Antecedents of Thelema - CANCELED

Thelema, the Greek word meaning Will, is closely tied to Aleister Crowley. However, parts of the philosophy of Thelema existed in places such as the writings of Saint Augustine and Rabelais long before Crowley fully formalized and established the philosophy of Thelemic religion. During this presentation, we'll take a look at some of the writings that first use terms such as "Do what thou wilt" and the inspiration for the Abbey of Thelema that Crowley attempted to establish in Italy.

Due to weather-related travel delays, our presenter is unable to give this lecture. Look for it to be rescheduled soon!

Meditation Night: Raja Yoga

Raja yoga is a system of meditation that aims to still the mind so that the inner light or divinity may be experienced. It is a particularly useful system for magicians when practiced regularly, as over time it can aid in understanding and strengthening one's will. We will spend some time reviewing the basic concepts in the raja yoga system in a Thelemic context, and then move to the temple space where we will engage in this ancient and effective practice as a group.

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.
