• Thelema Study Group at New Moon, Lakewood, OH
In Cairo, Egypt in 1904. Aleister Crowley entered a state of trance and wrote down the three chapters of 220 verses that came to be called The Book of the Law (also known as Liber Al and Liber Legis). Among other things, this book declared: “The word of the law is Thelema” and “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.” This group will discuss and study the Law of Thelema at this session each month.
