“Alexandrian Witchcraft: A Century of Legacy – An Enigmatic Journey through the World of Alex Sanders and the Tradition of Witchcraft he created”

Join Sharon Day as she delves into the intriguing world of Alex Sanders in this three-part lecture series titled “Alexandrian Witchcraft: A Century of Legacy.” The question of how and why the Alexandrian Tradition has survived and thrived throughout multiple, often starkly contrasting decades ranging from hedonism to despair, prosperity to crashes, will be a running theme. In this vein, attendees’ personal experiences and thoughts about Alex, Maxine, and the Tradition will be especially welcome during the Q&A.

Lecture One: “The Occult Revival: Alex Sanders, the Enigma Born amidst Chaos”

This lecture ventures back to 1926, the year of Alex Sanders’ birth, set against the backdrop of the impending Great Depression and two years prior to the publication of Manly P Hall’s profound work “The Secret Teachings of All Ages.” Sanders’ formative years, shaped by the Occult Revival and his own hereditary gifts, offer an intriguing narrative of a young man growing up in an era where the Spiritualism movement was one of the responses to social and economic upheaval during and after WWII. With insight from Maxine Sanders, we will delve into the personal anecdotes and oral lore imparted to her by Alex’s mother, Hannah, which provide a glimpse into his early life steeped in an environment of materialisation mediums and the introduction of Red Feather, a guide who manifested to Alex and with whom he engaged in the ensuing decades.

Sharon Day Bio

American by birth and British by marriage, Sharon’s academic career included one year in Japan as an exchange student in 1980. She would return there, having graduated from law school in New York City in 1992, with her husband, also a lawyer, when he took up a post in Tokyo years later.

After repatriating to London in 1997, Sharon felt drawn to esotericism and the occult, subsequently discovering what she felt was a vocation within Alexandrian witchcraft. Her search for suitable training and practical experience took her from London to Australia, the United States, and finally back to London, where she became the personal student of Maxine Sanders, co-founder of the Alexandrian Tradition.

Today, she leads the Coven of the Stag King in London under the eldership – and discreet guidance- of Maxine.

Sharon is also the founder of Rose Ankh Publishing Ltd, a book publisher of unique occult, historical, philosophical, and biographical works (www.roseankhpublishing.com) as well as an online historical archive dedicated to the Alexandrian witchcraft tradition (www.alexandrianwitchcraft.org).
