Friday Night Magick: Deities of Thelema

steleThe Book Of The Law, the revolutionary text central to the magical life and work of Aleister Crowley, and at the core of the radical world-view of Thelema, was received on three consecutive days from the 8th of April 1904.

On the anniversary of this event, Cúchulainn Oasis will present an approachable and accessible discussion exploring the core concepts and principals at the heart of this work, including the pantheon and cosmology of Thelema.

This event will conclude with practical instruction in, and an interactive group performance of, the ritual of Liber V vel Reguli, a powerful invocation of forces of the New Aeon, and the means by which the individual may personally utilise the potencies central to the current of Thelema.

This event will be held at our Dublin location and open to OTO members and invited guests, contact us for more information.

The Magick of Aleister Crowley

An introductory class on Aleister Crowley and his magical system

This class will provide an overview of Crowley’s magical system of Thelema and act an an introduction to a forthcoming monthly series.

A donation of €5 is suggested to help the work of OTO. (Free to OTO members)
