Thelema draws from many rich traditions, both Eastern and Western.
The typical practices used in Thelema include meditation practices from Liber E, the ceremonial practices of Western esotericism, the religious rites of Ecclesia Gnostica Catholica, and the celebrations of Thelema's holidays.
Anyone who works these practices with dedication will see results in a relatively short period of time. It is a myth that enlightenment takes a lifetime. Rather, it can be obtainted in a matter of years with diligent practice.
Diversity and Acceptance
People of any gender, race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation are treated equally in the Thelemic community.
We do not merely tolerate diversity among Thelemites, but celebrate it. Thelema is for all.
"Intolerance is evidence of impotence." - A.C.
"The Law is for All." - A.C.
