Virgil is a writer who has worked extensively with Franz Bardon’s system of magic and enjoys sharing his insights through various outlets. He considers himself a practitioner of Bardon’s system but not a follower of the Bardon tradition. Specific interests of his pertaining to Bardon’s system of magic include mindfulness, elemental equilibrium, divine missions, sylphs, discernment, and prayer. He is currently in the midst of pursuing an MBSR teaching certification and runs the mindfulness blog The Great Now. Although Virgil is a Christian, he is also a student of several Buddhist traditions as well as a member of OBOD and SRF.

Virgil believes that who a magician really is depends on his or her level of compassion, kindness, and forgiveness. According to Virgil, magical skills, psychic abilities, and occult knowledge can never substitute for these three traits, but aspiring magicians, in their rush to explore the Greater Mysteries, often lose sight of this basic spiritual fact. Many of Virgil’s writings are intended to remind readers that one cannot be a good magician without first being a good person, and that at the end of the day any form of power, including magical power, is of no value unless one has the wisdom needed to use it for the purposes of love. Although he is able to write about the technical aspects of magic, Virgil rarely does so, opting instead to produce writings that help aspiring magicians keep sight of the things that truly matter.
