“But ye, o my people, rise up & awake! Let the rituals be rightly performed with joy & beauty! There are rituals of the elements and feasts of the times.” Liber Al vel Legis II; 34-36.
Community membership is open to those who find our aims and intentions in accord with their own and who wish to participate in the celebration of the seasonal festivals and various other semi-public events hosted by the Order.
These are celebrated on the eight festivals of the solar year (the equinoxes, solstices and cross-quarter days) as well as on certain days of particular significance in Thelema.
Each of these seasonal festivals draws on local traditions, preserving that from the past which is still valid and revitalising it for the times in which we live.
A number of ‘rites of passage’ which form an important focus for a community, are also celebrated, such rites include celebrations for the naming of children, ceremonies of marriage, funeral rites etc. Marking these important events with joy and beauty and applying the insights of the Law of Thelema to these key experiences.
Events are also arranged focused on the reading of various Thelemic works and the general promotion of the Law of Thelema and the constitution and principles of The Irish Order of Thelema.
These events are co-ordinated by local ‘Groves’ which are the semi-public face of the local Lodges of The Irish Order of Thelema.
