On Thursday September 18th, 2014 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon
will present a discussion on the career and contributions of Marcus the Valentinian (died 175 a.d.). Marcus was as much a Hermetic as he was a
Gnostic Christian. The Church Fathers accused him of being more Pythagorean than Christian. He was the developer of the Soma Sophia system of celestial Greek qabalah which we have decoded and perfected (see The Seventh Ray, Book III ) and, according to Kiren Barry Marcus had an influence of the creation of the later Sepher Yetzirah. Marcus developed some of the basic concepts of what became the qabalah. Marcus was a Phonecian, influenced by the earlier Samaritan Simon Magus. Like Simon Marcus had a Priestess whom he venerated as an equal. He gave communion with his priestess by his side and turned water into wine at the altar. The early Church Fathers considered this blasphemous.
Marcus's cult spread from the Middle East to Southern France in the days
before Constantine force-reformed Christianity. So, if you want to explore the most ancient origins of what we call "The Western Tradition," then tune in and we will spend an hour with a man who may have been the first Rosicrucian.
The Hermetic Hour for Thursday, May 24th, 2012 will feature a discussion by host Poke Runyon on the life and works of Israel Regardie. We will focus on Regardie's contributions to the modern occult revival starting with his early book "The Tree of Life," his experiences acting as personal secretary to Aleister Crowley, his membership in the Stella Matutina (Golden Dawn) his subsequent publication of their material, his support for the revival of the O.T.O. in the 1970s, and the G.D. in the 1980s. Having known Regardie personally, and having a long association with Regardie's chosen successors, host Poke Runyon is able to resolve the question uppermost in minds of many who seek to fathom the enigma of Regardie's personal philosophy: was he a Thelemite, or was he a Rosicrucian? The answer is he was one or the other, depending on what he thought you needed -- but he never recommended mixing the two systems. So, if you want to meet the real Israel Regardie, tune in be enlightened.
On Thursday May 28th, 2015 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will have as its special guest Frater Julian of the Benjamin Franklin Encampment who is an expert in Pennsylvania folklore relating to witchcraft and magick. We will be discussing his paper on the mysterious Roman family in the colonial Quaker community, Johannes Kelpius "The Wizard of Wissahickon," and his Cave of Kelpius, and Apocalyptic prophecy in the 1690s. The Epherata Rosicrucian Cloister, then moving up toward modern times with Dutch pow-wow, hexcraft, the curious case of the Hexencat and its capture. The York County 1920s Hex murder case. So if you want to catch up on your American occult and witchcraft heritage be sure to tune in for Weird Pennsylvania
on the air.
Rosicrucian's don't expect you to accept anything on faith. We want you to think for yourself, to learn how to draw upon the higher knowledge already within you. What we provide are simply the tools to enable you to accomplish this. The Rosicrucian teachings contain practical exercises and experiments that allow you to demonstrate for yourself the principles presented in the lessons and to access your own source of inner wisdom and guidance. As you do this, you'll begin developing natural abilities that may have been left dormant throughout your life. Almost immediately you'll begin to see your life in a different light.
Join me as I share my thoughts from WITH THE ADEPTS-AN ADVENTURE AMONGST THE ROSICRUCIANS,BY FRANZ HARTMANN
Franz Hartmann(1838-1912) was a german medical doctor,theosophist,astrologer and author.
His works include several books on esoteric studies and biographies of Jacob Bohme and Paracelsus. He translated the Bhagavad Gita into German and was the editor of the journal Lotusbluten. He was at one time a co-worker of Helena Blavatsky at Adyer. In 1896 he founded a German Theosophical Society. According to Theodor Reuss he was one of the original founders of the magical Order that would later be known as Ordo Templi Orientis, along with Reuss and Carl Kellner.
The following account is the experience of Franz Hartmann which was gathered in notes by a friend and the reader is left to decide if this experience was a dream or an actual experience on the astral plane.

