Dinner meeting in Manhattan (NYC Satanists, Luciferians, LHPers, etc.)

  • September 6, 2012 · 7:15 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

No announced topic.  We'll discuss whatever topics (relevant to Satanism, Luciferianism, etc.) that people at the meeting want to discuss.

This meeting is our regular monthly dinner gathering in Manhattan, for Satanists, Luciferians, "Dark" Pagans, and "Left Hand Path" occultists of all law-abiding kinds, plus open-minded people interested in learning about the many forms of Satanism, Luciferianism, "Dark" Paganism, and LHP occultism. (The organizer is a non-LaVeyan theistic Satanist.)

Please plan to arrive before 7:30 PM.  The meeting will have the following format:

  • 7:15 to 7:30: Informal socializing.
  • 7:30 to 7:40: Order food.
  • 7:40 to 8:05: Introductions. Tell us a little about your own perspective on Satanism, Luciferianism, "Dark" Paganism, or "Left-Hand-Path" occultism.
  • 8:05 to 8:15: Break.
  • 8:15 to 9:15: Discussion of topics raised by attendees.
  • 9:15 to 9:25: Break.
  • 9:25 to 10:00: Announcements, discussion of our group's possible future plans, and miscellaneous.
  • 10:00 to 10:15 or later: Informal socializing.

We meet at a diner on West 23rd Street in Manhattan. (The exact address, and other details, will be visible to you once you join this Meetup group.) The nearest subway stop is 23rd Street on the A, C, and E lines (8th Avenue).

We'll be at a table in the BACK part of the diner. Please ask a waiter about "Diane Vera's meetup." At least one or two of us, though probably not most of us, will be wearing black shirts and/or point-down pentagram pendants of some kind. (If you arrive early and are the first to arrive, please have a seat in the BACK part of the diner and let the waiter know that you are here for "Diane Vera's meetup.")

Newcomers are welcome. Diane Vera, the organizer, will make a point of welcoming all who arrive and encouraging all attendees to tell the rest of us a bit about themselves and their beliefs, to facilitate conversation. Although our meetings are informal, we do aim to have substantive conversation about our beliefs and practices, rather than just random chit chat.

Please plan to spend a minimum of $5 (per person) for food and/or drinks, so that the diner where we meet will continue to welcome our business.

We need you to RSVP here on the Meetup site, so we can know how big a table to ask for. Please RSVP as soon as you can. The more people RSVP early, the bigger and better our meetings will be, because a reasonably large number of early RSVP's will let other visitors to this site know that we are indeed a live group where they will actually meet some people.

Diane Vera, the organizer of this Meetup Group, is also the founder of the local NYC proto-congregation of the Church of Azazel. However, the NYC Satanists discussion group welcomes Satanists, Luciferians, Dark Pagans, and LHP occultists of all law-abiding kinds, not just prospective Church of Azazel members.)

Diane Vera, the organizer, is a non-LaVeyan theistic Satanist. She maintains a website on theistic Satanism, including the page Attention, New Yorkers! (for theistic Satanists in and near New York City).

    Mostly men attended. I wanted to hear more from women and their spirituality as it relates to this group. At times, the meeting felt like an “alpha male” battle. The discussion largely revolved around black magic, and more specifically, what is magic? This definition was defined operationally by personal experiences with magic (“How do you change the world around you to manifest your will?”). I wrote down plenty of sources and texts that I’ll enjoy reading about later. When on topic, the conversations were an eye opener.

    One thing I struggled with as I listened to people’s perspectives was the bias towards being controversial. It was almost like a challenge to show how “liberated” one is from conventional thinking – praises about Adolf Hitler being brilliant, Manson viewed as a philosopher, attacks on the societal obligation care for the weak among us. Shock value aside, when you hear things like this, they make you ask, “What’s truly going on here?”

    There was an interesting array of views in which I believe much was gleaned by all who attended.

    Hey, "Lady Di" I think we should try to discuss "Satanic Black Magic Practices and Ritual Realization of the Practice Results." What do you think? I've had much success with Black Magic and I'd love to hear what others utilize in making the "Definition of Magic" (The changing of the environment by way of the will and the use of ritual) come true.

    Start with the definition of MAGIC. "Magic is one's ability to change the environment trough it's use by way of his/her will and ritual combined."
