The Official Swirling Star Lodge Blog & Information Spot
Gnostic Mass - Saturday, May 18, 2013EV
There is a suggested donation of $5 per person to help cover the cost of performing the ritual. Please RSVP by Friday, May 17, if you plan to attend. RSVPs can be emailed to email@example.com.
Aleister Crowley described the Gnostic Mass as the central ritual, public and private, of the O.T.O. For more information on the Gnostic Mass please see www.gnosticmass.org.
Kabbalah Knights Class Series - Saturday, May 25, 2013EV
The overall goal of KK, however, is to develop leaders. There is no better way to solidify your knowledge of something than to teach it to someone else. Eventually, each KK student will take what he or she has learned and teach it to a new student of the Kabbalah. The next class will take place on Saturday, May 25, 2013.
Kabba Colloquium - Saturday, May 31 - June 2, 2013EV
Kaaba Colloquium is dedicated to helping active O.T.O. initiates increase their leadership knowledge and skills, to discuss strategies, tactics, and advice on leadership roles and activities, and to meet with successful and prominent leaders from all over the nation. While Kaaba is aimed at current and aspiring local body officers, it is open to any member in good standing, of the I° or above, who wishes to attend.
Kabba Colloquium will take place in New Orleans, LA, Saturday May 31 - Monday, June 2, 2013. If you have questions about Kaaba Colloquium, please contact the Kaaba committee at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the event website, http://kaaba.oto-usa.org.

First and foremost, we would like to express our earnest and heartfelt gratitude to Swirling Star’s amazing mentor, as well as the officers and members for the relentless service (and in some instances, blood and tears) each of you has given throughout the years.
The launch of our website marked a very exciting turning point for us. On our site you can find information about upcoming events and functions, check the calendar for event information and contact us with any questions you may have. We will also be featuring Swirling Star’s bi-annual newsletter, The Chariot, on this site. Members are encouraged to share their experiences in Magick by contributing to The Chariot.
Founded in 1999, Swirling Star has been operating consistently for more than a decade. We meet regularly to observe the Gnostic Mass, perform initiations, celebrate ritual, observe Holy Days and participate in workshops, lectures and classes. Please check our blog and Event Calendar to stay abreast of what is going on at Swirling Star Lodge.
If you are interested in joining the Order please contact the Swirling Star Lodge Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org.

In the Center of the Fire: A Memoir of the Occult, 1966-1989
A stone's throw away from The Velvet Underground and Andy Warhol's infamous "Factory," William Burroughs' "bunker," and the legendary Chelsea Hotel was a scene far more esoteric than perhaps even they could have imagined.
