AMeTh Lodge Journal Vol I No 2 June 2013

“This fabulous, high quality, beautifully printed and bound second issue of the Lodge’s Journal should not disappoint!:

  • Br. Shaun Johnson analyses Crowley’s negative opinion of mediumship, seeking to place this in a socio-historical context and thereby reclaim the field as a legitimate and useful area of research for the practising magician.
  • Fr. Vaoanu describes what happens when a goetic spirit runs amok, creating havoc in the everyday life of the unsuspecting ritualist.
  • Fr. Wahdaniah delves into the annals of a working group meeting each week to scry the Tree of Life, describing the ritual approach adopted by the group, the sort of results that were obtained, and the psychological factors involved in scrying.
  • Br. Gary Dickinson traces the cultural origins and subsequent peregrinations of the mysterious figure of Lam, highlighting a major area of influence on Crowley’s thought and work which has been elided by later commentators.
  • Sr. I presents an illuminating approach to using astrology as a tool in the quest to discover the True Will.
  • Sr. Dwale gives a first-hand account of an initiation into a ceremonial magic group, recounting what happened one night somewhere in the depths of Cornwall.
  • Fr. Sotto Voce, is something of a ‘call to arms’ for those in the Order.
  • Fr. Lamogue, has written a wonderful fable about the Order of practically Sufic simplicity.
  • For the first time, in this issue – an article by a guest author who is not a member of O.T.O.: a fascinating study of Aleister Crowley’s trip to Russia with his troupe of Ragged Ragtime Girls, written by Geraldine Beskin.

This edition also offers an eclectic selection of rituals written and performed by Lodge members for the reader’s delectation:

  • There is the Pyramid of the Sphinx, a ritual written by Fr. Spiritus which utilises some of the key ideas detailed by Crowley in Liber Aleph.
  • Fr. Dharmakaya draws on his background in Witchcraft to construct a Thelemic Witchcraft Ritual.
  • Fr. 515 presents The Rite of Hekate, a ritual invoking an ancient goddess using the formulae of ceremonial magick, accompanied by an essay outlining the key considerations and sources which featured in its composition.
  • Not to mention an interview with the eminently edifying Lon Milo DuQuette, who offers his own unique view on a whole host of magical topics mercilessly hurled at him by his interlocutors.

All is adorned by excellent artwork and photographs created by Lodge members and printed in full colour, including the magnificent image which graces the front cover of this second issue.” [via]

Liber AL: an examination

Liber AL: an examination is a recent release from Conjoined Creation. Although not mentioned on the page for this book, it appears this being released by Marlene Cornelius and is in part an expanded reissue of material that appeared in the journal Red Flame, No 8.

Liber AL from Conjoined Creation

“Thelema, the religious philosophy of ‘Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law,’ began when Liber AL vel Legis was received by Aleister Crowley in April 1904. Liber AL, also known as The Book of the Law, is the central holy book of Thelema, and forms the foundation of Thelemic theory and practice. It has therefore been the subject of intense study by Thelemites for over a century.

The Book of the Law has been of interest to many people over the last century and has impacted innumerable lives. The research in Liber AL: an examination is of great importance to anyone seeking a deeper understanding of Thelema’s foundational text, whether or not one is a Thelemite.

Liber AL: an examination brings together for the first time several scholarly expositions of different aspects of The Book of the Law, including a detailed review of its publication history and an exact transliteration of the manuscript with notations regarding changes made to it by Aleister Crowley during the course of his life. It also includes an exploration of a recent debate about whether the typescript as published by Crowley may contain a printing error that was never corrected.” [via]

Coreopsis, a Journal of Myth and Theatre

Hermetic Library fellow Sam Webster has announced the revival of Coreopsis, a Journal of Myth and Theatre under the Concrescent Scholars imprint. The journal will be independent and freely available online; and will be online-only publication, at least to start. While peer-reviewed, the journal is open to non-academic authors. In addition to making available past issues on the new site, you can check out the call for papers for Spring/Summer 2013 and Fall/Winter 2013 on their announcements page.

Coreopsis, a Journal of Myth and Theatre from Concrescent Scholars

 

Coreopsis is a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal dedicated to humanistic scholarship in the arts of sacred performance in areas of interest that include — but, are not limited to — ritual studies, liturgical considerations, musicology and composition, dance, folklore, mythology, historical research, theatre arts (including technical aspects), mythopoetics, ethnography and selected areas of psychology, brain science, neuraesthetics, cybernetics and the science of thought, shamanic studies, and consciousness.” [via]

 

“I am proud to announce the relaunch of Coreopsis, a Journal of Myth and Theatre!

In the spring of 2009, Dr. Lezlie Kinyon with a staff of volunteers launched Coreopsis Journal and produced six issues before going into abeyance. Now with the publishing support of Concrescent Scholars, the academic imprint of Concrescent Press, Coreopsis has been moved onto a new WordPress platform and a new host to improve access and publishing flexibility. Paul Rucker (paulruckerart.com) has taken on art direction for the publication and it is his work you see in the banner and background.

We are now in preparation for our next issue, Spring/Summer 2013 Vol. 2 No. 4: Musing upon Euterpe: Electric and Acoustic Music of Our Times.

Suggested subjects include, but are not limited to, music of the ancients, music and mythology, music in myth and theater, Pagan and traditional music, and modern mythical topic within popular and folk music. The publication date is April 29. See the Announcements tab for more information.” [via]
