EVENT: Three Days Celebration

8th April 2017ev

Craobh Ruadh Community Space, Conway Mill,
Conway Street, Belfast, Northern Ireland

 Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law

Every year Thelemites around the world meet to celebrate the writing of Liber Al vel Legis, The Book of the Law. This book is a charter of individual liberty as the right of every person.  Those who accept this charter are called thelemites. For those who will, it is a path of self-knowledge towards the implementation of your true will or purpose.

You are invited to participate in An Irish Thelemic celebration, which is also open to other like-minded individuals who would like to join our celebrations.

We will have ritual, readings, performance, workshops, talks, vending and will be running concurrently with the Candle of Vision Exhibition. Listings are subject to change
