Michael B. R. Nowicki (1931-2021)
We extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Michael Nowicki (B. 27th February 1931 D. 24th June 2021 aged 91 years) who was a founding member of the SOL school.
Michael died on the evening of Midsummer’s Day which is also the feast day of St. John the Baptist.
SOL Members who knew Michael may wish to light passing candles in his memory extending peace to his soul as he journeys into the Light.
There will be no public memorial service, in accordance with Michael’s wishes.
Michael retired from the SOL several years ago, and we are grateful for all the good service he gave to the school over many years.

Steven Critchley will be speaking, on the following topic, at The Dion Fortune Legacy Seminar on September 11th 2021:
Trance Communication and The Etheric Eidolon in W.E. Butler’s Practical Course on the Mystical Qabalah
W.E. Butler was a student of Dion Fortune, a member of the Fraternity of the Inner Light and latterly in his life, the first Director of Studies of the Servants of the Light school. A core element of W.E. Butler’s Practical Course on the Mystical Qabalah involves psychological and spiritual work in an interior castle that is built in the imagination and rhythmically projected and re-absorbed by students in their practice. It is a locus of Qabalistic alchemy, refuge, prayer, magical work and of communication with inner plane contacts. Butler called the castle an etheric eidolon and “The Castle Golem.” In this talk Steven will discuss how elements of Dion Fortunes’ teachings about practical magic, trance consciousness and working within the etheric aura as a “magic mirror” influenced the teachings of W.E. Butler and that still influence the work of the SOL school.”

We wish all of our students, supervisors and lodges a peaceful Yuletide season!
Thank you all for your work in the school in what has been a very challenging year.
I just finished working in the temple here a short solstice ritual that included Mistletoe. I love calling it “All-Heal” on this day of the solstice.
The world is in need of so much peace and healing right now. We can all let the light in our heart’s shine to help bring wisdom, power and love with healing to all in the name of the One.
It is very cloudy and drizzly up here in the hills of the English Peak District, today, so there is not much chance of looking at the great conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter.
However, yesterday we had a clear evening so I took a picture from the front-door looking south and you can just see the planets singing as a little point of light beyond our Yule lights in the front garden.
We wish everyone that celebrates at this time of year a happy Christmas, happy holidays and we wish you all a peaceful New Year in 2021.
Blessing of the Light!
