The Academy of Arcana on NBC First Look

Last October 10-11 we spent two days filming for the popular TV show, “NBC’s 1st Look” with superstar Ashley Roberts. The focus was on the Academy of Arcana and the Grey School of Wizardry, and we all had a lot of fun. Oberon, Anne Duthers, Lloydiarth, and Stanley Grindstaff showed Ashley how to make and use a magick wand. We just learned that the show will be aired in another week—Saturday night, April 15, at midnight—right after “Saturday Night Live.” We’re very excited to see what they do with this!

Are you into things occult, magickal and metaphysical? Would you like to meet with other local seekers and practitioners who share your interests in the Mysteries? The Academy of Arcana is hosting regular monthly meetups on the first Sunday of each month, where we can get together for conversations, discussions, sharings, circles, and just getting to know each other. Attendance will be limited to 20. Think of this as an old-fashioned Salon, like the famous literary and magickal salons of Bohemian Paris and London…
