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.!

Local body publication anthology

U.S. Grand Lodge is proud to announce the long-awaited publication of Words of Power: An Anthology of Writings from O.T.O.

It can be ordered effective immediately.
 
“Many local bodies, in addition to their ritual and social activities, publish their own periodicals featuring columns, essays, poetry, fiction, and artwork produced by their members.  These serve to showcase the talents of the local members, and allow them to share their researches, experiences, and insights.We are hopeful that this collection will help illustrate the vibrancy of intellectual life in modern Thelemic culture at its most basic level.” – Sabazius X°
