Aleister Crowley and the Prana-Therapy

Since I created the Horus Centre and the Prana Centre as well underlining my relationship with Thelema, many people ask to me which is the link between pranatherapy (or pranic-healing) and Magick, Current 93 and Master Therion's teaching.
Well, let Him give you some clue...

This is the Dew of Immortality.
Let this go free, even as It will; thou art not its master,
but the vehicle of It.

(Aleister Crowley, The Book Of Lies)

The essence of Magick is to working upon phenomena by spiritual forms of energy…

… matter is nothing but a sensitive symbol of spiritual causes of phenomena.
At this point we may reach out a hand to the East and droll for a moment upon the general theory of Prana. Prana is usually translated “force”. Perhaps energy would be a better term. We cannot say exactly what it is, but it is that which distinguishes live protoplasm from dead protoplasm. It is that - by virtue of - in which things live and move and have their being. It is a form of energy by whose adroit manipulation one can affect the outward appearances, that is to say the physical phenomena which are its reflection in the grossest world of illusion, that is to say, the world we know.
To give a practical example. If a man is ill, they diagnose that the prana in his body is in some way out of order, and they attempt to cure him by teaching him to control his prana by means of various exercises, principally of breathing, for they claim tha the principle vehicle of prana is the breath.

(Aleister Crowley, The Elixir of Life: Our Magical Medicine)
