We’ve heard about the concept of the Muse, and countless artists have been quite clear about not exactly knowing where their art comes from- sometimes saying it finds them moreso than the other way around. So there’s definitely some interesting interplay between consciousness and ideas that I don’t think we’ve fully unpacked. Yet it’s something that the Occult world has been exploring and experimenting with behind the scenes for years- and while these activities are usually relegated to the shadows- few people really understand the scope of magical thinking, art, and it’s influence on the wider culture. Which brings us to today’s guest. His name is Carl Abrahamsson, a writer, publisher, magico-anthropologist, film maker and more.

His latest book is titled Occulture: The Unseen Forces That Drive Culture Forward – and in it, he explores that curious crossroads between art and magic, discusses his insights from over 30 years in occult movements, and takes a deep look into the phenomena and people who have been the most crucial in modern esoteric developments including Carl Jung, Anton LaVey, Crowley, Rudolf Steiner and more.

An insightful sage of the esoteric ways, Carl Abrahamsson.
