Jane Wolf e Crowley

Jane Wolf conviveu com Aleister Crowley nos anos 20, residindo na Abadia de Thelema, em Cefalú.

Foi admitida por Crowley como Probacionista em 1921, em Cefalú, porém, demorou anos até vir a saber, por uma carta do mesmo, que havia saído deste grau tornando-se Neófita. Ela adimitiu, posteriormente à morte de seu instrutor, que tinha dúvidas se realmente havia alcançado a sephirah de Yesod.

Uma discípula chamada Phyllis Seckler (Soror Meral), deu continuidade a sua obra fundando na década de 70, o College of Thelema, um ramo da A.·. A.·. ligado a O.T.O. Californiana, ou Califado.
