If you’re interested in Magick it is worth listening to this podcast right the way through.

Each section builds on the others. In the first part Daniel lays out  a very broad definition of Magick, in the second section there is  a discussion of the uses of Magick and how  Daniel got into it as what he describes as an inevitable part of his meditation practice and in the third he goes into suggestions for  those who want to start out along the Magickal path

Listening to Daniel talk about Magick here has given me a very different sense of the thing. Of how all-inclusive it is and how it can be used as a way of emphasizing the practice of living intentionally and getting more positive results from life
