Beyond Metaphysics: Lovecraft, Kenneth Grant and Gematria

The first ten minutes or so of this podcast comprises a lecture on the grade of Practicus, the third Initiated degree. We will be discussing various aspects of the grade work and Ordo Astri, the Order of the Star. There follows a highly entertaining, illustrated talk focussed on the new book, "Dreaming Thelema of Kenneth Grant and H. P. Lovecraft". This includes readings from two H. P. Lovecraft stories written in the 1920’s, "The Festival" and "The Call of Cthulhu". The final section concerns the Art of Gematria, and includes an unexpected appearance by Aleister Crowley!
