Manage episode 196581040 series 1335182
We take an electric journey with Aleister Crowley during his years in the New World — largely based on research previously undiscovered by biographers and scholars. This mystic adventure includes Crowley’s views of American art and spirituality, as well as torrid relationships/encounters that shaped much of his views. We also address many controversial issues of the Beast, such as his racial/gender attitudes, magical conflict with WB Yates, and what is the central truth of “Do What Thou Wilt.” Of course, the topic of Crowley’s relation to the ancient Gnostics is dealt with deeply.
Astral Guest — Tobias Churton, author of Aleister Crowley in America: Art, Espionage, and Sex Magick in the New World.
