The system of
Enochian magick, discovered and developed by John Dee and Edward Kelley in
the 1500s, has fascinated ritual magicians for
centuries. Enochian magick played a prominent role in the
Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and its successors, and Aleister
Crowley attained many of his greatest mystical insights and
initiatory successes using the system.
In Winds of Wisdom Dr. David Shoemaker, a noted magician, psychologist, teacher, and Thelemite,
presents his visionary experiences with the Aethyrs, as well as providing a practical approach to obtaining your own visions by using a modern application of the traditional approach known as “scrying”.
Shoemaker is a clinical psychologist in private practice, specializing in
Jungian and cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy. David is the Chancellor of
the International College of Thelema, and the Prolocutor of its initiatory
Order, the Temple of the Silver Star. He has been a member of O.T.O. and A∴A∴
since 1993, and he has many years of experience training students in these
He is the Master of 418 Lodge, O.T.O. in Sacramento, California, having
succeeded Soror Meral (Phyllis Seckler), his friend and teacher. He
also serves as the Most Wise Sovereign of Alpha Chapter, and as a
Sovereign Grand Inspector General of O.T.O. David was the founding President
of the O.T.O. Psychology Guild, and is a frequent speaker at national and
regional O.T.O. events.
David’s popular “Living Thelema” podcasts have appeared regularly since early
2010, and his widely praised Living Thelema book was published in late
2013. David's latest book, The Winds of Wisdom, contains a full record of his
scrying of the Thirty Enochian Aethyrs, and was published by Nephilim
Press in the fall of 2016.
“Dr. Shoemaker is not only a mature and
competent practitioner of Enochian magical techniques, but is also possessed
with the eloquence and insight to share with what is 'shareable' of his
intensely personal journey. My highest recommendation.”

and Practical Guide to the Magick of Dr. John Dee and Edward Kelley”
