I know Lon fairly well, and studied with his Teacher and A.'.A.'. mentor before she passed. He is awesome and fun, and ever so humble about making the forbidden approachable, heh. I watch him mostly for pointers on how to present, as crowds tend to really appreciate his anecdotal manner of instruction. I got the total set of all these DVDs, 250. meh, I am a completionist. That is three DVDs on the Thoth Deck, five on the Great Work series, and 3 free gifts. 22 bucks and change each for the whole pack.

Babalon Jones, I might be having a full viewing of all of of these DVD's in or around Philadelphia PA at Thelesis Lodge O.T.O. where I am a full time member and give presentations on a variety of subjects. I need to talk to publisher to make sure it is ok for a public viewing at a non-profit event, out of respect for his work. If not, we will just pile into someone's house to watch it. If you or anyone else want to know more about this, pm me. Me and my fiancee are getting this as an early wedding gift, (from me).

I will also be teaching a class on Rider Waite Smith tarot in relation to Thelema, and the O.T.O. and E.G.C. rites. It is highly personal interpretation, but I feel is applicable by others, and has as much research as skepticism. For me, it is more important to use what works, that to just study for some objective history. Speculation is critical to the proper of measure of enthusiam and skepticism spoken about in "The Soldier and the Hunchback."

I went 12 hours+ to Chicago to see his workshop on Tarot of Ceremonial Magic. It was totally worth it because of how much my fiancee to be learned. Yup; totally driving in a white-out. I have had this deck for more than a decade and recommend it highly if for nothing but flashcards for everything in 777 and a few other things. I tend to not use as much G.D. Enochian formua as go straight to Dee's work, but it is consistent with G.D. work and Crowely's Liber Chanokh. And that is what most people want explained to them.

I just gave one of these decks to a friend who doesn't "get" the Thoth deck and dismissed Tarot in general, and in two days, he started to actually get it, sort of. well, he's on his way, at least. It is highly compatible for introductory Thoth Deck studies, and I hope these DVD's get a bit more explicit in some things that are not openly published or discussed.
