    KRSMA – The New Charismatic Indian Offering

    The setting was a plane in Europe. There was an Indian gentleman sitting on it.

    Thelema: The Will of God

    Thelema is Greek for “God of Will” and this is pretty much what must have helped the Webbs install their wine dreams on their new farm (which used ot be an orchard earlier), back in the early 1980s. And that, by the way, is a Phoenix on their logo, not a duck or eagle or […]
