• Interview with Peer Ynt - A Journey through Initiation Into Hermetics

    A big thank you to Peer Ynt (not his real name) for agreeing to this interview and for being so thorough in his answers. I wanted to do this interview as though Peer has not fully completed Initiation into Hermetics (our normal requirement for interviews) he has infact almost completed the book and made many interesting observations on the journey. I include his links within the interview so you can see and follow his work. If you enjoy this interview then please do let us know in the comments a…

  • The Dragon Tarot: The Inner Circle and The Triangle

    This post I thought was nessecary as there is some amazing work being produced which I think deserves a larger audience. We as a blog are tiny but every little counts. So I really hope you like the look of this book produced in part by one of our interviewees, Andre Consciencia. It cointains within it I beleive a huge amount of work of great value to someone who is beyond step 8 of IIH and begining to explore the spheres. Even if you are not at that point I think it would still be a great book…

  • Self Mastery with Sixty Skills: What can you expect to achieve?

    Recently Bob has been like a machine producing lots of great info for the community. His courses in my opinion help accelerate your training by really helping you to see the process as something that can be measured and logically structured. These are my words by the way not Bobs. But as there have been more and more questions about these courses and what they offer an indivual I thought it best to contact Bob for some clarity on what a motivated indivual can achieve with his udemy courses and …

  • Interview with Michael Lamb - Students of Franz Bardon Community Questions Answered

    An exciting interview today from Michael Lamb (Scroll down), a long term pracitioner who has a lot to share. Originally this was going to be transcribed in a similar way to our other interviews, but after hearing the depth of the answers Michael was providing and the way he shared his story I felt we needed to change our usual way of presenting these interviews on this occasion and simply provide the direct audio of Michaels answers. In doing this I have created a podcast channel so perhaps in t…

  • Sifu Mark Rasmus: New Book Release and Online Training

    Hello I am sure you may have heard about Sifu Mark Rasmus's new book 'Backdoor Into Hermetics'. I wanted to do a quick post on it as I think this may well be a massive turning point in many peoples training which in turn can have a massive effect on the community with so many more people managing to reach the higher steps and move onto the later book. I think this is one book dare I say all Bardonists could benefit from as even if you are advanced and require no outside assistance (After step …
