The presentations planned for the conference focus on the practical application of Thelemic principles, and how they impact the individual, society, and the universe at large.

In addition, we will be discussing Thelemic and A.’.A.’. history, engaging in group ritual, presenting panel discussions, and showcasing a musical performance by Lon Milo DuQuette and David Shoemaker.

It is our goal for the participants to emerge from the conference informed, inspired, entertained, initiated, and ready to approach the world as Thelemic magicians and mystics.

NOTE: The schedule below may change as we draw closer to the event, but it should give prospective attendees a basic sense of the content and flow of the weekend. All events will take place at the DoubleTree hotel.
