About this blog: This blog is a diary of magical events in my life that I find particularly remarkable and wish to record. It is also an organizational tool for me, my little home for myself on the web, if you will. From this writing nucleus of mine, I direct my public diary posts toward my constant companion, one of my uber selves, my guardian angel, my only friend and enemy, whom I call Ganymede. If you’re new to “wizardry” (you aren’t but you might think you are) you can learn more about my particular idiom in the first couple of posts.
About me: I’m just another girl in the void, as implied by my name, Kora Kaos; an individuated form in the abyss like all the rest. Being a human in the void is all any of us can really claim. I like to have fun with life and religion, so sometimes I use labels (mind you all labels are ultimately meaningless) such as wizard or Cleric of Ganymede for myself. If anyone thinks such things, and magic, and tarot, and astrology, and religious ritual, and occult matters, et cetera to be silly, they probably just need a better sense of fun. I practice magic just as everyone can and does and so I fancy calling myself a wizard, and the hobby entertains me. For those of you who are curious about with which gods I spend my time, they would be Jesus, Dionysos, Shiva, my own personal Ganymede, and then of course others each in their own turn. My waking life.
Okay, I also have an identity with lots of fine print … this vessel I haul around on this planet like a space captain has experiences and a life situation like anyone.
I studied theatre, ancient languages, and theology at the University of Iowa, the great center of the world for playwriting. I later relocated to to L.A. and involved myself with improv, yoga, and the wonderful community my friends offer at the Hollywood Fringe Festival, the biggest arts festival in the West and a ripe vortex for new and influential plays. I just wrote and produced a play called CATAMITUS: Love Slave to God, for the Festival, to great reviews, which I’ll soon remount. I’ve volunteered with visibility and critiques since the Festival began. I’ve acted in, written, and performed several pieces throughout life, including a piece for the Company of Angels in downtown Los Angeles. My “duty unto Krishna”- unto Ganymede- is to control the illusions of reality through theatre, and thereby improve life for the world.
Yes, I act, write, produce, and do many other things with Theatre. In the science and practical application of the Spiritual, I’m a yogi, I’m very adept with tarot, and I work with dreams, relaxation, hypnosis, and astrology. Here, I write mostly of theatre and religio-spiritual matters.
