I was a long-time student of Kenneth
Grant, and a member of the Typhonian O.T.O. from 1973 - 2000, when I
received the XIth Degree and began to work on my own. Prior to that, I
held the position of Xth Degree Administrative Head of the Order in
America (in the latter half of the 1990's), after which I passed that
Office over to Michael Staley. The name-change to Ordo Typhonis was
designated by Kenneth Grant.
I would suggest a second look at your remarks on Mr. Grant and Mr.
Staley. The Typhonian Trilogies brought about a resurgence of interest
not only in studying the 93 Current, but in studying it experimentally,
which I think is important. "Ordo Typhonis" is certainly not a "small
or nonexistent group," and Mr. Staley is a trustworthy Order Head,
especially to those Students attracted to the Cha'an and
Advaita-Vedanta approach. He surely requires genuine occult work from
members. Consider also that Mr. Staley, like Mr. Grant, requires no
Admission fees, Initiation fees, or dues.
I should like to add a negative rating for Linda Falorio
(www.anandazone.nu). After knowing her since 1974 and working with her
when I was in charge of Kenneth Grant's Nightside Tarot project (which
she abandoned to do her own Shadow Tarot), I find her to be
self-aggrandizing. In an interview she claims to have been called "a
true Priestess of Typhon" while she repeatedly told me "We are NOT
Typhonians!". She has not done much genuine occult work, And certainly
sipping cognac in the den of a polite British occultist does not mean
one has crossed the Abyss. To take a partial quote from Liber AL vel
Legis, she tries to "strike hard & low" but only fights like an
