This panel will present excerpts from Liber II, Liber Oz, Duty, & The Law is for All in order to discuss ideas about discovering one's True Will, eliminating distractions, cultivating self-discipline, and working towards the creation of a better world through personal development (microcosm) and the establishment of the Law of Thelema as a social structure (macrocosm) that aims to secure the greatest liberty for all individuals to accomplish the Great Work. "So with thy all; thou hast no right but to do thy will. Do that, and no other shall say nay." [Liber AL I:42-43]
1:15 pm - 3:00 pm ~ On Site Lunch Provided By Scarlet Woman Lodge (included in ticket price)
3:00 pm -4:30 pm ~ A Ritual: Drumming Through The Sephirot, Sor. Tzaddi.
Qabalah and shamanic trance combine to allow participants to enter a deep trance state and examine the Tree of Life from a new perspective. We will review the Sephirot briefly at the beginning of the working, then choose a Sephira to focus an intention on during the trance state. Intentions should be specific, e.g. "What is a personal meaning of Chesed for me?" or "I want an insight into how I can manifest Tiphereth."
7:00pm - 10:00pm ~ Rouge et Noir Salon of Just Desserts, presented by the Baphomet Chapter Rose Croix

Join your fellow attendees Saturday evening at the Lodge from 7-10 pm for some after-dinner socializing and relaxation while enjoying a sensational sweet, a cup of coffee or an after-dinner liquor.

Sunday June 24:
10:00 am - 11:30 am ~ Alchemy and the Tattvas, Fr. Omega B.
A presentation concerning the origins of the universe, the interplay of matter and spirit, the revealing and concealing activities of consciousness, and the double circulation of light, offered forth for consumption to discriminating yogis, tantrikis, and magicians of every warp and woof.
11:45 am - 1:15 pm ~ Liberating Love, Sor. Musick
Many Thelemites work toward personal and societal liberation. You can find individuals in open or closed relationships, exploring sexual preferences, and in beds of purple. Crowley called our sexual instinct “the first of the masks upon the face of the True Will." Sor. Musick will explore common barriers to liberating love such as, sexual attitudes and beliefs, body image and self-care, the power of pleasure, ownership of desire, and sensate focus. A group activity may be included in this presentation.
1:15 pm - 2:30 pm ~ Off Site Lunch Break
3:00 pm - 5:00pm ~ Gnostic Mass
