Golden Dawn Talk at Féile Draíochta

Earlier today (or rather yesterday, since it's after midnight) I gave a talk on the Golden Dawn at the Féile Draíochta magical conference here in Dublin. It was recorded and is now available to view on YouTube. Unfortunately the last five minutes or so, including a brief demonstration of the Lesser Ritual of the Pentagram, was not captured, but the majority of it is available.

The talk itself is a basic introduction to what the Golden Dawn is, a brief look at its history, and addresses a few key points relevant to the audience, such as the place of religion (and Paganism in particular) within the Golden Dawn tradition. I hope some of you it interesting viewing material.

What a great video!! I have been looking into joining a magical organization and having a difficult time wading through the hype certain groups present. Thanks for a clear look at the Golden Dawn and its history.

I thoroughly enjoyed your talk, but, em, as a highly abrassive, em, person, I have to, em, poke a bit. Its wonderful to see such a coherent synopsis of the Golden Dawn, and ideosyncracies of speech made it cute.
(I wouldnt poke like this if I didnt think you'd take it in good humour - and, em, well you can always not approve it if you feel your readers dont have so sadistic a sense of humour as I.
