Occult Conference in Glastonbury, UK on Mar 22nd, 2014

Occult Conference 2014 will be held in Glastonbury, UK on March 22nd, 2014, with tickets available online through March 16th. This event will have vendors, workshops, lectures, a Gnostic Mass ritual, keynote, an evening ball, and more.

“The new and re-imagined Occult Conference will be investigating five Initiatory Traditions within British Occultism:
· Alexandrian Wicca
· Dion Fortune Western Mystery Schools
· Illuminates of Thanateros
· Order of Bards, Ovates & Druids
· Ordo Templi Orientis

We have brought together fantastic representatives of these Traditions, and will be offering lectures and workshops to allow attendees a glimpse behind the curtains, and to gain hands-on experience of the praxis within.

After a packed day, we will be converting the venue into a Temple for a very special celebration of Liber XV: The Gnostic Mass by Ordained Officers of Ecclesia Gnostica Catholica, under the auspices of O.T.O. All will be welcome to celebrate the Divine in Humanity, and the Generative and Creative forces of Nature.

The Jupiterian Ball will round off the evening with aplomb: Dance and enjoy cocktails to music from Swing to Rockabilly, decked out in your finest evening-wear or vintage dress. Separate tickets for partners or friends will be available for this section.

We will also be hosting Peter J. Carroll and Matt Kabryn as they launch EPOCH: The Esotericon and Portals of Chaos! Make sure to attend for an exclusive chance to buy signed first editions, and discuss this work with the authors themselves.”

Vintage Black Wand

Vintage Black Wand — George Alexander “made by the personal tool craftsman to Alex and Maxine Sanders” may be of interest.

George Alexander vintage black wand at Treadwell's Books

“Turned wooden wand, painted black with wound leather handle. Smells wonderfully of incense.

Comes wrapped in tissue in a black carry case. Wand is approx 27cm long.

This wand was made by George Alexander (d. 2009), swordsmith and tool maker to Alex and Maxine Sanders in the 1960s. The tools and crafted items he made for them can be seen in many of the press photographs taken at photoshoots of the Sanders’ Alexandrian ceremonies.

Treadwells was priviledged to meet his widow, Francesca Rossetti, from whom we received this wand and several other items he made. George Alexander and his work are recognised as being of historical significance, and some of his crafted pieces have been acquired by the Museum of Witchcraft.”
