Online Resources

The following reading and listening from other online spaces may be of interest:

Gareth Knight News and Ideas, the personal blog of Gareth Knight, author of the original Main Course textbook, one of the co-founders of the Helios Course which eventually became the Servants of the Light, and deeply respected elder of the Western Mystery Tradition.

Magic of the Ordinary was about magic and the spiritual life, by Peregrine Wildoak, who has clearly devoted much thought and practice to the relationship between magic and spirituality. The archives of this blog are packed with gems of insight. As of June 2018 unfortunately it seems to be offline.

Know Thyself, a blog written by T. Thorn Coyle, another practitioner who has given deep thought and practice to the relationship amongst magic, spirituality, and daily life.

T. Thorn Coyle’s Elemental Castings podcast is no longer updated as frequently but remains a treasure trove of interviews with experienced magical practitioners, including SOL Director of Studies Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki.

The Internet Sacred Texts Archive is a trove of public-domain sacred texts available for perusal or download.

The British Martinist Order

Lorian Association

New SEED Sanctuary

The Assembly of the Sacred Wheel

The Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids (OBOD)

The Druidical Order of the Golden Dawn whose FAQ and FTT pages are worth 15min of anyone’s time.

The Ancient Order of Druids in America (AODA)

Builders of the Adytum (BOTA)



The following (mostly small) publishers work hard to broaden the availability of esoteric literature.

Twin Eagles Publishing

Skylight Press
