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. Local Body Publications.  This is a selection of articles culled from the magazines produced by local bodies of the Ordo Templi Orientis, U.S.A. issued by United States Grand Lodge. 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°

Map of local bodies not working properly

Due to what appears to be a problem outside our control, the map of local bodies on the U.S. Grand Lodge website is not working properly. Body locations are still visible, but they are not color-coded by type, nor are they clickable to get the body name and other information. You can still use the list of local body names and locations on that same page or the full directory of contact information.
