Aleister Crowley (1875-1947) a.k.a. Kwaw Li was an English poet, essayist, magician, and mystic. In 1905 and 1906 he walked across China with his pregnant wife, during which time he studied the Taoist wisdom. The seed sown at that time blossomed during his stay in America in 1918, while he was living and meditating in the wilderness of the Hudson River Valley. During this time Crowley translated the Qingjing Jing, one of the major scriptures of the Taoist Lingbao tradition. Introduction "The Hermit of Esopus Island" by Max Demian reveals new insights into the significance of Crowley's Esopus Island retirement in the context of his magical and mystical career.
