About The Event

Grimoire magic is the use of old guides to summon spirits using cast circles, prayerful invocations, powerful evocations and consecrated tools. Our guest tonight, Doug Batchelor, converses with Christina Oakley Harrington on his adventures in how he came to be an active practitioner of this tradition. How he came to it and -- importantly -- how he took the step from just reading grimoires actually doing  the practices described. The Greek Magical Papyri play a key role, and were his 'gateway drug'. This event is live in person at Treadwell's, and you the audience ask prompting questions too. A soiree on the shopfloor follows.

Doug Batchelor is the producer and voice of the popular podcast 'What Magic is This?'. Based in the United States, he is visiting London for a few days. His reading interests span the spectrum of esoteric traditions, from the Greek Magical Papyri to the Golden Dawn. As followers of his podcast know well, he is always attentive to the ways in which people make the transition from reading about these arts, to lighting the incense and doing them. Tonight he tells his own story of that journey.
