Sasha Chaitow crowdfunding OCCULT 2014

Hi everyone, my name’s Sasha Chaitow, and I’m an artist, writer, and scholar of the crossover of esoteric thought and cultural history. I’ve been painting since 1996, and I hold two MAs in Literature and in Western Esotericism. I have just completed my PhD in Myth and Literature, examining the life and work of the mysterious Joséphin Péladan, a French visionary author who wrote over a hundred books devoted to his cause of inspiring a cultural renaissance through esoterically inspired art.

“Science arose from poetry—when times change the two can meet again on a higher level as friends.”
—Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

A weekend long Esoteric Salon honoring, exploring and celebrating the intertwining vines which feed both Magick and Creative Art.

Mission and Vision: To recognize that, especially together, both Magick and Art are greater than the sum of their parts, and each in dwells the other; they are rooted together. To raise consciousness, challenging false perceptions of separation between these so-imagined opposed sorceries. Through art as entertainment has its place and time, this Esoteric Salon moves us well past materialist commercialism. We recognize the power of Art to create spiritual movement and full expression to the divine Will—dancing, singing, painting, acting, sculpting,filming, poeting the ineffable. We confront the notion that the meaning and content of Art is not as important as its form and materials. With OCCULT, we seek to challenge old beliefs through the juxtaposition of beauty and magick, of art and ritual, blending the ingredients to make an event of highest harmony, a conjunctio of non-opposites.

“All Art is Magick…There is no more potent means than Art of calling forth true Gods to visible appearance.”—Aleister Crowley, Liber ABA, Part 3, Chapter X.

We answer the call of each of the planetary archetypes, and they inform us as to the achievement of best balance. Each offers a gift:

Luna: The co-creation of community, care for our sisters and brothers. A safe and challenging space to open and express.

Sol: Full expression of the Will! The Hero/Heroine’s Journey.

Mercury: Authentic communication and free expression. The co-creation and strengthening of network. The androgyne as symbol of inner wholeness.

Venus: Aesthetic beauty for its own pleasure. Sexuality as holy sacrament. Movement beyond mere adoration of the Feminine, to include Her co-sovereignty as well.

Mars: Fire. Passion. Blood pumping through the veins. Warriorship. The challenging of the Old Aeon, and the dare to fully embrace the New.

Jupiter: Philosophy, higher learning, expansion of thought and ideas.

Saturn: The honoring of the world of form, through artistic structure, Time and Space, and the expression of the invisible realm into the material one. The letting go of that which no longer serves.

Uranus: Innovation growth and change. Experimentation. Electrifying our minds, bodies, hearts. Dynamic movement.

Neptune: We honor The Dream. The ineffable, mystical force of Love and Soul that moves through the Artist and Mage alike. Spirit. Glamour. The Present Moment.

Pluto: We continue to Rebirth ourselves into this New Aeon. We shamanically honor the Shadow, and receive what the dark has to teach. We see the Luminosity in that Darkness.

“Magic in its earliest form is often referred to as ‘the art’. I believe this is completely literal. I believe that magic is art and that art, whether it be writing, music, sculpture, or any other form is literally magic. Art is, like magic, the science of manipulating symbols, words, or images, to achieve changes in consciousness.”—Alan Moore
