Welcome to Magick Without Tears

Learn Magick in a safe space where you can grow into your practice no matter your experience level.

The story so far...

Hello! My name is Marco Visconti, and I am a lifelong student and practitioner of the Western Esoteric Tradition, and my specific focus is Thelema and its evolution.

During my life so far I wore many different masks: at some point, I was a successful musician and DJ in the industrial-goth scene: you might have heard of XP8, Faderhead, Grendel, and VNV Nation, all bands I have been involved with in one form or another.

Around a decade ago I then moved from my native Rome, Italy to my beloved London, UK: and once there, I joined the team at Treadwell’s Books and furthered my passion for books, especially of the old and rare kind.

Since the late 90s, I got involved in the world of esoteric orders, circles, and covens, and received initiations in the A∴A∴, Ordo Templi Orientis, the Choronzon Club, as well as being consecrated a Bishop in the Ecclesia Gnostica - of which now I run, along with a College of Bishops and Sophias, one of its many manifestations.

In the past few years, and after some truly disturbing experiences I chronicled here, I came to accept that the time for Orders is over. All the Secrets one could write down have long been published and dispersed to the four winds.

Why joining us?

And that’s why we are here: to offer a new, interactive way of engaging with esoteric teaching. There are no gurus or ascended masters here, no boasting of A∴A∴ grades or belittling those who have not received a formal initiation. This is a safe space where you can grow into your practice no matter your experience level.

Consider me a sort of esoteric personal trainer: someone who did the Work diligently for almost 3 decades now, and is more than happy to share the tips and tricks of the trade with those truly willing to learn.

What you will find

A vibrant community of fellow seekers that constantly engages in magical discourse, without trolls or know-it-alls.

Over 30 lessons in practical magick and over 120 hours of recorded Q&A sessions, with more coming each month. Now rewritten, revamped, and bundled together in the Magick Without Tears 4-month course.

Thoth Tarot Magick: a course designed to be studied and practiced over 6 months, decoding the alchemical and magical secrets of the Crowley-Harris deck.

The Holy Guardian Angel Experience: an 8-week course to discover the history and practices related to the single most important experience in High Magick and Thelema.

A selection of shorter lessons and workshops covering topics from Aleister Crowley and Thelema, Babalon, Esoteric Freemasonry, Sigil Magick, Seals and Talismans, the Qliphoth, and much more!

The Tarot of the Month, where I give you a general outlook of what the next 4 weeks will be like on a macrocosmic level.

Over 3 years of recorded livestreams focusing on the community's questions: we call them The Ramblenomicon (usually focused on more advanced topics) and De Ramblis Mysteriis.

Monthly explorations of the Enochian system, as well as the study and practice of various Grimoires such as the Arbatel and the Ars Goetia.

Guided pathworkings exploring extravagant vistas up and down the Spheres.

A full archive of all my seminars and workshops on specific topics so far. More will be added in time!

1-on-1 monthly mentorship. This is the perfect choice if you want all your personal questions answered, and a constant guide on your own journey.

Religious and political discourse: I am firmly convinced that a magician must be informed and able to discuss both, and you will find plenty of it from me and the other members of the community. We stand strongly against the resurgence of fascist philosophies and how they are seeping back into occulture, and will not tolerate dog-whistling of any kind.

No tolerance towards spiritual escapism: magick is a lifelong alchemical process of deep transformation. If you are looking for something quirky to do while you scroll your Instagram or TikTok feed, this community might not be for you.

No tolerance towards conspirituality: QAnon is a criminal organisation, Pizzagate is a myth created by far-right loonies, and vaccines are good for your health.
