  • Magick 101 -- The Templar Legacy with Vere & Lita Chappell/Equinox Ceremony

    Dear Members and Friends of Golden Lotus, Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. Please join us at Golden Lotus Lodge on Saturday, March 23rd, at 2:00 p.m. for an engaging and illuminating account of the history of the Knights Templar and their legacy, presented by Lita and Vere Chappell. Preceding this event will be a special Equinox Ceremony to ring in the Vernal Equinox and the beginning of Spring! The Knights Templar were founded in 1118 CE to protect European pilgrims traveling to Jerusalem after it had been conquered in the crusades. For the next 200 years they grew in power, wealth, and importance, and built numerous castles, commanderies, and even entire towns throughout Europe and the Middle East. In 1307 the Templars were arrested on trumped-up charges so that the Pope and the King of France could seize their wealth and lands. But the romantic legend of the warrior monks has persisted to the present day, and has inspired many—including the founders of Ordo Templi Orientis. This presentation will be richly illustrated with photographs of Templar sites from Lita and Vere’s travels in Israel, France, England and Spain. The Equinox Ceremony will begin at 2 p.m. We will have a short break afterwards to mingle and chat as we set up for the lecture. A donation of $10 is requested to attend. We look forward to seeing you there! Love is the law, love under will.

  • Magick 101 -- True Will: What Is It? With Frater SLQ

    Golden Lotus Lodge

    Dear Members and Friends of Golden Lotus, Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. Please join us on Saturday, February 16th, at 3:00 p.m. for our next Magick 101 Class presented by Frater SLQ. The concept of "True Will" is of paramount importance to Thelema. Without a solid understanding of True Will, magick is a hit-or-miss proposition. The first task of every Thelemite should be to discover his or her True Will. Although each individual must accomplish this discovery for him or herself, the O.T.O. may assist by providing a supportive environment and tools for the magician to use in his or her quest. To this end, Frater SLQ presents a workshop entitled "True Will: What It Is, How To Discover It, and What To Do With It." We will cover the the theory of True Will in terms of Thelemic doctrine and psychology, explore practical techniques for discovering it, and discuss what to do with it once you've found it. Valuable for beginners and experienced magicians alike. A $10 donation is requested for this event. Please plan on arriving early. We hope to see you then! Love is the law, love under will.
