Struggling with life? Not struggling with life, but curious about exploring something different? Struggling with depression, anxiety, addiction, abuse, stress? Curious about exploring life with a different perspective, or to better yourself? With no catches, no charges, you can start the Love Chaos Dialogues by communicating with the creator of Love Chaos, Derek Hunter via Facebook or Twitter (search for Derek Hunter in both places) or by e-mail: DH.LoveChaos@gmail.com [ Note - Love Chaos is not meant to replace professional help. Whether it be seeing a therapist, a doctor, going to treatment centers, Love Chaos is only in addition to those fields of expertise.]
Derek Hunter was recently interviewed by Keats Ross from the We the Hallowed podcast Pragmagick in Portland, Oregon. The interview is an excellent introduction into the life and work of Hunter, especially into Love Chaos. Click HERE for the interview.
A little bit about Love Chaos and Derek Hunter -
It must be made clear at the outset that Love Chaos is NOT a dogmatic religion and philosophy. It is exactly the opposite. Hunter is an Agnostic, someone who embraces Doubt, not simply about the existence of God, but about everything. Hunter believes the embrace of doubt is the beginning of wisdom. But Hunter also acknowledges that others have the right to their own views, thus why Love Chaos is an INCLUSIVE religion, philosophy, way of life. One can be a believer, in Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, any form of Paganism, Atheism, Agnosticism (of course), more Esoteric belief systems (Occult practitioners and other practices), and be a follower of the path of Love Chaos. All are welcome, as long as you are inclusive of others as well.
All that is required is that you have Love Chaos as a Guiding Principle in your life. This means seeing that the universe, existence as we know it (or do not know it), is essentially chaotic in nature, unpredictable, and to focus on Love within that chaotic framework. That is the only requirement, but that is also only the beginning if one wishes to go deeper down the path. To go deeper requires personal development and self-work, understanding yourself psychologically, emotionally, by yourself and with others. To go deeper requires you to penetrate the mysterious and the practice of Magick.
In the future there will be Love Chaos peer to peer support groups, where people can gather together to help each other, both in person and on-line. These groups will be for people struggling with a variety of issues, from addiction to substances or behaviors, struggling with depression or anxiety or abuse from others or codependency, and also for people who are not struggling with issues at all but would simply like to better themselves. There is also a forthcoming book going into more detail on Love Chaos, coming out in 2019 or 2020.
For now there is the original book of Love Chaos, written in 2014, with 45 Chapters/Insights, concise understandings and perceptions of reality that is a starting point for the follower of Love Chaos, accompanied by visual imagery to help the reader change their perception.

Finally also for now and will be in the future, the prime importance of the Love Chaos Dialogues, which can begin with your reaching out to Hunter, or by your decision to have Love Chaos as a Guiding Principle in your life and to communicate with others who have Love Chaos as a Guiding Principle in their life.
Below is the Introduction to the book, Love Chaos, the "Holy Bible" of this new religion, philosophy, way of life:
Why start a new religion? Why a new philosophy? Why a new way of life? How can I presume to think whatever I have to say is worth anyone’s time, let alone important enough to begin a new belief system? Aren’t there too many religions out there already? Aren’t all religions essentially dying anyway? Why even bother with coming up with something new? How can I presume to think Love Chaos is even new at all? Does the world really need a new religion, a new philosophy, a new way of life? Isn’t humanity finally at the point where we can start to live life without belief systems? And anyhow, what is Love Chaos?
I hope to answer these questions and more within this book. Consider this book the Holy Bible of Love Chaos. If you have purchased this book you are now a member of Love Chaos. You are now a practicing Love Chaos Individual. It’s up to you whether you wish to continue this path. But by reading this book you’ve taken the first few steps. After reading this book more steps will follow.
These steps will not be in the form of attending services every Sunday. It will not be in the form of paying annual dues. It will not be in the form of making secret oaths which you will be held to for the rest of your life. The only obligation is the living out of Love Chaos in your life, which has started with reading this book.
At this point Love Chaos is simply run and coordinated and organized by me, Derek Hunter. I founded Love Chaos in 2014 but it is something I have been working on for my entire life, especially since my teens. At the time of the publication of this book I am 36 years old so basically for the last 20 (or 36) years I’ve been both consciously and subconsciously preparing for this book and this new philosophy.
A few notes on the set-up/interior design/”look” of this book. Each chapter is simply one page. Facing each chapter’s page is a color: black, red, or white. There is a significance of why one color is facing each specific chapter/page, but not to be explained, at least not within this book.
What is important for the reader to know about the colors is the immediate subconscious effect the color has on the reader once seen. One thing should be clear is that traditional perspectives on these colors should NOT be taken into account, at least not as the main way to interpret them. Therefore, black does not necessarily equal “evil,” white “good,” nor red “love” or “hate.” The reader should simply allow the subconscious to respond without preconceived notions.
The chapters are also referred to as “Eyes” or “Insights” and thus why an Eye is placed at the top of each Chapter/Eye/Insight’s page. Each chapter is meant to provide an insight into life. The symbol of the Eye is very important in the philosophy of Love Chaos. Perception is Key.
