Welcome to the Circle of Theory. What you can find in this circle is the spiritual harvest of my magical explorations over the last decade. I hope these articles can be of value in themselves - shedding some light on topics on which little reliable material is available in the public at the moment. At the same time I hope they can help to show how many new perspectives and insights we can gain through our own magical practice: Truth is none of the material below could have come to life through mental speculation alone. All of them are an expression of the dependency and interconnectedness of theory and practice - just like the two snakes on the caduceus. At the end of the day it is not for us to tell which insights we gained through our own genuine reflections, through people we worked with, books that influenced us or spirits that shared some of their knowledge with us. It is for us to share what we found - and make the best from it.
