I ran to a church

To purge myself of guilt

Trying to find some meaning

Trying to find my worth

I stared at all the people 

So white and so intent

Then ran out the back door

To let the city's lips take me in

 

I don't need a building I need this rain on my skin

I don't need stained glass windows

I need the paintings of the people as my Religion

 

Me I speak in poetry

The streets echo lines I've yet to write

This body has no language

Only follows any form of light

I stand before the altar

The water shifts and sighs

I offer up my music and she smiles

 

I don't need a building I need this rain on my skin

I don't need stained glass windows

I need the paintings of the people as my Religion

"On Thelema" by Aleister Crowley

IO PAN! and Shemyaza Camp

  • Originally conceived in 2009 as a project to be included with Sorath, the journal of Shemesh Lodge, the newly released EP is a four track Thelemic gem of epic scope. The limited release vinyl contains two tracks: "Prologue to the Unborn" and "Hymn to Pan." Both are performed by members of Shemyaza Camp and set to original contemporary scores by Brother Cameron Leonard-Schroff, a respected electronic music artist in his own right.

    Purchasing the vinyl means you get an exclusive download code to all four tracks, which means that along with those also found on the vinyl, you get "Liber B vel Magi" and "LBRP" too. All are downloadable as MP3 files for you to keep. All 4 tracks are to original scores which bring some of Crowley's best-known works into a totally modern paradigm.

    Take a look at the preview on YouTube. If you like what you hear, please support the work of Shemyaza Camp and get a piece of this very limited edition slice of Thelemic media history. All proceeds go to the running of Shemyaza Camp, who are dedicated to promulgating the Law of Thelema in the Valley of Brighton, UK and beyond.

    If you wish to purchase the vinyl and download code for all 4 tracks, please email: shemyaza@oto-uk.org for more info.

    This release was made possible with the generous assistance of UK Grand Lodge of O.T.O.

Response to Listener Feedback

Many thanks to Jasin Lee, who sent a detailed message with lots of great feedback for the show. We felt that a couple of the questions he asked might be of interest to our listeners, so we have provided a couple of excerpts from Jasin's note below, along with our response:

Thank you! One of the many wonderful things I have already gotten from your work is this incredible feeling that there really IS a whole wide Thelemic world out there! As I was "growing up" in the [Man of Earth Triad] it usually felt like there was just us few initiates that were active with this one little local body. We fought tooth and nail to combat this feeling with frequent road trips of hundreds of miles to get together with other Thelemites and initiates both for the Great work and repose. Well, I am still in a similar region and it still feels like a Thelemic wasteland of much desert between any gathering initiates. But I got that wonderful Thelemic-world feeling right in my own home from your last podcast.

Speech in the Silence: Thank you! It's heartwarming to know that Speech in the Silence has helped you to feel more connected to the Thelemic universe.

I would like to express how impressed I was by David Shoemaker's new "Living Thelema" series ... that segment is just exactly the type of thing I am so looking for! [However,] there did seem to be some conspicuous absences in the list of future segments [of "Living Thelema"].

SS: The list of future segments was not exhaustive and we have passed along your ideas to Dr. Shoemaker. He aims to address the questions and areas of interest of listeners, so thanks much for your feedback!

Next, I want to praise Tau Polyphilus' segment. ... I am always deeply moved and impressed when he speaks or writes... But I hope you have him on your show often! I want to feel about the whole EGC Creed how I now feel about it's third article thanks to Tau Polyphilus!"

SS: We share your hope and are optimistic that T Polyphilus will be back in future segments.

[T Omphalos], who is coming to our kingdom and speaking soon ... what I would love to know is what is in his public speaking dates, let alone his degree tyled presentations.

SS: Complete information about the T Omphalos at the event web page. Thanks Jasin for the email! Speech in the Silence can be contacted at: speechinthesilence@ararita.org or call and leave voicemail at 646-402-5688 x 46368. Thanks for listening.

We will include lectures, music, interviews, discussions, and more. Also, we will feature readings of the Holy Books of Thelema and other important texts written by Aleister Crowley. Speech in the Silence is also a creative outlet for Thelemites, and we encourage listener feedback and participation.
