Star Sapphire Lodge has been chartered by United States Grand Lodge Ordo Templi Orientis to serve the Greater Los Angeles area through the promulgation of the Law of Thelema through initiatory, ecclesiastical, and other services.
We offer a variety of events, some of which are only open to members of O.T.O., and many other events that are open to the general public. If you wish to see an upcoming list of our events, please visit our events page.
For more information about O.T.O., visit http://oto-usa.org/oto/. For questions about Star Sapphire Lodge, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Membership in Ordo Templi Orientis
Membership in O.T.O. means becoming an initiate member of O.T.O., and initiation is available to every man and woman who is free, of full age (at least 18 years old), and of good report, which generally speaking means finding two members who are at least First Degree initiates to sponsor you. In order to establish your “good report,” it is best to start attending some of our events, where you can meet members who may wish to get to know you prior to sponsoring you.
Initiate membership begins at the degree of Minerval. The Minerval Degree is an introductory degree designed to, in part, provide initiates with an opportunity to decide whether on or not to become a full member of O.T.O., which is irrevocably established at First Degree (I°).
Local Body Membership and Man of Earth Initiation
“All Brethren shall be exceedingly punctual in the payment of Lodge Dues. This is to take precedence of all other calls upon the purse.”– Liber CI
We require that all individuals seeking to obtain initiation within the Man of Earth Triad at Star Sapphire Lodge become and remain members of a local body.
Not only are membership dues critical to financing our operators, we have found diligent observance of this practice integral to creating and maintaining a stakeholder culture where all members are equally invested in our success.
Members 3 or more months in arrears must pay at least the current plus two additional months of dues to become locally dues current. Note: this policy exists throughout all Southern California O.T.O. bodies.
