BLK Celebration 2018 – Zalmat Bernstein presents “The Black Pilgrimage of the Lovecraftian Coven”

Zalmat Bernstein will join us at BLK Celebration 2018 to present

“The Black Pilgrimage of the Lovecraftian Coven”

“The subject of my talk is the Black Pilgrimage to Chorazin as it appears in fiction, apocrypha, Typhonian exegesis, and in the sorceries of the Lovecraftian Coven.
With our reawakening of Michael Bertiaux’s Lovecraftian Coven, we embarked on a nine month ritual to establish it’s current with that which lies Beyond.
To accomplish this we sought to embody within a vessel an egregore of the Black Man of the Sabbath, a mask of Nyarlathotep. Conceived as a moonchild, who would gestate through a nine month working. I will recount the pilgrimage of the Lovecraftian Coven and what slouches toward Chorazin to be born”.

As a member of the Ordo Templi Orientis Antiqua (O.T.O.A.), and the La Couleuvre Noire (L.C.N.), Zalmat Bernstein has been active with the work of Michael Bertiaux and Kenneth Grant’s Typhonian tradition for three decades. As an early evangelist of the Voudon Gnostic Workbook, he published articles as author of the Liber Atom website. In recent years he has been instrumental in starting a Monastery of the Seven Rays study group that broadcasts from a Theosophical occult library. Immersing himself in the source material from which these traditions drew inspiration enabled him to lead study groups on Theosophy, Madame Blavatsky’s Secret Doctrine, and the Western Esoteric Traditions for over a decade. This led to an additional calling, seeing him regularly performing the Eucharist, Zalmat is an ordained Catholic priest and the progenitor of the Society for the Reparation of the Astral Light (SRAL), a Gnostic Catholic Spiritualist society modeled after the work of Abbe Boullan. and he is helping to re-establish the current of Michael Bertiaux’s Lovecraftian Coven.

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.

Sash

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.
