Omphalos Magick Moot presents a talk by Geraldine Beskin:
Sunday 9th August 2009, Bath UK
When Aleister Crowley and his sprawling family were magically directed to Sicily the 1920’s, they were at interesting stages in their lives.
One person came, was enlightened and was never the same again. His doggedness and his ‘ordinariness’ make him superficially an unlikely person to ‘get’ Crowley’s teachings but Frank Bennett was that person.
He left his family to seek Crowley and left his Magical Diary as a testament to daily life with The Beast and his entourage. First-hand accounts are reasonably rare and Bennett was no spiritual tourist. He was desperately seeking something – and he found it.
Geraldine Beskin has had an embarrassingly long interest in Aleister Crowley and Austin Osman Spare. Her ownership of The Atlantis Bookshop has enabled her to sell, discuss and publish works to do with these two marvelous magicians.
Date: Sunday 9th August
Venue: Upstairs room at The Huntsman pub, 1 Terrace Walk, North Parade, Bath
Time: 2pm for a 2.30pm start
Cost: £5.00 on the door
The Omphalos Magick Moot will continue after the talk, with an opportunity for talking stick discussion. Regular Omphalos meetings are on the second Sunday of each month, at our new home, upstairs at the Huntsman.
