A few words about this page

Thoth-Hermes has been a plan I have been cherishing for a while: a website treating different subjects from the world of the Western Esoteric Tradition  … At the centre of the activity there is a podcast, presenting mainly high quality interviews with important authors, thinkers and and experts, but also other aspects of the field.

I am European. Over the centuries Europe has given birth to most of the currents of what we call the Western Tradition. Over the last century or so there has been a shift towards North America, where many of the leading experts are now located. Also what we find on the internet comes often out of North America and the Anglo-Saxon world. Thoth-Hermes will try to give a strong European accent to our field, but is of course at any time open to esotericists from the whole planet.

I am an Artist. This is why I have also a special interest in artists who are working with influences and impressions from the Esoteric realm in their art, be it performing arts, music or visual art. The podcast and the website will therefore regularly feature artists and their work.

Talk to us!

This site is meant to be yours! Listen to the podcast, get news from the esoteric world, read reviews and the blog, participate in the forum (those features still to come!)!  And please let us know your impressions, share news that you know about with us, let us know about interview guests you would like to hear.

Also, in each podcast episode we will read some of your feedback. For this please use email, or- if you want to leave a spoken message – our service with SpeakPipe!

Other feedback is appreciated on Facebook or Twitter as well.

If you want to get information first hand and be reminded of new episodes, new features etc., sign up for a free membership just on this page and get our newsletter via email. Another possibility to stay tuned is via our Facebook page.

This venture lives through your participation – in all kinds of ways. If you wish and are able to support us also financially, please do so by going to our Patreon page. Your help will be much appreciated.
