Series 2 Episode 7: We open with the first part of ‘Liber 930’ from Phoenix–and other Stellar Rites of Initiation, the Neophyte ritual. Our discussion begins with ‘The Way to Bubastis or Way of Knowledge’. The Left-hand path is frequently identified with heterodox practices that are sometimes condemned as ‘immoral’ by the profane. We begin, therefo…
 
Series 2 Episode 6: We open with a reading and comment on Thunder Perfect Mind. The Gnostic scripture has proved baffling to scholars, yet the enigmatic text resonates with the voice of Babalon as heard through the ages. We present here a new translation of the text that may inspire those sensitive to the Call of Isis. Part Two resumes with ‘Love i…
 
Series 2 Episode 5: We have arrived at the heart of Babalon Unveiled! Thelemic Monographs. In the Scarlet Woman “is all power given”. The Serpent Power animates the life of the Scarlet Woman, radiating from the ‘star’ contained within her. Above the Abyss, the Scarlet Woman is the body of Nuit, the company of heaven. Down the ages, the feminine cre…
 
Series 2 Episode 4: We open the programme with the Ultimate Tarot Journey. This is not a pathworking but an investigation into the ingenious placement of the 22 trumps on the paths of the Tree of Life. We here place the Tarot in a context never previously discussed or written about. The second part of the broadcast resumes the readings from Babalon…
 
Series 2 Episode 3: Previously, we have discussed the Thelemic Gnosis independently of the mainstream or orthodoxy. Esoteric Thelema returns the Gnosis to its ancient Egyptian source. There is no need to appeal to the writings of Crowley or his epigones. We have begun an enquiry into magical polarity and the role of Babalon or the Scarlet Woman in …
 
Series 2 Episode 2: We resume Lapis Philosophorum, the Stone of the Wise, the first monograph in the book Babalon Unveiled. In the previous episode we gave additional background information on the way that knowledge of the true state of affairs concerning ancient Egypt has been suppressed. After that, we summarised the development of spiritual, rel…
 
Series 2 Episode 1: In this new series, we will focus on Esoteric Thelema and the book, Babalon Unveiled! Thelemic Monographs. We will reveal that Thelema is an extremely ancient initiatory path that predates the Indian and Tibetan Tantras, the Greek and Persian Mysteries, and even Dynastic Egypt. Since the early 90s at least, scholars have been un…
 
Episode 21: We continue with the extraordinary fiction writing of Lord Dunsany. His early tale, Journey of the King, explored realms of Qabalah, magick and the Nightside years before Aleister Crowley and Kenneth Grant did so in a more technical manner. Here is the second and final part of the story, Journey of the King, from Time and the Gods by Lo…
 
Episode 20: We will discuss the extraordinary fiction writing of Lord Dunsany. His early tale, Journey of the King, explored and even illustrated realms of Qabalah, magick and the Nightside years before Aleister Crowley and Kenneth Grant did so in a more technical manner. Oliver St. John reads the entire story, Journey of the King, Part Two of Time…
 
Episode 19: We discuss Liber 373, the seven rites and seven seals of the Dragon Star. The Dragon Star is a series of tantrik initiations that has its basis in the Qabalah and Hermetic Tree of Life. The Elizabethan sorcerer and alchemist John Dee provided the blueprint for this. We also take a look at the Magick of Earth and Stars, for terrestrial a…
 
Episode 18: We discuss Thelemic mysticism, with a particular emphasis on the practical side of things. The saints and sages down the ages were not all ‘up in the clouds’. We will demonstrate this with some readings from The Confessions of Jacob Boehme. Boehme had some encouraging and helpful advice to anyone facing the trials and tribulations of th…
 
Episode 17: We will look at the book entitled, The Phoenix and other Stellar Rites of Initiation. Heather Carmen and Oliver St. John perform a dramatisation of some of the Phoenix Ritual. We also include here Astrology of the Holy Guardian Angel Part Two. We cover what Edwin C. Steinbrecher called ‘Alien Powers’ in a natal horoscope. © Oliver St. J…
 
