Welcome to Occult of Personality: esoteric podcast extraordinaire. Now, in episode number 224, we’re joined by the man behind ARCANVM podcast and YouTube channel, Ike Baker!

Ike Baker is an author, content creator, practicing ceremonialist, and senior initiate of several lineages within the Western Esoteric Traditions, including the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, the Martinist Order of America, and Blue Lodge, and York Rite Freemasonry. With 20 years of study, training, and practice, Ike is also a traveling lecturer, instructor for multiple premiere educational organizations including the Institute for Hermetic Studies, and a Temple Chief of the HOGD. He hosts the ARCANVM YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/@arcanvm), and podcast, where he produces presentation-style videos on the occult and esoteric, and converses with some of the foremost practitioners, scholars, and authors in the fields of magic, esotericism, and the occult.

This was a really fun interview because Ike and I got to delve deeply into what the spiritual path entails and requires of us, and we got quite philosophical and contemplative as we did so. It was great to speak to a fellow podcaster who’s so prolific and has a great depth of experience along with a longing to aid his companions on the path by providing us with such excellent lectures, interviews, and a presence that entices us to learn more and become better than we are. I fully support ARCANVM and Ike Baker’s work. Hearing him talk about it was a privilege.

Occult of Personality podcast is made possible by you, the listeners, and by the subscribers to chamberofreflection.com, our membership website who aids us in the cause of informed, authentic, and accessible interviews about western esotericism. Thank you again! Because of your support, we’re able to bring you recordings of this caliber and many more to come. The intro music is “Awakening” by Paul Avgerinos (http://magnatune.com/artists/albums/avgerinos-gnosis?song=3) and the outro music is “Initiation ” by Adam Fielding (http://magnatune.com/artists/albums/fielding-lightfields?song=1).

In the Chamber of Reflection, Ike Baker delved even more deeply into his thoughts about esotericism in the modern age. This part of the interview was dope! So, please join us for that exclusive second half of the interview. Also remember that we’re in the midst of our Meditations on the Tarot Study Circle that is open to all Chamber of Reflection paid members. In October, we’re meeting to discuss the Tower, and you should join us!

I want to remind you that although you’re able to listen to this podcast at no charge, it costs time and money to create.
