We're happy to announce that a new book by Dr. David Shoemaker will be released later this year based on his Living Thelema segments on this podcast, and will include additional discussion and resources.

Tune in to future Speech in the Silence programs for further information about this book.
We are thrilled to announce the launch of Collective777, Art Guild of Ordo Templi Orientis Australia, which aims to raise awareness of esoteric and occult art in all its forms, to further the interests of its members, and to promulgate the Law of Thelema through the creation of artistic work and staging of creative public initiatives.
