Operation Hail Eris! and Festival 23

We learned through our channels that on 23 July 2016 somewhere in the north of England Discordian Popes will gather for a weekend of ritual and mischief. They describe it as:

An interactive celebration of literature and the arts; of theatre, playshops and music inspired by the Discordian movement; a society of philosophers, theologians, magicians, scientists, artists, clowns and similar maniacs who are intrigued with Eris, Goddess of Confusion, and with her doings.

We think it will be advantageous for Kia Agents to attend either covertly or openly. We might gather some useful intel about their operations. Perhaps this will allow us to coordinate our actions, recruit new agents and further infiltrate their collective. It will be a great opportunity for our agents to meet in person and socialize too.

If you would like to volunteer for this mission visit the KIA forum to discuss the details.

You can find more about the event on  Festival 23 website.

KIA Egregore group sigil charging.

On Sunday evening, towards the close of the retreat weekend, we started creating a mass sigil, to be charged by the KIA egregore. As preparation I had created a pencil outline of a kind of KIA logo that combines elements of current, previous and possible future KIA logos. These elements include a shatkona, a vesica pisces containing an eye, Austin Spares glyph for Kia, and Michael Moorcock’s sigil of chaos. I did so on a large A2 sized sheet of cartridge paper which I taped to a wooden board. I provided black, red, blue and green marker pens of two different thicknesses for agents to draw their sigils.

I had invited those not able to attend to submit sigils online, in a post on Crowleymas, (Oct 12th). I made sure that external submissions were included in the final design.  As we sat and talked, we took turns adding to the sigil, each of us making several visits and adding more each time. As we went to bed on Sunday night, the sigil remained unfinished, so we left out and continued on Monday morning over a casual breakfast.

This was the result:

You can help charge it using whatever method of sigil charging suits you. Probably staring at it for a short while will do the trick…

 

 

Contacting the KIA Egregore with Ouija board!

It was the October full moon as we opened the 2013 KIA retreat, and it seemed like a good night to talk to the KIA Egregore. In the past we’ve done this via a computer program that randomly combines sentences provided by various KIA agents. But that program is currently broken, and besides, this time we decided to opt for something a bit more Victoriana: an English Qabalah ouija board.

After opening the rite with a KIA IAO Centring ritual, we sat around the board and began our first experiments with the board. The atmosphere was relaxed and at first we had to try out a few different items as a planchette, ultimately settling upon an upturned glass tealight holder.

Even then it seemed reluctant to move from ‘Hello’, once it had moved there, so we stopped for a break and practised some glossolalia to shift conscious awareness away from the rational part our minds.

What follows is an account of the conversation with the spirit that followed.  In italics are the questions we spoke aloud to the spirit, in bold are its messages to us. Some of these messages need to be deciphered using English Qabalah. We will make a post about those later. The board has spaces for Hello, Bye, Yes and No, in addition to the letters of the English alphabet.

Hello KIA.

Preparation for Egregore sigil charging ritual

With the the KIA retreat starting in less than a week, I have some last minute preparations to do. As I was preparing a mass sigil charging rite to be empowered by the KIA Egregore, it occurred to me that we could accept sigil submissions from those of you who can not attend in body.

You can expect a full write-up of how this and other rituals went, after the event.

You can attach images of any sigils you want included in the ritual in the comments below.

 

KIA Retreat – October 2013

First off, for various reasons I won’t go into, we can no longer do the retreat on our prefered dates of Crowleymas this year.  But if we get two or three more confirmations, we CAN do it the following week.

UPDATE: The retreat is going ahead this weekend, with at least 5 people in attendance, however it might not be at any of the places mentioned below. Any new comers with whom we haven’t had existing contact should at this point meet with us prior to the retreat itself. A good place. and possibly the only opportunity to do this, is at the Open Circle Moot on Wednesday 16th.  The greyed out text below is no longer the plan, but is left in place so you can see what we originally intended for the retreat.

That will mean arriving at Loch Ness on Friday 18th of October, and leaving on Monday 21st.

