Membership of Cuchulain Oasis
Taking an initiation at Cuchulain Oasis automatically makes one a member of O.T.O. (or, in the case of the Minerval initiation, a ‘welcome guest’ of O.T.O.).
However, this does not automatically make one a member of Cuchulain Oasis.
In fact, O.T.O. initiates are not required to be members of any particular local body. Indeed, one may be a full member of O.T.O. without also being a member of a local body. Nevertheless, O.T.O. is a fraternal organization and a social order, and most initiates opt to become members of a local body. Cuchulain Oasis is the only duly chartered O.T.O. local body on the island of Ireland.
Membership of Cuchulain Oasis confers a number of privileges and benefits, including:
- Opportunities to attend initiation ceremonies performed by the Oasis
- Opportunities to fulfill officer roles in rituals performed by the Oasis, such as the initiation ceremonies of O.T.O. and The Gnostic Mass of E.G.C.
- Discounted admission to open Oasis events (e.g. lectures, talks)
- Regular notifications of Oasis events and business via email
- The right to attend quarterly Oasis business meetings
- An invitation to join the private online discussion forum of the Oasis
- Additional ad hoc benefits, such as discounts on items sold by the Oasis (e.g. books)
In order to become a member of Cuchulain Oasis, one must:
- Be a dues-current initiate member of O.T.O. (of at least the Minerval Degree)
- Be in good standing with both O.T.O. and Cuchulain Oasis (i.e. on bad report with neither)
- Pay monthly local dues to Cuchulain Oasis
Membership of Cuchulain Oasis is a privilege, not a right. O.T.O. initiates who wish to become members of Cuchulain Oasis are invited to directly address their request for membership to the Oasis Master via email@example.com
O.T.O. members in good standing who are not members of Cuchulain Oasis are of course still welcome to attend open Oasis events (at a partially discounted rate of admission) and may request invitations to private events such as initiations.
