Mapping the Occult City includes M Dionysius Rogers, David B Metcalfe and Rik Garrett

I’ve previously mentioned the Mapping the Occult City pre-conference, but now that the speakers list has been finalized I thought I’d mention there’s involvement from a number of people you may be already familiar with from the library including Hermetic Library fellow M Dionysius Rogers, anthology artist David B Metcalfe, and frequent contributor to the visual pool Rik Garrett. So, not only is the conference itself sounding pretty interesting in and of itself, there’s a lot of great people involved as well. If you’re in Chicago or can get there, the pre-conference is Friday, Nov 16th, and does not require AAR membership to attend or participate.

Michael Bertiaux added to Mapping the Occult City

I’ve previously posted about Mapping the Occult City, a pre-conference for the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Religions, on Fri, Nov 16, 2012 in Chicago, and just heard that Michael Bertiaux has been added as a speaker.

“Michael Bertiaux is an American occultist and Old Catholic Bishop, known for his book Voudon Gnostic Workbook (1988), a 615-page compendium of various occult lessons and research papers spanning the sub-fields of Voodoo, Neo-Pythagoreanism, Thelema and Gnosticism. He will be sharing memories of his many years in the occult scene of Chicago.” [via]
