BLK Celebration 2018 – Caroline Wise presents “The Blood Red Cord of Isis”

We’ve previously announced that Caroline Wise will be presenting “Nuit, Isis and the Nu-Isis Lodge” at this year’s BLK Celebration. We are happy to note that she will be adding a supplemental session,

“The Blood Red Cord of Isis”.

Kenneth Grant tends to get lumped in with H.P. Lovecraft and UFOs in the casual conversations of internet occultist. His work is far more complex and spans a wide variety of subjects.

Caroline will take us through a lesson on “the Goddess behind it all” as background to her talk on the Nu-Isis Lodge.

Caroline in the Spare Room

Caroline Wise instigated the republishing of Kenneth Grant’s books at Skoob Esocterica in 1989, which led to previously unpublished works coming into the light, including Grant’s novellas. She co-edited ‘The Secret Lore of London’ with John Matthews (Hodder and Stoughton 2016) and has contributed to several books on the goddesses of the Ancient World; on Austin Osman Spare, tarot artist Pamela Coleman Smith, and on magician Florence Farr, whose Egyptian themed plays she produced at The Rudolph Steiner Theatre in 1993. She gives talks and workshops on the goddesses in Britain, and in USA, Germany and Italy. She works with Starfire Publishing and has a special interest in the work of Kenneth Grant.
