William Kiesel is the man behind Ouroboros Press, the highly esteemed occult publisher bookarts.org as well as the founder of the annual Esoteric Book Conference in the Northwest. William has been a practitioner of Hermetic Qabalah for over 30 years, a study he developed from his life-long interest in symbol systems. An international speaker and lecturer, he has authored books such as Magic Circles in the Grimoire Tradition, and he is also the proprietor at Seattle’s esoteric emporium Mortlake and Company.
You may have experienced William’s teachings in person as a guest at the Arboretum Mysticum occult Lodge or through his Lunar Mansions lecture offered by 22 Teachings in the past, and William holds a special place in our lineage as he is my first teacher of Hermetic Qabalah and my initiator into the Western Mystery tradition.
William will be illuminating us in this fascinating series, through lecture and ceremonial teachings. Each night will take place on the Zoom platform from 7-9pm PST. All three nights are required for sign up. We will be recording if you are unable to attend any of the 3.
June 4th: William will unlock the understanding of Alchemy and Alchemical Symbolism.
June 5th: We will follow William down the path of discovering The Royal Art where he will tap into topics like Animal Symbolism, The Chymical Wedding, and Alchemical Maxims.
June 6th: He will close the series by helping us take the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram to a new level by touching upon topics such as “Elements in alchemy and ceremonial magic”, “Permutation as a principle”, “The Rotation of the Elements”, and “Qabalistic approach to Elemental Permutation”.
It is recommended that students have a basic Qabalistic knowledge and proficiency with the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram before participating in this working. To RSVP and to read more details about this event, CLICK HERE
