The system of Enochian magick, discovered and developed by John Dee and Edward Kelley in the 1500s, has fascinated ritual magicians for centuries. Enochian magick played a prominent role in the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and its successors, and Aleister Crowley attained many of his greatest mystical insights and initiatory successes using the system.
In Winds of Wisdom Dr. David Shoemaker, a noted magician, psychologist, teacher, and Thelemite, presents his visionary experiences with the Aethyrs, as well as providing a practical approach to obtaining your own visions by using a modern application of the traditional approach known as “scrying”.
Dr. David Shoemaker is a clinical psychologist in private practice, specializing in Jungian and cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy. David is the Chancellor of the International College of Thelema, and the Prolocutor of its initiatory Order, the Temple of the Silver Star. He has been a member of O.T.O. and A∴A∴ since 1993, and he has many years of experience training students in these traditions.
He is the Master of 418 Lodge, O.T.O. in Sacramento, California, having succeeded Soror Meral (Phyllis Seckler), his friend and teacher. He also serves as the Most Wise Sovereign of Alpha Chapter, and as a Sovereign Grand Inspector General of O.T.O. David was the founding President of the O.T.O. Psychology Guild, and is a frequent speaker at national and regional O.T.O. events.
David’s popular “Living Thelema” podcasts have appeared regularly since early 2010, and his widely praised Living Thelema book was published in late 2013. David's latest book, The Winds of Wisdom, contains a full record of his scrying of the Thirty Enochian Aethyrs, and was published by Nephilim Press in the fall of 2016.
“Dr. Shoemaker is not only a mature and competent practitioner of Enochian magical techniques, but is also possessed with the eloquence and insight to share with what is 'shareable' of his intensely personal journey. My highest recommendation.”
Lon Milo DuQuette, author of Enochian Vision Magick - An Introduction and Practical Guide to the Magick of Dr. John Dee and Edward Kelley”
