Need a little extra special magic for a romantic Valentine's Day? A new fashion art T-shirt may seem like it is coming out of left field but, coming from a magical icon, it is really only coming from a left hand path.
Zeena Schreck, the daughter of Church of Satan founder Anton LaVey, who she renounced, announced that she will launch the new "Zeena: High Priestess Of Seth" fashion-art t-shirt at the LA Art Book Fair, which runs from February 11 through 14, 2016.
The launch is being presented by Heinzfeller Nileisist, the same artist who presented "The Zaum of Zeena: A Collection of Interviews, Essays, Quotes and Images" at last year's NY Art Book Fair.
The special T-shirt was esigned by Frank Haines in cooperation with Zeena as a companion piece to The Zaum of Zeena art-zine.
Launched in time for Valentine's Day and Lupercalia, this garment is no ordinary t-shirt. It is a "magical talisman combining all the symbolism necessary to foster blissful union of the initiate's inner male-female erotic-war deity energies represented by Seth and His secret consort Inanna and presided over by their High Priestess in this era, Zeena," according to Zeena's website.
"The human mind is always at war with itself because the inner masculine-feminine polarities are not united but divided. As a result, the inner conflicts translate to outer destructive behavior and actions.
"Donning this article of clothing should be regarded as a ritual homage to the wearer's yet-to-be indestructible, non-dual state of perfect peace and spiritual completion (Š-L-M ). A reminder that Liberation and Enlightenment comes when opposing forces become one.
"For those not well versed in tantric practices, Gnosticism, ancient mythology and Magical Theurgy, it's also just a damn cool design to have in your collection."
Zeena also announced she will be doing a live performance of ritual sound art at Kantine am Berghain Berlin on Feb 28, 2016. Zeena was asked to perform by King Dude and Greyzone Concerts & Promotion.
"Actually this happened on special request from the main act that night, King Dude," said Sabrina Debora Boller of GreyZone Concerts & Promotion told KpopStarz exclusively.
"I think Zeena as a person stands for many things, for spiritual enlightenment as well as for a strong cultural background. We are very honored that she will be performing.
Zeena is the Hemet-neter Tepi Seth of the Sethian Liberation Movement. She is possibly the most powerful and renowned magical practitioner alive today. Her tone art is inspired by her experience within the "esoteric, shamanistic and magical traditions of which she's practiced and taught," reads a statement on her website.
"Her soundscapes and chanted incantations unlock inner gateways to the deepest dimensions of spiritual awakening. The positive effects of which are often reported by audience participants as occurring in dreams, synchronicities and other-worldly, supernatural experiences in the hours and days following her performances. As an initiated tantric yogini and magician, all of her creative work, including her sonic performances, graphic artwork and writings, can be understood as catalysts to awakening the pure awareness (Buddha-mind) inherent within all beings."
Zeena Schreck is a Berlin-based interdisciplinary artist and counter-culture icon known through her work as photographer, graphic artist, musician/composer, writer, animal rights activist, magician and mystic.
Zeena has practiced and taught magic and meditation for over 30 years. She was exposed to magic and sorcery since her childhood. Zeena was three years old when she rose to national prominence when she had the first public Satanic baptism in history on May 23, 1967. The ceremony, and the accompanying reenactment of the Satanic Mass ceremony brought on worldwide publicity and controversy.
Between 1988-1993 Zeena was composer, vocalist, musician and graphic designer for the sonic magical musical project Radio Werewolf. Her solo music projects are comprised of ambient, meditative and trance soundscapes with ritual chanting and invocation.
Zeena was the High Priestess of the Church of Satan and the Temple of Set and was the Female Alpha of The Werewolf Order. She held the highest possible leadership positions in three of the most notorious occult orders of modern times, an unprecedented status that has never been matched by another occult figure.
Zeena rejected western occultism, renouncing all ties to the Church of Satan and her father in 1990. Zeena converted to Tibetan Tantric Buddhism in the Drikung, Karma Kagyu and Nyingma lineages. She focused on the mystical practices of Gnostic Sethianism and the original eastern left-hald pat of Vedic Tantra (Shaktism) and Buddhist Tantra (Tibetan Buddhism. She is an initiated Tantric Buddhist in the lineages of Nyingma, Karma Kagyu and Drikung Kagyu.
