While I continue to make good progress on my gaming stuff (and have had a ton of fun RPG brainstorming sessions with Aaron this week) the highlight definitely had to be my talk at the Theosophical Society in Maryland this past Sunday.

For my disclosure on this or any of my post or pages… please visit my Disclosure page.

While I seemed to experience the usual technical difficulties any time I try to use technology (I really tried to break the habit this time) I still managed to salvage the majority of my lecture on either video or at least audio. These was the first recordings I’ve even tried to make with my new virgin Canon Powershot (a gift from my siblings) and Blue Snowball mic and (thank the gods!) I ended up getting better results than I’d anticipated. While it does look like I lost something like fifteen minutes (or so) out of the middle somewhere, the majority of the talk remains…

It was quite cool to see this as I entered the Theosophical Society

There was a good turnout to the talk, but I’d vastly underestimated the time I’d need to cover everything I’d prepared, so I’m going to end up stretching the “Magick 101” class into a second talk (“Magick 102”) on February 26th, and then I’ll do the “Magickal Accoutrements” class sometime in like March or April. Next class I’m hoping a few friends from the Temple of the Western Gate crew will be able to make it, as we’re planning to hold our February gathering at our home the evening before.

One of the attendees wanted to chat quite a bit after class. She wanted my advice on a peculiar magickal matter she felt she was experiencing, and I shared a few insights. She may also want to engage my services as a magician in a more professional manner, which of course I told her was a possibility. She’d even gone so far as to give me a gift and a card which she had prepared prior to me even giving the talk, so that was quite encouraging. In fact, others have been asking my magickal advice of late as well. I just hope I’m dispensing worthwhile advice…

Upon participants’ request, I also put together some resources based on some of the planetary and zodiacal material I’d reviewed in the class. I also plan to use it to create some of the video material (especially for the sections I don’t actually have video for) and since I made it to share with them, I’ll share it here too (pretty straight forward stuff…).

I also sent the coordinators at the Theosophical Society my revised write up for the second part of the first lecture. Of course, I’ll need to get those videos freaking up on YouTube first before anyone will potentially care, but I made so much progress on the videos already, I feel like I just have one final sweep of edits and it’ll be ready for public consumption (relatively speaking)…

MAGICK 102 - Introduction to the Fundamentals

Robert Randle continues his lecture series as he leads participants on a conceptual journey continuing further "down" the Tree of Life.  Come learn some of the basic concepts of magickal theory and practice, and how you can apply those principles to your own life... to begin performing your own magick today! 

Topics will cover (and correlate) such concepts as Qabbalah, the Five Elements, the Planets and Zodiac, the Chakras, the Alphabet of Desire, the Holy Guardian Angel (HGA), the Unconscious Mind, the Seven Hermetic Principles, the real difference between Black and White Magick, and much more. 

The class will culminate with applying all this knowledge to performing what is often considered the most fundamentally important first ritual for a magician to learn, the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram (LBRP). Group participation in the ritual portion of this class is encouraged, but not required.

With the New Moon upon us, I’ve been throwing myself into learning Window Live Movie Maker, and trying to edit my lecture into something with some actual consumable content. Things seem to be going well, and work seems to be paying off, at least energetically speaking.
I just have to keep on keepin’ on…
