Gnostic Mass - Baptism & Confirmation Sunday, May 29 at 2:00 AM
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. Star Sapphire Lodge invites you to a celebration of the Gnostic Mass, the central ritual of Ordo Templi Orientis. We will be offering the rites of Baptism and Confirmation into Ecclesia Gnostica Catholica (E.G.C.) on this day. If you are interested in obtaining either of these rites, contact dmaster@starsapphire-oto.org for additional information. We will have a champagne toast and light refreshments after mass. Arrival time is 2 PM and we will be getting started at 2:30. There is a suggested donation of $10.00 to help cover the cost of renting and maintaining our temple facility. Love is the law, love under will.
It is the Law to give: Practical promulgation at Pride Sunday, May 29 at 5:00 PM
Event is free and open to all initiates in good standing.
"All this and a book to say how thou didst come hither and a reproduction of this ink and paper for ever -- for in it is the word secret & not only in the English -- and thy comment upon this the Book of the Law shall be printed beautifully in red ink and black upon beautiful paper made by hand; and to each man and woman that thou meetest, were it but to dine or to drink at them, it is the Law to give. Then they shall chance to abide in this bliss or no; it is no odds. Do this quickly!" - AL III:39 Ordo Templi Orientis is not a secret society. Our job is to be a visible beacon of Thelema, drawing in those who can benefit from our message of light, life, love, and liberty. Star Sapphire Lodge will have a table at the LA Pride festival on June 10-12 so that we can share our gifts with the community. Lodge members will be on hand to greet visitors and answer their questions. But how should we answer those questions? What do you say when a complete stranger walks up to you and asks "So, what is this all about?" How do you explain Thelema and OTO to someone who has never heard of Aleister Crowley or magick before? Join us for a workshop on how to explain the Law without preaching, and how to pitch OTO without creeping people out. You might even find some of these same techniques work on your friends, family, and coworkers. This workshop will be taking place after our celebration of the Gnostic Mass. There is no cost to attend and all initiates in good standing are welcome to attend. About our speaker: Craig Berry joined Ordo Templi Orientis in 1987. He has held a variety of leadership positions in the Order, at the local level (Master of Baphomet Lodge and Deputy Master of LVX Oasis, among others) and the national level (Bishop of EGC, member of the Grand Tribunal, USGL Internet Secretary). Despite his appearance of leading an entirely virtual existence, he does occupy a physical body in Los Angeles. Among his personal areas of research are the role of humor in magick and the culture and philosophy of the ancient Aztecs.
