"The Christians have a term, "witnessing your faith", and I feel that it is a term just as relevant to those of us who follow pagan paths Hate comes from fear, and fear comes from ignorance. The only way to eradicate hate is to educate, and the best way to educate is by example, not talk."-- Rev. Donna Donovan

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

Sword and Serpent Oasis is a chartered body of Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.) located in the Valley of Dayton, Ohio. We are a community of men and women united in our pursuit of the knowledge and accomplishment of our “True Will”, defined as the one perfect and unique path for each individual. We are focused on the active embodiment of Thelema, in line with the principles of O.T.O. Our goals are to propagate and promote the principles of Thelema, to provide a gateway towards initiation into the O.T.O. for those who seek it, and to devote our activities to education and practice. To this end, we regularly celebrate the Gnostic Mass, our central public ritual, and we also sponsor classes and other opportunities for learning and fellowship among the initiates.
