Hi. Ive just registered as a member. This site impressed me as being a fair and impartial site for discussion of many different aspects of Crowleys teachings and related belief systems. About 8 years ago I started reading Crowley intently, going through most of his writings, as well as Eliphas Levi, Dion Fortune, Israel Regardie, Kenneth Grant, Lon Milo Duquette, and others. This led me into a deeper study of yoga, Buddhism, the Vedanta, and other ideas from the orient. I dont agree with everything Crowley (or anyone ever) said, but I believe he was a prophet of human spiritual evolution and that a new Aeon dawned on this planet in the 20th century. I am drawn to the ideas of Kenneth Grant as for my entire life I have felt a resonance with darker artforms and mindstates. Now is a time when people are finding connections between various systems and practices; for me, this Aeon represents the freedom for each to find a personal Alchemy. Im not the most disciplined or organized practitioner on the planet (and i might be the worst magickal diary keeper ever), but im always trying to learn and progress at whatever im doing. I look forward to any intelligent conversation.

Welcome, Paul (You are welcome.)
No, I think that accolade must go to me (although I was good at one time)... Better brush up on that one, though, if you want to stand a chance of joining Grant’s lot!
Have a gorgeous time,
