With ten days left to go, we have managed to raise over the half the target amount. I have been overwhelmed by the kindness, wonderful messages, and course feedback that Frater Acher and I have received. The magical community truly is a great family!
Some people have asked why we need to fundraise, and that is a very valid question that I feel deserves a proper, open, and honest answer. Continue reading
I have had a few different emails asking very sensible questions about how best to approach the Quareia course, so I hope this post answers those questions and others. Continue reading
The Quareia second module is now ready and will be soon uploaded. This module is about foundation patterns in magic. All magic exteriorises in a patterned form, usually as ritual, sometimes as an utterance or a series of sigils, which externalises the power and energy that the magician has tapped into. That power and energy is usually accessed through inner work, which is to say that first the magician connects through visionary magic with an inner energy and a consciousness (a being, a deity and so forth), and then bridges that energy in collaboration with a being, and gives it a form by working in ritual or with lettering, sigils, utterance, etc. That exteriorises the magic in our world and sends it off to do its job.

It has been one week since Quareia launched and the response has been wonderful. People are downloading the first module and are working with the lessons, the second module is two thirds written, and the fund raising is creeping slowly and steadily towards it’s target. Continue reading
Quareia is a course is uniquely written in that it does not work on a ‘style’ format: it is not ‘this type’ of magic or ‘that type’ of magic – it is pure magical technique without the dressing. The course builds the student’s inner and outer abilities at the same time, and it weaves the strands of magical knowledge and techniques in careful defined steps that all build one upon the other.

A couple of months ago I put up a website called ‘Choosing a Magical Path’ with the intention to bring together various schools of magic to talk about their work, what sort of students they are looking for etc. I also wrote texts on what to look out for with the various abuses, scams, overpricing, power games, etc.
I got into long detailed discussions with well known German adept Frater Acher and we came to the conclusion that a positive way forward, if we really did care about the future of magic, is to design and write a full and detailed magical training course that would be free and accessible for on line study.
