In my previous three posts (HERE, HERE, and HERE) I described an easy way to astral project, why astral travel is important and how to do it, and the concept explaining why performing astral magick can be very powerful. In the last post I wrote, "it’s possible for us to prevent ourselves from achieving our magickal goals by unconsciously countering our magick."

As we look back at some of Crowley's comments from our perspective
I'd like to begin by thanking everyone who commented on my previous post concerning the Wiccan Rede. All of the comments received on it, save one, have been posted. I hope you've read them and that they've triggered debate and discussion.

I have been giving workshops for many years. I've given them for as few as two people and for as many as 600. Every one has been unique and fun. This webinar, however, was different:
Although there were breaks during the live webinar for questions and audience
In Israel Regardie's The Golden Dawn, there is a paper entitled "The Tattwas of the Eastern School." It was addressed to the members of the Philosophus Grade of the Order by Frater De Profundis ad Lucem (Latin for “From the depths to the light,” the motto of Frederick Leigh Gardner, 1857–1930).
