The U.S. Grand Lodge Strategic Plan was adopted by the Executive Council on April 15, 2007 e.v. To “promulgate Thelema and Great Principles of the Order” is among the Strategic Initiatives listed. One Objective included under this heading is to “support Thelemic speakers, authors, artists, musicians, filmmakers, etc.” in their efforts to promote O.T.O. and Thelemic culture.
To this end the Education Committee has recruited speakers/teacher available to present at more public or specially targeted venues. Last year this list of presenters was updated: all listed have confirmed their willingness to participate; revised the catalogue of talks they can offer; spelled out their requirements for presenting, as regards travel and housing expenses (most speakers are happy to stay with local Brethren and just seek to have their travel expenses covered – utilizing speakers who live in or near your Valley keeps expenses to a minimum) . You’ll find the updated list here: http://education.oto-usa.org/speakers/
This program is intended to complement other UGSL sponsored events such as Kaaba Colloquium, Advanced Initiator Training and Pastoral Counseling Workshop, which are all aimed at OTO initiates. These events are intended to be more accessible potential non-initiate attendees, being staged outside of Local Bodies customary meeting spaces in “more public or specially targeted venues.”
All Local Body Officers are encouraged to consider participating in this program. If you have any questions or need any help in getting started, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
