Died January 9, 2018. Nema Andahadna was an occultist and writer best known for her magical writings about the Ma'atian current. She practiced and wrote about magick (magical working, as defined by Aleister Crowley) for over twenty-five years. From her experience with Thelemic magick (a system designed by Crowley), she developed her own system of magic called Maat Magick which has the aim of transforming the human race. Her writings have appeared in many publications, including the Cincinnati Journal of Ceremonial Magick, Aeon, Starfire, and others.

In 1974, she channelled a short book called Liber Pennae Praenumbra. Her ideas have been featured in the writings of Kenneth Grant.[1][2] In 1979, she co-founded the Horus-Maat Lodge. According to Donald Michael Kraig:

Nema has been one of the most influential occultists of the last quarter century although most occultists have never read her works. What Nema has done is influence those who have been writers and teachers. They, in turn, influenced the rest of us.[3]
