About The Book

A guided initiation to becoming an adept in Vampyre energy magick

• Explains how a Vampyre is not a blood-sucking mythical figure but a shaman who is skilled in gathering, using, and storing energy for magical power and personal liberation

• Reveals how to gather and store energy from the world around you and shares magical techniques, manifestation methods, and practices to utilize the energy you have collected

• Looks at servitors and familiars, vampyric runes, dream architecture, money magick practices, and sex magick techniques as well as advanced practices such as healing with vampyric magick

In this initiatory guide, Don Webb explains how to learn from the myth of the vampire to gather, use, and store energy for magical power, manifestation, and personal liberation. A Master of the Order of the Vampyre within the Temple of Set, the author shares a 9-month process to awaken and initiate you as a Vampyre and allow you to actualize your hidden potential.

Webb begins by explaining how to gather energy from the world around you and store it in the body, in artifacts and talismans, and in groups of people, such as a coven. Through the 9 stages of initiation, the author offers guided magical techniques, manifestation methods, and experiments to utilize the energy you have learned to gather and store. He also examines familiars, Vampyric runes, money magick practices, and sex magic techniques. Sharing more advanced practices, Webb looks at the creation and destruction of egregores and how to fight off psychic vampires--those who steal your power and energies. Achieve greater self-knowledge, a deeper connection with the energies that surround you, and the power to manifest your deepest desires by walking the path of the Vampyre.



From “The Vampyric Explanation”

A Vampyre is a self-created energy being that is aware of the energy structures that maintain human life. The Vampyre seeks to obtain greater than normal energy, safe-guard the energy she has, and use her energy to increase her pleasure, power, wisdom, and most importantly change her relationship to time. To do this she changes her awareness of the world and how she interacts with the world using a variety to techniques from acting, tantra, neurobiology, magick, and hunting. The Vampyre awakens in the human body-mind-soul complex through an energy imbalance, a moment of awareness and a mythic model. The Vampyre’s enemies are not crosses, garlic or mirror. The Vampyre’s enemies are self-importance, conventionality, disease, pollution, fear, and dharma. The Vampyre is the mode of freedom in a world where everyone is in chains.

From “Vampyre Lite: Simple Practice”

This chapter will offer basic practices. Vampyre lite if you will. I’ll divide into daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly practices. If you like the results, you may wish to undergo Initiation. If it’s too hard or not to your liking, you’ve still got a scary book to impress your friends with.


This is for a basic day: no magical Workings planned, none of the experiments from parts two or three of the book in process. The cycle begins after sundown. You enter into sacred space preferably facing North. Incense or quiet music can be helpful. Dim or extinguish the lights. You close your eyes and make an energy inventory of the day. You think about your activities, your dreams, your interactions with people, and especially unexpected moments and opportunities. What fed you? Are you sick or well? What pleasures did you capture for yourself? What/who drained you? What energy did use? Now you will expel such energy as you deem harmful (more on that practice later). You then thoroughly relax, you let tensions leave your body section by section from your feet to your head.

When you feel your tensions relaxed, your breathing slow, your thoughts quiet, you rise and say your Wish for the next day, “I the Vampyre [your vampyre name] wish that . . .” The Wish can be anything you desire, stated as an accomplished fact. You then offer the orison of gratitude, “I thank myself, my ancestors, my teachers, my friends, and family for XXXX.” Think of all things you are grateful for, from seeing a peacock spread his tail unexpectedly to thinking good thoughts to your health, etc. End your orison with, “I will live long beyond this body, this time, this mood. I will hunt and play in the stars, I am attuned to forces dark, sublime, and eternal.” The “Gratitude Orison” is the most important act of the cycle. It records pleasant unexpected moments into your Past, as opposed to the loss of such memories. It creates happiness in your present, acts against the social parasite’s tendency to panic at night, and lastly sets up Resonance with your future self. If you live your life “right,” you will feel gratitude to your past self. In moments of resonance between ages Intuition occurs, and surpluses of energy store themselves across your long-being. Turn up the lights. Journal. At the minimum write down the best thing that happened to you that day (even if it was just finding a quarter in front of the vending machine), your best thought of the day, any magical results, and the phase of the moon.

Plan your next day. Include an item to think about (philosophically) and bodily pleasures. Pick activities that decondition the social parasite, such as resolving to spot a new thing on the way to work or putting your left sock on first. Such “silly” moments alongside the “important” ones weaken the social parasite’s grasp on behavior. Be mindful of practical needs and energy hunting. Many find it useful to write out the list, leave it in total darkness, then carry it with them the next day. Cross off items as you do so, and thank yourself for your achievements the next night.

At bedtime pause for a moment to drink cold clear water in front of mirror. Look at your reflection. Say “Tonight I feed and fly. Hail the ancient dreams!” This is the Vampyric Pledge.

