In podcast episode 95, internationally renowned magician, author, and teacher Lon Milo DuQuette returns to the show on the occasion of the publication of his book Low Magick: It’s All in Your Head … You Just Have No Idea How Big Your Head Is.
Lon tell us about Low Magick – both his book and the subject more generally, which in times past was referred to as thaumaturgy. Essentially the follow-up to his popular autobiography, My Life with the Spirits, Lon uses entertaining personal anecdotes in this book to explain the philosophy and basic principles of Solomonic magick.
“That’s why low magic, Solomonic magick, has garnered a bad and dangerous reputation … it’s serious stuff. Because any kind of change or improvement in your life is going to be a challenge.” – Lon Milo DuQuette
“It is a sad fact (at least from my perspective) that not everyone who picks up this book and thumbs through it will end up buying it. It is also true that not everyone who buys it and takes it home will read it from cover to cover. So, just in case these opening remarks are the only words you will ever read from this book, I’m going to immediately exploit this fleeting moment we have together and impart to you in large uppercase letters the most important secret of magick – and of life: DO NOT BE AFRAID! Now! If you’re short on time, please feel free to set the book down and fearlessly get on with your life.” – Lon Milo DuQuette, Low Magick: It’s All In Your Head … You Just Have No Idea How Big Your Head Is (Llewellyn Publications, 2010)
In the Occult of Personality Membership Section, Lon and I chat about his Tarot of Ceremonial Magick and much more.
