Berlin, Germany

16th-18th November 2018 e.v.

Occulture is a blending of the words "occult" and "culture" popularized by Christopher Partridge - a fusion which signifies the ethereal influence they exert between each other.

The occult deeply influences our culture, but how does culture influence the occult? What of the sub-cultures moving under the surface, the citizens of the esoteric circles of our world?

Join us 16-18 November, 2018 e.v. in Berlin to explore the hidden world beneath and between us through lectures, workshops, rituals, virtual reality experiences, divination, performances, music and exhibitions of occult art.

Join your will with ours this November in Berlin.

Baptism of Wisdom - on Aleister Crowley's Gnostic Mass

Speaker: William Thirteen

The Gnostic Mass is a ritual of power and beauty, affirming age-old mysteries and the Manifestion of the Divine in the union of opposites. In 1913, while traveling in Russia with the all girl dance troupe, the Ragged Ragtime Girls, Aleister Crowley created the Gnostic Mass as the central public celebration of the Ordo Templi Orientis. His intent was to "celebrate the sublimity of the operation of universal forces without introducing disputable metaphysical theories." Join William Thirteen for an introduction to the history of Gnosticism and its exposition in the Gnostic Mass.
