Dr. Richard Kaczynski recently posted to his FB page regarding the publication of a new book of Notocon proceedings:
“Fire of Motion,” the proceedings of NOTOCON X (Austin, 2015), will be launched at this year’s NOTOCON in Orlando, FL, on August 11-13 (http://xi.notocon.org/). Thereafter it will be available through Amazon or whatever bookseller you prefer, including–for the first time–in Kindle format. Edited and typeset by Richard Kaczynski, with cover design by Frater Julianus and proofreading by Marlene Cornelius.
From the back cover:
“Fire of Motion” offers a selection of papers from the tenth biennial National Ordo Templi Orientis Conference (NOTOCON) of the United States Grand Lodge of O.T.O., held in the Valley of Austin, Texas, in 2015 EV. The papers in this volume cover a wide range of esoteric traditions including: practical matters such as developing a life-long magical practice, the magick of food and feasts, working with the goddess Hekate, and exercises to better understand and cope with death; mundane matters like what to do and how to prepare when approached by the media; historical papers on Rosicrucian orders, the notion of Secret Chiefs, and Deputy Grand Master Lon Milo DuQuette’s reflections on his forty years in the Order; and, of course, Saturday evening’s keynote address by the United States National Grand Master Sabazius. Together these papers represent some of best modern practical and scholarly work available on Ordo Templi Orientis, Thelema, and the magick of Aleister Crowley.
The first NOTOCON conference took place in 1997 EV in Akron, Ohio, and has since been held on alternate years in different cities around the United States. <i>Fire of Motion</i> is the fifth collection of papers from the national conference to be made available, following the inaugural volume “Beauty & Strength” for the 2007 EV conference.
Ordo Templi Orientis is an international fraternal order of men and women devoted to the pursuit of individual liberty, the study of magick, and the promulgation of the Law of Thelema. Founded in the early twentieth century, it has been shaped by such leading lights as Carl Kellner, Theodor Reuss, Aleister Crowley, Karl Germer and Grady Louis McMurtry.
