Brother AISh MCLhMH Lectures

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

Star Sapphire Lodge will be hosting ​​ Brother AISh MCLhMH on January 31st - February 1st for a weekend of lectures as well as a celebration of the Gnostic Mass.

On Saturday January 31st, Brother AISh MCLhMH will be presenting on “Duplexity: a Glance at the Relationship Existing Between the O.T.O. and the A.•. A.•.” In this presentation Brother AISh MCLhMH will be discussing concepts related to the Word “Duplex” which Aleister Crowley received on the Vernal Equinox of 1915 and described as “pertaining to the mystic marriage of A.•. A.•. and O.T.O.” Some of the questions to be addressed are: What are the O.T.O. and A.•. A.•. exactly? Are there similarities between both Orders? What are some differences between both Orders? Are the O.T.O. and A.•. A.•. connected? How so?

On Sunday, Brother AISh MCLhMH will be exploring “Our Lord and Father the Sun: Liber Resh and the O.T.O” which will begin with an analysis of Liber Resh (an official ritual of A.•. A.•.) by taking a look at Golden Dawn material, the Cairo Working, Qabalah, and the Egyptian Book of the Dead. Brother AISh MCLhMH will then proceed to look at Liber Resh from within the context of O.T.O. including instructions given to Hymenaeus Alpha and how this connection may relate to the solar current within the Gnostic Mass. After an intermission, Brother AISh MCLhMH will join us for a celebration the Gnostic Mass.
