Period of Silence


As of March 20th 2014 e.v., the A.’.A.’. went in to a Period of Silence. This period lasts for five years and the A.’.A.’. will emerge back into Speech on March 20th 2019 e.v.


  1. The A.’. A.’. near me is about to end their Period of Silence next year. They are associated with an SOTO lodge though, as opposed to Caliphate OTO. I wonder if that is what makes the difference.

  2. Shoemaker lineage- no mention of silence, Eshelman lineage- no mention of silence, Eales lineage- silence 4-8-14 until 2019, Bersson lineage- Silence ends 4-8-15, Gunther lineage- no mention of silence, Cornelius/McMURTRY lineage- not accepting applicants: not defined as silence. Not a comprehensive listing, but it gets the idea across.

  3. Also, an interesting claim by Eshelman that I ran into… He said periods of silence were a personal habit of A.C., and they were applied to the publication of the Equinox, but never, traditionally, impacted initiation of students and probationers. The implementation is purely subject to the interpretation of the head of the lineage.

  4. Carey. No lineage is truly closed for business … nor are any of the IT (Independent Thelema) groups. Try watching the original David Carradine TV Pilot for Kung Fu and ‘do like the kid does’ …. stand outside the Temple in the rain for a few days and let ’em know you’re serious. 🙂

  5. Actually, it was March 23rd (?) @ the Vernal Equinox that our Period of Silence began. And it would be approximately, March 21 in 2019 (the Vernal Equinox) that we would return to a Period of Speech. And remember, our line celebrates the Holy Days of Thelema on April 1,2, and 3 (the actual dates that Crowley transmitted Liber AL).
