Knights Templar Oasis, OTO, in the Valley of Salem will be hosting a Virtual Presentation by Vere Chappell: Solar-Phallicism Today. It’ll be held Friday June 19 commencing at 8:30PM EDST. The FB Event page states:
The spiritual and magical system of Ordo Templi Orientis is rooted in late 19th century conceptions of solar-phallic religion which may appear dated or even obsolete in light of our modern sensibilities. The underlying principles, however, are universal, and are obscured only by shortcomings of our language and understanding. In this presentation we will examine the true meaning of solar-phallicism and its relevance and importance to humanity in our current era.
