Friday Night Magick: Initiation (Part 1) – Friday 20th May
Initiation ceremonies and rituals of initiation are a long-standing human institution and are found in practically every form of human society. This Friday Night Magick class will explore the historical background and essential nature of the magical initiation ceremonies of Ordo Templi Orientis. This class is open to all members of OTO and to invited guests of the Order.
OTO is a voluntary organization so we make the following suggestions for donations from attendees:
- €5 for initiates/unwaged
- €10 for non-initiates
This will be the first in a series of two classes on Initiation – the first class will be historical and theoretical, while the second will be primarily practical.
Patrick Everitt will present on the historical development of magical and esoteric initiation ceremonies in the West.
Rodney Orpheus will present on the initiatory system of Ordo Templi Orientis, its significance, and degree structure.
These two presentations will be followed by an informal Q & A session, moderated by Brian Conniffe, during which both initiators and initiates of Ordo Templi Orientis will give their own perspective on initiation and what it has meant for them. This is a great opportunity for anyone with an interest in OTO, or magical initiations generally, to engage with OTO initiates of varying levels of experience.
