Spring 2020 gatherings cancelled

OTO US Grand Lodge - Tue, 03/03/2020 - 20:23

Out of an abundance of caution regarding the developing COVID-19 situation, U.S. Grand Lodge has decided to cancel its scheduled national gatherings this spring, specifically Advanced Initiator Training, Kaaba Colloquium, and the Electoral College meeting. The Electoral College meeting will be held online according to standard Electoral College procedures.

For more information regarding COVID-19, please refer to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website (cdc.gov/nCoV).

U.S. Grand Lodge also recommends that local bodies monitor their local situations, and cancel local gatherings if appropriate, e.g., if schools close in their area or official advisories are issued.

U.S. Grand Lodge will continue to monitor the national situation, and will reschedule the canceled events when it is prudent to do so.

Thelema Now! Guest: Peter Mark Adams (2020)

Thelema NOW! - Fri, 17/01/2020 - 22:45

Back again! Harper Fiest talks to Peter Mark Adams.  He previous book was "The Game of Saturn" and he just published "Mystai - dancing out the mysteries of dionysos." The Dionysian themed frescos of Pompeii’s Villa of the Mysteries constitute the single most important theurgical narrative to have survived in the Western esoteric tradition. No other practitioner account of the ritual process for conducting a mystery rite has survived down to today. The frescoes’ vivid and allusive imagery illuminates both the ritual activity of the participants as well as its esoteric import.

A Thelema Now favorite is back!  Author and lecturer Richard Kaczynski talks about the newly revised and re-released "Panic In Detroit." At 400 pages, this release is significantly expanded from the original 2006 limited edition. It includes original essays on the time of Aleister Crowley, Charles Stansfeld Jones, Wilfred Talbot Smith, Cecil Frederick Russell, and Dr. J. P. Kowal in Detroit; the newspaper accounts that followed in their wake; and the legacy of the lost crate of rare Crowley books. In addition, Panic in Detroit reproduces 40 letters between Crowley and his circle; 55 newspaper articles documenting the “mess in the press”; selected transcripts from the Universal Book Stores’ bankruptcy hearings, in which Crowley, O.T.O. and The Equinox figure prominently; and much more. 

You can buy it on Amazon and booksellers everywhere!
