    An Unwitting Fraud: Franz Anton Mesmer

    in History

    There are many questions surrounding such a man as Franz Anton Mesmer. Most of which asking, exactly who was he? An unwitting swindler? A clever fraud? A revolutionary that the world has yet to appreciate, or perhaps simply a man who, his entire life, was in search of something more, but never truly discovered it.

  • 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.

    Mesmerism, Magnetism and Magic with Lee Gerrard-Barlow

    in Health

    Lee Gerrard-Barlow, owner of Arcana Therapies in London has been working Therapeutically with trance states ‘Meditational’ and ‘Yoga’ based practices for the last 20 Years. A N.L.P Master Practitioner, he also teaches the arts of Magnetism ( Mesmerism ) Fascination and ‘Presence based therapy'.

    Mesmerism is one of the touchstone forerunners of modern energy medicine. Explored in the late 1700s, Franz Mesmer hypothesized his healing results came through the enlightened use of a universal energy he called fluidum.  He postulated that fluidum was a subtle physical fluid that filled the universe and was the connecting medium between all living things, the earth and heavenly bodies. He found that the best source of this universal force was the human body itself and that the most active points of energetic flow were the palms of the hands.

    Please join your host, Subtle Energy Center CEO Cristina Smith in the Subtle Energy Salon for a fascinating conversation with one of the world's foremost experts on mesmerism and magnetism.

    Hypnosis Basics Part 3 … Generative Trance

    in Self Help

    Hypnosis Basics… Generative Trance

    Thursday February 6, 2014@ 1 pm (CST) Healthy Mind & Body radio presents…

    Hypnosis Basics… Generative Trance.

    Generative Trance is THE MOST EXCITING ADVANCE IN HYPNOSIS since Mesmer stopped attaching people to trees. (yes, he really did that)

    I first heard about this several years ago through Stephen Gilligan and his advanced hypnosis and trance camp workshops.

    Here’s the short version… everyone knows that the conscious mind and unconscious mind sometimes have conflicts between what you know or think you know and what reality is or think what reality is. But how come some people go to a hypnotist, or a healer, or to church or read a book and BAM, INSTANTIANEOUS PERMANENT CHANGE.

    Or someone will go to this person and that person and either gets no change of short-term relief from whatever it was that they went for. Until very recently, there were lots of ideas, excuse, blame, etc. There real reason one person gets a change and another does not is the person who got the change was able to convert his/her wants/needs/ desires into real time actions. ARE YOU CURIOUS TO KNOW MORE, YET?

    So let’s talk more today about how GENERATIVE TRANCE creates those proper conditions. If you have a question call 818-668-5406 or email me at drm@drmichaelharris.com

    Talk to you then,
