Key word "investors"  They have plans to make money off anyone Wiccan who wants to see the museum they will build.  Maybe they will have ceremonies and charge people to participate.

Thelemite. Not wicca. Well actually anyone who's into the occult might want to visit the place.

Oh, I thought Wicca was based on Alister Crowley's work.  Who started Wicca?

OK.  I looked it up, someone named Gardener started it in England.  I think the U.S. people use composites and call them incorrectly by something famous.

I know most of the people involved in this project, and it is NOT a money making scheme. Not at all. It is being done as a labour of love.

So are you saying that they think he was a great man, and that they are believers in his teachingxs of the occult.

Do you know of the names of the actual investors?  I'd love to know who they are. :)

Oops I did manage to find a list of the founder/trustees, I'd still like to know who's paying for it (apart from the board)  https://www.boleskinehouse.org/our-contributors/

What a lovely old house this will be when finished and brought back to life.

Alesiter Crowley, certainly wasn't Wiccan he claims he wasn't a Satanist. He was a man who modified his beliefs to form his own religion Thelema.

Alas, I cannot reveal that information. It is private, and not mine to divulge.
What I can say is that, like myself, they are Thelemites, and that their intentions are good, not mere greed.
To Thelemites, Boleskine is a sort of Kibbla, a place with historical and spiritual significance, so if anything I would call the project philanthropic and "religious" in nature.

I can think of many investments to make other than fixing up a dead satanists old home.  What a waste of money.

He wasn't a satanist.  Why is it christians claim any belief they don't understand is "satanic",  absolutely idiotic.

Consider it the same as investing in restoring a church you and your group hold dear.  Since it isn't your money you don't need to worry about it.

He wasn't a Satanist. He was a crazy drug fiend who thought he talked to aliens.
