Shea Bilé

San Francisco, California
Shea Bilé is a performance poet, author, musician, occult lecturer, and podcast host. A devoted occultist for over 20 years, his committed adherence to subversive forms of spiritual expression have served as a vital foundation for his work. He has conducted lectures and workshops throughout the United States, primarily on subjects related to the occult and religious heterodoxy. He is the host of the Deferred Gnosis Podcast, a show primarily focused on investigating and exploring contemporary and fringe philosophical, spiritual, and religious subjects. As a ritual performance artist, he blends various forms of esoteric practice with transgressive ritual expression. He has authored a book of poetry, and his writings have appeared in numerous publications. His more notable musical artistic effort is delivered through his most recent album, “Tzimtzum," which combines spoken word lyricism with neoclassical instrumentation. He has been a guest on a variety of podcasts and has been the subject of various articles and documentaries, many of which relate to his life, his art, and his expertise and experience in the realm of the occult and alternative spirituality. Recent profile pieces of which Shea Bilé has been the subject have appeared in Vice, and the documentary series, 60 Second Docs. He is also the co-founder of the Occult Student Alliance, an esoteric organization at San Francisco State University created to provide an empowering and sympathetic community for those who feel called to a path outside of conventional spirituality.

Shea Bilé holds B.A. degrees in both Philosophy and Religious Studies. He currently resides in San Francisco, CA.
