83: Divergent Magick & Anarchic Mysticism (feat. Keats Ross of 'PragMagick' & 'We the Hallowed')

This week on Black Hoodie Alchemy, our outlaw wizard friend Keats Ross returns from his last appearance on the show to talk about his latest work: Divergent Magick - An Anarchic Grimoire, which is far less destructive than it sounds.

Or, perhaps a better way to put it is: it is destruction with strong alchemical purpose. But beyond that, the true nature of the anarchy and divergence here lies in the difference between orthodoxy and heterodoxy; the tried-and-true versus the path less traveled.

With study, practice, and structure, so much of Keats' work is centered around flipping his study on its head and finding new meaning in the abstract, the mundane, and the intuitive rather than specific rules from books.

However, with discussion of anarchy and metaphysics we as well get into the more socio-cultural implications, dealing with wealth and poverty, struggle and resilience, and how the hunger that poverty can give us is truly something even the most pampered people are envious of.

We hope you dig it!
