NOTOCON X Kicks Off Today! Busy Schedule!

Today marks the first day of Notocon with a series of Salons and lectures as well as meetings of various governing bodies of the U.S. Grand Lodge of Ordo Templi Orientis followed by an opening reception. The days to follow feature still more presentations, book signings, a celebration of the Gnostic Mass, a group luncheon and formal dinner. And we’ll be there in the thick of it, perhaps reporting, or perhaps just reveling in the fellowship and fun! Here’s a brief listing of the schedule of events. If you visit the schedule posted at the website []clicking on any of these listings will give you an expanded view and detailed description of that event in question.
