“If a man would persist in his folly, he would become wise”
– William Blake
Pneumatikos discovered the Left Hand Path shortly after leaving the Christian faith in 1998. After witnessing numerous abuses and becoming increasingly appalled by the rampant homophobia and misogyny in the church, Pneumatikos began to question her faith and educate herself on the roots of religion and philosophy.
During this period she declared herself an Atheist and went through a brief ‘conspiracy’ phase. But instead of reacting negatively, she became enamored by the magnificent symbolism on one of the most popular Freemason conspiracy sites at that time. The divine message of the symbols turned out to resonate so strongly that she turned her investigations toward the study of sacred geometry, astro-theology, astro-mythology, philosophy, Freemasonry, ancient religions, archaeology, ceremonial magick, chaos magick, and quantum physics.
Pneumatikos initiated into two local esoteric orders and the global Freemasonry order Le Droit Human (LDH), based in Paris, France. While no longer active in the local esoteric orders, she maintains active Master Mason status in LDH.
Shortly before initiating into Freemasonry, she realized that her own personal philosophy most closely resonated with the Left Hand Path – that of self-empowerment through education and self-exploration. She is a published author and presenter and has taught classes in Sigil Magick and the Tarot at various Pagan, esoteric, and paranormal events.
She equates the figure of Lucifer with that of Prometheus – the Titan who took back fire from the gods and returned it to mankind. She sees both these figures as archetypes, not actual beings. And after overcoming a childhood full of abuse and witnessing further abuses in the church, she realized that the most deadly public enemy is ignorance and vowed to devote her life to learning, growing, and spreading the Light of Knowledge and Wisdom.
Pneumatikos has hosted two Left Hand Path Consortiums; one in Indianapolis, IN in 2014 and another one in Atlanta, GA in 2016. Her Left Hand Path events have featured people from diverse backgrounds and philosophies including Edgar Kerval, Dr. Thomas Karlsson, Corvis Nocturnum (Eric Vernor), Mona Magick, El Bee Kenobe (Larry Brown), Bill Duvendack, Rachel Summers, Winter Laake (John Laake), Jake Block, Robert Podgurski, Lukasz Grochocki, Zach Black, Craig Williams LAc, Toby Chappell, Caleb Storms, Kerry Lynn, Francísco Manía Divina, Shea Bilé, Projekt F, Seven Factor, and more!
