Irish Order of Thelema


The Irish Order of Thelema has drawn from the historical and magical traditions of Ireland synthesizing them with the precepts of the Law of Thelema to create a new and unique order.

This provides a focal point for a community united by a common interest in the principles of individual liberty, the welfare of the human race, and the exploration, application and celebration of ‘The Book of the Law.’ It has organized its rites according to the Law of Thelema, which is: “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.”

The main ethical principle of this law is that each human being has his or her own definite objective in life. Each has every right to fulfill this purpose and none to do anything else. As it is written, “thou hast no right but to do thy will. Do that and no other shall say nay.”

In their view, it is thus a law of freedom, but freedom is a two-edged sword: liberty and responsibility come hand in hand.
