Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
Following the year 1904, when The Book of the Law was produced, a radical reformulation of Hermetic mystery schools began. This Qabalistic book, dictated to the mystic and magician Aleister Crowley by Aiwass, a being beyond human conception or comprehension, declares that Thelema, or the essential Will of each human being, should be the basis of a rigorous type of occultism that has since come to be known as scientific illuminism. The Temple of Our Lady of the Stars is a Toronto-based mystery school that trains committed individuals in this practice. It teaches Hermetic science, meditation, ceremonial magick and Qabalistic psychology in a proven, graduated system that includes both group work and private study. And it offers a community of aspirants for those who seek to grow in Love, Power and Wisdom. The aim of the Temple is to guide each member to realise his or her own True Will: the truth, purpose, essential reality or dharma that is unique for every individual, yet which can be discovered and comprehended by following a set curriculum. This process includes the way towards transformative mystical illumination, just as such illumination in turn deepens our grasp of the nature, function and scope of individual True Will. The Temple of Our Lady of the Stars maintains close links to the Temple of the Silver Star, which was authorized by Soror Meral (Phyllis Seckler) to perpetuate her own life’s work in service to A∴A∴ Completion of the First Order of the Temple’s system is one means of preparation for further study in A.’.A.’., as well as readying aspirants for the ordeals brought by deeper initiation.
