Leila Waddell is one of the most fascinating figures of the early 20th century occult circles. She was associated with Aleister Crowley, The Golden Dawn and other related groups. She was a very talented musician, as well an accomplished writer, magician, and a founding member of the original company of the Rites of Eleusis. In October and November of 1910, Crowley starred Waddell and other members of his magical order the Argenteum Astrum, in his series of dramatic planetary-based magical rites, the Rites of Eleusis, at London’s Caxton Hall.
A powerful woman, versed in the sacred arts.
