    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.

    "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."

    Connecting With Your Inner Teacher.

    in Spirituality

    Perhaps you have heard people say to follow your intuition or connect with your Spirit Guide.  What are some ways in which we might be able to raise our conscious awareness of our own Inner Teacher and better connect with this Power on a higher level?  In this episode I will hit on some insights I have picked up from Mysticism, Hermeticism, Wicca and even AA.  As usual, I do not speak for any of these institutions, but share from my own experience, strength, and hope concerning these matters.  Once connected to our Inner Teacher a new world of discovery opens up for us.  But connecting is only the beginning.  Strengthening that connection and following the teachings recieved wisely are continuing areas of growth along the path.

    Unity & Diversity: Celebrating The Oneness With Eyes Wide Open!

    in Spirituality

    We live in a world of war and hardship.  A world in which division is preached by all the major media outlets with an "us vs. them" mentality.  At the same time we teach Oneness; the understanding that all is connected in bonds that can not ultimately be shaken.  How do we celebrate the Oneness while at the same time not glossing over the "realities" we experience of division and disconnectedness?  Here I give my thoughts as to how we might Celebrate The Oneness With Eyes Wide Open.

    Guardian Angels & Spirit Guides.

    in Spirituality

    The Samaritans, Good and Otherwise

    in Radio

    On Thursday August 13th, 2015 The Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will present a discussion on the Samaritans, and their position in Biblical and historical Palestine in relation to Magick and Qabalah. Poke will be joined by our Biblical scholar Frater Solomon. We will mention a remarkable discovery we have made in reviewing the newly translated Samaritan Torah, that tends to support our revision of the
    Tetragrammaton. We will also discuss the Samaritan Book of Joshua and Budge's comments indicating that the Samaritans developed gematria before the Judeans. Also that famous, or infamous Samaritan magician Simon Magus. Did he really fly? So if you want to find out what the "cursed Cutheans" have been up to tune in and we will climb Mount Gerizim.
