Thelema (/θəˈliːmə/; Koine Greek: [θélima]) is a religion that was developed by the early 20th century British writer and ceremonial magician, Aleister Crowley. He came to believe himself to be the prophet of a new age, the Æon of Horus, based upon a spiritual experience that he and his wife, Rose Edith, had in Egypt in 1904. By his account, a possibly non-corporeal or "praeterhuman" being that called itself Aiwass contacted him and dictated a text known as The Book of the Law or Liber AL vel Legis, which outlined the principles of Thelema. An adherent of Thelema is a Thelemite.

[close] A venue to discuss traditional and new books on the occult arts, including but not limited to ceremonial magick, enochian, goetia, thelema, golden dawn, alchemy and the people who practiced and/or wrote about these arts. We will select a book each month (or longer depending on its size) and discuss it. Given the subject matter and the very real dangers some of the topics bring to table, this group will be private and you will have to be individually approved by the moderator(s). Apologies for any inconvenience.

[close] The Tampa Bay Occulture club was founded to address the need for non-denominational representation of Tampa Bay’s occult and magical community. We strive to provide the environment for seekers of all backgrounds to network and learn, as well to explore the intersection of otherwise disparate schools of thought. We pride ourselves on being a space that is inclusive of marginalized voices and seeks to foster greater understanding in a world that so often pretends to have forgotten its soul.
