An integral part of Thelema as a spiritual tradition is regular individual spiritual and magical practice.The Practice in the Thelemic Temple series focuses on techniques, rituals, and approaches to this individual practice, offering workshops focused on specific practices, including both presentation and discussion of theory as well as hands-on engagement with practice. All workshops will be designed so that prior knowledge or attendance at previous workshops in the series is unnecessary.
The Holy Hexagram. While the pentagram symbolically references the microcosm of the individual, the hexagram typically is understood to reference the broader macrocosm of the cosmos. With the Hexagram rituals, the magician engages work with the broader macrocosmic forces, such as planetary powers. In this workshop we will survey various hexagram rituals and discuss their use in temple practice, including an examination of the relationship between the “regular hexagram” used in earlier, Golden Dawn rituals of the hexagram and the “holy hexagram” called for in Crowley’s Star Sapphire.
