Transmitting the Fire

Initiation in the Work of Kenneth Grant

Defined most succinctly as “the journey within”, initiation is a work of fundamental transformation which moves beyond the distinction between “inner” and “outer”. In Thelemic terms, initiation is the discovery of the True Will, a dynamic realisation which transforms not only the initiate but more crucially his or her relationship with the universe. In this talk, Michael Staley discusses the approach to initiation which can be found in Kenneth Grant’s work, as well as his initiatory experiences arising from involvement with that work across the years. Michael Staley has been a member of the Typhonian Order for more than thirty years now. He is the editor and publisher of Starfire, an occasional Thelemic journal which first appeared in 1986. The founder of Starfire Publishing, he has been for many years the publisher of Kenneth Grant.
