On the Hermetic Hour for January 20th, 2011 host Poke Runyon will present a discussion on "Sex Magick." The differences between Eastern and Western concepts will be explained. We will trace the origin of the Western "magical child" conception method from its Platonic, Gnostic and Kabbalistic roots, through the various modern versions, including the non-orgiastic "Karreza" method which is said to have derived from medieval chivalry. We will examine the Sacred Marriage (Hieros Gamos) and its ancient myth-ritual theme which became The Great Rite of the Modern Wiccans. We will look at the contributions of P. B. Randolph and his influence on Ruess and Kellnar's German system. Crowley and Kenneth Grant will be mentioned--and, modesty permitting, we will set forth the "dos" and "do nots" of effective practice--so snuggle up with your "significant other," tune in, and let's get it on!
