The Middle Pillar Exercise


Temple of Babalon Podcast 04: Previously we explored the Lesser Ritual of the Pentagram in detail. Continuing with the Foundation work of a Probationer, we will now discuss a cornerstone of modern Hermetic Tantra-Yoga, known as the Middle Pillar Exercise. Later in the broadcast, Heather Carmen will take us through a step-by-step guide to the Middle Pillar Exercise, as it is taught and practiced in the Independent Thelemic Order of Ordo Astri. So, assuming you have fortified your astrosome or body of light with the Lesser Ritual of the Pentagram – or even if you have not yet got round to doing that – then make yourself comfortable and prepare for illumination!

Ritual Magick Foundation

Temple of Babalon Podcast 03: On the Libra Equinox of 2014 we published a new edition of Ritual Magick—The Rites and Ceremonies of Hermetic Light. The book takes theory into practice, revealing a unique system of magical Initiation. Included is an entire volume of Enochian Magick, with a detailed guide to Initiation and the system of Thirty Aethyrs, as well as an exposition on Enochian Sexual Magick. The book now includes advanced operations, such as Goetic Evocation and a full ceremonial Thelemic Mass. In this series of Temple of Babalon podcasts we will provide an overview, and no doubt some previously unpublished anecdotes, concerning each of the grades of Initiation. We begin here with the Foundation, the work of a Probationer to the Order. Heather Carmen will take us through a step-by-step guide to the Lesser Ritual of the Pentagram.
