Temple of Thelema


Temple of Thelema is a true Outer Order of the Greater Mysteries, providing ceremonial initiation; structured training; and regular group work, in conformity with the principles of The Book of the Law.

The Temple of Thelema operates on a "Three Ray" model of balanced development of Wisdom, Love, and Power, based upon practical methods that include intellectual training, meditation, and magical ritual at every stage of progress. Integrating these three forms is a Unifying quality that is the essence of self-knowledge (Self-Gnosis).

The initiation rituals and other ceremonies are frequently described by members as having a tremendous beauty and strength. The regular group ceremonial celebrations, and the ongoing group healing work which we perform, are central to the training method. There are, of course, both mystical and magical practices undertaken at home by each individual, in addition to the work done together.
