   Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
   In the proud tradition of In the Continuum, the College of
   Thelema presents a new biannual journal committed to the highest
   quality of Thelemic thought, creativity, and instruction,
   published twice annually, at the Vernal and Autumnal Equinoxes.
   Articles on Qabalah, tarot, ritual magick, yoga, astrology,
   psychology, Thelemic philosophy, and other related subjects are
   included which will assist the student to gain self-knowledge and
   to discover his or her True Will. Each issue contains material
   targetted especially at the beginning student, and also more
   advanced material.
   Regular features include a section on the Qabalistic analysis of
   important numbers; book reviews; poetry by Crowley and others;
   and articles on magick and yoga, which are the foundation
   practices of spiritual attainment. Along with articles on diverse
   aspects of Hermeticism, the ten issues of Volume I will include a
   series on practical Ceremonial Magick with extensive example
   rituals; an astrological and Qabalistic analysis of Crowley's
   astral investigations of the Enochian Aethyrs in The Vision & the
   Voice; and a series of articles (beginning in Issue No. 2) on
   Raja Yoga.
   Back issues will remain in print to preserve the cumulative
   reference value of the publication.
   Love is the law, love under will.
