Aum Ha Lodge Chicago has planned a series of public and OTO member events to Celebrate the Three Days Of The Writing Of The Book Of The Law.
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

Aum. Ha. Lodge is honored to commemorate the 107th year Anniversary of the writing of The Book of the Law with a weekend of Thelemic experiences. Join us on April 8th, 9th, and 10th for Classes, Rituals, Feasts, and Initiations; as we celebrate the three days of the writing of our central Holy Book in the Windy City.

At 4 A.M. (The Noon hour in the city of Cario) each morning of these three holy days, the Master of Aum. Ha. Lodge will bless the Temple by opening its doors to the public and reading from each of the three chapters of Liber Al vel Legis. A tradition with our Lodge Master; it is a reading that only the most disciplined of Thelemites will attend. However, for the rest of us; each of these three days are filled with events, rituals, and classes for all individuals of all levels of Thelemic interest.

Chicago’s Three Days “RANDOM ACTS OF ART”
This event begins at Noon and will last approximately 2 to 3 hours
This is a FREE Event

Meet us at the Temple; and join us in a Chicago tradition of expressing Thelema throughout the city; in the form of guerrilla art. In the same spirit as the successful “Hex in the City” Art Project held here on a previous Three Days; we will be fanning out through the great city of Chicago in teams armed with either an Eye, a Dove, or a Cup. Each team will then set off in a cardinal direction (East is sadly taken up by our local Great Lake) and get pictures of their sacred symbol in interesting venues across the Chicagoland Area. After the Three Days are concluded the digital artists at Aum. Ha. will create juxtaposed Lamens out of the images that will be displayed on our Website for all to see. Come and join in the fun of creating some art with us here in Chicago, and contributing to the greater movement of Thelemic Art in America.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own cameras for personal photos as well.

Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram Workshop – 4pm
The cost of this event is 5 dollars
(Free to Members of the Lodge)

One of the first, most fundamental, and important elements of Ceremonial Magick that can be, and must be, learned is the Banishing Rite. Although they come in an almost infinite amount of styles; one of the first and most potent is the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram. For this Workshop attendees will learn the importance of Banishing Rites and the practical instruction on how to perform the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram. So join us and learn the value of having the LBRP as Magickal Tool in your arsenal; or brush up on an essential Ritual for all Ceremonial Magicians.
