The Accommodation of Families and Inclusion of Children in the Broader Context of Thelema

The Accommodation of Families and Inclusion of Children in the Broader Context of Thelema

by James Gordon Frater Parrhesia recently wrote on "Our Sacred Duty: On The Accommodation Of Families And Inclusion Of Children In The O.T.O." I think this is a solid article and well worth reading. The list of points under "Children in the Order" bears strong consideration and presents some good ideas, and

Swami Vivekanandas Philosophy of Yoga and its prevalence in Crowleys Thelema

by Lani Milbus This piece is an excerpt from Lani Milbus' forthcoming book Effing the Ineffable. The kind of person who would open a book such as this, a seeker, is usually someone who has a question about the nature of existence. More specifically, we want to know; what is the

Aleister Crowley's New Aeon and Todays Aspirant

by Harmony Pax Crowley's New Aeon A few months ago, my friend and I decided to join a magical meetup. While discussing interesting topics, I noticed that some people there were talking about shedding the old aeon, which contained world prophets such as Krishna, Buddha, Jesus and Muhammad.

ON The Rights of Man, A Review

by Frater Αγάπη και Φως Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law. Part 1 – History and Background of Oz Liber Oz has been one of the most successful and perhaps misunderstood documents within the Thelemic corpus.

Thelema and Postmodernism: A Response

Thelema & Postmodernism

by Frater Enetelecheia Editor's note: This article is a response to this article by Sib. James Gordon which was itself a response to this original article by Brother Sol-Om-On. Good grief.

James Gordon I thought this article published by Brother Sol-Om-On on Thelemic Union was important enough to warrant a full review.  I don't usually speak critically of other people's writing, but this is very much the exemplar of a piece "full of sound and fury,. Signifying nothing."   In a

by Brother Sol-Om-On Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. Many people come to Thelema, drawn by the spiritual and intellectual freedom it promises. True, Thelema provides these freedoms if one has the grit (and the wit) to achieve them. However, the trend in the last few decades

The New Aeon Whore Being a Woman in Thelema

by Soror In Nomine Babalon Too long has woman's place in the world general, and in Thelema in particular, been defined by Man.  It is time for woman to define her own place in Thelema. Not through petty virtue signaling saying woman are inherently more virtuous or better than men somehow, nor by

From the Editors: With MARAH, we at Temple of Our Lady of the Abyss wanted to create a journal that was a little bit different. We wanted to create a space for artists and writers who are working practically with the divine feminine to share their work. We wanted to create
