I would like to welcome and introduce everyone to our latest contributing writer Christopher Winters, better know as @this_occult_life Chris has been pursuing the elegant nuances of Hermeticism and Western Qabalah for a decade, with hopes to elucidate and make accessible, to all seekers with a mind for the work, the mysteries therein. Inspired by his family, who are psychically gifted and sharing those same abilities, he sought meaning in his own extraordinary experiences through various healing arts and formats of magick. Chris has found a home in the world of Western Qabalah, and it is his hope that his efforts will allow others to experience the same satisfaction of the Great Work. Chris will be sharing his extensive knowledge, experiences and systems of various magical practices via our blog which can be found on www.fireandlux.com. The blog will be launched to members only where you will have access to all of his and other contributing writers articles, which will cover high magick, low magic, meditations, astrology, tarot, rituals, wellness, crystal healing, yoga and much more.
