Meet the OTO Wednesday, Jan 9 2008 

It seems the dreaded norovirus has struck and half of the Oasis members are feeling somewhat under the weather.

This means that there will not be a Gnostic Mass this Saturday after all but we will still be going ahead with an Oasis meeting.

The body master and I are still mostly healthy (so far!) and we will be holding an informal ‘meet the OTO’ style event for anyone that would like to come along from 4pm onwards.

This will be an informal social gathering for all members and those seeking to join us with experienced members in attendance to answer any questions you may have. For existing members there will be plenty of good food and company and the opportunity to discuss magick and the occult with brethren.

We do hope to still see several of you on Saturday afternoon and those of you will the illness all get better very soon.
Contact the Oasis secretary for more information and to attend this event.

Gnostic Mass Run-Through Wednesday, Oct 10 2007

There will be a small feast for all attendees afterwards, please along some food and drink to share.

Abramelin Oil Blending Class Friday, Aug 31 2007 

On Saturday 8th September at Tamesa Oasis, there will be the opportunity to create your own Abramelin Oil for anointing magickal weapons and creating Cakes of Light.

Crowley wrote:
The Holy Oil is the Aspiration of the Magician; it is that which consecrates him to the performance of the Great Work; and such is its efficacy that it also consecrates all the furniture of the Temple and the instruments thereof. It is also the grace or chrism; for this aspiration is not ambition; it is a quality bestowed from above. For this reason the Magician will anoint first the top of his head before proceeding to consecrate the lower centres in their turn (…) It is the pure light translated into terms of desire. It is not the Will of the Magician, the desire of the lower to reach the higher; but it is that spark of the higher in the Magician which wishes to unite the lower with itself. – Book 4 Ch. 5

Recipes will be provided for several different blends, including that of Aliester Crowley, S. L MacGregor Mathers and a recipe from the Bible which Abramelin oil was based on.

The class will begin at 4pm. All materials will be provided and each person will be able to take away a small vial of their own blend created on the day. There will be a charge of £5 to cover the cost of these materials.

There will be a Mass of Baphomet after this class, if you would like to stay for this then please bring food to share with the group in between.

Mass of Baphomet Friday, Aug 31 2007 

On Saturday 8th September Tamesa Oasis will be hosting a Mass of Baphomet.

This is a group ritual taken from the book ‘Abrahadabra’ by Rodney Orpheus.

No previous group ritual experience is required, it is a simple ritual that is easy for a small group to perform to dramatic effect.

This ritual was extremely successful and enjoyed by the group last time it was performed and we hope it will be again.

We will begin at 6pm, please arrive for a prompt start and where comfortable clothing.

Before this Mass there will be a class on blending Oil of Abramelin. If you would like to attend the full day at Tamesa then please brings some food to share with the group between the the two events.
