On the first Monday of each November, a mixed group of around 50 Pagans, Magicians and other unconventionally spiritual people gather in the City of London to perform a series of public Rituals. Money Burners are well represented within their number.
Should we make Noel Edmonds illegal then? Does daytime TV drive you to heroin? I wouldn’t be at all surprised.
How to propitiate the gods of our own internal being: that is the question that lies at the crux of our time…
After St Paul’s we walked to the Royal Courts of Justice on the Strand, where King Arthur read out the Royal Proclamation forgiving debt: “I, Arthur Uther Pendragon, having been raised Druid King of Britain on the Coronation Stone at Kingston upon Thames in January 1998, this being the first day of the Celtic NewContinue reading “Money, Magic and the Imagination – Part VIII”
So we’re coming towards the end of our tale now. Two rituals done, two to go. The next took place on the concourse in front of St Paul’s Cathedral and was lead by John Constable in the guise of John Crow, his alter-ego.

It represents all that time you have spent, in your office, in your factory, in your art, in your craft, at your desk, in your job, focussing yourContinue reading “Money, Magic and the Imagination Part III – Speech”
We are a group of independent artists, magicians, pagans, druids, and media workers who held a series of ritual events in the City of London on the 7th November 2016. Our aim was to bring the subject of money creation to public attention using ritual as our our symbolic tool.
