Red Flame is making available artwork by Soror Meral…
One of the most remarkable women in the history of Thelema is Phyllis Seckler, also known as Soror Meral. She took Minerval Degree into Aleister Crowley’s Ordo Templi Orientis at Agape Lodge back on August 26th in 1939. By the late-sixties Crowley’s organization seemed destined for obscurity but, out of the ashes, arose Phyllis Seckler and Grady McMurtry. Together, these two people became the primary figures responsible for bringing the Order from its near death to the world wide organization that it is today. It is safe to say that without Soror Meral the OTO would probably have died. For this we all owe her our deepest gratitude. In 1979 Soror Meral was Chartered to run her own OTO Lodge, known as 418 Lodge, and she has remained in charge of it ever since. Besides founding the well-known College of Thelema, as well as the Temple of Thelema, she was editor and publisher of the serial magazine known as In The Continuum. Soror Meral has spent a lifetime in the service of both the AA and OTO – bringing the knowledge of the Thelema to the forefront of occult studies.
Her art work has graced the walls of 418 Lodge for decades and we are proud to offer high quality reproductions on heavy poster stock of two of her paintings which form part of her “Temple Art” series.
“The forces of kundalini rise up through the spinal section – Ida & Pingala, negative & positive are on either side of the Sushumna, the central channel, and these are in the center of the tree. On either side there is a perfect balance between male & female, Sun & Moon.” – P.Seckler
“Everyone faces difficulties in their life. The butterfly is a symbol of the soul and it leads the person to the end of the tunnel where is the light of spiritual growth.” – P.Seckler
