "fluid condensers,"
    "volts," "elementals," magnetic and electric fluids, and magick mirrors. His debt to P. B. Randolph will be mentioned. We will discuss
    the origins of his myriads of spirits, the way he derived his sigils, his unique concept of Kabbalah. Bardon's background as a professional
    hypnotist, alchemist and healer will be compared to his mundane life and problems. The Master was an over-weight chain-smoker who died after
    eating a bacon sandwich---but he was still "The Master," and we should appreciate him all the more for the faults that made him human. Tune in
    find out why Simon, King of the Witches kept saying "Magnetic-Electric," while having fun with the D.A.'s daughter.

    The Universal Master Key by Franz Bardon

    in Radio

    On Thursday March 26th, 2015 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon
    will present a review of the new book:
    "The Universal Master Key" alleged to be a newly discovered manuscript
    by the late Franz Bardon. This book is actually a reconstructed series
    of lectures by Bardon to his students on mastering and balancing the
    four Hermetic elements in the personality as set forth in the first
    section of his book Initiation into Hermetics. The texts of the lectures
    are rewritten from a collection of class notes by the students and
    rendered in Bardon's writing style by his publisher and editor Dieter
    Ruggeberg. The book is published by Faulks Books which mistakenly
    represents it on the internet as taken from a "newly discovered
    manuscript by Franz Bardon." However it does not appear to be entirely a
    hoax. If Dieter wrote the entire book, he has at least mastered Bardon's
    style and philosophic attitudes. The book is certainly worth a place in
    a Magician's Bardon collection. It is very moralistic and sermonizing in
    tone with a strong emphasis on ethics and spiritual integrity. It has
    its short-comings. It was supossed to be organized according to the
    qualities of each element but he seems to go off the track into a
    general discussion on how to live and die well in this and higher worlds
    -- so if want to revisit the Bardonian internal tetragrammaton process,
    tune in and we will go to Hermetic Sunday school with Reverand Franz.
    Next week we revisit the Bavarian Illuminati.

    Rewriting our story means we understand the narrative of myth and/or deception that must be challenged. Does Beyoncé song formation really address the issues of black power, police brutality, cultural appreciation or is it just another artist using the moment to ‘BLOW UP’ her brand?

    DC Legends of Tomorrow Talk Podcast #2 - S 1 Ep 1 PILOT

    in Television

    "In the year 2166, the immortal villain Vandal Savage (Casper Crump) is on the verge of his final victory - total chaos and the utter destruction of humanity. As the world crumbles, the Time Master Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) takes matters into his own hands; he travels 150 years into the past to assemble a carefully selected team of heroes and rogues to stop him.


    Hunter has chosen what seems like an ill-matched group: billionaire inventor Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), who has created an exo-suit with the power to shrink him to miniscule size, as the Atom; Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), the White Canary, a trained assassin; Professor Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson 'Jax' Jackson (Franz Drameh), who together form the meta-human Firestorm; Leonard Snart (Wentworth Miller), known as Captain Cold, and his partner Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell), AKA Heat Wave, a pair of career criminals; and Kendra Saunders (Ciara Renée) and Carter Hall (Falk Hentschel) AKA Hawkgirl and Hawkman.


    Together this unlikely group will attempt to stop one of the most formidable villains of all time, while they must learn how to not only be a team, but heroes as well."

    Ed Reib of the G.D. Interviews Poke Runyon

    in Radio

    On Thursday October 22nd, 2015 the Hermetic Hour will air an interview
    of your host Poke Runyon (V.H. Frater D.a. L.) conducted by Ed Reib
    (V.H. Frater B.T.) on his own "Esoterinerd" podcast show. Ed is a
    Golden Dawn Inner Order member and the son of the late magician and
    college professor John Dan Reib, who was one of Poke's close friends and
    confidants. The interview is enlivened as they share memories of John's
    outrageous guerrilla radio broadcasts. Poke and John both studied Franz
    Bardon and were both fascinated by Richard Shaver. This interview will
    take you back to the days of "Simon King of the Witches" here in the Los
    Angeles area. It is both fun and informative, so if you want to return
    with us to the 1970s and 80s tune in and we will tell it like it was.
