777 and Other Qabalistic Writings of Aleister Crowley


OVERVIEW

Join us online every Thursday, from anywhere in the world, to talk about 777 and Other Qabalistic Writings of Aleister Crowley.

In this discussion we will be looking at Liber 777 in a less-than-typical way. Most Thelemites own 777 and use it quite frequently. Have you ever looked between the columns? This book, in its entirety, is a mess! This discussion will be organized and thorough, and attempt to set order to all of the essays and writings within the book. And we might even learn something in the process!

1) First we will be covering the introduction by Crowley and his Appendix writings on Qabalah.

2) Then we will work our way through the front of the book titled Gematria.

3) After this we will cover the column essays in the center of the book, while comparing them to the columns themselves.

4) Lastly we will cover the sections on the Yi King and Liber 500.
