A look back on the recent traditional church of Satan gathering/concert


As you can see by watching our video of the event it was successful.
although the expected turn out of over 100 people did not happen 40-50 did show up.
the event was lots of fun I met so many new people and interested individuals gained 20 members who paid their fees 5 of which are now studying to become reverends to represent Theistic Satanism.

Here are just a few photos from the event.
currently we are  talking to more clubs in the area and bands to book future gatherings/concerts
the event was so good that we recorded our first live album at the event it can be bought on itunes amazon and all major digital retailers click here to buy it directly from cd baby from my self and the Traditional church of satan and Americas Trash we thank everyone who showed up in support it was great meeting people and signing books and all that I cant wait till we do it again.
this is proof we are not just an online organization and that we really do interact with the public in a fun way.

Feed the ego don’t kill it

I wish to open this brief article by stating that this is not an attack on anyone or their personal beliefs do not take offense by what Is written in this article,

What is the  ego? and what is its function?
I could spew all sorts or occult vomit that various occultists spew but instead Im going to save you from the same old rhetoric and just provide the actual definition.

ego NOUN

  • 1A person’s sense of self-esteem or self-importance.

    ‘he needed a boost to his ego’
    1.1Psychoanalysis The part of the mind that mediates between the conscious and the unconscious and is responsible for reality testing and a sense of personal identity.

    Compare with id and superego
    1.2Philosophy (in metaphysics) a conscious thinking subject.
    Let me ask you after you have read the definition of (Ego)
    what is so bad about it?

    As a Satanist I believe in self-preservation and the evolution of my own life and existence the ego is the main key in this philosophy.
    In fact I would say that the ego is the most important aspect of any left hand path occultist.
    Any serious practitioner knows that the very definition of left hand path is all about internal alchemy and self deification but without the ego you can not even begin the process.

    Is it not the goal of the Satanist to create his or her own reality?
    How can this be done without the ego?
    I understand in other traditions religions and philosophies that they believe killing the ego frees them from this world.
    and if that is what they believe that’s fine .

    I believe that as long as you are in this physical shell you are not going to leave this world and you can argue this all day long but you will not change my mind.
    I also need to point out that the religions that practice ego death are not apart of the tree that is known as Satanism.

    I ask of you brothers and sisters to not kill your egos but feed them until they are obese to the point that you create your own universes of which you are the god/goddess
    In the name of Satan let it be done Hail Satan.
