Rendering Unconscious welcomes Steve Dee to the podcast!

Steve Dee is a Systemic Psychotherapist working in the NHS within the field of mental health social work. He is the author of A Gnostic’s Progress: Magic and the Path of Awakening and The Heretic’s Journey: Spiritual Freethinking for Difficult Times. He is also the co-author (with Julian Vayne) of the book Chaos Craft. After a near miss with the Anglican Priesthood, he focused his energies on more occult pursuits that have included work within the east/west tantra group AMOOKOS and the Chaos Magic current. His current interest in Gnosticism represents an attempt to explore the way in which joys of heretical freethinking can be harnessed for the benefit of all. 

He currently blogs over at where he reviewed Scansion in Psychoanalysis and Art: the Cut in Creation (Routledge 2020).
