The Thai Occult: a new book, an interview, a new track and a journey into the unknown.


A New Book; The new volume in The Thai Occult books series by Peter Jenx is released on Monday 3rd September on the superlative French press Timeless. I highly recommend engaging and investing in this stunning book. If anything is to go by from the last two volumes this one will be equally as magnificent and probably top them all. It’s as beautiful and stunningly designed on the inside as it is on the outside, packed with high quality photographs and information (you might recognize a familiar face or two). Worth acquiring for Ajarn Daeng’s gorgeous back cover alone. This exquisite Sak Yant design which can be seen below has been specially created for this book and is a variation on a Phra Ngang Yant but the script has been changed to bless all who have contact with it. This is pure 100% unadulterated magick in book form.

An Interview; Author, artist and animist Charlotte Rodgers talks to author Peter Jenx of The Thai Occult about his new book on Timeless. There’s also a cameo quote from yours truly. You can read it in full here.


A New Track; “Dreams…ghosts…” I’ve produced an experimental track which contains audio fragments and remnants of an online interview between Peter Jenx, author of The Thai Occult books series and Charlotte Rodgers of Creatures, Creations and Recalibrations: The Art of Charlotte Rodgers. It’s been mastered by Hermetech Mastering. You can hear this below via my SoundCloud account.

A Journey Into the Unknown; Thai Occult Road Trip Part 2: From the 5th to 12th September 2018 I’ll once again travel to Chiang Mai, Thailand, with the wonderful Peter Jenx, author of the The Thai Occult books on Timeless as my trusty and highly experienced guide. I have opted to log and record my journey and pilgrimage on my less complex, verbose and more economical Twitter account. You are most very welcome to follow my experiences meeting old friends and new, Ajarns, exploring hidden caves (not while it’s raining of course), witnessing occult rituals, going through fortune telling with ghosts, witnessing and recording graveyard rituals & being initiated into the fine art of Sak Yant. It won’t be dull, that I can most definitely guarantee! Photographic excerpts from my first Thai Occult Road Trip from last year can be seen here.
