This essay explores Ego Magic techniques within the context of agroup. Originally conceived as part of a series of technical papersfor IOT UK, I am now making this information available for anyonewho cares to peruse it, as part of an ongoing series of releases relatedto magical group work in general. Feedback & comments arewelcomed, and should there be enough demand for more informationon this subject, I might even get around to writing them.
