Esoteric Thelema differs from that of mainstream Thelema or ‘Crowleyanity’. The Law of Thelema will not be grasped by reason alone, or by merely studying the text of the Cairo transmission. It will certainly not be understood or practiced through appeal to the writings of Aleister Crowley. Yet the doctrine as revealed by Aiwass, the minister of Hoor-paar-kraat, can be explained in clear and simple terms. The article linked below is abridged from Babalon Unveiled! Thelemic Monographs.
- Those who require preliminary training in Hermetic Qabalah, which is the basis for ritual magick or tantra, may work through our supervised one-year Probationership Foundation Course. The course involves reading, study, ritual magick, yoga and meditation. Successful completion qualifies for admission to the first, initiatory degree of Neophyte 1 = 10.
- Advanced students may apply for our more flexible nine-month VITRIOL Probationer course. This requires a written presentation. Applicants may be tested in their knowledge of the mechanics of the art. Successful completion of the VITRIOL course qualifies for admission to the first, initiatory degree of Neophyte 1 = 10.
