Florence Farr was an actress, playwright, magician, and prominent member of the Golden Dawn.

She had a keen interest in ancient Egypt, studied and meditated in the Egyptian section of the British Museum. She wrote a book on Egyptian Magic as well as two Egyptian plays, "The Beloved of Hathor” and “The Shrine of the Golden Hawk" 
The full text of these plays are here:

However, I have re-typed “The Shrine of the Golden Hawk" and put it in our files here, it's easier to read.

Mary Greer, in Women of the Golden Dawn, wrote that “The Shrine of the Golden Hawk" reflected Florence’s magical practices, so that makes this play especially interesting.

We will discuss the meanings and symbolism in “The Shrine of the Golden Hawk" as well as the relationship of theatre and ritual. I would love to do a casual reading of “The Shrine of the Golden Hawk", depending on our time and inclination of the group. You don't have to be an actress, this is just for fun. If you are really shy, you don't have to read, you can just enjoy.

We can share snacks - and my apartment is air-conditioned!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
