I realized I should post something here for those of you who, like me, are not on Facebook and so don’t know about this event. If you have been listening to and enjoying the weekly podcast Fortune’s Wheelhouse, where my co-host Susie Chang and I talk about esoteric tarot correspondences, this is something you may be very interested in!
(and if you are just learning about the Fortune’s Wheelhouse podcast, you can get it free on iTunes, Spotify, GooglePlay, Stitcher, Podbean, Player FM, and all of the pod places, or check out our Patreon site as every week we give away by random draw gifts to Patrons including decks, books, perfumes, prints, and all sorts of esoteric themed prizes made by us)
What you may not know is that there is a Facebook group called Fortune’s Wheelhouse Academy, where fans of the podcast and of esoteric tarot and all things occult gather to share all sorts of things. You won’t find me on there because I decided way back at the beginning of time that I should concentrate on art rather than social media and marketing. But Susie is on there, and lots of very well informed esotericists are there, and I admit to sometimes feeling left out of all the fun they get up to!
If you also are not a member of that group, you may not know that the fans who set up the Facebook group have also arranged for a meet up event, at a hotel venue in Massachusetts, for fans of the podcast. You won’t believe this – and I certainly am in awe at our good fortune – but we have a very special guest invited who has agreed to come. Drumroll please….LON MILO DUQUETTE!
Lon has been a governing officer of the OTO since 1975 and is the author of many great esoteric texts. You may know of or hopefully have many of Lon’s awesome body of works including the books Understanding Aleister Crowley’s Thoth Tarot, Chicken Qabalah, Low Magick, The Magick of Aleister Crowley, My Life With the Spirits, and many others! He is incredibly erudite AND has a wicked sense of humor. I have or have at one time had most of his books and enjoyed them all, so it is really exciting it is to have Lon joining us.
Lon is also a recording artist, and I really like his music! We are bringing a guitar to the meetup and he is going to play for us too! As well as give a talk on Qabalah! This is an intimate venue, so far a fairly small group, so it will be a very special event. Here is a link sampling some of his music on his 2015 album Sweet Baba Lon . Check out the tracks Sweet Babalon, Outside the Box, and Class Warfare for a sample of a few favorites.
So if you are a fan of Lon Milo, and of the podcast and the topics related to esoteric tarot, this is an an event to consider! It is happening the weekend of September 15th in central Massachusetts. I’m sorry I haven’t posted about it sooner and that it is short notice. It just occurred to me that those of you other FB outcasts like me might not even know about it! And the news of Lon joining us is fairly recent. I think at first I didn’t want to say anything in case it turned out too good to be true! But it looks like this is happening. If you are on FB, join the Fortune’s Wheelhouse Academy group to find out more. If you aren’t, and want to attend this event, let me know and I will put you in touch with one of the organizers.
