Friday Night Magick: Qabalah in Theory & Practice (14th August)

Tree of Life David TonatoAn interactive introduction to the magical Qabalah.

The Qabalah has grown from its roots in Jewish mysticism to become one of the foundations of Hermetic Magick. The modern Tarot is based on it, as are the Degrees and Grades of many magical Orders, such as the Golden Dawn and OTO.

In this class we will present the basic concepts of Qabalah, and begin an exploration of the Tree of Life.

Presented by Brian Conniffe & Rodney Orpheus at our Dublin location. For further into please contact OTO Ireland.

The Magick of Aleister Crowley – Friday 26th June

Aleister Crowley PortraitOrdo Templi Orientis in Ireland presents:

The Magick of Aleister Crowley

An introductory class on Aleister Crowley and his magical system, presented by Patrick Everitt

Aleister Crowley holds a unique place in the history of Western magick. Although his name is well-known, his work has been frequently misinterpreted in the past. However in recent years he has begun to receive recognition as a seminal figure in the world of occultism, and his work and magick are being re-examined and welcomed by a new generation of esoteric scholars.

This class will provide an overview of Crowley’s magical system of Thelema and act an an introduction to a forthcoming monthly series.

Patrick Everitt has been a student of magick for several years and is currently doing a Masters Degree in Western Esotericism at the University of Amsterdam. He has been an initiate of Ordo Templi Orientis in Ireland since 2012.

A donation of €5 is suggested to help the work of OTO. (Free to OTO members)

This event will be held in our location in Dublin on Friday 26th June, 18.30-21.30. Please contact info@oto-ie.org for details.

Public Lecture & Workshop: Thelemic Boot Camp on April 4th

Robe of LightThelema means “Will” in Greek, and those who study it develop personal practice in order to manifest their Will in their daily lives. While this can take any form, there are certain rituals and instructions which are known to give measurable effect in a short time.

This “Boot Camp” consists of using the daily four-fold adoration of the Sun, known as Liber Resh, and a pentagram ritual to bring oneself into connection with the Will, known as Liber Reguli, or the Mark of the Beast Ritual. The set concludes with pranayama and mantrayoga, which help to still the mind and actualise goals.

Sef Salem, Past Master of Calix Sanctus Oasis O.T.O. in Glastonbury, UK, will lead the group through a thorough explanation of these key practices, and then hold a group discussion on the development of a mantra for pursuit of one’s Will.

After a short break, the group will focus on the Mark of the Beast ritual, and take part together in an adapted form of this ritual from the Grimoire of Aleister Crowley by Rodney Orpheus, ranking O.T.O. member for Ireland.

Please contact us for more information.
