Mithras Ritual Tuesday, Oct 16 2007 

All O.T.O and E.G.C members are invited to join us on Saturday 8th December 2007 in performing a group ritual adapted from a ritual from the 4th century AD to the pre-Christian solar deity Mithras.

The temple will be transformed into a Mithraeum, the traditional temple of Mithras worship centered around the Tauroctony, an artistic depiction of the god slaying the sacred bull from which wheat and seeds came forth and created all the loveliness of nature.

Tamesa Oasis 1st Anniversary Sunday, Oct 14 2007 

Saturday 24th November 2007 marks one year since the first meeting of Tamesa Oasis.

The name Tamesa comes from the original Celtic name for the river Thames and means ‘the dark one’ or ‘dark Isis’.

To celebrate this we will be performing a group invocation of Isis from an original ritual used at Cefalu. Since it is an Isis invocation, there will be an Egyptian theme to the proceedings and attendants are encouraged to wear Egyptian themed clothing for the day.

Please come along from 4pm, we will be having a small celebratory feast following the ritual for which contributions would be very welcome. It wouldn’t be an anniversary without cake and balloons now would it!

Mass of Baphomet Saturday, Oct 13 2007 

On Saturday 10th November 2007 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.

There will be an opportunity after the ritual to share food and drink, please bring a contribution for this if you would like to join us.
