Our Imagekind store which formerly handled all print sales has been closed permanently and will be replaced with offerings here at abrahadabra.com in the very near future.
Because Imagekind does not watermark smaller images it has lead to a large amount of small scale theft which is not ok. Closing the account will save us time as we won’t have to chase down as many thieves every day (the ones that don’t credit m1thr0s or Abrahadabra.com)
We hope you will enjoy the new sale system and as always any questions can be directed to the Contact Us page.
News update: UPS and Fedex both charge $90 for shipping the Mutational Alchemy Tarot to our extra long distance customers in AU, EU and Asia, sorry guys looks like we’ll still be using USPS and Ebay to handle international sales. It’s a 14% price hike at USPS across the board. I’ll try to come up with a value pack of some kind to make the S&H cost more worthwhile.
In other news we’ve had a number of odd delays with the I Ching Beginner kits which I know a few people have been asking me about. The publisher switched distributors and the ISBN appears to have been mixed up with another good I Ching book, not the one we need. At first the new distributor claimed they did not carry it, Princeton contacted me and assured me that they did, and gave me the ISBN, assuring me it was the Wilhelm/Baynes, but I now have a pile of another book that fortunately we’ll be using in the coursework this year anyways. We’re working with them to solve it. This set will be included in the first year coursework which we hope to release soon so when I do get them back in stock I’ll try to coordinate with our coursework and membership for those who would like to become Mutational Alchemists as well as masters of the I Ching.
Until then for those interested in what we are doing, Mutational Alchemy Essentials 001 is always a good start to see if we have what you are looking for.

First let’s get clear – I don’t think the meaning is outdated, but at the same time I don’t think it’s a very useful term. The occult has just become so meaningless as the hordes assail it with their cheap t-shirts and ripped off art. A few weeks ago m1thr0s and I were going over the term as we always do with any high powered buzzword that triggers strong opinions in people or has become attached to stupid culture in some way.
Our work is completely redefining what the occult means, despite most occultists being unaware of what has been occurring within The Abrahadabra Institute. Hell, to be perfectly honest, most so called occultists wouldn’t understand the paradigm shifts if they were aware of them. I’m currently writing a series meant to address the foundational elements occultists should have had access to as children, but didn’t, in order to fill in the blanks for Da’ath malnourished adults.
A plethora of stupidity out there surrounds the term “occult”, and not only from the “We hate you, let Jesus into your heart” crowd, either. Most of the flak and misunderstanding is coming from the “pagans” or “lightworkers” but it’s not fair to blame all of them, as the herd behavior is also just typical of humanity in general. Humans are self important, immature, sloppy and dangerous animals.
Decades go by where popular culture gets obsessed with one mysterious and exotic authentic practice or people and the magick and power starved hordes help themselves to it like it’s their own personal fucking buffet. I call it cultural rape, and the occult is experiencing this attack in a major way. It does no good for the culture it appropriates – the sacred arts of Japan were being turned into a circus during the “ninja craze” of the 80’s. The damage it deals is practically irreparable, like the cultural equivalent of radioactive waste, the bullshit just never goes away.
Native Americans got the short end of the stick when a plethora of plastic shamans tried to hijack their religion for their own stupid, shallow and self serving purposes. This hasn’t actually stopped – once it begins and no one firmly takes a stand against it, it will continue. (American Indians usually attack back through disinformation.)
I could go on, but it suffices to say that none of these culture addicts will ever apprehend true knowledge and magick themselves – it is not for them. The occult and all of its trappings have become the newest craze, spurred on by the Harry Potter crowd approaching their teen and adult years and all of the free flowing parental allowance that goes along with it.
The diseases of humankind, smug self satisfaction and comfortable ignorance are trying to sink their dull claws into the occult, but it’s a slippery, dangerous slope, in fact far more dangerous than any of the interlopers could ever imagine. I don’t think that it’s attributable to any good intentions on the part of maguses anywhere, or even The Great Work. Distracting from the real problems facing humanity with cheapness and vulgarity is the modality of Choronzon and should not be trusted.
The powers of the Magus in the hands of dullards and dimwits can never be allowed – it’s the sort of thing that causes life itself to crumble. It got to the point where early this year both m1thr0s and I wanted to cut off ties to the occult and just go “hey we have this practice, this is what we do” – in regards to Mutational Alchemy – and leave the occult right out of it. I’m not sure I’m in love with the term occult anymore, not if I have to share space with a bunch of mouthbreathers and pinched dullards.
