WHO AM I?
When I was five I had one of those weird experiences. The kind that feels like a glimpse behind the curtain of a play, the rigging and boards behind the set. I never shook that feeling that there was more to our minds and our lives than was being taught.
When I was a teenager I started trying to peek behind that veil again, and studied everything I could find on magic, mysticism, and the occult. I got those glimpses I was looking for, and I learned how to make use of what I was learning, how to make a better life and a better mind.
For over a decade I studied both High Ceremonial Magic and folk magic techniques of Rootwork and Witchcraft. I found that together, each approach strengthened the other and made for a Sorcery that could be streamlined for the modern world, and be startlingly effective.
I still wanted to go deeper though: more wisdom, more power, more liberation.
So I did what all my childhood mystical superheroes like Dr Strange, Mandrake, The Shadow, and Dr Doom did: I moved to the Himalayas.
It was in Nepal that I crossed the abyss and underwent the initiations I would need to do Sorcery the way that I knew it could be done. A practice that integrated the very best of training for the mind/body/spirit with influences from key spiritual powers. A practice that could send one on a journey to the deepest and highest planes and states of being, and bring back the power and mojo to change the waking world for the better.
This is Strategic Sorcery.
It is what my life has been about for nearly 30 years, and I want to share it.
