THE STORY SO FAR...
I am a London-based antiques and rare book trader and consultant. I specialise in esoteric literature, with a particular interest in Thelema and Crowleyana.

From 2014 to 2018 I worked as Online Shop Manager of Treadwell’s Books, a hub of international expertise on Western esotericism, and in August 2017 I moved on to managing the newly formed Special Projects department, focusing on events and media outreach.

Prior to that, I lived a life as a music professional with an international career spanning over 15 years, gaining credence as a countercultural figure in the alternative underground scene. I am a founding member of electro-industrial band XP8, and was a member of Faderhead, Unter Null, Grendel, and VNV Nation. As DJ Azrael, my ministrations included Resistanz Festival, Club AntiChrist, and Slimelight (UK), Death Guild (San Francisco, CA), Summer Darkness (Utrecht, NL), and Zoe Club, Decadence, and Ritual (Italy), and countless others.

A Thelemite and Freemason, I have been a member of the international esoteric community for over two decades, receiving initiation into the A∴A∴, Choronzon Club, and Ordo Templi Orientis: I am currently the driving force behind Ecclesia Gnostica Universalis in Anglia, a thelemic and gnostic church not tied to any particular Order or organisation. Italian science-fiction author (and very good friend) Francesco Dimitri pays tribute to my underground persona through his signature character Dagon in La Ragazza dei miei Sogni. A film adaptation was released in 2017 (trailer here). I was responsible for the translation of numerous key esoteric texts from English to Italian, such as Michael Bertiaux’s Lucky Hoodoo and Cosmic Meditation, and Kenneth Grant’s Against the Light.

Currently I organise and run a series of workshops here in London, where I teach the basis of Thelema, Rosicrucianism, and Esoteric Freemasonry to a wider public outside the bonds of oaths and secrets, as well as coming back to producing music as Pylon People.

WHY PATREON?
A current question for those attending the workshops was, "what happens next?" 
And often I would get asked if I were to provide online content, lessons, and workshops for those who could not attend the classes in London. 

So here we are on Patreon, offering several different tiers for those who just want to dip their toes into the world of magick, sigil, tarot and the wonderful world of the Western Esoteric Tradition, as well as those who are fully engaged and want to see how deep the rabbit hole goes (hint: it goes deeper than you imagine).

TESTIMONIALS
Here's some comments from those who attended my courses here in London, especially the six-weeks long Thelema Without Tears:

"Marco is an incredible, awe-inspiring teacher and the recent Thelema course was an amazing experience. I can say with complete confidence that Marco will exceed your expectations. Highly recommended: attending his courses are a bit like entering an unstoppable whirling vortex but in a good way!"
- Victoria T., London

"In Magic of all types, you can only learn so much from books and from the Web. There is no substitute for being taught in a formal, structured way by someone who is experienced and knowledgeable, having "risen through the grades" of an established magical order. This is especially true of Thelema, with its multi level complexities of symbolisms and meanings. Marco Visconti's "Thelema Without Tears" course at Treadwell's ticked all the boxes in this respect, with it's perfect balance of Theory, Group Practical Work and Solo Praxis performed as homework. It was a course I had to be on, to quote one of the other group members. It left me with a deeper understanding of what Crowley's Theology, Philosophy and Magick was all about. As an added bonus, we were, as a Group, given the experience of working with the Goetia, something that I have long wanted to do but don't think I'd have dared to do by myself."
- Mick J., London

"Attending one of Marco’s courses is a little like plunging head first down the rabbit hole, in the most exhilarating way. His classes are underpinned by theoretical and philosophical principles honed through years of magickal praxis; the kind of practical, experiential teaching through which he expertly guides each student is both invaluable and incomparable to the education one can glean from books alone. I experienced one of the most powerful meditative states of my life and a result of one of Marco’s visualisations. All this, punctuated by indispensable good humour and approachability - you couldn’t ask for a worthier mentor."
- Charlotte L., Bristol

"Marco is an excellent teacher, who has a rare ability to distill complex esoteric ideas into a format accessible to people with a wide range of experience. His knowledge of all things occult seems both deep and limitless, and he is more than happy to share this knowledge in a good humoured and patient manner. Marco has helped me to make the leap from reading about Magick in books, to becoming a practicing ritual magician. I highly recommend his tutelage to anybody wishing to explore esoterica and their own magical potential."
- Rob B., London

"Marco possesses a rare quality in this field: deep knowledge and understanding of magickal practice coupled with absolute integrity. I took his Thelema Without Tears course in 2019 and was blown away by the depth of theory and actual practice that presented. He delivered something that was at every step above and beyond my expectations. I highly recommend his work and trust his guidance explicitly. A true Adept!"
- Elise O., London

"Thelema was for me the first 'magical path' I ever learned about -through reading-and the one that made the most sense -organically. I had read extensively, particularly regarding the personality of A.C. but it had been practically impossible to enact any of the magical practices -as is usually to those who want to get started in magic but are not part of a group. 
In this sense, this workshop was a unique opportunity to finally lay the foundations of Thelema basics in a way that is tried and tested by a dedicated practitioner and not derived from individual conjecture. Having step-by-step guidance was invaluable but so was having a group of like-minded people 
to practice together and share ideas and possibly -a vision for things you'd like to do."
- Elli P., London

"Thelema Without Tears was a fantastic course led by Marco. As a group we did some fantastic work together, things you wouldn't imagine possible at your average course.. I believe there is very little that when posed to Marco he will not be able to give you an informative, straight and in depth answer to. This is someone who absolutely knows their stuff, I highly recommend Marco and his work."
- Emily A., London
