Rede of the Wiccae

Being known as the counsel of the Wise Ones:

Bide the Wiccan Laws ye must In Perfect Love and Perfect Trust.
Live an’ let live - Fairly take an’ fairly give.
Cast the Circle thrice about To keep all evil spirits out.
To bind the spell every time - Let the spell be spake in rhyme.
Soft of eye an’ light of touch - Speak little, listen much.
Deosil go by the waxing Moon - Sing and dance the Wiccan rune.
Widdershins go when the Moon doth wane, An’ the Werewolf howls by the dread Wolfsbane.
When the Lady’s Moon is new, Kiss thy hand to Her times two.
When the Moon rides at Her peak Then your heart’s desire seek.
Heed the Northwind’s mighty gale - Lock the door and drop the sail.
When the wind comes from the South, Love will kiss thee on the mouth.
When the wind blows from the East, Expect the new and set the feast.
When the West wind blows o’er thee, Departed spirits restless be.
Nine woods in the Cauldron go - Burn them quick an’ burn them slow.
Elder be ye Lady’s tree - Burn it not or cursed ye’ll be.
When the Wheel begins to turn - Let the Beltane fires burn.
When the Wheel has turned a Yule, Light the Log an’ let Pan rule.
Heed ye flower bush an’ tree - By the Lady Blessèd Be.
Where the rippling waters go Cast a stone an’ truth ye’ll know.
When ye have need, Hearken not to others greed.
With the fool no season spend Or be counted as his friend.
Merry meet an’ merry part - Bright the cheeks an’ warm the heart.
Mind the Threefold Law ye should - Three times bad an’ three times good.
When misfortune is enow, Wear the Blue Star on thy brow.
True in love ever be Unless thy lover’s false to thee.
Eight words ye Wiccan Rede fulfill - An’ it harm none, Do what ye will.

The Thelemic Mass is a ritual by the Temple of Thelema based on Crowley's Ecclesia Gnostica Catholica Canon Missae. We have updated it by including a list of FEMALE saints, for gender equality. We are asking for donations to be able to perform this as part of the Occult conference in Salem, MA September 28th. Any money raised over the amount we need will go toward performing it in New York City and elsewhere.

New York City
Sept. 22nd. 2013 from 5:30 - 8:00 pm
Altered Stages 212 W 29th St. 3rd Floor

Pearls of Wisdom: Gems From the Journal Black Pearl by James A. Jim Eshelman"A Black Pearl of Infinite Preciousness"

James A. Eshelman has been a writer and teacher of metaphysical subjects for over 40 years. He is the Chancellor of the College of Thelema and the Prolocutor General of the Temple of Thelema.

"Seek the New in the Old ~ Seek the Old in the New." That was the motto ofBlack Pearl, College of Thelema's biannual journal published 1997-2002. Author James A. Eshelman contributed 100 articles during one of the most prolific periods of his career. This anthology gathers over 40 essays, many of them substantially updated and expanded, and some of them never previously published.
Pearls of Wisdom "seeks the new in the old" through a magnificent cache of wisdom teachings from one of Thelema's most insightful, creative teachers.
This is the "director's cut" of Black Pearl and more!
An Introduction to Thelema the ground shifting world-view of Aleister Crowley explains Thelema's core principles of Will, Love, and Star, then expands on the nature of True Will and Love Under Will; Thelema's pantheon of gods; and theNew Era of Aspiration now opening before us. The rest of the book is organized in 7 parts:
It's in the Basics + Magick + Qabalah + Thelema
Sexual Mysteries + Holy Guardian Angel + The Path

For example, one section ("Magick") explores a dozen topics of ceremonial magick, including traditional and newer forms of the pentagram and hexagram rituals, Sun adorations, new adaptations of classic initiation rites, the ancient art of evocation, and a new ritual for becoming a purer reflection of your deepest spiritual ideal. Chapter 32, The Magical Record of Brother Proserpinus, is a modern tale of a brother of A.'.A.'. who undertook the Great Work and succeeded. Four times the size of excerpts published in Black Pearl, this is the centerpiece of the book.

$8 admission, or free admission with purchase of book.

Aleister Crowley, Bisexuality, and Thelema 

Aleister Crowley was an influential occultist, astrologer, mystic and ceremonial magician, responsible for founding the religious philosophy of Thelema. He was also successful in various other fields, including mountaineering, chess and poetry.

Crowley was also bisexual, a recreational drug experimenter and a social critic. In many of these roles he was in revolt against the moral and religious values of his time. Because of this, he gained widespread notoriety during his lifetime, and was denounced in the popular press of the day as "the wickedest man in the world." But his contributions to the world were far deeper and more genuine than this myth portrays.

Thelema, the philosophy developed by Crowley, is a path toward discovering one’s true Will, or purpose in life. Sex is an important tool that opens different aspects of our personality, including the spiritual. We will also talk about Aleister Crowley’s constant exploration of all things possible in the sexual and the spiritual. Crowley had numerous lovers, both male and female; some of whom he collaborated with magically, such as his long-lasting relationship with Victor Neuburg.
