Lon Milo DuQuette

In the dark and brooding firmament of occult literature and media, Lon Milo DuQuette is a star of unique and exceptional brilliance. Although he takes the subjects of Magick, Qabalah and the Western spiritual traditions very seriously, he tries to remember not to take himself too seriously. This rare combination of common sense and self-effacing humor has in the last 15 years secured him a unique and highly respected position in the world of esoteric literature. Hailed by critics as the most entertaining author in the field, (His style has been compared to that of Mark Twain and Robert Benchley.) his books, seminars and radio and television appearances evoke from his audiences a curious mixture of laughter, terror, and wonderment.

His magical credentials are impeccable. Since 1975 he has served as a national and international administrative officer of Ordo Templi Orientis, one of the most influential and controversial magical societies of the 20th century. He is an acknowledged authority on the life and magical work of Aleister Crowley, the O.T.O.’s most celebrated and notorious leader, and since 1994 has served as the Order’s United State Deputy Grand Master.

DuQuette has authored numerous magical texts including The Magick of Aleister Crowley, Understanding Aleister Crowley's Thoth Tarot, and Angels, Demons, and Gods of the New Millennium, but without question his most popular work is the story of his own life as a practicing ceremonial magician, My Life with the Spirits. Futurist and best-selling author Robert Anton Wilson calls it “…the best all-around introduction to Western Occultism -- sane, sensible, down-to-earth and wonderfully witty.” My Life with the Spirits has been optioned for a feature film and is a required text for classes at DePaul University, Chicago. He is often called upon to appear on radio and television to comment authoritatively on matters pertaining to the Western Mystery traditions and matters of the occult.

He travels extensively world-wide and speaks on a broad range of esoteric topics including Qabalah and the Tarot. He is on the faculty of the OMEGA INSTITUTE in Rhinebeck, New York where he teaches ‘The Western Magical Tradition.’

He was a recording artist (Epic Records) in the early 70s and at the same time studied acting under Lee Strasberg at the Strasberg Theatrical Institute in Hollywood.

He is married (37 years) to Constance DuQuette (his high-school sweetheart), an accomplishment he considers his greatest magical achievement. They have one son, Jean-Paul who is now 32 and thinks his parents are “cool, but a bit weird.”

 

 

The Magick of Aleister Crowley

Join Lon as he explores the life, the work, and the magick of the man who called himself “The Beast 666.” It might forever change your view of Magick.

 

 

 

 

 

Introduction to Enochian Magick

Enochian Magick is the perhaps the most powerful and elegant system of western magick. It is also one of the most misunderstood. Developed in the late 1500s by Elizabethan Magus John Dee, this system of communicating with angels in their own language has survived the centuries to become a powerful tool of self-discovery to the 21st century seeker. Learn its history and participate in an Enochian visionary experience.
