Lectures and Workshops for your event

Do you need a witty and charismatic speaker for your conference or speaking engagement? Sef Salem and James North are magicians for hire, and regularly travel across the length and breadth of the UK to give lectures and workshops for other groups and events.

Here are some of the topics you can book using our enquiries form:

  • The Path of the Rose - Two-day intensive pathworking course, transporting you to the Domain of the Archangels as described in the Grimoire of Armadel, for a transformative spiritual progression towards the Divine Centre. No prior knowledge of angelic magick required, astral working helpful.

Why book speakers from The Visible College?

Sef has been working magick across ceremonial and sorcerous disciplines for a decade and a half, and gives regular lectures and workshops for groups including the Pagan Federation and Ordo Templi Orientis. Sef has run multiple successful magical groups, and a short occult CV is available upon request.

Sef's main interests are metaphysics as it applies to the cycle of incarnation, the purposes and goals of incarnation, and how to achieve those goals. In other words, how you got here, why you came, and what to do next. This is dangerously close to life-coaching, but it's a risk Sef's willing to take. These are tempered by Sef's background as a Gnostic, and his long-standing work with Angelic spirits. Sef utilises these skills to bring occultists together for TVC's conferences and immersive workshops, as our Events Manager.

James, a classically trained scholar, is an initiate of Hermetic and Alchemical groups and brings a thorough understanding of the history of the Western Mystery Tradition, the route the magical arts have taken in occulture, and where these teachings can be applied to better the world. His work in the Dion Fortune mystery tradition in particular gives a strong focus on the social responsibilities of the magician, and the qabalistic concept of Tikkun Olam is central to his practice.

James is well known at Treadwell's bookshop in London for his insightful and thought-provoking lectures, and since moving to Glastonbury he has delivered long-format courses on Alchemy, Neo-Platonic Hermetics, and Foundational Qabalah. His foundational course on Initiatory Magic is now available online through The Visible College, and he is Director of Studies for our distance learning programmes.
