About the Webmaster
My name is Melisande Rozele Maquet. I live in Texas with Darcy Kuntz, two dogs, and two cats.
As I was growing up, I took a great interest in and practiced things such as lucid dreaming, handwriting analysis, self-hypnosis, meditation, yoga, and affirmations.
I have practiced magick since 1998. I lived and breathed Wicca for about four years, always as a solitary, writing my own rituals, experimenting, learning by trial and error. Craving more spiritual and experimental goals, I branched out into studying and practicing elements of Thelema, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, chaos magick, Qabalah, alchemy, etc.
I was a member of Dragon Rouge (in Sweden) for a few years, but it’s no fun when the closest lodge is thousands of miles away. Today I am a member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, the Martinist Order of Unknown Philosophers, and the Ordo Templi Astartes. I find most aspects of Thelema agreeable. Hermetic Qabalah and the Tarot have an especially warm place in my heart. When I need to get something practical done in a magical way, I usually turn to chaos magick techniques.
Nowadays my magical practice is geared towards self-knowledge as well as exploring different realities through shifts in perception, trance, meditation, etc. I strive to be an effective individual, a source of positive change in the world. Part of being effective is knowing yourself and your environment, and magick helps to uncover those truths.
