Why I wish to join The Temple & how I found out about it...
I found the site looking for pdf files of Crowley documents, and thought I’d go ahead and sign up in case I want to eventually participate in any forum discussions (and/or any other members only features).
About Myself & My Interests..
Current interests include psychology, philosophy, religion, occult (i.e., Qabalah, Gematria, the Tarot, sacred geometry, etc.), and meditation.
My Teachers & Influences, What was it about them that influenced me?
I joined the Ordo Templi Orientis at 18; began taking Vipassana meditation courses at 28; and am currently finishing my student exam for the A.’.A.’. (which I hope to get done before age 38 :)).
Two of my psychology professors in college also had a significant impact on my life, especially in grad school.
It’s hard to pinpoint exactly how each was transformative without over-generalizing, but I would say that I take more responsibility now and am much more self-aware than I would’ve been otherwise, for sure.
