An Academic’s view of Hecate’s Primal Craft.
primalcraft
People within the occult community are sometimes reluctant to converse with those of the academic fraternity. Usually I consider myself no different. I am, however, often reminded that the Will of Hecate is far stronger than that of man. Therefore when approached by Dr. Connell Monette of the Al Akhawayan University, I agreed to Primal Craft’s representation of Paganism within what is essentially a study of Contemporary Mysticism. During the course of our many lengthy interviews, over a time span of almost two years, Dr. Monette was able to build an overview of both Hecate’s Primal Craft and my own role within this as Gatekeeper to the Mother Temple.

Within this volume Dr. Monette has drawn from a diverse array of knowledge, experience and wisdom to bring forth an overview of these five spiritual movements. There are some familiar names among the collaborators and devotees who illuminated their practice and faith – thereby assisting in the creation of this text. These include: Shri Kapilnath, Stephen Abdullah Trevathan, Anton Long, Jall, Mark Alan Smith, Robert Svoboda, Zhander Remete, Emma Balnaves, Michael Kelly, HH Bir Krishna das Goswami, and Andrea Olivera.

For my own part it has been an honour to be involved in this representation of Hecate’s Sacred Primal Arte – viewed through an academic lens.

The book is published in the USA. It is being made available to educational establishments and universities worldwide who may wish to invest in this rich text. This grants the students of higher education – who may look upon mysticism and the occult with interest - a greater overview of these spiritual movements, as well as a deeper understanding of the ever expanding Magickal Current of Hecate that fuels Her Primal Witchcraft.
The book is also be available to the greater masses, and may be purchased later this week directly from the publisher’s own website: http://siriusacademic.com/ Details may also be obtained from the publisher’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/SiriusAcademicPress