Episode 16: We move on to the grade of Dominus Liminis and investigate relations between the Holy Guardian Angel and the astrological natal chart. We therefore include an overview of the subject of Hermetic Astrology. Astrology is frequently neglected by modern students, and sometimes even completely ignored. We will use as case studies the horosco…
 
The grade of Philosophus 4=7 is here discussed. We look at the subject of building an Astral Temple. The magical temple is conceived as a pyramid in the grade of Neophyte, but it does not stop there. The ‘Z’ formula by which the Probationer passes to Neophyte is used for talismans, evocation and all manner of magical work. We therefore take a look …
 
Here is the second and final part of the H. P. Lovecraft short story, The Haunter of the Dark, narrated by Oliver St. John. © Oliver St. John 2016 © ‘Endecha’ Prelude in D Minor by Francisco Tarrega performed and recorded by Oliver St. John; ‘Transition (improvisation)’ by Oliver St. John.

In Episode 12 of this series we discussed the new book, ‘Dreaming Thelema of Kenneth Grant and H. P. Lovecraft’. The book features 17 surrealist paintings created as part of the project. It also includes three complete short stories by H. P. Lovecraft: Nyarlathotep, The Crawling Chaos, and The Haunter of the Dark, plus a reconstruction of the Lovec…
 
A short lecture on the grade of Practicus, the third initiated degree. We will be discussing various aspects of the grade work and Ordo Astri, the Order of the Star. Also included is an entertaining, illustrated talk focussed on the new book, ‘Dreaming Thelema of Kenneth Grant and H. P. Lovecraft’. This includes readings from two H. P. Lovecraft st…
 
Temple of Babalon Podcast, Episode 11: Thelema: Romance of the Magical Orders. “What is a valid magical Order?” “What is Thelema?” These are frequently asked questions. As there is so much doubt and confusion around Thelemic magical Orders, Oliver St. John discusses the question of validity. He also provides an in-depth examination of what Thelema …
 
This podcast episode features an in-depth interview with Oliver St. John, who is usually the host of this podcast. Oliver St. John is the author of books on a range of esoteric subjects, including the magical philosophy of Thelema, Hermetic Qabalah, ritual magick, esoteric astrology and the Tarot. He is also the founder of Ordo Astri, an internatio…
 
We are still dealing with the grade of Zelator, the second initiated degree. The grade of Zelator is symbolised by Yesod on the Hermetic Tree of Life, and symbolises the full entry into Yetzirah, the Qabalistic world better known as the Astral Plane. We will be discussing various aspects of the grade work. In addition, we will discuss the technique…
 
We now pass from the grade of Neophyte to that of Zelator, the second initiated degree. The grade of Zelator is symbolised by Yesod on the Hermetic Tree of Life, so sometimes the 2=9 grade or Second Degree is called the grade of Air. This seems an appropriate time to discuss Enochian Magick and, in particular, the magical operation called the Skryi…
 
Who or what is this Devil, adored by the witches? The term itself, “Witches Sabbath”, is archaic and bound up with many false trails. A Catholic clergyman dreamed up ‘Witchcraft’ in the 15th century – and all the trappings of frogs, black cats and women riding upon broomsticks. It was the same notion that sent thousands of women and men to the stak…
 
Previously we explored some of the work of a Neophyte in the magical grade of Earth, especially the formula of magical talismans. Here we continue with the grade of Neophyte, and will complete our discussion of magical talismans with a dramatisation of the ceremonial method of consecrating and charging a talisman with the powers of Mercury, under t…
 
Temple of Babalon Podcast 05: Previously we explored the Lesser Ritual of the Pentagram and the Middle Pillar Exercise. We now pass from the grade of Probationer to that of Neophyte, the first initiated degree. The grade of Neophyte is symbolised by Malkuth on the Hermetic Tree of Life, so sometimes the 1=10 grade or First Degree is called the grad…
 
Temple of Babalon Podcast 04: Previously we explored the Lesser Ritual of the Pentagram in detail. Continuing with the Foundation work of a Probationer, we will now discuss a cornerstone of modern Hermetic Tantra-Yoga, known as the Middle Pillar Exercise. Later in the broadcast, Heather Carmen will take us through a step-by-step guide to the Middle…
