Josephine McCarthy is a British adept based in the
south west of England. She was raised and educated in Yorkshire in the north of England, and worked for many years in the USA. She began her magical adventures in the 1970’s, and by the 1990’s she was teaching extensively in the USA and UK, giving lectures at conferences, and experimenting with magical forms. She is the author of numerous books on western magic and magical subjects, and is the author of the extensive and free Quareia course in magical training, of which she is director.
In this interview, Rudolf and Josephine talk about the similarities between artistic and magical creativity, about what magic can achieve (or not) in everyday’s life, about the importance of knowing historical, geographical and
other background of the places you live and do magic in, and many other topics of great interest.

I received a link to your podcast from a good friend of mine as he thought this podcast would give me some inspiration regarding the esoteric work that I’m practicing. I must admit that I have no knowledge about magic or esotericism, but I am very interested in practicing esoteric work. I have recently been practicing mirror scrying using Jean Dubuis’s fundamentals of esoteric knowledge, but I havent been succeeding it quite well. My friend suggested that listening to Josephine McCarthy would give me great information about western esotericism. Thank you for this podcast, I really appreciate it!
Thank you, FLora! I am glad that your friend gave you that hint, and especially that it helped you. Hope you will stay with us listening for a long time!
