In this episode of the Shaman’s Notebook, Suzanne LaGrande interviews writer, blogger, online art curator Sarah Elizabeth.

Sarah has just published The Art of the Occult, a visual sourcebook for the Modern Mystic, which features art from a variety of occult sources and practices: from theosophy and kabbalah, from alchemy; spiritualism to sacred geometry. It introduces the ideas behind different occult traditions and showcases the artists who have been influenced by them. 

Included in the book are symbolic and mythical images of the Pre-Raphaelites; the automatic drawing of Hilma af Klint and Madge Gill; Leonora Carrington's surrealist interpretation of myth, alchemy and kabbalah; and much more.

In the interview Ms. Elizabeth discusses how her interest curiosity about art and artists that she loved, combined with her interest in occult themes inspired this book,  how art juxtaposes different realities and how it helps ask important questions particularly in times of upheaval.
