Julian Vayne is an occultist and the author of a number of books, essays, journals and articles in both the academic and esoteric press. He is a freelance consultant, often working in museum and heritage settings, and lives in Devon. His name is most closely associated with the approach to occultism known as chaos magick. Julian is also an initiated Wiccan, member of the Kaula Nath lineage and Master Mason,
Steve Dee is a chaos magician, Amookos initiate and gnostic explorer who lives in Devon. He likes cats, drums, body surfing and very loud music.
Nikki Wyrd has practised doing Chaos Magick for 24 years so far. She could stop any time she wanted, but finds life a bit more exciting with it. Now living mostly in Norwich, she is currently occupied in creating books, and helping various pieces of writing by others attain maximum clarity (aka proofreading). She has worn many other hats, now and then, including punk bass guitarist, priestess, and parent.

This is a good idea and I love your article ‘Glitter and Kittens’
Right on Bro’!
Zen Odinist – and I thought I was the only one!
Hi Dirk, you’re not the only one!-check out www.http://odinthewanderer.org
I get a virus warning when I try and go there
…and now it’s OK – weird!
try this http://www.odinthewanderer.org/ think the url was wrong in the previous post 🙂
Ah, its still under construction so has a few glitches-I will let you know when its working again-but it features some great writing about the interface between Zen, Odinism and consciousness!
Just got into it using:
I believe in wiccan witchcraft and magick i want to join
Hi Joseph, assuming you’ve read some of the classic texts I’d suggest getting in touch with a network group such as the Pagan Federation (if you’re in Britain). Start a solitary practice first – meditation, circle casting, some seasonal observances. I wish you well in finding a good group to work with. JV
Great Blot. But what else would one expect from such knowledgeable and experienced magicians.
I just stumbled upon your blog for the first time today and have been reading the old posts, it’s rather good. Can I just ask a question, Steve, do I recognise that name from the Z-Cluster?
Indeed you do Zoltan! I got involved quite late in the day but admired much of what went on.
This book and blog resonate greatly with me. I’m excited to continue exploring the depths of my mind and connecting with the universal life force, or Baphomet. I have felt a disconnect from the earth and from the natural world for so long. I need a reconnect. I have formed a coven with two of my friends and we are just now beginning to explore the inner workings of our minds and connecting with the earth, celebrating its cycles and gifts.
To Julian Vayne; I just wanted you to know that I love all your books and articles and have found them to not only be informative but also very entertaining to read as well.
Really great work by all three of you here on this blog. I’ve been following your blog for a few months now and have found all of your blogs to be thought provoking, informative and knowledgable. Thank you all for sharing your magickal knowledge with us all.😀
Hello there, I’ve been following this blog for a while and particularly admire your interweaving of magic with the personal and political. I’m editing the next edition of a pagan anti-capitalist journal called A Beautiful Resistance #2 and was wondering if any of you would consider contributing.
The journal is run as closely as possible to a worker’s collective so there will be a small amount of pay depending on sales. More details can be found here: http://godsandradicals.org/journal-guidelines/ Best wishes, Lorna
Hi Lorna, thanks for your kind words about our blog 🙂 I’ll have a look at the journal submission details and see if we can help. Best wishes, Julian
