My Life with the Spirits by Lon Milo DuQuette
My Life with the Spirits is a rare glimpse into the fascinating, sometimes terrifying, sometimes hilarious world of a modern ceremonial magician. Hailed by critics as the most entertaining author in the field and one of the most widely respected members of the magick community, Lon Milo DuQuette gently draws you into the introspective world of the modern magician, tickles you with hilarious observations and self-effacing confessions, then (often in the same paragraph) slams you in the heart with breathtaking profundities.
DuQuette’s most impressive quality is that in spite of his many accomplishments he doesn’t take himself too seriously, which makes what he has to say all the more appealing. He’s been through experiences that many Americans can relate to from his “agonizing years of Sunday School” and service as an altar boy, to riding the waves of the cultural revolution of the 60s. After sorting through an abundance of spiritual paths, he finally came upon one that resonated with him. By shedding light on his own development — as a person and a magician — DuQuette provides a beacon for aspiring magicians everywhere.
Lon Milo DuQuette (born July 11, 1948), also known as Rabbi Lamed Ben Clifford and by his neo-Gnostic bishop title of Tau Lamed] is an American writer, lecturer, musician, and occultist, best known as an author who applies humor in the field of Western Hermeticism.
