Lecture and Book Signing:
Aleister Crowley Demystified:
Light in the Darkness

In this entertaining presentation (suitable for beginners) Dr. Shoemaker will explore the root principles of Thelema, the mystical and magical system of Aleister Crowley. While sometimes appearing dark to the casual observer, Thelema will be revealed as a life-affirming path of freedom, power, wisdom and light, in harmony with other systems of personal and spiritual growth. Special reference will be made to the work of Carl Jung and Wilhelm Reich—two 20th century psychiatrists whose work parallels that of Crowley in many ways. A limited number of copies of the Soror Meral book will be available for sale and signing at the event.

Time: Monday, May 23, 7:30pm
Place: West Chester Wellness Center, 828 Paoli Pike, West Chester, PA.
Fee: $10
