About The Event
First Steps in Thelema
Evening Seminar-Workshop – Marco Visconti
Tonight introduces the foundation practices of Aleister Crowley’s magical system which a beginner can undertake at home. Marco Visconti, a Thelemite of over 20 years standing, looks at these exercises and short individual rites and will teach them in class, with with hands-on practice.
Many who have read about Crowley’s magick have told us they would welcome hands-on guidance on starting out in a practical sense. So in this workshop the key things involved in a home-based Thelemic life are covered in turn: from Liber Resh, a rite to welcome the sun, to Thelemic Yoga with particular attention to pranayama and asana, to the short Star Ruby and Liber Reguli rites, the Middle Pillar exercise, and the keeping of a magical diary. Absolutely no previous experience is expected. The evening workshop is both practical and theoretical, well structured and engaging.
Marco Visconti studied Religious Anthropology at Rome’s La Sapienza and Audio Engineering at Milan’s SAE, then worked 15 years as a touring musician, with bands such as XP8 and Faderhead. He’s been a Thelemite for 20 years, receiving initiation into the A∴A∴, Choronzon Club, and Ordo Templi Orientis: he is currently the driving force behind Ecclesia Gnostica Universalis in Anglia, a thelemic and gnostic church not tied to any particular Order or organisation, but wherein all Thelemites can work together. He also recently launched a Patreon offering one-on-one tuitions. A dynamic practitioner with a clear instruction style, he always sells out these engaging and fulfilling evenings. All welcome: no experience required.
