Aleister Crowley, October 12, 1875 – December 1, 1947
The founder of Thelema, was a gifted magician, as well as a prolific writer and poet, a world traveler, mountaineer, chess master, artist, yogi, social provocateur, drug experimentalist and sexual liberationist.
Crowley received The Book of the Law - the core Holy book of Thelema - in 1904. The Book of the Law states in chapter 2, verse 41:
"a feast for life and a greater feast for death!"
So, we will celebrate Crowley's accomplishments with a feast and sharing of stories and verse on the anniversary of his death. If you like, bring one or a few poems written by Aleister Crowley to share.
We are having dinner at the Horus Cafe in the East Village, 93 Ave. B at 6th Street, 7:00 pm.
