First Free! Ritual Magic Webinar Report


Golden Dawn Imperator
David Griffin

"Today we got off to a great start with the Ritual Magic Coaching Webinar series offered by the Alpha Omega as a free service for Self-Initiates and Solitary Practitioners of the Golden Dawn and the wider esoteric community.

We had quite a diverse crowd of 47 different participants. In attendance was Professor Paolo Portone from the Center of Ethnohistorical Research in Italy, as well as participants from multiple cities all across the country, from New York to California here in the USA, in addition to participants from Germany, France, Thailand, England, Ireland, Australia, Poland, Latvia, Brazil, Romania, Guatemala, Columbia, as well as Sao Paolo, Rio de Janeiro, and Brasilia in Brazil.

It would appear that the sphere of influence of the Alpha Omega is growing day by day all around the world. We were mostly surprised by the wide diversity of attendees. It seems there is great interest in the Golden Dawn System of Ritual Magic not only in the Golden Dawn community, but also the academic, Pagan, and Thelemic communities as well.

Here is what aspiring Magicians who attended had to say after the Webinar:

"This webinar was amazing! Thank you so much LeS for setting up such a wonderfully thought-provoking and enlightening session for all magicians to attend. Sadly I had to leave only after an hour." - Frater LUA 
"Thank you for this Webinar! It was really great experience to feel community spirit and also learn illuminating and the most practical suggestions how to use Ritual Magick in everydays life. Attendendence was so active that it was even hard to follow your teaching sometimes:-), but the overall experience was just GREAT!! Thank you once more." - Soror M.S.M.

Immanuel Kant
During the Webinar, we discussed a number of fundamental subjects, beginning with the importance of transmuting our inner world for the success of Practical Magic in the outer, to difficulties one participant was having in daily life, to a discussion of whether the Magical Forces are subjectively or objectively real. For this discussion I touched briefly on the Epistemology of both Immanuel Kant and Karl Popper.

Karl Popper
We covered several important fundamentals of Ritual Magic from the point of view of Hermetic Science, illustrated using practical issues raised by the group. For example, I illustrated several key fundamentals of Practical Magic, in replying to one participant how to use Ritual Magic in order to quit smoking more easily and effectively.

As promised, we have sent out free electronic copies of the Ritual Magic Manual to all participants who requested one.

There was, however, one sour note during the Webinar. Although there is not supposed to be a cap, our Chat Room software today would not allow more than 25 participants in at a time. Therefore, a dozen or so participants were forced to lurk and were only able to post questions as other participants left the Webinar.

I have therefore agreed to teach and extra Webinar in English next Sunday, November 4 at 12:00 PM PST. Please note that this is the day when daylight savings time ends in the USA, so you will want to note this in calculating the time change. 

If today's Webinar was indication, you will want to log into the Chat Room of the Golden Dawn Blog early, to guarantee you get a seat next time around!

Sincerely,

Imperator David Griffin

  1. Thank you Imperator L.e.S. for putting this into action and bringing us together. It allowed me yet another opportunity to take the cotton out of my ears and put it in my mouth. Most of the time. I loved it.

  4. This webinar was amazing! Thank you so much LeS for setting up such a wonderfully thought-provoking and enlightening session for all magicians to attend. Sadly I had to leave only after an hour. Out of curiosity, if we left early are we still eligible for a copy of the RMM?

  6. Luna--given the fact that it is PST, you are one of the few people who just needs to look at the clock (provided that you remembered to reset your clock from the daylight saving time shift) to know the proper time.
