A Short Course in Scrying
copyright 1997, 1998
This paper was written in response to requests by participants of the
“enochian-l” and “Praxis” internet discussion groups; it first appeared as a series of
posts on those groups in early 1997. The current version has been slightly rewritten
to enhance the clarity of the presentation, and to include a small amount of additional
The techniques described herein are adaptations of techniques I learned from
two sources. The first of these is Mr. Brian D., who taught me the basic method

back to a lower level in the next session. When an improvement lasts for a week or

Before getting to skrying techniques as such, I want to discuss t
