"A Black Pearl of Infinite Preciousness"
"Seek the New in the Old ~ Seek the Old in the New." That was the motto of Black Pearl, College of Thelema's biannual journal published 1997-2002. Author James A. Eshelman contributed 100 articles during one of the most prolific periods of his career. This anthology gathers over 40 essays, many of them substantially updated and expanded, and some of them never previously published.
Pearls of Wisdom "seeks the new in the old" through a magnificent cache of wisdom teachings from one of Thelema's most insightful, creative teachers.
This is the "director's cut" of Black Pearl and more!
An Introduction to Thelema the ground shifting world-view of Aleister Crowley explains Thelema's core principles of Will, Love, and Star, then expands on the nature of True Will and Love Under Will; Thelema's pantheon of gods; and the New Era of Aspiration now opening before us. The rest of the book is organized in 7 parts:
It's in the Basics + Magick + Qabalah + Thelema
Sexual Mysteries + Holy Guardian Angel + The Path
For example, one section ("Magick") explores a dozen topics of ceremonial magick, including traditional and newer forms of the pentagram and hexagram rituals, Sun adorations, new adaptations of classic initiation rites, the ancient art of evocation, and a new ritual for becoming a purer reflection of your deepest spiritual ideal. Chapter 32, The Magical Record of Brother Proserpinus, is a modern tale of a brother of A.'.A.'. who undertook the Great Work and succeeded. Four times the size of excerpts published in Black Pearl, this is the centerpiece of the book.
