    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.

    The Lost Gospel, by Jacobivici and Wilson

    in Radio

    On Thursday December 4th, 2014 the Hermetic Hour with Host Poke Runyon
    will review and discuss the latest controversial book attempting to prove a marriage between Jesus and Mary the Magdalene: "The Lost Gospel" by Simcha Jacobovici and Barrie Wilson. This is basically a reinterpretation of an ancient text, the elaborated story of Joseph and Aseneth from Genesis seen as a coded allegory for Jesus and Mary the Magdalene being married and having a family. They make some very good arguments for this interpretation. Apparently this is not a new idea but this "Lost Gospel" has been speculated as a coded text for hundreds of years. We find it particularly important because it lines up with the
    Nassaene Hippolytus document behind our conception of the secret Holy Grail history suggested in From Ritual to Romance. Frater Solomon discovered a link from The Lost Gospel to the Crata Repoa that I find is quite significant. It also seems that Mary the Magdalene (Mary the Lady of the Tower) may have been known to the original Rosicrucians. So if you want to get a Hermetic view on "The Lost Gospel" tune in and we will start decoding.

    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
    session.

    Salome's Dance of the Seven Veils - an Ancient Ritual

    in Radio

    On Thursday October 2nd, 2014 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon
    will present a discussion on Princess Salome's Dance of the Seven Veils.
    which was actually the Phoenician version of Babylonian Ishtar's
    descent into the underworld to resurrect the Dying God; in her case
    Tammuz, in our case Ba'al Hadad We have used this obviously fact-based
    legend to reconstruct Anath's vanquishing the Lord of Death at Autumn
    Equinox to revive Prince Ba'al the rain and vegetation god of ancient
    Canaan. If you are wondering about where the head of John the Baptist
    comes into this, we will solve that mystery also. Our special guest for
    this program will be Frater Heracles of our Austin, Texas lodge who just
    presented a spectacular Festival of Seven Gates and will give us his
    first hand impressions of this revived ancient rite and how it is done
    in the 21st century. So, if you want to know where the Dance of the
    Seven Veils started -- and is still going -- tune in and chant: "Down
    and down the path we go, to the caverns far below!"
