These two vloggers are not only making videos for beginners, they are beginners themselves. In these videos they have just discovered Thelema and share their discoveries of how Thelema is changing their lives. While we can learn a great deal from experienced teachers, young teachers have a lot to contribute – they are relatable for other beginners and have fresh insights for those of us who have practiced for a while.
Deadboylife promised a video series that only seems to have two episodes so far, both made in 2010, and both thoughtful and sincere.

Glad to see Calaelen is continuing to make videos – hope Deadboylife returns to them!
