Crowley’s Amalantrah Working
7.15 for 7.30 pm start
By Michael Staley, Typhonian OTO
Early in 1918, whilst in New York, Aleister Crowley received a communication – via Roddie Minor, his Scarlet Woman of the time – from an entity calling itself ‘Amalantrah’. Seances followed, where Crowley with a small group re-contacted Amalantrah, usually questioning him about his affairs of the coming week. The answers were often obscure, couched in Tarot cards, gematria, geomantic symbols, Yi King hexagrams, and the like.
Seances continued until June that year, then Crowley continued communications with Amalantrah during his magical retirement on Aesopus Island, along the Hudson River. Crowley considered these contacts as a continuation of the Abuldiz working, later concluding both were initiated by Aiwass. Fom some of the seances arose Crowley’s drawing of Lam; during the later magical retirement he explored past lives, and invoked Amalantrah to help him with his reworking of Legge’s translation of the Yi King. This evening, Michael Staley will analyse the working and discuss its value for those working magically almost seventy years later. Michael Staley is a prominent member of the Typhonian O.T.O., edits the well-respected journal ‘Starfire’, and is a founder of Starfire Publishing Ltd.
