A Thelemic Rite: Star Ruby (Liber XXV)

A Thelemic Rite: Star Ruby (Liber XXV)

Evening Mini-Workshop – Marco Visconti

This Thelemic ritual was created by Aleister Crowley in 1913, who describes it as a ‘new and more elaborate version of the Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram.’ He included it in the magical regimen of the A∴A∴ . It attunes the magician to the energies of the aeon,working both as a banishing and proper invocation of those forces. Tonight teaches how to do the rite along with its inner visualisations, with plenty of hands-on practice.

A Thelemic Rite: Liber Reguli

A Thelemic Rite: Liber Reguli (Liber V)

Evening Mini-Workshop – Luke Fleming

Liber V vel Reguli: “Being the Ritual of the Mark of the Beast: an incantation proper to invoke the Energies of the Aeon of Horus, adapted for the daily use of the Magician of whatever grade.”

This workshop will introduce Liber V vel Reguli, a classic rite of Thelema. Luke Fleming will open the evening by placing it in historical context as well as comparing and contrasting it with other pentagram rituals. You will see the ritual performed by an experienced practitioner, before then going on to learn it together step-by-step. Along the way you may ask questions  and receive tips and insights into various aspects of its practice. Given that Crowley specifically states that this ritual is “for the daily use of the Magician of whatever grade”, a thorough grounding in its fundamentals is indispensable to any Thelemic practitioner.  Study and practice of this ritual are widely considered to have rich reward, according  the practitioner  insights into the Thelemic pantheon, into subtle physiology and into their path towards finding their True Will.  All are welcome and no previous experience is expected.

Luke has been an initiate of the O.T.O. in London for almost ten years, a past officer of AMeTh Lodge and is a recognised Priest in the Ecclesia Gnostica Catholica.
