    Once upon a time, I threatened to write a review about a book where I told people to throw away every book they owned on the subject of Thelema and buy the book I was reviewing. There are a lot of books on magick in general and Thelema specifically that are utter rubbish. And I do means lots.But, here, David Shoemaker pops out with Living Thelema and takes the cake, the field, the storm, the whole kit and kaboodle. Separated into three sections, David takes us on a journey through the whole foun [...]

    All I can say about this book is: wow. It's like Dr. Shoemaker took a handful of magick and put it in my head, which then exploded and turned into confetti, and there was a musical number involving Freddie Mercury descending from heaven with angel wings singing 'We are the Champions'. If you're wondering, it was a good book. On my favorites shelf, immediately.

    It is exactly like it says, Living Thelema. Quite possibly the first book, any new or experienced Thelemite should read in order to reassess themselves, on multiple levels/planes, in this modern world.

    Not for me

    Excellent introduction to the philosophical system of Thelema founded by Aliester Crowley. Shoemaker brings together Crowley's system and illustrates how it parallels multiple religions(the mystics), Jungian psychology, psychotherapy, alchemy, and practical application in a variety of contexts. A must read!

    Brilliant! It is not a book you simply finish and put away. You keep it handy and refer to it often - at least I have a feeling that is what I will be doing.

    a brilliant book written in a refreshing style on the actual process of living the thelemic lifestyle. its not just about the rituals, but how you awaken to your true self and live a different life.

    Very good introduction text, good practical exercises, covers fundamentals very well (granted I'm a relative novice so am somewhat poorly qualified to comment). Docked a star for weak insights into mental health (people with psychosis are not merely unprepared psychics FFS! and CBT is just reheated watered down stoicism through a new-age lens and is of dubious effectiveness).

    David Shoemaker’s Living Thelema is a very good book, particularly for those interested in Crowley’s writings especially as they concern the Knowledge and Conversation of One’s Holy Guardian Angel. The book is clear, well written and to the point. We admit that our own education in Jungian Psychology, which the author uses to illuminate many of Crowley’s ideas, helped quite a bit, but a background in psychology is not necessary for understanding this work. The author explains all the Jun [...]

    A good read for the hardcore thelemite, and possibly the beginner as well. Good, basic explanations of thelemic ideas. But a bit boring. And as with many authors who are auspiciously members of the "A.A." (not Alcoholics Anon), a bit on the dogmatic side, and even a little naive.
