Group Overview: Aum. Ha. Lodge, a body of Ordo Templi Orientis (the Order of Eastern Templars, or the Order of the Temple of the East) . We are located in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois, and we are a fraternal Thelemic body dedicated to the high purpose of securing the Liberty of the Individual and his or her advancement in Light, Wisdom, Understanding, Knowledge, and Power through Beauty, Courage, and Wit, on the Foundation of Universal Brotherhood.

The order was founded in its modern form by Aleister Crowley - the most influential and famous occultist of all time.

Many wiccans, witches and pagans of all kind are members of the OTO and enjoy our monthly celebration of the Gnostic Mass and our Free classes, public rituals and socials.

Wiccan’s will see much in Thelema and Ceremonial Magick which were adopted by Gerald Gardner for Wicca and its rituals
.
Crowley had a huge contribution on Gerald Gardner, modern paganism and wicca. From wikipedia:

"After Crowley's death on 1 December 1947, Gardner was considered the highest ranking O.T.O. member in Europe, and contacted another English member Lady Frieda Harris (painter of the Thoth tarot deck) about continuing the work of the Order in the U.K. Lady Harris wrote to Karl Germer, Crowley's successor as head of O.T.O., on 2 January 1948 that Gardner was now the "Head of the O.T.O. in Europe". Gardner later met with Germer in New York to formulate further plans for the O.T.O. However Gardner's continuing ill health during this period led to the abandonment of the plans, and in 1951 he was replaced by Frederic Mellinger as the O.T.O's European representative. Dr Leo Ruickbie concluded that Aleister Crowley played a crucial role in inspiring Gardner to establish a new pagan religion.Ruickbie, Hutton, Rankine & d'Este, and Orpheus all argue that much of what has been published of Gardnerian Wicca, as Gardner's practice came to be known by, was derived from works by Aleister Crowley and also contains borrowings from other identifiable sources."

"Every man and every woman is a star." While the Law of Thelema can only be fulfilled through each individual's actions, nevertheless many worthy aspirants to the Great Work have a genuine need for information, guidance, fellowship, or the opportunity to assist their fellow aspirants and serve humanity. Such aspirants will find welcome in OTO.
