Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
Welcome to the website of Eleusis Encampment, a chartered body of the Ordo Templi Orientis, in the Valley of Knoxville, Tennessee. Our encampment, a spiritual fraternal organization, welcomes all aspiring Thelemites and seekers of the Gnosis who are of at least 18 years old, free, and of good report, regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation. The 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.
Our local body, as is the O.T.O., is dedicated in promoting the principles of Thelema, The Book of the Law, and it’s profound messages in the dawning of a New Aeon. This point of the New Aeon is risen from the principle understanding of “Do what thou wilt.” This is not an invitation to do whatever one pleases. This statement entails greater responsibility on the individual, to pursue his or her individual True Will, or purpose in Life in this incarnation, while leaving others to do the same in their own right, and without restriction or obstruction (liberty) of others unique path to his or her own True Will. This is the law of Thelema, and is the message proclaimed in The Book of the Law.
Please check through the website for more information about what we offer, more about the O.T.O., membership, and the philosophy of Thelema.
Love is the law, love under will.