Join Fiona Benjamin and Michael "Uncle Monkey" Lennon on Thursday March 5th 2015 7pm Eastern Time for a night of divination and rootwork with Divination Divas, Elizabeth Ruth and Lorena Seals! They will be discussing how to allow spirit to guide divination when performing rootwork and also how to handle clients who may be difficult, in a professional setting.
Elizabeth Ruth is a practicing Rootworker and Diviner in Chicago, IL. She was raised by her maternal grandparents in a small town in Ohio. Her grandmother was an astrologer who communicated with the dead. When she was growing up, Gede (Vodou spirits of the Dead) always visited her family right before someone died. She is often sought out for readings when clients are at a crossroads in their life and need the spiritual guidance to move ahead in the right direction. She Vodouisant and a Christian Witch. She differs from other psychic readers in that she sees this work as her ministry. Her work as a spiritual life coach has changed many lives for better, and this is her mission as a Worker.
Born into a family of Magic and Mystery, She is a natural Witch, born and raised along the banks of the Mississippi River. Learned in the ways of Hoodoo & Conjure as taught by Her Grandmother and Great Aunt, Lorena has studied the Tarot since the age of ten. Lorena grew up in a Christian Baptist household, where her grandmother served as the Prophetess of their local church, and was a well known Root-Woman; for her there was no separation between religion and magick. Ancestor Veneration and acknowledgment of deities outside of Christianity were an integral part of her upbringing. Actively practicing Magick for over 25 years, she is also a dedicated Rosicrucian and Martinist, and currently serves as initiated Circe Priestess of The Mystai - a Coven focused on the Lunar Mysteries of Hekate.She is a Diviner, Witch, and Spiritual Counselor.
Evolution Through Contact – Becoming a Cosmic Citizen.
Since much in these chapters is biographical, we can cut right to the core concepts I am trying to get across. I use some examples from my life to illustrate some points, but tonight with a live audience I want to make it more about you, and I encourage you to call in to join the conversation. You can get the rest from my book if you wish.
Topics tonight will be how family, friends, or career may interfere with Paranormal Interests.
Would speaking about a paranormal experience affect your relationship with family or friends, or co-workers, or worse, would it affect your career potential?
How much are you expected to conform, and how willing are you to push the boundaries in order to speak your truth?
How much psychological harm might it do (or has it done) to you if you feel forced to keep a really extraordinary event in your life bottled up inside you for years or even decades? Share anonymously with us, and find some healing for not only for yourself, but also for others who are still finding the courage to speak their truth.
We will finish up with the concept of Creative Visualization, and add an extra relatively unknown step that the Rosicrucian’s have been teaching for a very long time. This extra step makes the manifestation process much more powerful, and could give you the key to attaining what you want in life. Don’t miss this! After explaining the process, I will lead you through a meditation using this technique that you can practice throughout the week and actually forever. It is one of our gifts to you.
On Thursday December 18th, 2014 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will present a discussion on the Mission Statement of the Church of the Hermetic Sciences and the Ordo Templi Astartes. This is one of the topics that was discussed at our last Board of Director's Meeting as especially important with our membership increasing and new lodges begin opening around the country. In the magical community we are known as the folks that know how to make ritual magick work, but that in itself is not enough of a reason for people to join us unless they simply want to learn our techniques and methods to use for their own purposes. Frankly, that is not what we are here for and we are not teaching magick so that it can be misused. We consider magick to be a system of mental and spiritual development that leads to what we refer to as enlightenment -- which we define as a close personal relationship with God. We follow a pattern of hermetic mytho-philosophy born in Alexandria in the first century and perfected by the Renaissance neo-platonic/hermetic magi in 14th-15th-16th century Europe culminating in the Rosicrucian tradition. We combine paganisn, Qabalah, astrology and alchemy in line with Jungian psychology in a neo-romantic Quest for the Holy Grail based on a linage of eternal goddesses and dying gods from the time of Melchizedek to the beginnings of Christianity. So, if you have wondered just why we do what we do and where we are going with it, tune in and be enlightened.
