about the author

I, Andrey Anatolyevich Balaban, graced this world on January 18, 1979, amidst the vibrant streets of Odessa in the Ukrainian SSR. The dawn of Ukraine’s independence in 1991 marked a defining moment in my journey, shaping my path toward exploration and discovery.

My academic odyssey commenced at Secondary School No. 68, where I laid the groundwork for my future endeavors. Concurrently, my fascination with the occult arts took root, leading me on a profound quest for knowledge and enlightenment.

In 1994, fueled by curiosity and determination, I embarked on a course of study in Laboratory Diagnostics at a medical college. Amidst the rigors of academia, my passion for the esoteric flourished, culminating in the adoption of the mystical moniker Amanar and a deeply personal journey of self-initiation.

The late ’90s saw me immersed in the mysteries of white and black magic, while simultaneously delving into the profound teachings of Kabbalah. Graduating with honors as a medical laboratory technician in 1997, I embarked on a voyage into the realm of practical magic, casting spells and peering into the tapestry of fate.

With the dawn of the new millennium, I penned my inaugural tome, «Advanced Ceremonial Black Magic in Theory and Practice,» a testament to my dedication and expertise. Founding the «Red Dragon» occult community in Odessa in 2003, I nurtured a sanctuary for seekers of arcane wisdom to explore the depths of their craft.

Venturing beyond Ukraine’s borders, I made waves on the Ukrainian reality show «Battle of Psychics» in 2010 before making Kiev my home. Over the years, my literary pursuits flourished, resonating with seekers of esoteric knowledge worldwide.

From documentaries to reality television, my expertise in the occult garnered attention far and wide, cementing my status as a luminary in the field. As my academic horizons expanded, I earned a master’s degree in psychology, further enriching my understanding of the human psyche.

Having traversed continents and delved into diverse cultures, I draw inspiration from every corner of the globe. From the bustling streets of Mexico to the tranquil shores of Thailand, I’ve embraced the richness of global diversity.

As I continue to chart new territory in the realm of esoteric psychology, I remain dedicated to fostering collaboration and camaraderie among fellow practitioners. From the establishment of «Magical Rammstein» in Rome to the vision of a united front through the «Organization of United Magicians,» my endeavors seek to transcend boundaries and forge connections in the ever-evolving landscape of magic.

Embracing the digital age, I maintain a vibrant presence on social media platforms, offering insights and engaging with a global community of seekers. As I craft the pages of «Practical Esoteric Psychology,» I invite you to join me on a journey of discovery, where the mysteries of the universe await those with the courage to seek them out.
