Did you know that members of WBL are Active in posting articles for Zero = Two, the Official Blog of the OTO USA? Check it out to see interesting posts on Thelemic topics such as Leaping Laughter’s recent successful sortie to the Twin Cities Pride Festival or the possibility that Aliester Crowley served as a technical consultant on the 1916 film “The Mysteries of Myra.”

Who was William Blake?

Our Lodge is named after artist, writer, poet & mystic, William Blake, whose work provides a legacy reminding us that the core concepts within Thelemic philosophy have been with us far longer than merely a century, and that some of its greatest proponents lived and died long before 1904 e.v.

The Gnostic Catholic Church or E.G.C., in fact, recognizes William Blake as a notable link in that historic chain transmitting the light of the gnosis throughout the ages, and has canonized him as a gnostic saint.
