Group Overview: Roar of Rapture Encampment was chartered by Ordo Templi Orientis Grand Lodge U.S.A. in January, 2015. Our mission is to promote the doctrine and practices of the philosophical and religious system known as Thelema through initiatory and sacramental rites, education, instruction, social events and community service within the Greater Omaha area. We provide monthly private and public events such as group meditation, various classes and study groups, seasonal rites and relevant collaboration with the wonderful Omaha Pagan community.
The members of Roar of Rapture are diverse with a wide range of knowledge and experiences which aid in the understanding and aligning of ones-self with the Law of Thelema. We are excited to bring this abundance of knowledge out into Omaha. We offer a welcoming and enthusiastic environment to promote introspection, creativity and knowledge resulting in the growth of the individual to become suited for the embodiment of Light, Wisdom, Understanding, Knowledge, and Power through Beauty, Courage, and Wit, on the Foundation of Universal Brotherhood.
The letters O.T.O. stand for Ordo Templi Orientis, the Order of Oriental Templars, or Order of the Temple of the East. O.T.O. is 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.
Ordo Templi Orientis is the first of the great Old Ćon orders to accept The Book of the Law, received by Aleister Crowley in 1904 EV. This book proclaims a New Ćon in human thought, culture and religion. The Ćon arises from a single supreme injunction: the Law of Thelema, which is Do what thou wilt.
U.S. Grand Lodge is the governing body of O.T.O. in the United States. It is the most populous and active branch of O.T.O., with many local bodies spread throughout the country.
The religion known as Thelema was founded in 1904 by the English poet and mystic Aleister Crowley (1875 – 1947) , who is regarded as its prophet. Those who follow the path of Thelema are called Thelemites.
Thelema emphasizes individualism, and the uniqueness of each person’s Will. As a result, it is very difficult to make blanket statements about its nature or (still more so) the natures of its adherents. Even the label “religion” fits Thelema awkwardly in some contexts — it is in other senses a philosophy and a way of life, while also overlapping with the set of practices and symbols commonly called “Magick”.
