WORKSHOPS

Studying Thelema is a lifetime endeavour: however I found out in my experience of 20 years and counting, that many of its teachings could be presented to the modern-day audiences in a streamlined, contemporary format.
This is what these lectures and workshops aim to achieve. If you are interested in hosting one, please get in touch via email.

We will at these exercises and short individual rites and will teach them in class, with with hands-on practice Many who have read about Crowley’s magick have often said they would welcome hands-on guidance on starting out in a practical sense. So in this workshop the key things involved in a home-based Thelemic life are covered in turn: from Liber Resh, a rite to welcome the sun, to Thelemic Yoga with particular attention to asanapranayama, and dharana, to the short Liber XXV: The Star Ruby and Liber V vel Reguli rituals, the Middle Pillar exercise, and the keeping of a magical diary. Absolutely no previous experience is expected. The evening workshop is both practical and theoretical, well structured and engaging. Image by Serpentfire.

  • Reflections on the Scarlet Asterisms: Liber XXV, the Star RubyREFLECTIONS ON THE SCARLET ASTERISMS: LIBER XXV, THE STAR RUBY
  • Duration: 2 hours.
  • Abstract: This Thelemic ritual was created by Aleister Crowley in 1913, who describes it as a ‘new and more elaborate version of the Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram’. Expanding it and perfecting it later in his life, he included it in the magical regimen of the A∴A∴ . It attunes the magician to the energies of the aeon, working both as a banishing and proper invocation of those forces. Tonight teaches how to do the ritual along with its inner visualisations, explaining its deeper philosophical and theological relevance in the context of the 93rd Current, with plenty of hands-on practice.

  • The Arcane Conception (Detail), by Mitchell NolteTHELEMA WITHOUT TEARS
  • Duration: 2 hours evenings, over 6 consecutive weeks.
  • Abstract: Studying Thelema is a lifetime endeavour, but this six-week course gives participants a theoretical and practical grounding; with this under their belt, people can either go further, or work alone with an appreciation of one of the major esoteric currents of Western magic. All will be able to follow a daily routine of study and ritual as devised by Aleister Crowley himself in one of the chapters of his “Liber Aleph”. The course is well-structured and each session offers a satisfying mix of lecture and practice. Attendees will be given a ritual robe, properly consecrated, to wear during the practical exercises planned in the latter weeks. Handouts and slides will be provided each week, along with audio recordings of the various visualisation and pathworkings presented at each session. Participants from all magical and scholarly backgrounds are warmly welcome. No prior experience required. Image by Mitchell Nolte.

  • Thoth Tarot IntroducedTHOTH TAROT INTRODUCED
  • Duration: 2 hours.
  • Abstract: Aleister Crowley’s famous Thoth Tarot is an iconographic masterpiece. It was painted in the 1940s by Frieda, Lady Harris in collaboration with Crowley’s direction, and it encodes a world of meaning both in terms of the Western esoteric which fed into Thelema but also Thelema itself.Tonight’s seminar introduces the Thoth tarot in all its splendour, with a focus on the central concepts driving the vision and the core symbols underpinning it.

    NOTE: this is not a class in how to read the tarot cards, it is about the underlying concepts and on how Crowley’s ideas are embedded in the symbols.

“You couldn’t ask for a worthier mentor.”

"Attending one of Marco’s courses is a little like plunging head first down the rabbit hole, in the most exhilarating way. His classes are underpinned by theoretical and philosophical principles honed through years of magickal praxis; the kind of practical, experiential teaching through which he expertly guides each student is both invaluable and incomparable to the education one can glean from books alone. I experienced one of the most powerful meditative states of my life and a result of one of Marco’s visualisations. All this, punctuated by indispensable good humour and approachability - you couldn’t ask for a worthier mentor."

“I highly recommend his tutelage to anybody wishing to explore esoterica and their own magical potential.”

"Marco is an excellent teacher, who has a rare ability to distill complex esoteric ideas into a format accessible to people with a wide range of experience. His knowledge of all things occult seems both deep and limitless, and he is more than happy to share this knowledge in a good humoured and patient manner. Marco has helped me to make the leap from reading about Magick in books, to becoming a practicing ritual magician. I highly recommend his tutelage to anybody wishing to explore esoterica and their own magical potential."

“Absolutely LOVED your workshop. Hands down the best workshop I have attended.”

"Absolutely LOVED your workshop. Hands down the best workshop I have attended. I went with reservations how I would find it as I am not wild about Crowley but certain events lead me to want to explore and find a way to bring ritual and magic into my life but discernment is always a vital tool but everything resonated and just wish I had known of your course last year. I'll sign up for your Patreon page though as guidance and the online monthly talk sounds exciting. Then once I have done some study I'll look at possibly booking a session in time. So very grateful for all you brought to the evening. I know it takes an immense amount of energy to hold the space for us all and I feel blessed to have had the gift of your workshop."