As you fall asleep engage in one of two visualizations. Picture people you wish to influence. Imagine energy flowing from them into you and a (lesser but more magical) stream of energy flowing from your heart into them. Or choose the ascent visualization. Picture yourself rising from your bed and flying either to a Vampyric stead of power or away from earth toward the Big Dipper. Satellite pictures of your area will aid in this. Go to sleep. If you lie in bed reading, playing on the internet, etc., rise, shake that mood off before you Pledge and the visualizations.

When you awaken in the morning, try lying as still as possible and try to relive your dreams. If you dreamt of a specific location that you will visit today resolve to be very alert and in control in that place. After you rise and pick up your task list from last night say, “The Vampyre sleeps and I guard it. It can Awaken at will and moves with swiftness of the bat. In Its name I summon energy, wonder-giving experiences, and evolution provoking thoughts to my day self.”

Near mid-day, take a few minutes to review your list and your day so far. This is never an exercise in guilt. Guilt is how the social parasite feeds itself. You must wean it off guilt by giving it the better energies of Wonder and the glow of possessing a Secret (i.e., that you are a Vampyre). Take time to try the new when possible--new restaurant, new route, etc. Or rebel against minor rules or conventions occasionally. This releases energy and deconditions the social parasite.

Raves and Reviews

“A very dangerous book. Yes, some of the magical technologies in its pages could be used for malefic means by unscrupulous dabblers. But the real danger is in its power to revolutionize your understanding of reality. Highly recommended!”

–Michael M. Hughes, author of the bestselling book Magic for the Resistance

Energy Magick of the Vampyre is both a personal book about the dark mysteries as well as an excellent instructive description of the eroto-mysticism of Vampyric magic. It goes beyond what you’ve read before and puts Vampyric magic in its proper context. The book is written by one of the most experienced teachers of the Left-Hand Path and is a book that raises the pulse and brings to life what is hidden in the shadows.

–Thomas Karlsson, Ph.D., author of Nightside of the Runes

Energy Magick of the Vampyre is an entertaining introduction to the most fascinating and compelling aspects of antinomianism: the achievement of immortality. Complete with a side trip into the minds of Anton LaVey, Michael Aquino, William Burroughs, and others, this book details the most important influences and methods of the modern Left-Hand Path of Western magic and what they can do for you. It is as if the techniques of occultism, mass manipulation, and self-help were thrown together into a strangely appealing stew for those wishing to create their own egregore.”

–Mark Stavish, author of Egregores

“Don Webb’s latest work, Energy Magick of the Vampyre, expresses the masterful understanding that energy and Vampyrism are directly connected. The methodology of Vampyre magic within this book is centered in the practical, focused on consistent application and practice in the real world. I suggest this book to the beginner and adept alike as it balances the perspectives of the mindscape of a Vampyre in daily life. This is a must-have!”

–Michael W. Ford, author of Sekhem Apep: Typhonian Vampyre Magick

“There’s a reason why Don Webb is one of my favorite contemporary occult authors: everything he writes is enlightening in one way or another. A born storyteller if I’ve ever met one, he takes us on a barnstorming journey across the world of magic both archetypal and modern, pursuing the path of the Vampyre without all the biting and the garlic. An inventive, highly instructive, entertaining, and easy-to-follow manual of the Left-Hand Path for the 21st century like no other.”

–Frater U?D?, coauthor of Living Magic

Energy Magick of the Vampyre is all about that energy--and obtaining, keeping, and using it for one’s own best purposes. If the word ‘vampyre’ frightens you then this book is probably not for you--unless it scares you, you know, in a good way. Aha--I just conjured up some energy there, now didn’t I? Webb’s guide is an encyclopedic how-to that blasts most other ‘occult’ tomes out of the water. What this book can do for you is multifarious. It can help you define what a ‘Vampyre’ is, in case you know a few; it can help you see where this form of magick can be possible and beneficial in your life; and it can begin your journey on a path. It is not the end-all, be-all of attaining the rank of energy Vampyre, but it is, I believe, one’s best starting place. Read the book.”

–Rt. Rev. Denise Dumars, M.A., Heirophant of the Lyceum of Auset Hauhet

"This book is more about energy than just Vampyres. How to enhance energy, amplify it, shape it and transform it. What is great about this book is the positive and empowering spin on self improvement. Anyone can learn a great deal and further their own Xeper / Zhep'r with this book. I love the spelling of Vampyre with a Y in the title, as this is something I have been doing since 1994 to determine the difference between fiction (vampire) and practice / lifestyle / path (Vampyre). What I can say is that this book is perfectly compatible with the perspectives of the Ordo Strigoi Vii and the Black Veils Vampyre traditions. I encourage my students and followers, plus all who want a better VC to read this book to test and experiment with its teachings. Do I see a trend of a mysterious, empowered and energy amplified Vampyre Current & Culture rising after the pandemic? I firmly think so and this book is a great contribution to this vision. Don's writings in this book contribute another fresh and insightful reinforcement to the Vampyre Current while revealing the origins of the word VAMPYRE with a Y in esoteric use. Hail Elorath ~ Xeper ~ Zhep'r."
