BLK Celebration 2019 – Caroline Wise Returns!

Caroline Wise provided many highlights of last year’s Chicago BLK Celebration. It is our honour to have her back for BLK Celebration 2019

Caroline Wise 

presents

Finding the Deer Mother in the Cults of the Shadows

Elen

Much of the light that has been cast on the mysteries of the goddess Elen of the Ways has come from the research of Caroline Wise. In this talk, she will inform and involve the audience while delving into animal masks and forms that cloak our earliest deities, following the deer goddess across the earth and sky, with her allies and foes.

Caroline

Caroline inaugurated the re-publishing of Kenneth’s Grant‘s books in the late 1980s which paved the way for his the unpublished works to see the light. She has been an occult bookshop owner, a psychic quester, and priestess of the goddess, who has contributed to several books – on goddesses, on Florence Farr, and on Legendary London. She compiled the book Finding Elen, the Quest for Elen of the Ways, about the forgotten deer goddesses.

In providing information regarding this posting, she also mentioned that she is “rather fond of The Black Lotus Kult“.

We love you too Caroline!

In a collaboration with Black Lotus KultKindle Cimmerian and Caroline have created a special illustrative performance to accompany this talk to bring the Goddess into the room.

BLK Celebration 2019 – Dr Chris Giudice presents “And the Phoenix is Reborn: Some Historical Notes on The Process Church of the Final Judgment”

We are excited to announce a presentation for BLK Celebration 2019

Dr. Chris Giudice

will deliver

“And the Phoenix is Reborn: Some Historical Notes on The Process Church of the Final Judgment”

“CHRIST said: Love your enemies.
CHRIST’s Enemy was SATAN
and SATAN’s Enemy was CHRIST.
Through Love enmity is destroyed.”

Robert de Grimston

Process cross
What had begun as a small self-psychotherapy group in the heart of swinging 60s London, turned out, in time to be one of the most influential new religious movements: the literature on the Process is increasing year by year, and the influence of Robert and Mary Ann de Grimston’s creation has influenced fringe culture in a massive way, from Psychick TV to Sabbath Assembly, from the New Processean Order to reprints of de Grimston’s most popular books. Turn on, tune in, drop out: in this lecture, Chris Giudice will provide a historical overview of the Process’s development, from Scientology splinter group to Animal Shelter NGO, from the psychedelic 60s to the burn-out experienced in the 70s. The four archetypes of Jehovah, Jesus, Satan and Lucifer will be analysed and explained, as will the different shock tactics employed by the Process to draw more followers in their ranks.

Chris
Dr Chris Giudice is an independent scholar, who has lectured widely on subjects ranging from 19th and 20th century occultism, to psychedelic new religious movements, to occultism in politics and avant-garde cinema.
Having obtained a BA in Classics from the University of Oxford, he went on to achieve an MA in Western esotericism at the University of Exeter and a PhD in Religious Studies at the University of Gothenburg.
For ten years he was the lead singer of eso-neofolk band The Green Man, publishing 3 albums and 1 ep and touring extensively across Europe. He is now leader of the industrial project Rosy Cross & the Children of Ra Hoor Khuit and is working on his debut album.
Chris is a member of La Société Voudon Gnostique, and is currently working on a volume on Ludwig Klages’s Lebensphiosophie in relation to JJ Bachofen’s concept of Matriarchy (Mutterecht), and its possible practical applications.

BLK Celebration 2018 – Michael Bertiaux and Martin Starr!!!

A very special event has been added to the Saturday portion of

BLK Celebration

“The Occult History of Chicago”

Featuring Michael Bertiaux and Martin Starr

Chitown

Martin and Michael will have a live discussion on Saturday entitled “The Occult History of Chicago.” Michael is internationally known through his books and art, but he was a young man with a dream when he arrived in Wheaton, IL in the 1960’s to report for his job with the Theosophical Society. He traveled frequently for lectures to Chicago, and fell in love with the city. Although readers of his work know about his Gnostic Voudon rituals, Church Orders and the work of the Ordo Templi Orientis Antiqua & La Couleuvre Noire and other groups he worked with over the years, Chicago’s occult history stretches back considerably further. Michael has an insatiable lust for knowledge, and being immersed in these bizarre legacies energized him and inspired him to discover more. Over the years, he has learned of the people, places and things of Hidden Chicago, and is eager to share these tales before they are lost.

This talk will cover the little-known “hot points” of the city’s esoteric history with a long-time participant/observer.

BLK Chi

Martin P. Starr is an independent scholar of Western Esotericism and New Religious Movements with four decades of research and writing on the English synthetic occultist Aleister Crowley and his disciples Wilfred Talbot Smith, Charles Stansfeld Jones, C. F. Russell and Kenneth Grant. His current academic interests revolve around the interplay of Neo-Rosicrucianism, Independent Eucharistic Church Movements, Theosophy, and Freemasonry.
