Blazing Star Oasis–Ordo Templi Orientis
Blazing Star Oasis is a chartered body of Ordo Templi Orientis, a fraternal organization dedicated to the promulgation of the Law of Thelema as heralded by The Book of the Law, received by Aleister Crowley.
Blazing Star Oasis is a beacon of Thelemic community and culture, radiating the Law of Thelema throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, California. It seeks to extend the Law of Thelema throughout the region through (1) celebrating sacramental and initiatory rites, (2) cultivating a community that recognizes the uniqueness of the individual centered around the shared ideals of individual liberty, self-discipline, self-knowledge, and universal brotherhood, and (3) establishing itself as a nexus of Thelemic culture and art.
Thelema proposes a new moral code for mankind, and challenges every person to claim freedom from external constraint and superstition by embracing personal responsibility, and the liberation that comes from the realization that each person is the sole authority in their own life.
