About Hermetic Library

My name is John, and I am the enigmatic supervillain known, to some, as The Librarian for the Hermetic Library. I would love to have your support and encouragement to continue the ongoing work and expansion of all the projects related to this site while also joining me here as a Patron!

It’s a pleasure and a privilege to be of service as the librarian, but, moreover, your interest and support for the work of the library is very much appreciated. You make what I do possible! You keep the library online! Thank you!

As an ongoing Patron of Hermetic Library, you help keep the site online and open access, so that it can be a resource for everyone, for millions of visits a year by researchers, academics, practitioners, students, and the curious!

There's a lot of benefits now that you are part of the insider circle of supporters doing your part to keep the site alive and growing.

As a Patron, you help determine the future of the site by supporting my work at digital preservation and presentation of important works in the living Western Esoteric Tradition, Hermeticism in a broad-sense, and Aleister Crowley’s Thelema. Not only that, but you will also support all the work I do with encouraging new music, art and letters from those who feel drawn to these topics and ideas, or, especially, incorporate and manifest ritual and magick in their works.

As a Patron, you help make the magick. Gander at the variety of perks available. Select the best level of ongoing support that you are able and willing to pledge. And, let's conjure our community and evoke excellence together!

I have recently released Magic, Music and Ritual 14, the Hermetic Library Anthology Album for 2018 on the anniversary of the library's birthday on Dec 3rd, 1996. Over twenty years!

Your support will give me the chance to find out and share with you what is possible for the future. Let's do this together!

Other ways to support Hermetic Library

Patreon is not the only way to support the work of the library. If you'd like other options, I would ask you to consider this alternatives: you could subscribe at Bandcamp. I have set up both of this alternative in order to provide a variety of ways to support my work that might suit your preferences. There are many other ways beyond these to help support the work of the library, but if you've an idea not mentioned let's talk about that too!

A basic monthly funding level for the library.

If just 1% of the people on social media following the Hermetic Library, or an even smaller fraction of those who visit the library site, were to become Patrons then we would cover all the monthly costs of keeping the library online and provide additional resources to start expanding; such as paying additional creators to help with new content and additional help in preparing and proofing more relevant public domain material.

I pledge that all funds beyond the basic funding goal will be paid forward to help support other creatives, projects, researchers, &c. doing esoteric and occult work similar to the library.
