Half a century before Crowley a hitherto unknown “astrological professor and magician” was at work in Liverpool. England. He was also a herbalist and a galvanist. Like Crowley, he (and his associates, but especially him) were accused of practising and promoting sexual immorality and undermining religious propriety. He developed his own system for crystal skrying involving placing the skrying glass at the centre of “bonds” – diagrams with names of power. The bond for men and women were different indicating an awareness of tantric polarity.
This book is truly a Master’s “gift” to his Chela: the parting of true gnosis in the form of actual and deeply personal EXPERIENCE. Sean draws from his real life adventures, both magickal and mundane (at times within the same breath!) to impart to the reader layers of sacred and hyper-occult knowledge. It is unprecedented! A true modern grimoire, its chapters vary from deeply heartfelt and poignant to surrealist sci-fi, and always imparting technical and workable occult knowledge, and always directly to the core of human experience.
The Hieroglyphic Monad represents a visionary Elizabethan mind seeking to conjure the embodiment of universal knowledge into a single symbol. Written in just two weeks, the text has confounded scholars and general readers alike but this new translation, over a year in production, seeks to provide clarity and context and, in doing so, better convey the sheer ambition of its author. Including an introduction by the the translator, Michael Zellmann-Rohrer of Oxford University, and a specially commissioned essay by Emma Doeve, this brand new edition of the Hieroglyphic Monad will provide greater insight than ever before into one of John Dee’s most famous texts.

This work was first published in 1895 in Trinidad and achieved instant obscurity, However, it seems that a bell was rung somewhere as 9 years later, on 8th April 1904 Aiwass instructed Crowley that, as well as the mantras and spells and the work of the wand and the sword, he should learn and teach “the obeah and the wanga”.

LAShTAL.COM proudly presents a free download of Richard Cole’s excellent Thelema Revisited.
Richard Cole requests your company on a nostalgic journey to a small village on the North-East coast of Sicily, where fifty years ago, on a hot June morning, a wealthy Italian man called Giuseppe Ferrara arrived on a horse and carriage to greet the child’s grandparents and escort them around his old farmhouse. Before leaving, Mr Ferrara gives their grandson a keepsake of the visit: A small glass phial left by the previous tenant. Although the phial is soon lost, the child retains a life-long fascination for its owner. A man whose rise from obscurity to the celebrity status and world renown he enjoys posthumously today is nothing short of remarkable.
Richard Cole’s lavishly illustrated travelogue answers all of the questions you are ever likely to ask about Crowley’s Abbey of Thelema and dispels many of the myths. It includes:
Hundreds of rare, unseen and unpublished photographs of the Abbey and Cefalu from the past and present.
A comprehensive and fascinating history of the Abbey, its tenants, visitors, vandals and owners.
A summary of the key events which occurred during Crowley’s three-year and one month long attempt to create a New World Religion.
Fills in gaps and ties up many loose-ends left by other published accounts.
Recollections and memories of Crowley from lifelong inhabitants of Cefalu, neighbours and relatives of the Abbey’s current owners.
A contemporary ghost story from the Abbey, complete with a recently taken photograph of Crowley’s ghost!
