Tau Sigan  I BEGAN MY JOURNEY as a Gnostic of the Kabalistic Aaronic & Melchizadeck Priesthoods.  While utilizing the ceremony of Hebraic Kabala & Japanese Onmyoudo (The Craft), my interest in majickal energy drew me towards the ordinances & rites of Paganism from certain cultures worldwide – including Celtic Druidry from where I later adopted the Pagan faith. Combining the art-form of Hebraic Kabala, Græco-Roman Gnostic wisdom, with the ideals & freedom of Druidry, I went on to develop something unique yet authentic & complete in approach to the Old Religion. As a reformer of Gnostic Paganism as practiced by the Romano-Celtic people, I began constituting a unique Pagan Order combined with Gnostic philosophy & symbolism to create a universal-understanding in expanding the Collective or ‘Sublime Consciousness’. I would like to express sincere gratitude & the up most respect to those mentors who have been there to guide my path over the years & to whom I owe much credit. Blessed Be.

Dr. Leo Louis Martello

Born 26 September 1930 Born into the Summerland 29 June 2000

Where do I begin to write about a legend? A man who   gave tirelessly of himself for the fight for human rights, animal rights, gay   and lesbian rights, and for Witches worldwide to worship in complete freedom?

Leo Martello was an amazingly compassionate man. He never turned away   anyone who genuinely needed his time and effort in the pursuit of a just cause.   He fought long and hard for the freedom of Witches and Pagans. He coined the   very phrase: “Out of your broom closets and on to your brooms!”  He was always humorous, but in that humor there were always wise lessons. He was fond   of saying: “The coward finds a way out; the brave find a way.” And he was   himself brave and always in the forefront of a controversial or difficult   movement. It is to his credit that he stood up in the initial movement for gay   and lesbian rights in New York City’s “Stonewall Riots” in the 1970’s. A  spirit of light imbued the mortal body of Dr. Leo Louis Martello. He was equal   to a million Suns and was crucial to the craft’s beginning in this country. He   was not one who jumped on the bandwagon because it was the “in” thing to do.   Many write about the craft; however, Leo possessed an inner fire–the “heart fire” of the true Witch.  Read more…
