Agapé resumes print publication

Agapé is back!  After a long hiatus to reestablish our printing and distribution platform, the official organ of U.S.G.L. will begin appearing in your mailbox on an ongoing quarterly schedule.  To start, all U.S.G.L. members will receive two back issues containing important policy updates and clarifications.  The next issue, scheduled for August/September, will contain new content and restart quarterly distribution.  The Agapé team is excited to bring new articles, perspective, art, poetry, and important information from U.S.G.L. officers back to a timely and pertinent schedule.  Remember,Agapé is always looking for submissions.

Outer Head of the Order elected

On October 10, 2014ev, the five national Supreme and Holy Kings of the Grand Lodges of Ordo Templi Orientis (United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Croatia, and Italy) convened in Florence, Italy to elect the Outer Head of the Order. Their decision was unanimous: Hymenaeus Beta will continue in that role. Now, however, he holds the office in full accordance with the international bylaws of O.T.O. This marks the end of another transitional period in our Order’s progress toward full implementation of Crowley’s vision. Hail to the O.H.O., hail to the Five Kings, and hail to the O.T.O.!
