Paul Hughes-Barlow is the worlds leading authority on Crowley’s Thoth Tarot, Paul has appeared several times at the festival to explain the elemental dignity system and the true use of magical Tarot. Paul was trained in Tarot on Brighton seafront by a man named Punditt Maharaj. Years later realised that his teacher
had in fact been a Secret Sufi and Paul had been learning about the Jinn, magic, Sufism and through bacchanalian experiences & spiritual empowerment of Baraka through qawali music.

Paul certainly took Tarot to new dimensions through his book ‘Tarot and The Magus’ talking the cards away from mere fortune telling back to their magical roots once more .
