Deus Est Homo - Entheogenic Apotheosis in the New Aeon Thursday, March 10 at 8:00 PM
Free to dues current members of Star Sapphire Lodge. $15 for general admission.
“I am the Snake that giveth Knowledge & Delight and bright glory, and stir the hearts of men with drunkenness. To worship me take wine and strange drugs whereof I will tell my prophet, & be drunk thereof! They shall not harm ye at all. It is a lie, this folly against self. The exposure of innocence is a lie. Be strong, o man! lust, enjoy all things of sense and rapture: fear not that any God shall deny thee for this.” – Liber AL Ch. 2 v. 22 Since the dawn of recorded history, humanity has sought to obtain direct intimate communion with the Divine through the ritual use of various “entheogenic” (generating the Divine within) sacraments and practices. The secret initiatory rites of many varied ancient religious cultures and traditions involved the use of exogenous entheogenic compounds. Aleister Crowley was both a proponent and practitioner of experimentation with pharmacological sacraments and both Liber AL vel Legis (The Book of the Law) and Crowley’s subsequent commentaries support the responsible, practical applications of such sacraments within the individual Thelemite’s magical process. While many of these ancient practices have been either hidden or long forgotten, there are certain traditions that still employ the use of an entheogenic Eucharist to impart the secrets of the gnosis of apotheosis – the true knowledge of God awakening within the collective human consciousness. As the New Aeon unfolds, it becomes increasingly necessary for human kind to recognize the fundamental importance of our unified state of existence. Toward that end, the entheogenic experience provides us with a unique opportunity and ability to recognize and realize that unified state of universal consciousness, traditionally known as Samadhi, that intimately connects us all, to each other, to all of nature and to God (or Source) itself. How can the revelations that the Entheogenic experience engenders serve us in the process of the realization and establishment of the age old vision of the Universal Brother/Sisterhood of all Humankind? Join Frater NChSh HKMH (Merrill Ward) for an engaging presentation and discussion exploring these ideas and possibilities. Doors Open: 7:30 PM Presentation: 8 PM Admission: Free to dues current members of Star Sapphire Lodge. $15 for general admission. Public: Anyone may attend the event; no member sponsorship required. All are welcome! Disclaimer: Ordo Templi Orientis and its affiliates do not endorse the use of illicit substances
