Tubelo’s Green Fire: Mythos, Ethos, Female, Male and Priestly Mysteries of The Clan of Tubal Cain with Shani Oates

Hidden Light

This book explores historical and contemporary ideas of witchcraft through the perspective of the Clan of Tubal Cain – a closed Initiatory group aligned to the Shadow Mysteries within the Luciferian stream. As students of arte we mediate the ancestral stream, teaching through practice with the sacred tenets of Truth, Love and Beauty. The Word is thus manifest in deed and vision. “A driving thirst for knowledge is the forerunner of wisdom. Knowledge is a state that all organic life posesses, wisdom is the reward of the spirit, gained in the search for knowledge. Truth is variable – what is true now, will not be true tomorrow, since the temporal truths are dependent upon ethics and social mores – therefore wisdom is possibly eternal Truth, untouched by man’s condition. So we must come to the heart of the People, a belief that is based upon Eternity, and not upon social needs or pressures – the ‘witch’ belief then is concerned with wisdom, our true name, then is the wise people and wisdom is our aim.” – Robert Cochrane (1931-1966) Contents: Mythopoesis / Goda, the Clan of Tubal Cain and Robert Cochrane/ Hekate, Dark Mistress of the Soul/ The Wisdom of Courtly Love/Dance of the Seven Veils/ / Hand of Fatima / Sila na gigh /Dia de los Muertos / Abbots Bromley, the Wild Hunt and Saint Nick / Summer and Winter Customs / The Wild Hunt / Green Knight, Dark God of Light / The Fisher King: Gnostic Priest of the High Mysteries of the Graal / The Divine Duellists / Why Cranes?

Episode 142: Shani Oates Discusses Crafting The Arte Of Tradition

Deeper Down The Rabbit Hole

Shani Oates, in her own words: From the Moorlands (UK) I am able to devote my time to a ‘lived’ tradition which informs and is informed in turn by those devotions. My world, infused with ancestral lore and history finds expression within a Faith that continues to inspire my journey as a mystic, and pilgrim. Manifest through all works, my enquiries are given life through the written word in prose and verse, through visionary sketches, photography and therapeutic holism.  Enriched by other complementary gnostic and Craft ordinations and initiations, my life-long study and research of theology, philosophy and anthropology has deepened my engagement through their Mysteries proper.
