Project: Irish Order of Thelema Library
In Autumn 2014 one of the members donated a sizeable library to the Order with the purpose of establishing a cornerstone to a reference library and loan library for members. This collection includes work on the qabalah, ritual magick, paganisms, shamanism, Celtic studies, divination and more. Our goal is to put up book shelves, finish indexing and put in place a system for loans and reference for members of the Order. It will be housed in the Belfast temple/ community space.
Wednesday 11 May, 7.00 – 9.00pm / free

By 2016, Erica M Cornelius, PhD, had risen up to the grade of Adeptus Minor in Aleister Crowley’s A.’.A.’.. Her first task as an Outer Adept in Tiphereth-6 (תפארת) or the Sun was to learn that the light of her inner Star doesn’t always shine unhampered.
Her goal was to lift these clouds, these shadow-like miasma and phantoms she had created which controlled her ‘personality’ or ego as it relates to those spheres below her Star toward Malkuth-10 (מלכות). Like a scientist she began researching what was real and what was incorrect, vanquishing every aspect of false Knowledge that has hindered or would hinder her growth. She learned how to use a Bullshit Meter.
Her essay on the correct use of reason in magick weaves autobiography, history of new religious movements, Crowley scholarship, and magickal theory.
