J. Daniel Gunther has been a life-long student of esotericism, mythology, religion and psychology. For over 35 years, he has been a member of A.’.A.’., the teaching and testing order established by Aleister Crowley. He is on the editorial board of The Equinox, and has served as consultant and advisor for a number of publications in the field of esotericism. He is the author of Initiation in the Aeon of the Child and with James Wasserman, was co-editor of Pythagoras, His Life & Teachings, both published by Ibis Press. His dynamic lectures and presentations have been proclaimed as penetrating and inspiring revelations of Thelemic doctrine.
On December 29th at Sekhet-Maat Lodge, Mr. Gunther will present two lectures to the public:
“Mend Me This Shoe, That I May Walk” is an introductory lecture utilizing the 5 Powers of the Sphinx as its framework. It is an admonition to follow the Path of the Great Work.
“No Name Among Men” is a more advanced lecture that is about the A.’.A.’. and Thelema. It also has a strong message considering that the Supreme Chiefs are attempting a new experiment in this Aeon—two distinct methods of attainment—one embodied in the A.’.A.’. and another embodied in the O.T.O. This lecture includes actual photographs of A.’.A.’. Initiates wearing the Robes of the Grades, from Probationer up to Magister Templi. It is a first in that regard.
The first lecture will begin promptly at 3pm, the second at 7pm. There will be a meal break from 5pm-7pm. Doors open thirty minutes before each lecture.
Admission to this event is $25 ($20 for Sekhet-Maat members). Visit our registration page for full details.
