The Magick of Aleister Crowley

An introductory class on Aleister Crowley and his magical system

Aleister Crowley holds a unique place in the history of Western magick. Although his name is well-known, his work has been frequently misinterpreted in the past. However in recent years he has begun to receive recognition as a seminal figure in the world of occultism, and his work and magick are being re-examined and welcomed by a new generation of esoteric scholars.

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)

This event will be held in our location in Dublin on Friday 26th June, 18.30-21.30. Please contact info@oto-ie.org for details.

Public Lecture & Workshop: Thelemic Boot Camp on April 4th

Robe of LightThelema means “Will” in Greek, and those who study it develop personal practice in order to manifest their Will in their daily lives. While this can take any form, there are certain rituals and instructions which are known to give measurable effect in a short time.

This “Boot Camp” consists of using the daily four-fold adoration of the Sun, known as Liber Resh, and a pentagram ritual to bring oneself into connection with the Will, known as Liber Reguli, or the Mark of the Beast Ritual. The set concludes with pranayama and mantrayoga, which help to still the mind and actualise goals.

The group will be led through a thorough explanation of these key practices, and then hold a group discussion on the development of a mantra for pursuit of one’s Will.

After a short break, the group will focus on the Mark of the Beast ritual, and take part together in an adapted form of this ritual.

Please contact us for more information.
