Oh my, how interesting that I should discover the Order after having a long discussion with a friend of mine regarding the matter of the occult.  You see, he's actually getting his degree in occult studies (through the military no less).  I don't know what he plans to do with such a degree, but he's currently trying to convince me to join him in starting a local organization somewhat akin to the "Ghost Hunters."  I think it would be incredibly fun, and I'm definitely interested; I'm just not sold on the idea yet.

Have any of you undertaken similar endeavors?

I wish to petition to join the B.G.O.S.- E.O.B.D. - which I am sure is an anagram for something esoteric; Dogbobes? Gedboobs? Nah, doesn't sound right. I'll figure it out, never you fear.

I'm a wizard/alchemist/druid with a B.Sc. in Geology, M.Sc. in Oceanography (marine geochemistry), and "almost" a degree in mechanical engineering; a semi-professional Celtic musician (which means I sometimes get paid for playing but not often enough to make a living at it), a designer and maker of "neo-Celtic" jewellery and musical instruments, an initiated Witch, former O.T.O. member (I could never get my head around Crowley Worship), banisher of sundry ghosts, interested in sacred geometry, sacred architecture, Rosicrucianism (NOT A.M.O.R.C.), UFO's, cryptography and cryptozoology, thoroughgoing sceptic and total heretic. Among other things. And Steampunk, pretty much since birth, of course.

Hi, guys and ladies.

I have a Masters in Gothic Studies, specializing in Victorian Mesmerism, and I am looking for a good PhD program o further my studies. I would like to do one of three things...

1. Victorians and death (with a PhD paper entitled "Sleep Like the Dead", which is kind of where my Masters idissertation stared heading in its conclusion).
2. Theosophy, looking at the wider scope of Aetherology, what happens when we die spiritually, the meaning of life etc.
3. Occult, focussing more on actual Victorian practises of magic/occult science.

Out of the three, I like 1 and 3 the best, but so far have only found universities offering 2 (Exeter and one in mid Wales).

Anyone know of any other institutions promoting the dark arts occult studies?

Got it. B.G.O.S - E.O.B.D is an anagram of GOOD EBBS which pretty much describes the current state of the planet. However one must remember that ebb tide is invariably followed by flood tide, so after ebbing as far as it can, GOOD will flood back into the world, we only have to be patient.

Here's a point for the students of synchronicity to ponder. In Robert Anton Wilson's epic three-volume novel "Schroedinger's Cat", published in the 1970's, one of the important characters is a vast, mysterious computer known as GWB-666 which effectively monitors everything that happens on the planet. The question is, did R.A.W. KNOW that a future president of the United States would have the initials GWB, would wish he could monitor everything that went on, and who would be desperately afraid of the number 666 - or was it all just a coincidence?

Well, I'm not sure what you fine fellows might think of me.

I have been, in my past, a practicing Witch, a Ghost Hunter, and all sorts of oddities.

Then I was... well... there's only one way to describe it, as much as I used to make fun of this term.

I was Born Again.

Now, this does not mean I turn my nose up at those who still follow those paths.  On the contrary, I have the greatest respect for those explorers of mysterious pathways.

It's just not my path anymore.

However, I do still have a great interest in Ghost Hunting and other paranormal occurances.  My Faith puts no strictures on things the human mind can accomplish.

Does the Count walk among us today?
And if so who or what is the Count?

Voltin, if the Count were with us today, I sorely wish He'd show His face as we need Him and his whole bag of tricks.

My instinct is to say that He's in the shadows watching and biding His time waiting for a prime opportunity because certainly this is the silliest human kind has acted in centuries.

Now your research question:

*rises from my chair, strolling past the immense personal library stacks, gently fingering the battered leather spines of many an overused tomb*

Ahh, here it is!

I recommend starting with: The Count De Saint Germain - Last Scion of the House of Rakoczy by Jean Overton Fuller, East-West Publications, London and The Hague, ISBN: 0856921149 copyright 1988

It may be a difficult book to get but it's much more reliable than the babbalings of Marie Claire Prophet (avoid those at all costs).

Cheers!

As a student of the yogic traditions of Oddiyana and the Tybet, perhaps I can bring a slightly different perspective to the mostly theosophic/magickal bent of the B.G.O.S.-E.O.B.D.

I am magically secular.

The topic of Spiritualism was first broached here
at the E.'.O.'.B.'.D.'. way-y-y back in December
of 2008, in post #17 (it's on our First Page).

The Golden Dawn's version of a 'Talking Board',
so-called "the Ring and the Disc", is available
here, along with the procedures for its use.

Historically, it was their active engagement with the
Otherworld that lead to a certain antipathy between
the various Magical or Hermetic Orders and the
Theosophists during the Victorian Era.

Hello ds, it depends what you mean by occult studies. Institutions tend to do all the theory and none of the practical, and years and a day initiation tends to ride on the skill of the tutor. Even then you have a narrow view of the occult. I would advise read, learn, practice. That way you come to your own truths regarding the art and ways of working. Start going to local groups (DON'T listen to self serving gurus) try and drop, try and keep. Occult arts need to be searched for, they don't just serve themselves up on a plate. There is trial and pain in their understanding, but the rewards are edifying.

Word of warning: It is easy to fall in with one group and within that group blurr the line between politics and the study of the occult. Do not put all your eggs in one basket. I hope this helps.

Re-reading your post I think if you like number 1 then look to Victoria for your inspiration. She started the death cult after all. Monarchy, popular culture, the manipulation of the masses. It's all good stuff.

The original query was about Universities in the UK offering
advanced studies of an esoteric nature and, in that regard,
U. Exeter would be the logical choice.

Exeter Centre for the Study of Esotericism
Director: Professor Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke

~ from their site:

"The Western esoteric traditions reach back to
Hermeticism, Neo-Platonism, Gnosticism, and
theurgy in the Hellenistic world during the first
centuries AD...

The modem revival of esotericism extends from
Romantic Naturphilosophie to nineteenth-century
occultism involving Swedenborgianism, Mesmerism,
Spiritualism, the ancient wisdom-tradition, and
ceremonial magic and para-masonic orders."

Having come to this esteemed Order by way of my Steampunk Spirituality thread, it's good to find such good advice being proposed.

On that basis, I would like to forward myself as a member.

It'd be good to be somewhere where I won't get funny looks when a random comment sends me off on a discussion of obscure spiritual practices!

Will there be a Brazen Dawn meet-up at Lincoln?

I thank you for your welcome. Can I roll my trouser leg down now?

Do we have a Symbol? I'm looking to design some Calling Cards for Lincoln; it would be good to add a few Mystic Signs to it. Any suggestions?

There seems to be some interest in a philosophical conclave (via the Steampunk Spirituality thread http://brassgoggles.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,26048.0.html) at the Asylum - is anyone in the Order interested?

Yours in Fraternity
