Truths & Myths, An Exhibition by Charles Newington, at Atlantis Bookshop, through November 18, 2022, London, UK.

“Only running until Friday 18th November, The Atlantis Bookshop, exhibition from 11am-6pm

We are excited to be hosting right now a pop-up exhibition of the sublime works of the world-renowned artist, Charles Newington.  Charles has established a very large body of work, including placing Britain’s most recent chalk hill figure on the cliffs at Folkestone.  More recently, he has been exploring the world of the esoteric, with the publication of The Goblin Market Tarot.  His inspired approach to creating his works of art, described by some as “startlingly divine”, can be seen in many of the images on display for the next couple of weeks with us.

Come along and prepare to be amazed!”

Victor Neuburg, Magical Writer. Poet Victor Neuberg is known for his Aleister Crowley ties, but he was also an acclaimed poet: Caroline Neuberg talks with Justin Hopper, Treadwell's Bookshop, Dec 8, 2022, London, UK and online.

“Poet Victor Neuberg is known for his Aleister Crowley ties, but he was also an acclaimed poet: Caroline Neuberg talks with Justin Hopper

Victor Neuberg (1883-1940) was a British pagan writer who was part of the wider occult milieu of the early twentieth century. Though he never achieved fame, he nonetheless has a quiet but avid cult following. Neuberg is famed for his liaison with Aleister Crowley c. 1906-1914 and their joint magical workings (Choronzon / Paris), but he had his own important career in literature: writing poetry, founding Vine Press, and mentoring younger writers. Dylan Thomas even said, 'Vicky encouraged me as no one else has done'. Tonight his granddaughter Caroline Neuberg comes to Treadwell's for a lively 'on the sofa' talk with Justin Hopper to talk about Neuberg: the occult life, the writing career, the acclaimed poetry, and the pagan sensibility — he was a devotee of the god Pan. Drinks party follows.

Caroline Neuberg is joined by Justin Hopper, the editor of Obsolete Spells,  a selection of Neuburg's work and from other Vine Press books—over-the-top hymns to the Old Gods, tales from a utopian landscape, and more, most of which have been out of print for a century.”

William Blake in Songs & Words, November 18, 2022, 7pm with Susheela Raman, Jason Whittaker, Sam Mills and Charles Hayward: “I give you the end of a golden string” at St James’s Church Piccadilly, London, UK.

“Programmed in collaboration with The Blake Society.

Acclaimed for her audacious cross-cultural musical creations, singer/composer Susheela Raman’s latest adventure encounters the magical imagination of one of London’s most creative sons, William Blake, who was born in Soho and baptised at St James’s Church Piccadilly.

Susheela’s original settings of Blake poems, such as the epic “Proverbs of Hell”, are threaded with spoken word performances of Blake’s writings by Jason Whittaker, author and Blake expert and accompanied by inventive guitarist and composer Sam Mills.

Blake summoned his visionary art and poetry from many sources and continues to fascinate and inspire countless writers, music makers and visual artists. The “Golden String” offered here unwinds in words and music though Blake, from the Renaissance magic of Shakespeare’s “Tempest” to William Burroughs and David Bowie.

Susheela Raman will be supported by eminent musician and composer Charles Hayward.

Doors 6:30pm. Event 7pm-9:15pm with short interval.”

Moina Mathers: Mistress of Magic with Geraldine Beskin at The College of Psychic Studies, November 1, 2022, 7pm (UK), online and recorded for those registered.

“Many will recognise Moina Mathers from her association with The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. In this livestream talk, Geraldine Beskin reveals that this unsung hero should be recognised for much more... including her art, which is on show in the College's Creative Spirits art exhibition!

Moina Mathers was unusual in many ways – not least having a successful marriage to a ceremonial magician, and they are rarely easy to live with! Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers was one of the three founders of The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and Moina was initiated into it, ran it, constructed the rituals and maintained a life as an artist too.

A thoroughly European childhood and a courageous nature made Moina Mathers' bohemian lifestyle one that her friends envied. Her two main companions were the remarkable Annie Horniman and Florence Farr who both also feature in this talk. One was rich and one was famous, and both had interesting friends and were mentioned in biographies.

Moina Mathers has been slightly overlooked for the last several years and Geraldine is set to redress the balance with this, the most recent of her biographical talks on Magical Women. Join us for this enlightening livestream talk on the life and magic of Moina Mathers, whose artwork can be seen in the College's Creative Spirits art exhibition.”
