Visions and Voices: Aleister Crowley's Aethyric Visions

In 1909, while crossing the Algerian desert, Aleister Crowley, along with his student, Victor Neuburg, obtained visions of the thirty Enochian aethyrs. It's during these scrying sessions that Crowley crossed the Abyss, faced the demon Choronzon, and achieved the grade of Master of the Temple. These visions were published in what is commonly referred to as The Vision and the Voice.

In this presentation we'll learn about the source of the Enochian aethyrs which stems from the work of the Elizabethan mage and Gnostic saint, Dr. John Dee. We'll also delve into some of the qabbalistic and astrological correspondences for a few of the visions. After the lecture, for those that Will it, we will perform a scrying of one of the aethyrs.

Note: When and where Abrahadabra may hold events outside of its dedicated space, no affliation between Abrahadabra Oasis and the event location or business is implied. While the membership may choose to gather at a public place, it does not infer affiliation of any sort, either between Abrahadabra Oasis and that place of business, or conversely.
