Lecture: Austin Osman Spare - Man, Myth, & Magick

Zos Speaks: “I am the Living Truth. Heaven is ecstasy; my consciousness changing and acquiring association. May I have the courage to take from my own superabundance.”

Emma Doeve will be presenting an introduction to Austin Osman Spare, probably the foremost Artist-Magician of the 20th Century. Examining Spare’s Life & Work from the point of view of both Fine Artist and magical practitioner, Emma will explore some of the sources of his inspiration, describe his mysterious muse and esoteric eroticism, and catalogue some of his individual and highly innovative contributions to both Art & the Occult and the Occult Arts.

Workshop: Know, Will, Dare - Sigil Strategies for Everyday Results

Emma will join Matthew for this exciting workshop on practical Visualisation techniques, with full details to follow.

Stay tuned!
