The Initiatory Arm
The initiatory arm is responsible for conducting all initiations. It combines the grace and history of the various 19th century and early 20th century initiations with the vibrance and power of modern initiatory experiences in an environment that allows for both ordeal and informed consent.
Initiators must have training in consent, safety and some capability at organizing or executing prop building and theatrical staging. TTO presents workshops where you can learn the skills to be an initiator.
TTO presents "The Thelemic Initiations" beginning in June of 2020. This entirely new set of initiations draws on the rich history and symbolism of past initiatory traditions, while presenting a relevant and modern experience.
While organized initiating bodies have abandoned "ordeal" elements because of concerns regarding hazing, ordeals have become a strong and consensual element of wider pagan and magical culture.
