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.
