Si Valetis, Valeo
I am sorry to have to report that one of the most innovative Thelemites, occult thinkers and magician, Nema Andahadna has left her earthly body.
Nema was a student of the works of Aleister Crowley and joined Kenneth Grant’s Typhonian Order for several years. She avidly practiced he rituals with the magical community in Ohio. Later, she became a member of Bate Cabal which published the Cincinnati Journal of Ceremonial Magick, on July 4th, 1976, and are responsible for maintaining an archive of Black Moon Occult Archives.
Nema pioneered and contributed a considerable volume of ground-breaking work. Breaking the mold created by the status-quo which was, and still is, publishing the same material with different covers. Her writing is groundbreaking. She is the author of Maat Magick: a Guide to Self-Initiation; The Way of Mystery: Magick, Mysticism & Self-Transcendence; The Priesthood: Parameters and Responsibilities, and more.
Nema helped to found Horus-Maat Lodge. She was an Elder and High Priestess of the Circle of the Sacred Grove, Church of Pantheist Wicca, and an initiate of Adi Nath Tantra. She and Lyrus, her husband live in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains.
In a very unique way Nema Andahadna will be remembered as having made a huge contribution to the evolution of magick, which in my opinion puts her in the ranks with the likes of Fortune, Crowley and Achad.
She leaves a literary legacy for the future to enjoy.
Thank you, Nema. May the sea rock you gently
