Welcome to Magic of the Ordinary. The aim of this site is to encourage comments and interaction of a range of topics and traditions. My own background is mostly magical (albeit from a different angle to most magical folk) – largely Golden Dawn based but with influences from Dion Fortune, Gareth Knight, Neil Douglas Klotz and others. The title here is borrowed from Gershon Winkler’s book on ‘Jewish Shamanism’.
The subtitle or description is an unabashed cobbling of the subtitles of Starhawk’s two excellent works, ‘Dreaming the Dark’ and ‘Truth or Dare’. I have always been moved by the classic ‘the political is personal is spiritual’ and I have always maintained the goal of magic is service to others, which necessitates an intersection with the social, the sexual and the political.
I hope you will feel free to leave comments as you read on.
May All Beings Be Well; May All Beings Be Happy,
May there be Peace, and Peace and Peace Profound.
