The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn

This week we talk about The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.


The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn was formally establihed on March 1, 1888. It's had a tremendous influence on Western Occult thought over the past century. Indeed, it's easy to say that without the Golden Dawn, Wicca - and therefore the whole Pagan revival - might never have seen the light of day.


It's really too bad that today in Greece there is a neo-fascist group calling themselves Golden Dawn. So, I think for that reason alone, since we've just had an anniversary of the establishment of the original Golden Dawn, let's take this week to learn about it and celebrate it.


But of course you can't talk about the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn without first talking about Hermeticism, so that we could figure out just what IS so Hermetic about the Golden Dawn.


And we'll hear from Aliester Crowley - not only in his own words, but in his own voice!

Be well! Do good! Enjoy the show.

Some of the music you'll hear on this weeks show include This Ascention: "Mysterium"; Jennifer Hope: "The Sky is Blushing"; Magenta: "Eccentricity"; Ana Winter: "My Inner Voice"; Telling Point: "Take the Path" and more.


Maybe you've composed a new poem and would like to hear it on the radio. If you want to submit audio to The Spiral Dance, send me an email. There are basically no rules - just no harsh language, no commercial self-promotion and no Christian-bashing. Please let me know what you think about the show. I'm always open to suggestions; email spiraldance1@ or

Yes it is a sad state that pagan related names are misused for political things.

Long time ago I read about the women members of the Golden Dawn. Pamela Colman Smith who designed did drawings of the Rider-Waite Tarot was also member of GD.
