This week we finish our exposition of the Book of the Law by breaking down the concepts found in the second and third chapters of the book!
This week we take a brief respite from the life of Aleister Crowley as we arrive at the foot of the monumental work that is the Book of the Law and the Magical System that it lays the foundation for: Thelema. We’ll break down this supposed direct revelation to try to uncover the basics of the system that would shape the modern world as we know it, and we get into the meaning of the most important concept of all of Thelema: The True Will. We hope you’ll enjoy.
This week on the podcast we cover the direct lead up to the writing of the seminal work of Crowley’s life, the foundation of his philosophical magical system, Thelema. It, of course, comes through being a completely extra weirdo who is obsessed with being the smartest one in the room, as we’ll see. We hope you enjoy!
This week we start the true descent into madness as we being a nosedive towards Crowley’s supposed career in Espionage, as he leaves the organization he fought so hard to be a part of (or to make parts out of) in order to sojourn on a brief vacation before getting down to the grueling business of writing scripture and constructing a religion. We hope you’ll enjoy!
Books used for this series:
This week we examine the way that an institution that had been in place for over a decade suddenly seemed to self-destruct as soon as Crowley get his grubby little hands on it. The dissolution of the Golden Dawn kicks off Crowley’s career as a world class Magician, and set the stage for all that would come after. But is it possible there was more at play than Blood, Sex, and Magic? Could there also be………espionage? We hope you’ll enjoy.
This week we examine the reincarnated Scottish Wizard King who served as mentor and magical master to Crowley in the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, as well as dive pretty deeply into the practice of the Neophyte Initiation ritual, just so we all know what level of nerddom we’re looking at here with these secret societies. We hope you’ll enjoy!
This week we dive into the history and idea of Rosicrucianism, the diverse orders that it has given birth to, and turn our eyes towards one of the most notable episodes in Aleister Crowley’s young life: the infiltration of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. We hope you’ll enjoy!

This week we begin an expedition that will surely lead us nowhere but our own, hubristic doom. We begin to walk a lonely road, the only one that the Great Beast, had ever known. A road which leads directly to the Crowley Zone. We start our examination by casting an eye towards the wickedest baby the world has ever known, who grows into the wickedest young man the world has ever known, before turning into the wickedest college student the world has ever known, and along the way we learn a valuable lesson about labeling people and what it can lead to: a whole new way of doing Magick. We hope you’ll enjoy!
This week we cover one of the most intriguing of all the First Peoples’ legends, the Thunderbird. We explore it’s legendary origins, and its significance as advocate and judge of humankind. Jason talks a whole lot about birds. We examine accounts of beasts with 20 foot wingspans, terrorizing the skies above Alaska. Jason talks a whole lot more about birds. A wonderful time was had by all. We hope you’ll enjoy!
