Chalice provides a Public Event every month in order to serve the Valley of Glastonbury. We offer classes and workshops across a whole-day event. Since January 2013 e.v. this has been under the banner of our "Magick: Theory and Practice" series, and we have enjoyed great success in both attendance and camaraderie. We have also facilitated Ordo Templi Orientis in the UK performing celebrations of Liber XV: The Gnostic Mass.

Our public events are open to everybody, and a great opportunity to meet the Thelemites of Glastonbury. We do not charge for Public Events, in order to extend the support of the group to Thelemites and occultists who wish to learn more, but we will happily accept donations towards running costs, venue hire, and materials. We always have books to hand on Thelema, magick, and other schools of the mysteries.

Typically, our M:TP classes begin with a performance of the Mark of the Beast Ritual, as adapted by Sef Salem from Rodney Orpheus's Grimoire of Aleister Crowley. This is a group version of Liber V vel Reguli, an annotated copy of which is hosted on Rodney's personal site.

Following this performance, which will sometimes include a thorough breakdown of the ritual, we will cover magical practice following a particular theme, with speakers from across the occult community who are friends of the group. Here is a selection of the topics we have covered during 2013 e.v.:
  • Divination, including Tarot and I Ching
  • The Eucharist
  • Mind and Body Magick, including Qi Gong and Aikido
  • Astral Magick
  • Invocation, including Liber Pyramidos
  • Thelemic Boot Camp
Our Public Events can be found on our upcoming events page, and are generally held on the last Sunday of every month. Please get in touch if you would like to attend, for venue and directions.
