    "Gateways Through Stone and Circle," by Fra. Ashen Chassan

    in Radio

    On Thursday July 11th the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will review the new book "Gateways Through Stone and Circle" by Frater Ashen Chassan. We will have the author as a featured call-in guest. This book is, in our opinion, the best practical "how to do it" book on traditional Western ceremonial magick in the past 16 years. It is also one of the best "why to do it" books also. This is a magical book by a real magician who has studied, lived and mastered the Art. After working his way through the Lemegeton's Goetia and Almadel, he decided to concentrate on Trithemius' "Book of Secret Things" or "The Art of Drawing Spirits into Crystals" from Barrett's "Magus" and make this system of Angelic crystal conjuration his special forte. He built his own equipment -- graphically detailed in the book -- and described all the technical details, rituals and techniques necessary to replicate his experiments. The text is beautifully written in a mature, sophisticated and very readable style. So, tune in Thursday and visit with the Magus from "The Magus."

    Old Testament Pseudepigrapha - Melchizedek & Solomon

    in Radio

    On Thursday January 29th, 2015 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon
    will present a discussion and review on a newly published collection of
    Old Testament pseudepigrapha (apocryphal works) edited by Bauckham,
    Davila and Panayotov from Erdmans. What makes this 800 page doorstopper
    of particular interest to us is "The Legend of Melchizedek" and
    Solomon's Hygromancy which is very similar to the medieval Greater Key
    of Solomon and may be a later version of the Key's original source. Poke
    will be joined by Biblical scholar Frater Solomon who first discovered
    this very interesting publication and brought it to our attention. So if
    you want to hear about some strange old magical manuscripts that have
    just come to light, tune in and we'll delve into this collection.

  • Books and Films that Inspired the O.T.A.

    in Radio

    On Christmas night December 25th, 2014 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke
    Runyon will present a special program in which Frater Thabion, your host
    and the founder of the Order of the Temple of Astarte, will trace the
    books and films that influenced and inspired him to create and develop
    his unique American system of Magick. I grew out of the Oz books and
    graduated to the Mars books (John Carter) then into a teenage
    fascination with Richard Shaver's hi-tech Lemurian survivor stories. I
    will go to my 1950s early college days watching films such as Jean
    Cocteau's Orpheus, and Orson Welles Black Magic (on Cagliostro and
    Mesmer) and move on through to a study of Voodoo in line with my
    Caribbean adventurer-fiction writer persona. The Saragossa Manuscript
    for Kabbalah and mirror magick, Graves The White Goddess. Then my
    illness which I tried to cure with self-hypnosis. This led to a serious
    study of hypnosis along with Tibetan Tantra (Evans-Wentz) and finally
    Western Magick. Mastering the Goetia with the mirror method led to
    Jungian psycho-philosophy and the study of anthropology culminating in a
    Master's Degree in the subject from California State University. During
    this program I created the modern Hermetically oriented Neo-Canaanite
    Seasonal ceremonies for our magical order The Temple of Astarte, The
    main purpose of our Goetia was to bring up and reestablish the Secret
    Goddess of old King Solomon himself. We use the 1770 Hermetic-Masonic rite of Crata Repoa as a structure for our system and I will discuss the sources behind this. Perhaps some of these books and teachings will help others to understand our perspective on the Western Tradition and what we expect to
    accomplish by what we call The Great Work.
