It is with great pleasure that we announce another inter-continental visitor to the Chalice group, David Shoemaker of US Grand Lodge!

Chalice will host a book signing of his latest work, Living Thelema in conjunction with Labyrinth Books of Glastonbury, at the Avalon Club in the town centre. Afterwards, Dr Shoemaker will be presenting on the topic of True Will,on Sunday 13th July 2014 e.v. to include the following:

"The concept of the True Will is central to Aleister Crowley's spiritual system of Thelema. In this workshop, David Shoemaker will explain the often misunderstood topic of True Will, in down-to-earth and understandable terms. Attendees will be given useful tools to aid in their own quest for knowledge of the True Will, with ample time for questions and discussion."

We will round the evening off with a ritual led by Dr Shoemaker. All will be most welcome to participate, please contact us with any queries.
