For many, results driven or psychologically based magick is the end-all, be-all.
That's why I was pleasantly surprised when talking to both our guests at CMC Presents this month. Their approaches to magick are both highly spiritual and artistic.
First up, we have Duncan Barford of Occult Experiments in the Home.
Wise beyond his years, Duncan always looks at the questions posed and sees them from another perspective. Far from your average "hot takes," he really sees into the heart of each issue and addresses it in a unique and insightful way.
With a clever mind and patient ways, Duncan is an absolute joy to speak with about the occult and magick, and I'm sure you'll agree once you listen.
Check out his website Occult Experiments in the Home, oeith.co.uk, and his OEITH podcast. You can also like, subscribe, and follow his work on his YouTube channel.
Our second guest is the one and only Ramsey Dukes, AKA Lionel Snell.
A wonderful person to chat with who has amazing insight into the origins of Chaos Magick and the world of the occult. There's never a dull moment with this one, folks!
With many titles and earth-shattering ideas that titillate the mind and enrich the soul, he really gets to the heart of the roots of Chaos Magick.
After studying at Cambridge, he fell into the crowd of newborn chaos magicians and was once lauded as putting "the magick back in magick."
It's impossible to listen and not be taken back to an era of coffee shops and occult books in the rural countryside of England.

His upcoming coffee-table book Hellgate Chronicles should be available on his website.
