BLK Celebration 2022 Speaker – Ariock Van de Voorde presents London Calling

Our annual Black Lotus Kult Celebration will return this 5, Nov in London, where we will proudly present

One Beyond Ten

A Celebration of the works of Kenneth and Steffi Grant


At BLK Celebration 2022, Ariock Van de Voorde will present

 London Calling

Books can change lives, and a copy of Aleister Crowley and the Hidden God found in a public library certainly did just that for Ariock Van de Voorde. He later opened an occult bookstore where Kenneth Grant’s titles were always featured, and where he founded a ritual collective loosely based on the Nu Isis Lodge.

Years later, Ariock co-founded Black Lotus Kult, which he runs with Kindle Cimmerian and Hagen von Tulien under the guidance of Michael Bertiaux. At this year’s BLK Celebration, Ariock will discuss his personal history with work in the Typhonian Current leading to the phone call he received regarding Kenneth Grant’s death 10 years ago, and where we go next on this journey.


Ariock is a musician and writer currently living in the Mid-South region of the United States. Is a co-founder and director of Ophidian art collective Black Lotus Kult, and is a contributor to several books, journals and audio recordings under his own name, and under the occasional alternate nom de guerre.

Ariock is currently working on music albums with Black Lotus Kult, on a Bertiaux art/music collaboration with the reunited Wendy is Starting At Me, and on a collaboration with artist Charlie Martineau. His primary current writing projects include a book about Esoteric Zen and the Cosmic Dante Current and a short work on experience with the entity LAM.

He wants it known that his dog is better than yours.


We will converge on 5 November in Camden Town  for an evening of discussions on aspects of and experiences with the Typhonian Current.

Due to venue considerations, the event’s location will not be published, and will be sent to those wishing to attend as demand or space allows. Please send an email to for specifics if you wish to attend.

Starfire is republishing the Typhonian Trilogies, and you can find those currently available HERE

BLK Celebration 2018 – Sashah Ruge presents “Lovecraftian Mythos in the the Voudon Gnostic Universe: An introductory look into Bertiaux’s Lovecraftian Coven”

We are proud to announce that Sashah Ruge will be contributing to BLK Celebration 2018.


Sashah is an initiated student of Michael Bertiaux, having studied directly with him in Chicago for over a decade.

At BLK Celebration 2018, he will bring to us –

“Lovecraftian Mythos in the the Voudon Gnostic Universe: An introductory look into Bertiaux’s Lovecraftian Coven”.

This presentation sheds light on the foundation and practice of a system that utilizes Transyuggothian Shamanism, Zothyrian Logic, and Necronomicon Physics, and it explores how these weave into the world of Esoteric Voudon.

Sashah Ruge is an artist and a student of magic and the occult for over 20 years. His primary focus is in the grimoire traditions, LHP philosophy/magical techniques, and both traditional and esoteric Voodoo.

Sashah has a strong focus on the utilization of H. P. Lovecraft’s Mythos in a mix of ceremonial magic and shamanism that has led him to become the directing force within the Lovecraftian Coven mentioned in Bertiaux’s writings.

Sashah was consecrated as a Gnostic Bishop by Michael Bertiaux, and is one of two of Michael’s “Hyde Park Lodge” to be initiated into the NU Kult of LAM.