Second, the Lodge, as we know from last year, has one master double room with balcony and spring bath, one double bedroom and one twin room with two single beds.  It seems a little unfair to charge the same price for all these options, so this year we would like to divide the cost up as follows:

Master double: £235 (can sleep two).

Double: £210 (can sleep two).

Twin: £180 (can sleep two).

Total cost of lodge is £625.

The hot tub on the veranda is available to all staying in the lodge.

So far, we have three confirmed guests, including myself and Lolita who are happy to take the Master bedroom.  Our other guest is a single male who would occupy one of the beds in the twin room.  This means we can accommodate one other couple and another single in this lodge.

If we got another 4-6 guests in addition to this we could book two lodges, or if we got 1-3 extra there is a B&B nearby that can offer accommodation at similar prices.  But not self catering.

If however, we don’t get any more confirmations, the meeting this year will not be held in a lodge at all.  It doesn’t make sense for us to book the lodge at £200 each, as I originally posted.  I think that is too expensive for us all.  As cool as the weekend is.  Let me know what you all want to do.

KIA Retreat 2012

After the successful and enjoable KIA Retreat 2012 in Foyers by Loch Ness, and a short walk from Boleskin House, the KIA Egregore feels stronger than ever.  Much of the retreat has been written up in detail, so I’ll use this post to summarise the writeup so it gets contained in one place:

Also I’d just like to add, that I had originally intended a group healing rite at some point, although I had no definite plan for how that would happen.  When one of our group contacted a spirit that seemed to have healing properties I suggested we ask it, but the one that made contact seemed reluctant to do this so I didn’t pursue this further.  Instead when I found myself alone in the hot-tub I meditated on the healing energies of the experience.  After absorbing the healing I felt I needed for myself I thought of projecting outwards to those I had heard were in need:

  1. A relative of +Dositheos that had been injured in an act of violence.
  2. Those on the Congregational Illuminism healing list.  I didn’t have the list on me but thought about sending healing energies in support of whoever might be on it.

So a good time was had by all.  Next year, we shall make it bigger and better…

KIA Meet Up 3rd March 2012 (personal view by Lolita Perdurabo.)

Last Saturday few of us met up in London. It was a second unofficial KIA meeting in modern history of KIA, that is since I joined in 2008. I am sure there were some meetings happening before that but @Anton would know this better than me. The first meeting took place in November 2011 in Krakow and it involved @Lolita, @Anton, @Hippi, @Sparrowhawk and two other friends. Both those meeting were fantastic and I had a feeling of being between family and friends I know for  along time.

We ( this being @Lolita, @Anton, @Spiral, @Tom @Trace with her friend and Michael from Free Illuminism)  meet on the entrance to British Museum. It was all rather chaotic as there was 7 of us most of which never meet in real life before.  After hugs, handshakes and introductions we headed for a pint. So it had happened that we ended up in ‘the Plough’ a pub frequently visited by Aleister Crowley in his days. We went upstairs, joined few tables and carried on talking on all sort of subjects including, Alchemy, Symbolism, Correspondences in Magick, our private life to name  a few. Me and Anton brought with us KIA egregor doll, the Green Troll and Scarlet Troll women from my Troll Tribe. Trace brought with her Fredford and feathers from her hens that were given to KIA egregore doll. It felt great to sit and chat there for a first time and be able to recognize each other faces and feel we’re all friends. I had a real sense of bonding with everyone but sitting in between Michael and Anton I mostly managed to talk to them and a little bit to Trace.

After few pints we moved to Camden and shared lovely Lunch in a vegan buffet. @Tom and @Spiral suggested this and I have to admit it was a great idea! I loved red date tea as much as the food. (Thanks guys!) This time I chose seat next to Spiral and we had a great conversation with about our psychedelic experiences and also about mushrooms picking.  It was very inspiring lunch. Michael had to leave us to catch flight back to Prague. We had one more pint in the World’s End- steam punk pub with an amazing interior after which we strolled in Regent’s Park until it got dark. We also stopped to climb a wooden climbing frame with nets hanging like a hammock. It was fun hanging in the air watching the sky and chatting to each other.

It was a fantastic day spent amongst kindred spirits. It only makes me wish we could do this more often.

Thanks to everybody for turning up and making it happen.
