Practical Insights Oct. 2017

“O.T.O. draws strength from diversity; we welcome the participation and friendship of Thelemites of all sexes, genders, “races,” and ethnic groups, and from all cultures; and we are committed to opposing their unfair treatment, within and without the Order.”
U.S. Grand Lodge Supreme Grand Council Statement

 

 

The Charter that Rebooted the O.T.O.

Blazing Star Oasis in Oakland hosted “A Day with Brandy Williams” last month. While I was there I was thrilled to discover they are holding the Thelema Lodge charter! This was one of the documents Aleister Crowley gave to Grady McMurtry certifying him as Grand Master of the Ordo Templi Orientis. Grady was able to use the documents to ensure the order continued its work in the world. If you’re interested there’s lots more detail here: O.T.O. History and here: Charter of Thelema Lodge.

Library of the Month

Seattle Central Library was designed by Rem Koolhaas. It’s a green building with interesting nooks and common spaces. The contemporary look suits the library’s updated mission to bring people and ideas together.
